Where should I go next fall? / Re: Taking UMich over Columbia???

1. Academia is a goal - Advantage Columbia
2. Biglaw is a goal - Advantage Columbia
3. Government is a goal - Advantage Columbia
4. The midwest is a geographic priority - Advantage Michigan (mostly through self-selection)



Okay, any thought on how much of an advantage?  I.e. it is way easier to become a prof from Columbia,etc...

Is it crazy to pick UMich with a small scholarship over Columbia with no scholarship?  I know Columbia is ranked higher, but i do not want to practice in NYC, and I am worried about cost of living.  Will it make a significant difference under the following circumstances??

1. Academia is a goal
2. Biglaw is a goal
3. Government is a goal
4. The midwest is a geographic priority

Thanks.

If you search LSN, you can prettty much see who won the Darrow last year.  It looks several winners were in the 169-173 LSAT range, so it looks like you would stand a great shot.  Good luck!

Looks like the Darrow winners had 3.9 ~ 4.0 GPAs. People w/ higher LSATs but lower GPAs seem to get the ~$50k scholarship.

What about the Dean's Scholarship?  I am guessing above 75%ile LSAT and close to 25%ile or above GPA?

Just received an invitation to apply for the Darrow.  I guess they'll be making the scholarship decisions beginning later this month?

How did you receive this info???

They are really very similar, as Towelie discussed earlier.  I think a visit will really help you decide.  I borrowed my cousin's audi and drove from D.C. to UVA earlier this fall, and it was damn fun to drive those curvy rural highways with the forests and fall colors.  The town is somewhat not that great, but it is not bad.  The Rotunda is cool, the people are nice, the school is off in a great and secluded area of the campus.  Good architecture with recreational fields like .3 miles down the road.  Umich seemed more centralized, but the law quad was an amazing thing to experience.  I think I like Ann Arbor more, and I have heard better things about the undergrad (which is probably not very important).  In the end, I ranked UMICH above UVA for the quality of the JD/MA programs.  UMICH is like #3 in polysci, and if you summer start, you can finish both a MA and JD in 3.5 years (or so I am told).  Last, I got a speeding ticket from the Fairfax County police when I drove back to DC, so the bad mojo started kicking in.
