Michigan is a fantastic law school with impressive faculty, awesome surroundings and a valuable degree in recruiting.
Tuition is far too expensive, as with all other elite law schools. I paid back pretty significant student loans for several years.
Which law school (if any) you should attend depends a lot on what type of career you think you want. If you hope to work in BigLaw, you should go to the highest ranked law school that accepts you.

Michigan has great professors, a collegial atmosphere, and a beautiful campus. Job prospects are strong - the Michigan brand carriers throughout the country.
Tuition is expensive, and it continues to rise. Not a fan of the underground, green carpeted library.
If you are considering public interest, Michigan has an outstanding loan repayment assistance program.

Collegiate atmosphere, supportive community, accessible professors, awesome clinical program, powerful and far-reaching alumni network.
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.
In terms of cost, spending three years in Ann Arbor will save you thousands compared to most major cities.

The students professors are excellent. Great clinical opportunities for students who want a more hands-on education. Challenging, yet rewarding experience.
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.
The alumni connections, academic rigor, and prestigious reputation remain the biggest advantages for attending Michigan Law.
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!
The winters are very cold, and there's no getting away from that.
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.
People, culture, sports, school spirit, campus, brand, alumni base, job prospects
Weather, but really not much else. Words words words words.
You should go to this school no matter what. It is the best.
3.0 of 5 stars
Excellent faculty with top-notch credentials and genuine enthusiasm for teaching
Poor career prospects compared to peer schools (in terms of large law firm and clerkship placement)
I would advise considering peer schools if you get into them -- job placement at Michigan is noticeably poor in comparison
students are collaborative, not cut-throat. Gorgeous campus and great college town.
once you leave Ann Arbor, you are in the middle of nowhere....
Great faculty, beautiful facilities. Live off campus (in downtown Ann Arbor) if you can - less stress.
Exceptionally talented, social, and ambitious students permeate the student body
Due to location, the school will struggle to place students in major cities during a down economy
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.
Historic, gothic architecture lines the sprawling, lush green lawns of the law quad.
Tuition rates continue to rise faster than employment prospects do.
The mix of collegiality, rigorous academics, and exceptional career prospects that Michigan offers is unmatched at any other law school.
