OP, what are your preferences for jobs?

If the former, then choose NYU. If the latter, choose Michigan, since it's cheaper.
Also, keep in mind that you would have to endure 3 years in the Midwaste of Michshitgan, while NYU gives you the opportunity to live in Manhattan.
My preference would be CA any job > NY big law. Within reason though. I don't want to be an ambulance chaser in CA.
As to the location, I don't know how I feel about living in a college town. I'm not against it, but I've always lived in big cities so it would be something of a change. I also can't say that I know I'd enjoy living in New York, because I've never lived there and the last time I visited was 6 years ago.
In that case, work on an LOCI to Berkeley. Did you get any cash from USC/UCLA?
