I don't have a type...I don't really date alot, but when I do the guys are totally varied from punky, dark haired intellectuals to an abercrombie model with a good sense of humor and excellent manners.
I have never been in a relationship with anyone who was totally wrong for me, abusive, or worse. These guys just didn't work out because they weren't what I wanted at the time.

I agree with you, girls do not know what they want...but if not anything else, they hope to find a guy who is attractive to some extent, intelligent to some extent, and caring/nice. I also look for a sense of humor, so thumbs up to alot of you on this board...you're a step above the rest.
I thought the south would have alot of good guys, you know, with the southern charm, downhome values, and all.
Haha, do any of you live in Michigan or have even been here?
Thanks for your helpful comments, Andrea...and Jesus.
Let me give you a little perspective about the legal job market in Michigan. First of all, metro-Detroit (which includes Detroit and everything within a 30 minute commute in every direction) is the legal epicenter of Michigan. Sure, Lansing is the capitol but very few firms operate out of the city. Every place else in Michigan is farmland covered in snow, uninteresting, and certainly not bustling with successful attorneys.
Everything happens in downtown Detroit; every large firm in Michigan operates their main office out of Detroit or its surrounding area. Wayne State is five minutes from where these firms are located, five minutes from four seperate courts, and although in a "bad area" of Detroit, I'm sure you can say the same thing about UCLA, Loyola LA, or any other great school in Los Angeles--except we can actually see the blue part in our skies.
If you want a big firm job, you will work in metro-Detroit. I challenge people to look at the top firms in Michigan and to look at the attorney profiles. I guarantee that you will find less MSU,UDM, or Cooley grads than Michigan and Wayne grads. I promise it.
Also, keep in mind that not all of these firms even interview in E. Lansing. All of these firms interview on campus at Wayne. Its five minutes away, why not?
If anyone has any questions about the legal market, Wayne, MSU, or any other school in Michigan, I actually live here and have worked in the industry for three years. I have friends in both U of M, Wayne, and MSU's law schools, I know people who went to UDM and I know people who went to Cooley. I can give you some factual answers and an educated perspective.

I thought of another con:
Traffic during the commute because the only place that is affordable to live is 25-30 minutes away. You can get a roommate and live closer, but it will still be $650-800 minimum (or so I have been told).
Living on campus is $5,499 per semester.
