at UoM now...

Dear all,

I am a current student at Umich, classes have started about 1 month ago and I would like to share my thougths.

The university is beautifullllllllllllllllll!!! it is a real traditional stone made law school, i just love it!
The city is a small town but it is not "countryside". It is a college town and all you can see are thousands of young people walking down the streets. I was living in NY for 2 years before caming here, and i can tell that here you will find amazing restaurants, thousands of bars annd places to spend your (not that much) free time, but the nightclubs are limited, there are maybe 8-10 of them it this is it!.
Every saturday it is been party on the streets, tailgates everywhere and the ciity gets maize (at least during futball season).

About the school, I am just LOVING it! I like pretty much all my professors and believe they are amazing. The students are good too. We are only 40 LLMs and i am, virtually, the only international student in all my classes, which is amazing if you want to go deep down on the american way of thinking (specially if you want to land a job in US). however the school doesn't have a really good network in many countries (difficult to get a good international brand name with only 40 internationals every year) the school is among the very top schools in US and everybody here knows that, by everybody I mean every person and law firm...
The upper classes are relatively small...I am taking a seminar with about 10 people on it and an international class with about 30 people...the selection of courses cover everything that i can think of...the staff is amazing and very helpful...you dont really need a car to live here, but it would be very convenient to have one...the school has a more cooperative enviroment than competitive one when compared with other top schools, but it is still very competitive. The grades are forced together with JD's, so you have to work your ass if you want to do good, but as almost all law schools, i don't believe anyone fails, people just get a lower GPA, which is bad anyways...
well, these are my overall impression untill now, please send me a PM if you have any doubts about it. Hope you all find the right law school!
cheers...
