    Note that "arse" was spelled correctly in rugby context.

    But seriously, Michigan has the highest ranked law school in this group (usually regarded as a top 6 or 7 law school by Big Law), and they admit roughly 70-80 Michigan graduates annually.

    His interests does not run to rugby, like his father's did at the time. JHU is award is very generous and still have not seen GT. But like the idea of being able to jump in the car and being there in 4 hours.

    Most years, 40-50 Michigan graduates enroll in Michigan Law School, but many more are admitted and choose to go elsewhere. Typically, 20 enroll at HYS Law schools, and another 40-50 enroll in other T-14 Law schools. The last three years, over 90% of Michigan students who apply to Law schools are accepted into at least one program. Georgetown and UVa have equally impressive placements.

    Michigan Law grad here. Just to clarify, Michigan Law accepts a lot of people from its undergrad, but that is because they are residents of the State of Michigan, not because they went to U of M. There is a preference for in-state students, and they always make up about 20 percent of the law school class. You don't become a resident by going to the U of M as an undergrad, so I'm not sure that an out of state student would have any admissions advantage by having gone there.

    I suspect that UVa is the same.

    ThankYouforHelp, you make a good point, although residents make up 65% of LSA students, so it stands to reason that a large portion of Michigan graduates who enroll at Michigan Law are residents. I doubt the Law School distinguishes based on resident status. Other than the Medical school, graduate programs at Michigan are not obligated to admitting residents.

    Agreed. I'm pretty sure Law School admissions distinguishes a little - the last thing you want to do is aggravate the Michigan Legislature. :D

    We did the admitted students visit at both GT and JHU, he liked both the money is the same. I think he is leaning JHU, because its not as religious. He was a little put off by the Crucifix in the classrooms.

    He can't go wrong with either schools but I think Mich is better. It has everything anyone could want in a school and its top notch
