I went to ASW at Mich and I had a blast. I'll admit that I do want to justify the debt. I was able to bring the debt down from $150K to $115K. I was wondering if the drop changed anyone's opinion.

Thanks TipTravHoot, we certainly have come a long way since studying for LSAT in the LSAT prep forum. I hope you had a great cycle as well. IIRC you were considering Ohio State. Have you 100% decided on OSU?

So what about all of the other graduates from UGA? Emory? All of those classes of law students that want prestigious firm work in Atlanta? You'd better do pretty damn well to distinguish yourself from all of these individuals competing for jobs in this market if you go to UGA. Oh, and don't forget that you have T14 grads from around the country aiming for secondary markets and having great success if they can demonstrate ties to the area. You'll be competing against them too. But it's cool - if you go to UGA you'll have lots of options and the opportunity to practice in a great Atlanta firm, just like that. At Michigan? Unemployment FTL. Obvsies.
FlightoftheEarls makes a good point that addresses some of my main concerns. I'm worried about limiting myelf ITE, and I think being lower on the food chain than some of the other schools you are competing with, may end up hurting me no matter what type of law I want.
