Surprisingly good nlj250 placement, though. Well, at least back before the world went down the shitter.
I'll give you that sometimes they get overlooked on here, but it seems to me that Duke is to Michigan as Michigan is to Chicago. Maybe not a huge difference, but still a gap exists.
I would agree with this, especially since most seem to think that wrt to rankings Michigan is a bit underrated.
If I hypothetically got into both, I'd probably choose Mich, primarily because it's a 3.5 hour drive from home and it places well on the West Coast. Duke is really high on my list though because of its class size, biglaw placement, temperate climate, and for me somewhere like Atlanta is a decent substitute for the West Coast. I'm also happy with them right now because they gave me priority track.
