A lot of good advice in the opinions above. I went to a top-25 law school and graduated 10 years ago. I summered for top NY and DC firms, went to work for the DC firm for a limited amount of time and never practiced again. I have friends who went to Wayne and DCL and are partners in MI firms and have successful careers. Law school is a tool.
When I was interviewing I interviewed at a top DC firm where one of the associates got in my grill about if I thought I was special. He said when he interviewed he was top 3 in his class at Georgetown and lived with his parents for a year after graduating because the market was so bad. He was bitter because I was graduating in a good market and he graduated in a bad market. I got an offer at that firm.
Now is a bad market. I was part of an interview panel at a firm and it was very depressing. People were dying for any sort of job.
I will say this. Wayne State is well-respected as a top law firm in the region. If you can go there for 75% cost that is a pretty good deal. Iowa and Wisconsin are very good schools. MSU has a good school where you can make a go at it. Hopefully the market will be better by the time you graduate.
There is no right answer. You have a tough decision to make. But if you work hard, good things will come to you.

We need some words of encouragement from Bacari Alexander.
It is not surprising Burke is checking out his options. He was 2nd team all-American and Big 10 Freshman of the year. Smotrycz is upsetting, but won't end everything. Smotrycz had a tough year playing well in fits and starts. Smotrycz had a good game against Ohio marred by the last turnover. Smotrycz would have been a major contributor next year but alas he will contribute somewhere else.
Next year, you cannot deny the talent coming in. As opposed to Ammaker who never seemed to improve players once they got here,Beilein gets his players to play above their talent level. Future of Michigan basketball is bright. These transfers will not stop it. Best of luck to them. things don't always work out for players but these are good kids who represented the university well. But onward and upward. Bring me McGary and GR3 and queme los barcos.

In other news, a fist fight broke out in an Ann Arbor house between two men on St. Patrick's Day arguing over literature. True story.

Seriously, exploration. Ridiculous. Wonder if his minor is Rubik's Cube Solving?

The Big 10 usually has 8-9 teams in teams in the top 25 so almost every wrestler Russell wrestles is a talented wrestler.Doing this against the talent Kellen Russell has done this against is truly remarkable.

Four friends and I wore maize shirts in the 4th row behind the visitors bench in the 1995-1996 season. They always held 3 rows for visiting players' families and friends. It was our senior year and the first year they awarded tickets in the student section based on seniority and not first-come, first-serve. I wish I could take credit but it was my friend's idea. I don't have my shirt, but my friends do. We will send the pics to the email. If you watch any televised game (which in those days could always be seen on Raycom if not CBS, ESPN) they will show us.

We had our chances. We needed a little more luck on shots and a little more size. Hopefully a healthy Horford helps give us some more depth to play these guys. We can beat them at Crisler.

Tremendous night for the team and coaches that was well-deserved. I have never seen Laurel Manor that packed. A little disappointed in Desmond who is normally outstanding and a class act. Desmond went on a strange segue where he alluded to the prior coaching staff and administration's "strange decision making" and then compared it to marketers making consumers drink cherry coke instead of coke. Desmond did sit for hours signing autographs and was very complimentary of the current players and coaching staff. A great night featuring Desmond, Shoelace's MVP, some very classy senior speeches and a very cute scholarship award-winning female. Good times were had by all and a good night to cap off the regular season.
|5 years 10 weeks ago||Beilein and Burke will get their due||
Besides maybe Brad Stevens, is there a coach who does as much with his roster than Belein accomplishes with his players, year in and year out?
Burke's play in Maui was incredible. To have a freshman step up the way Burke did, and keep a level head on that stage shows how big time this guy is going to be. Clear some space for Belein and Burke. They will get their due.

