Damn, I was hoping this thread was going to be about robot professors and hovercars...

It sounds like some soft of nerdy Disney film title...

The University of Michigan has their "The Michigan Difference" Campaign which has raised over 2billion dollars, and will total over 2.5 billion.  $100million or so will go to the law school.  So safe to say UM is going to stay in T14

They only care about what school you went to for your first placement.

so, when Im looking to get a tenure-track professorship or fortune 500 GC job in 10 years I can say Cooley or Yale and it wont matter?
 
thanks for the advice

Basically.

Well, maybe not Cooley.

If you want to be a tenured Professor, you better start publishing though.
