Michigan vs Virginia
« on: April 19, 2008, 08:06:30 AM »
Dear all

I have already checked the discussion board about this topic. There seems everyone agrees that these two schools are really at the same level. So I still can't make my mind.

The reason I wanna go to Michigan is that my undergraduate school is kind of a liberal art school. So I always dreaming about going to a school that contains with great medical or engineering school. However, everybody says Ann Arbor is really cold. I don't like to live in such a cold environment.

On the other hand, the reason I want to go to Virginia is that it locates near to DC, and more comply with my career goal. However, you guys seems like Ann Arbor better than C-ville, and I may feel boring if I go to a school that similar to my undergraduate.

What will you guys think? Is Ann Arbor really that wonderful than C-ville?
Any advice will be thankful?

Charlottesville isn't boring. As long as you don't go there expecting it to be like New York or DC, you won't have a problem. My advice is that they're basically the same school and beyond maybe a few special programs, you should probably decide based on the weather or just go visit both places and see which you like better.

Do yourself a favor and go to Michigan.

Charlottesville may be a small town, but Ann Arbor is super dull.  Ask a local what to do for entertainment, and the answer is always:  "Go to Detroit; but don't get mugged."
Both schools are supposed to have a "national" reach, but the local job markets, or at least the job markets within  100 miles or so, are probably better for UVA.  Charlottesville is close to DC, and the much of the rest of the mid-Atlantic is within a few hundred miles.  People are moving out of Michigan so fast large parts of Detroit are ghost towns (literally); the only bright spot in the local region (the Great Lakes, aka the Rust Belt) is Chicago.
And, yes, the weather in Michigan totally, totally stinks.

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.
