I'd go Michigan. $40k less in COA is a big difference, and they're comparable schools in terms of employment outcomes. And although I haven't looked too much into Berkeley so can't compare very well, Michigan does seem to have a strong PI culture. I've learned not to assume too much of 0Ls on here--have you looked at the differences between LRAP programs at the two schools? Berkeley has a slightl...
