I have weak ties to GR. I did my undergrad about 20 mins from GR. A fair amount of lawyers in GR graduated from my undergrad. My fiance is from GR and her family lives there. (I currently live near Ann Arbor/Detroit.)

No. I'm currently deposited at both schools. I've searched around TLS a bit for a thread discussing how to negotiate stips, but I couldn't really find much advice. Has anybody had success negotiating stips?
Can anybody with direct knowledge of the West Michigan market speak about Wayne vs. MSU employment prospects? Does either school have an edge in West Michigan? My gut says to go to Wayne State because if I can't find any sort of legal work in West Michigan at least I might have an easier time networking in Detroit...
