The excitement is sort of tainted by having just dropped a hard-earned $300 on the ticket, but then, that's irrational given what I'm getting myself into, right? (But how can Spirit Air get away with charging extra for your SEAT? Am I missing something?)
Will add myself to the spreadsheet, Dulc! See everyone there!
I had an airline do this last year, the idea was they charged to have a 'reserved seat' (ie. 15a, an aisle seat!) or something of that sort. the remainder of the passengers got random seats upon boarding.
Not sure if this is the same situation but it could be!
Ohhh, that could have been it. I thought they were telling me that I HAD to choose one, but it was probably optional. Oh well. Now I got a window, suckas!

From there you can take a 3 hour amtrak ride to ann arbor, for relatively cheap. It's not the most convenient, but neither is landing at DTW. In fact, Chicago -> amtrak is probably more convenient for those without a car/local connections or who don't plan on renting a car. Amtrak goes right to downtown ann arbor.
That sounds more fun for next time! I love trains.
