Now, I live in Tallahassee so I could be completely wrong, but I've heard that many parts of   Michigan are suffering from huge bits of unemployment and poverty after so many auto plants have closed.  I'd look at each of the city's unemployment rates, crime rates, and what the educated population is like in each.  If you do end up living in Michigan and taking the Michigan bar, you might want to be in a stable area.



Just wanted to clarify that Michigan isn't as bad as that paragraph makes it sound. Yes, it is going through some hard times as is the nation, but there aren't a bunch of unemployed homeless people running around everywhere increasing the crime rates or anything... and like I said before, Grand Rapids is really up and coming, and a lot of money is being invested there... it would make for a nice place to live and be a student.

Like I said, I live in Florida... So I don't know what it is like to live in Michigan... I do talk to prospective students who want to come to my school for ug recruiting, and some of them are from Michigan and have been saying that they want to get out because of the unemployment... But again, never been to Michigan and was just trying to be helpful.

I'm from Michigan and I would go to the Rochester campus, provided it's actually accredited now.  Nicest place to live of the three and it's on an actual university campus, which makes it feel less like a degree mill, I imagine.  Well, maybe the other two are on university campuses, as well, I have no clue. 

Lansing's is not. It's in downtown-which does have it's benefits. For example the capitol building is a block down the street.

Most of Michigan is a slum.  Unless you're in Detroit... oh wait, isnt Detroit the most disgusting city in this country?

Hahaha, sounds like you got a lot of your information about Michigan from "Bowling For Columbine" and "Roger and Me".

I don't know much about Cooley.  However if i were making this decision I would probably choose the Lansing campus.  Being a LS in the capitol city might lead to some decent opportunities provided you do well.

I guess it depends on whether that matters to you or if the livability of the city matters to you.

I am not going to stay in Michigan, even if I do end up graduating from Cooley.  I am moving back to Miami and take the bar here.

HTH!!

Why not Nova, FIU, Florida Coastal?  Seeing as you haven't even taken the LSAT yet, these should all be in reach with some prep for the test.
