Looking at UDM which is the tier 4 in question all you need to do is check the big firms in the Detroit area. They are littered with UDM grads. UDM has recruitiers from all the major firms in Michigan. The average salary for these firms is about $95000. Now, we do have a top 14 law school in the area, Michigan, but many of those graduates are looking to work in the NY, LA, DC, Chicago firms so that leaves the michigan big firms looking at UDM, Waynes STate, AVE Maria, and MSU. Cooley is recruited almost exclusivly by the Lansing firms. So the bottom line is if you want to work in the immediate area od your law school you are fine but you will not be able to compete realisticaly fro a job in NYC. Which I would say many who attend UDM don't want to do anyways.
