It will also cost you less because Metro Detroit is cheaper to live in. I would go to UDM if I were you.

Since I have so much love for you all on this post, I wanted to post this information here as some inspiration & motivation. Someone on one of the other posts was trying to convince me (and others) that if you graduate from a t3/t4, you won't be able to find a job. When I showed him that this was untrue, he them began to argue that you wouldn't be able to find a job as a lawyer (that you would basically be a legal secretary or paralegal, temp, insurance work, etc). Well, needless to say I proved him wrong: This is a link to a survey of law school grads of 2003. http://www.nalp.org/assets/160_selectedfindings04.pdf 178 ABA schools were surveyed out of the 186 schools accredited at the time. They had a 92% response rate. Out of the almost 37,000 grads almost 75% of them had a job where bar passage is REQUIRED (basically this means that 75% of the law grads are practicing lawyers!). Also, don't think that the legal job market has changed much since then. The NALP released this press release in 2005: http://www.nalp.org/press/details.php?id=55That link was a press release in 2005 that showed that the market for new law graduates is steady. In 2005, 73% of law graduates obtained a job for which bar passage is required.So don't listen to what other people tell you & lets have faith that we will succeed.
