Yes, we know they rejected you, but enough is enough. Stop your incessant bitching.
I didn't even apply there and wouldn't ever apply there (unless they moved to SoCal, DC, or NYC). I call it like I see it--you can honestly say you would rather be in Madison than NYC? DC? LA? Yeah...right.
Ok. I wasn't planning on posting, but I can't believe someone is actually dogging Madison. I've lived in three big ten college towns, none of which is Madison, and I can say without a doubt that I enjoyed visiting Madison far better than any of the ones that lived in (AA, EL and Bloomington). Madison is tops for college towns, especially since it actually is a fairly decent city in own right.
And for whats its worth, I absolutely hate LA and am not too fond of DC. You just seem to want to be an 'important' city, which isn't necessarily high on most, or even a few, peoples lists. There is definitely an equal, if not larger, population that absolutely loves living in a college towns and benefiting from the culture, energy and intelligent population without all the negatives of larger cities. What do you think one of the big appeals of academia is?
Historically speaking, Wisconsin was always a well-reputed law school and probably the third best Big Ten law school. For that reason alone, it still carries a lot of weight with some older (hiring) partners. Its the same thing that goes for Michigan, but obviously not as extreme.
