I'd probably choose based on whether I had a preference for/ties to the south or the midwest. Obviously you should be able to make it anywhere from either school if you do well, but if things go poorly you'll probably end up looking to work somewhere you have ties, and if your school has a strong name in that area it'll be pretty helpful. What Albanach said is also true - UVA's located in a beautiful town and there are a lot of institutional things in place designed to make it a friendly place. Can't really say how it compares to Michigan, but FWIW I've had a good experience here and I think it's a great place to go to law school.
