a better way to ask this question - Which school has fewer (creepy) TLSers?

Exactly. This is nothing but a trollfest, and there are more UVA trolls on TLS. They're peer schools.

Can Berkeley?

And Michigan hasn't failed, just Detroit. Still have the Chicago market to go to.


Last time I checked, detroit was the only meaningful city in michigan. And analogizing the challenges in california (considerable) to those in michigan (catastrophic, apocalyptic) is just laughable.

I have no bone to pick with michigan as a school - its fabulous - but I think this is a real question


In the light of the fact that exactly 2 percent of Michigan's budget is funded by the state, it's really not.

For all practical intents and purposes, Michigan is a private school.

And yet much of this thread is Mich trolls claiming they're not peer schools and Mich is better.

No offense to the OP, but this is ultimately a relatively silly question.

Figure out what your debt would amount to at either place. Go visit schools. Consider which geographic location you'd prefer. Ponder Chicago vs. DC (if applicable). Make a decision. Live long and prosper. Really, it's that simple.

You'd be foolish to think that a couple of spots worth of difference mean anything. UVA and Michigan are as equal as any two schools out there.

The correct answer is that they're both better than Berkeley and Penn.

I'm equally suspicious about UPenn as well. I'm not all that convinced about Penn being better than UVA either.

+1

Michigan + Virginia > Penn + Berkeley

we should just combine schools and dominate. the new institution would be only slightly larger than GULC and 8x the quality. University of Michginia ftw!

weird, I'd have chosen either Berkeley or Penn over Mich/UVA. and I don't suspect it'd have been close.

Ding ding ding! I always hear people stating that the state of Michigan is in economic decline, therefore UM is in decline. This is not so.
