would actually love it if Brown had an LS


Providence is, bar none, the worst city in the US.

I really like Brown, but no way I would want to spend a year in that hellhole.

I think BLS (lol) would be a lot like Yale, though not sure where it would fit in the rankings.

I'm basing that statement only on the culture of Brown's UG, though I guess there's no reason to really suspect that it would have a similar LS environment (see: Duke UG vs. Duke LS).

UMich because it's architecture is essentially Hogwarts, but with more magic.

Also the food in Ann Arbor is so good... Zingermans, Angelos, Jolly Pumpkin, Blue Tractor, Gratzi... And pretty much everything on Main Street I would like to have as my last meal. And when I'm feeling like a burger there's Blimpy's and Quickie Burger. And Pizza Bob's and Pizza House have the best shakes in the universe and they're just a couple blocks away.

There's so many bookstores like Dawn Treader over on Liberty and Nicola's in Westgate. And I hear they're opening a new one called Literati that I'm excited for.

There's the art museum right nearby the law school if I wanted to see some beautiful art. And there's also the anthropological museum right nearby as well. I could take walks in the Arboretum during spring mornings and through the Diag on cold winter nights.

No, I don't romanticize that place at all.

When i was in admissions I flew Michigan and took admitted students from UM to dinner at Gratzi 3 years in a row. Those were some of the best 3 meals, I LOVED that place.

Of course, I am also 20 pounds lighter than my admissions years on the road, but I still think I may trade that back for annual 'Gratzi dinners :)
