University of Michigan - Ann Arbor Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (62)
University of Michigan is an outstanding (although cutthroat) academic environment. While difficult (especially during the first semester), it has prepared me not only academically, but professionally and emotionally. It creates a challenging environment that will mold you to become a functional independent unit that has the ability to take on the "real" world.
Michigan is a big school with lots of opportunities. Professors are high caliber, but do not baby sit. You have to make an effort to establish relationships with professors. Due to the school's size, there is a lot of bureaucracy. Sometimes it can be hard to find your niche. The campus is beautiful and easy to navigate. Ann Arbor is a great town with lots of good bars, restaurants, and activities. Off campus housing is recommended after your first year.
The University of Michigan is a wonderful place to get your undergraduate degree. Now that I'm in the real world, I've only come to value it more. While academics are important and strong, Michigan has an incredible focus on getting involved in clubs and the community. Because of that, I was able to develop as a leader in a way that I wouldn't have been able to had I attended another university. Plus, there is no one who doesn't use the word "love" to describe their time at Michigan. That kind of passion towards an institution is unmatched by any other.
U of M is a fantastic school. It is a large University with a rich history. The faculty and facilities are great. The city of Ann Arbor is an amazing college town. Big time athletics is a major plus.
Michigan has arguably the best combination of top academic programs, extracurricular activities, and school pride. Ann Arbor is also a great college town. The biggest challenge is figuring out what you want to do with your life so you can take advantage of all the opportunities being a student there provides.
University of Michigan is one of the best education institutes in the world. The student life in Ann Arbor prepares you for a better life in the future. No wonder why Ann Arbor has been chosen as the most intellectual city in the US.
The UM SSW is one of the few schools of social work that has a few macro tracks in the country. The internships are great.
I cannot recommend U of M highly enough. I had an unmatched academic experience with top professors in their fields who were genuinely interested in their students' thoughts and encouraged me to think bigger and more deeply. I miss the campus all the time, and would encourage anyone looking for a rigorous but rewarding university to Go Blue, 100%. (Also, I got a job in my field soon after graduation ‰ÛÓ and my field is English, if that makes it more impressive. Besides an incredible experience, U of M looks great on a resume.)
U of M is a great school, but a lot of times professors are more concerned about their research than teaching. Depending on the program, it can be highly competitive. That works for a lot of people though!
Great school overall. Met a lot of people with different viewpoints and backgrounds, which was huge for my own personal development. That said, the campus really needs to desegregate.
