None of these schools are "better" than U of M. Listen, kid: your rank at these schools is FAR FAR FAR FAR FAR more important than the school's rank.
Outside of the "national" schools, it's important to pick a school AFTER researching your desired market. Find some firms where you would like to work in the DC area and read their attorney profiles to see which schools are well-represented. If you'd like to work in a gov't agency, find some lawyers who work there and speak to them. Rank doesn't really matter in these cases as much as "will this school position me to find a job in my market?"

Are you saying, I should be more concerned with where I rank amongst the students therefore I should go to a school where I rank among the top? I am trying to figure out what you meant exactly. If that's what you meant I am thinking about that too because you got a poin there.
