What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Michigan has always been my dream school. Now that I'm actually enrolled there, I have a much more accurate view of what the college is actually like. It is a very large campus, but the organizations and other activities make it a lot smaller. I've had a very positive experience with my advisor, though not all are like him. The classes I've taken so far are challenging, but it is not unexpected due to the high level of academics at the college. There definitely could be improvements. I feel this especially with the mental health care they offer to students. It's not the most accessible and the care is not always the best, which has led me to avoid it despite actually needing it. Overall, it is an amazing university and I feel lucky that I'm able to study here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have just completed my freshman year at U-M, and I am incredibly excited to return this Fall. My general opinion is that there is a place for everybody on campus, whether you love the football games, live for incredible food (which can be found all throughout Ann Arbor), tend to reside in calm environments, or need constant faculty-student communication. There are so many possibilities on this campus, and the atmosphere of the student body is very open-minded, happy, and hard-working. You can't go wrong with the University of Michigan.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The main thing one must look at before choosing a college is academics—that is Priority Number 1. Without a doubt, the University of Michigan has a prestigious academic record, proven to me by attending class for 16 hours a week; by the achievements, resumes, and dedication of the staff; and by the rigor of the workload. Weirdly enough, however, academics are not everything when it comes to my review. With just academics, not factoring in anything else, I would give U of M four stars. To receive five stars, a university must provide me with more than just typical classwork. What really tipped the scale for me in giving U of M a perfect five-star review is a combination of factors that come down to one general category: the people. In my case, it’s my two mentors, who took me under them in their lab space doing groundbreaking work dedicated to flipping the negative narrative surrounding urban communities, particularly communities of color, into a positive one. Both guided me in my acquirement of graduate and Ph.D. level skills, but even more meaningful, they showed me what it means to dedicate one’s life to serving and contributing to the greater good—living a life of pure love. It’s the group of thoughtful, loyal, and driven friends who entered my life and truly got me through the year. Without the hours of conversation I spent with them lying on our dorm floors, studying in courtyards and libraries, over meals, without the adventures we experienced exploring Ann Arbor, attending campus events (especially the football games! Go Blue!), dancing the night away to horrible music in clubs, I would not have loved U of M as much as I do. I cannot put into words the depth and intimacy of our relationships. I hope to keep these people in my life forever, and U of M gave them to me. It’s my free counselor on campus who guided me through the emotional ups and downs of being a new adult and college student. It’s the members of the clubs I joined who share in my passions. It’s the acquaintances in my classes who blew me away with their knowledge. It’s the random law student who struck up a conversation with me in the Law Quad on campus and gave me her number telling me to “Contact her anytime, even if it’s years from now!” It’s the strangers on the street who gave me directions. The people make University of Michigan a five-star university. Without them, my education would be an empty degree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Michigan was the perfect place for me to spend my undergrad and I am grateful for the many career-long connections I made during my time there. I found a family with the nuclear engineering department and the most wonderful friends I have ever had. There are so many memories I made that I hope I’ll never forgot. However, the College of Engineering at U of M makes you scrape and claw for every little bit of success. They demand that their students be leaders and best. Because of this many professors I interacted with at the university were arrogant and had unreasonable expectations. I could compete. Yet, I tired. Now that I have graduated, I couldn’t be happier to move onto the next phase in my life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Michigan-Ann Arbor is a safe and diverse place where I have learned more about the world today in my two years of attending school there than in my previous 18 years of life. The classes are interesting and have each left a positive impact on me. I love how they support all people and can give their students the ability to explore any interests they already have or want to delve into more deeply.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When it comes to academics at the University of Michigan, the devil is certainly in the details, and all prospective students will no doubt come face to face with the devil early on in their academic career. If you're somebody who has always been successful academically without working hard, I really do suggest you come here, but maybe not for reasons you might think. One of the biggest benefits you can get for attending this institution is the guarantee that you will develop a monster work ethic that will prove to be critical in whatever career field you do. A strong work ethic is a must or you will find yourself unsuccessful, especially when you get to the more difficult classes. Enough about the academics, though. If you're interested in the school, I'm sure you know that the prestige and academics are among the best. It's important, however, to understand what differentiates the University of Michigan from other top-tier schools across the country. Let's start with the biggest reason. Literally, the biggest reason. The Big House. The biggest football stadium in AMERICA, with a capacity of over 107,000. Even if you're not a big football fan, attending the Big House on a football Saturday in the fall is an unforgettable experience you can carry with you everywhere. When it comes to campus organizations, it would be easier to detail what there isn't rather than what there is. Everything you could want in a school when it comes to organizations is available, ranging from Greek Life, to professional fraternities, to sports organizations and intramural sports, to squirrel feeding clubs and everything in between. With a school this big, I can promise without a shadow of a doubt that any incoming students will find a family of people who share the same interests as them, and the best way to do so is to get involved. The quality of instruction is top notch. We have some of the leading researchers in their entire fields lecturing us, such as Terry Robinson, one of the worldwide top researchers in the Drug and Neuroscience field, and Gerard Mourou, laser expert and 2018 Nobel Prize winner. It's a great place to make unparalleled connections and inroads with faculty and students alike. It's hard to express everything I love about this place. Yeah, it's a lot of hard work, but it's material that is taught and presented in an interesting way that makes learning it enjoyable. There are hundreds of helping centers across campus that can provide assistance in every single class you can take. The campus is beautiful, and is located in one of the best college towns in the country. Sports are great. People are great. Faculty is great. Ann Arbor is great. Most importantly, if you are even considering attending this school, you are great. There is no doubt in my mind that everyone who comes here will be successful if they want to, and everyone finds a place. Go blue.

Great school with an outstanding reputation, the campus is beautiful, especially the old buildings but there are also state of the art facilities. I felt very safe even at night. It is one of the top engineering schools and all the people I met there were great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Michigan is an all-star school. Not only do students do homework 7 days a week, the go out just about every night, too! There is no doubt someone would find their "squad" somewhere on campus. "Work hard, play hard" is not just a saying - it's a way of life. Students can be found doing things like researching, partying, exercising, sleeping, and everything in between. One never gets tired of people watching at the league or in Mason Hall, because the campus is so diverse! I could not imagine myself anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great university. I love it there. We have many academic resources to use. We have gym, transportation even for night. For any type of problem there are resources to use in campus to help us. The community is very welcoming and there are many opportunity. With that you can find almost any type of clubs or organization you are looking for.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Michigan is a rigorous but rewarding school. Students who put in an active effort and take control of their education will find a campus community that is very eager to help them succeed. Students who want to be challenged, make long-term friendships, and find mentors through networking should attend this school.
