Michigan is a great school overall. Post graduation, the school name carries a lot of weight when it comes to finding a job. Make sure you get a plethora of experiences-study abroad, school sponsored internships, take courses outside of your major, etcetera. If there's any idea for a student org or business or start up you have- use those resources! They are there. There's so much you get that's paid for in your tuition. Take advantage of it.
Review University of Michigan - Ann Arbor
The education that you receive here is definitely unbeatable. The campus is also a generally fun place to be. It is really competitive so that permeates the culture quite a bit, which I could do without. The university's commitment to diversity and inclusion is lacking, but they are making steps to change that going forward so I hope that there will be more positive steps in that area. You don't really get a sense of the local area because the campus is so large it really dominates the city of Ann Arbor. So, even when you venture out in the city a bit, it still feels like you're on campus. It's just very much a college town, so if you're into that, you'll love it!
I love my school and all the opportunities it gives me! Classes are challenging, but the social atmosphere balances out the work load. There's a constant availability of extra curricular activities, whether that be volunteer events, clubs, intramural sports, or research. The school even puts on different events for students to help us destress. I couldn't imagine attending another university.
