Better job opps in Midwest - U of Toledo or MSU?

I need to decide between two equally ranked schools: Toledo and Michigan State. I want to work in Midwest and wondering which school will open more doors outside of their state!

Probably MSU.  About 1/2 of its students come from out of state, and likely return to their home states, which creates a pipeline of alums.  Also, if you check lawschoolnumbers.com, you'll see that MSU gets a lot more firms from NY/CA/DC to interview there. That's not a perfect measure of 'out of state respect,' but it's not bad, either. Still, Toledo is a good school, very student-centered, and is gaining respect among larger Detroit firms.  Sadly, those firms aren't hiring much these days.

Hope this helps some.
