I just read back a bit though and saw that OP said he is against life in a big city so I can now see why NU isn't being talked about as much.
Although, also because of the west coast bias. It seems people feel Mich really does have a larger alumni base in LA which has a non-negligible impact on making it back out west.

Right now Michigan is having a comparatively harder time placing their grads period. The statistics should trump the anecdotes I think but maybe I'm wrong.
