Graduation Year: 2011

I loved the atmosphere of the school. One big campus similar to a small city. However, the price to go here is enormous. I only stayed in the dorms my first year, which is required. I was a transfer student and came in my Junior year. I only re-took Chemistry. But, I ended up having $70,000 in debt. My chemistry class had a 27% pass percentage. The smaller classes were great because you felt important and had one-on-one time. But, the largerror classes had over 900 students and you didn't see the teacher but in lecture. Wish I would've picked a different degree but at the time all my professors were telling us it would be a breeze to get a job in the field because there is a boom of positions available. I started applying for job 6 months before I graduated and all they wanted was professionals with 10+ years of experience or a master's/doctorate. It's been 3 years and the only jobs I can find pay $7-9/hr.

It's a good school, but it depends on what you're looking for concerning how professors teach and what major you would like to finish. It's also very expensive.

I chose Michigan State to be my undergraduate college because it has the big school, big opportunities atmosphere.

Though I wasn't sure what major I wanted to choose yet, the advisors helped me choose classes that were pre-requisites and some electives to see what I liked. This campus is beautiful, convenient enough for a large university, and the academics are amazingly helpful.

The professors want you to succeed (really) and have a ton of time or assistants to help. Also available are a multitude of resources at every students fingertips, from the engagement centers to writing center or the library. Michigan State has something to offer for everyone, including international students.
