Excellent place to get a legal education

5.0 of 5 stars

February 2016 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

Michigan has great professors, a collegial atmosphere, and a beautiful campus. Job prospects are strong - the Michigan brand carriers throughout the country.

Downers

Tuition is expensive, and it continues to rise. Not a fan of the underground, green carpeted library.

Comments

If you are considering public interest, Michigan has an outstanding loan repayment assistance program.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Uppers

Collegiate atmosphere, supportive community, accessible professors, awesome clinical program, powerful and far-reaching alumni network.

Downers

That UMLS is not located in a major legal market can be frustrating as the school may not have quite as many connections to organizations or firms in a given city.

Comments

In terms of cost, spending three years in Ann Arbor will save you thousands compared to most major cities.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Incredible experience

Uppers

The students professors are excellent. Great clinical opportunities for students who want a more hands-on education. Challenging, yet rewarding experience.

Downers

The winters are known to be cold, if this school was in California it would probably rank in the top 5 law schools in the country.

Comments

The alumni connections, academic rigor, and prestigious reputation remain the biggest advantages for attending Michigan Law.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Best law school with a good quality of life

5.0 of 5 stars

October 2015 | FORMER STUDENT

Uppers

The quality of professors is amazing. They're also very approachable. The new law school building means that there's a lot of space, and everything looks very new. Football!

Downers

The winters are very cold, and there's no getting away from that.

Comments

Students from Michigan go to every market. The downside is that a lot of the friends you make in law school will end up being very far away from you after graduation.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Best Law School

5.0 of 5 stars

August 2015 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

People, culture, sports, school spirit, campus, brand, alumni base, job prospects

Downers

Weather, but really not much else. Words words words words.

Comments

You should go to this school no matter what. It is the best.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Limited opportunities

August 2015 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

Excellent faculty with top-notch credentials and genuine enthusiasm for teaching

Downers

Poor career prospects compared to peer schools (in terms of large law firm and clerkship placement)

Comments

I would advise considering peer schools if you get into them -- job placement at Michigan is noticeably poor in comparison

Would You Recommend

No

Great school, friendly atmosphere

Uppers

students are collaborative, not cut-throat. Gorgeous campus and great college town.

Downers

once you leave Ann Arbor, you are in the middle of nowhere....

Comments

Great faculty, beautiful facilities. Live off campus (in downtown Ann Arbor) if you can - less stress.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Excellent place to get a legal education

5.0 of 5 stars

August 2015 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

Exceptionally talented, social, and ambitious students permeate the student body

Downers

Due to location, the school will struggle to place students in major cities during a down economy

Comments

I wouldn't go here without a substantial scholarship or outside funding, it's a great school, but not as strong as the "T6" schools.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Quintessential Law School Campus

5.0 of 5 stars

August 2015 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

Historic, gothic architecture lines the sprawling, lush green lawns of the law quad.

Downers

Tuition rates continue to rise faster than employment prospects do.

Comments

The mix of collegiality, rigorous academics, and exceptional career prospects that Michigan offers is unmatched at any other law school.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Review of Michigan Law School.

5.0 of 5 stars

June 2015 | CURRENT STUDENT

Uppers

Beautiful campus. Very friendly environment. Same opportunities as other top law schools, but lower cost of living. Many very well respected professors.
Ann Arbor is a great town.
Good loan repayment assistance program.
Very pleasant student body. It is hard to imagine a law school full of nicer people.

Downers

The law school is not located in a major market (although that can also be a good thing i.e. lower cost of living, students take jobs all over the country).

Comments

Michigan is a great choice for law school. Its U.S. news ranking has dipped a little bit, but that is because the school has been more transparent about job placement data than other schools, and it has put funds towards a good loan repayment assistance program rather than tons of school funded jobs.
Michigan has a very collegial environment. One of the reasons for this is that students travel to many different areas to work after law school so students don't feel like they are competing with each other for the same jobs.
