In response to the various state economies..
I'm not interested in the business aspects of it. I'd be more than happy to work for one of those unions or in public service or nonprofit etc. I like the Great Lakes region for its affordable cost of living, and I'll find something to live within those means.
I'm moving to the Ann Arbor campus, and from what I've seen Ann Arbor seems to be thriving. And, I already have a job for when I move up in the nonprofit area.
From my experience living in Florida the business economy isn't the best. Sure there are the financial planning companies and banks. But a great deal of the financial industry here is growing in the debt collection area and telemarketing- it might be a way to make money, but its probably not where you'd want to be. However, if insurance is your thing we have tons of that (and Cooley does have an LLM program for insurance law.. just a random addition).
Also, we're all law students here so we should know that who happens to be the Governor actually matters... Rick Scott anyone?
