    never mention another job offer during an interview its tacky and it could back fire. say yes and if the Chi job doesnt call u back then no harm no foul. the purpose of the job interview is to get a job and you have one in mi waiting on you if the other comes through then good for you. half of some beats all of none.

    Play these good cards you've been dealt correctly!
    Accept the Michigan offer. You will have NOTHING to lose if Chicago comes through and then must decline. Of course , you would not start an orientation. This will buy you time.

    Ask in the interview.. what is the next step and how soon can I start?
    Playing the hiring game is hard... make sure it is on YOUR field.

    Good luck.. keep us posted.