On taste of the town in New Orleans. That's good tv.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||We are not used to getting out-toughed or outdefended||
But it happens. I was disappointed but not as up in arms about this game. The boys played their skulls out in Maui and probably were a little tired. Virginia played tough d and had a talented big man. We shot pretty well, made some poor decisions but caught a bad streak. All in all, we didn't play our best, but didn't play bad either. I am not happy about this loss but ok with it.
With you about Hardaway, wish he played more in the first half. Seemed not able to get in a groove after the extended sit. Maybe I am more zen than I should be, but I am still very excited about this team's prospects.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||It happens||
Long trip back from Maui. Rough road game. Good defense. Good big man. Good coach. We can't afford to have Hardaway struggle during games or this is a likely outcome. On the bright side, Burke looked very good. Hardaway is tough. this team is tough. Better days ahead.
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Virginia's defense is ferocious so far||
Thankfully, they don't shoot very well
|5 years 11 weeks ago||Another very good road test||
Virginia is a good defensive team. Another very good road test for this tough Michigan team.

Not even close. Media got it right, coaches got it wrong.

|5 years 12 weeks ago||Students were "Beat Ohio" yelling, pompom waving crazies||
What a game. Student section (and whole stadium) was on fire. The fact the stadium gets loud adds a whole new dynamic. UTL was louder at the end, but OSU was loud the whole way through. "Beat Ohio" chant during OSU band was incredible. Favorite part for me was when "Don't Stop Believing" was playing and fans were aggressively shaking their yellow pom-poms to the song while singing loudly. Fearsome!
|5 years 12 weeks ago||Give credit to Hoke||
Whether it was intentional or not, by calling it Ohio, Hoke has created yet another dimension in the rivalry. With OSU being a university that is so full of itself, it insists on calling itself "The Ohio State University", Hoke undercuts them by just saying 'I have always called the Ohio' and gotten our entire fan base to do likewise. Listening to the "Beat Ohio" chant at the Nebraska game was amazing. Then hearing it in Maui brought it to a whole new level. Whether intentional or accidential, Mr. Hoke--pure genius.
|5 years 12 weeks ago||They are higher up, but you can see well||
The sightlines from every seat in Crisler aren't bad. Plus they have a mega-new scoreboard which mimics the football scoreboard (obviously much smaller, but same large video). Your view should be fine.
My season tickets are sec 216, row 35. Sec 206 are much more central, almost half-court. You are high, but should see fine.
Most importantly, the team is outstanding. You will like what you see.

And how do you not love Zack Novak?
|5 years 12 weeks ago||UM looking good||
UCLA is a good team. But UM looking good. Burke is already a force. We might have lost to Duke but we found our point guard.

|5 years 12 weeks ago||Great team. Great fans.||
Going from MSU and OSU couldn't be more different. No Whiskey tango, Nebraska fans are polite and smart about football. I was very impressed with their fans.

There's no going back. Michigan wins Maui.
|5 years 13 weeks ago||State Universities||
Many times state universities have special constitutional provisions. University of Michigan is most commonly called a special "creature" of the State of Michigan allowing it certain protections. Previous posts are correct that exemption from FOIA will not stop prosecutors from examining records, but it could prevent the public from ever seeing the records. It's too bad. FOIA should be limited to a state university. It's the citizens who are subsidizing it.

I'd like to take my wisdom from Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band's amazing, insightful album about challenges facing the blue collar working class. My feelings on the game are best summed up in "Atlantic City":
"Now I've been looking for a win, but it's hard to find. Down here it's just winners and losers and don't get caught on the wrong side of that line. I'm tired of coming out on the losing end. So last night I talked to Denard and I told him to stop throwing interceptions."--Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Atlantic City, Nebraska, 1982.

If Sharp, Snyder or Rosenberg wrote it, it's likely wrong. Working through "Three and Out" and so fired up that Brian took Rosenberg to task. Makes me like this blog even more.
|5 years 16 weeks ago||Kovacs was totally missed today||
Defense was ok, but Kovacs's presence was missed. Did we have any loose fumbles? Kovacs always seems to be making things happen. Hope he comes back soon.

But no one gives a post-game interview with as much eloquence as Kirk Cousins. Very articulate.
