SwampFox, you clearly have no idea what you're talking about when it comes to Michigan. Ann Arbor is a sweet city, with tons to do. Whether you're a culture whore, or a sports buff... it has it all. And when it comes to job placement.. have you been living on the far side of the moon for the past 100 years? Michigan will land you at top firms in just about any major US market. People don't attend UM law to work in Michigan, so that point is 100% null. The only thing you're right about is the weather. Long winters.
