I've never heard of anyone getting shot heading home from the quad in Ann Arbor.
OK, that's kind of unfair. Both schools are fantastic. Marginally-to-significantly better chances at academia/clerkships from Chicago than from Michigan. More externship type opportunities too, being in Chicago instead of Ann Arbor.
The schools couldn't be more different in terms of character. Visit both (though it's hard now when it's just summers here and probably no one in Chicago) and see where you get the better vibe.
Hey! What do you mean, "just summers?" What more do you need?
Eh. It'd be more fun for them to come when everyone's back, and the summers, who had the run of the place for a few months, suddenly feel like the low (wo)men on the totem pole, shocked that they no longer have control of the asylum. Then the summers start looking around for someone to feel superior to, so they look down upon the new 1L's. But the new 1L's are being pampered and payed attention to, and the summers resent this even more.
Just you wait.
