On the state level, if you want to work in MI, your best bet is to go to a school in MI so you can intern, extern, and network with the state agencies in MI. That means MSU at the right price could be a good option for you. I would do everything in my power to get MSU for free (assuming you can't raise your LSAT enough to make Michigan a realistic and affordable option). What's your uGPA?
When you're talking about regional schools and regional government goals, you should focus heavily on that state's law schools. So you can apply to Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, etc. if you'd like, but realistically I think your best options are Michigan, or MSU/Wayne State for free. If you really want federal government, Michigan is the only school even worth considering in MI, but otherwise you could shoot for other national schools that place better in the federal government (basically USNWR T14 or so).
I would take the above-bolded statement with a LARGE grain of salt.
The discussion previously established that it matters what fed gov job we're talking about, but regardless, fed gov jobs are hard to get from any school immediately following graduation. So is the large grain of salt meant to note that it depends on the job? If so, it's already been covered. If you disagree about how difficult it is to get a fed gov job, fair enough.
Your response clarifies and demonstrates that you agree the above-bolded comment is incorrect but overly broad.
Incorrect? No. Overly broad and incomplete? Sure.
