This place is great! At first, I was worried about going here instead of Ann Arbor when I was accepted to both campuses, but after a year, I can say that the University of Michigan - Dearborn has exceeded my expectations by far. The best things about the college are the professors and the social atmosphere, which is surprisingly good for a commuter school.

It's got the academic quality of Ann Arbor without having to be bled dry money-wise but because it's designed as a commuter campus, it takes real effort to be involved in student life like clubs or extracurriculars. The bureaucracy can be a headache and good luck with getting your paperwork filed where it needs to be at the right time, because they do this fun thing where they offer you the minimal amount of information on what needs to be filed with who and by what deadline. Their Disability Office is quite nice, very to the point and clear on things like paperwork and such!
Out of all of the universities I applied to, I'm really glad I picked this one. The diversity of students is by far my favorite about this school. Each semester I met students from Brazil, Germany, China, ect.The class sizes are around 30 students, but that's the max.The professors are great and know the subjects they teach very well.Since the university is so diverse, it lets you grow and understand how well the professors and students collaborate together to make sure the material being taught is understood by all 30 students.Because of my time here, I have also received an internship opportunity at only my 3rd semester! That's huge! Because at other universities, it's harder to find a job due to the larger amount of students. Since the University is top 10 universities of Michigan, there acceptance rate is around 56-58%, so still over half but only by a little. I think that's why so many students are able to land internship opportunities.
