I went to Michigan undergrad so I can comment on Ann Arbor.

AWESOME. I'm not sure where you are from though, but it gets cold about the 2nd week of Oct and stay that way until mid-March. Like snowing cold.

Yeah, I did. I was really impressed with it, much better than I expected it to be. I wasn't too gung-ho about studying law for three years in a small-ish college town, but it has a lot to offer and it's not that far from Chicago.

Helm: are you jealous of HU that he is going to be in a temperate climate for the next three years?

Jealous of the temperature? Maybe. Jealous of UVA? Hell no.

I think I would take UVA over Mich.

Among the arbitrary reasons are the temperature.

Why is Michigan so awesome and UVA so blah? (Do not account for the fact that UM gave me $$ and UVA WL'd me).

I'll hang up and listen to your answer.

Contrary to popular belief, Dean Z isn't that great.

UVA has beautiful women, more temperate climate, better biglaw and similar clerkship placement. It also has access to one of the most competitive legal markets.

I would like to pursue an associates in home heating and cooling. Does either university offer a dual degree program like that? JD/AC?

I'll also take my answer off the air.

Also, Pras was, is, and always will be wack.

I can't believe I just saw this thread.

What do hopeful and helmholz have to offer people that get accepted to both mich and uva and can't decide where to go? hmmm

This is totally hypothetical because, as both of you know, I have not heard back from either of these schools :P
