Do you think that the rankings for Northwestern will stay high? I've been researching a lot and it seems like this is one of the few years they've broken top 10. I know people say that the US News rankings shouldn't matter as much but I can't help but let it factor into my decision. If they stay equal ranks, I would like to go to Northwestern. Thanks for all your advice so far
I put my deposit down for Michigan but just recently got into Northwestern off of the waitlist. I know that they're tied this year in rankings but Northwestern has historically been lower ranked. I'm not sure what kind of law I want to practice, but I'm thinking probably corporate in a big firm and I know that I want to come back to California after I graduate to work. Does anyone have any insights on which school to pick? I'm mostly concerned with opportunities for coming back to California -- I heard the Michigan has a lot more but I'm drawn to Northwestern because I love Chicago and I feel like there would be a lot of great opportunities there.

The differences will probably give you a better idea:1) location - do you prefer a college town or big city. Big city will obviously offer more opportunities, but Ann Arbor has the small-town charm.2) students - NU places unique emphasis in WE and leadership potential. Do you like your classmates to be more "mature" or would you prefer the "straight from college" type?3) prestige - how important is old-school prestige to you? While NU is a great school, it has never historically ranked at the top like Michigan once did.Good luck!
