| Jun 21 2012 | I may not have been the brightest in regards to grades and exam scores, but I was diverse in my extra curricular activities. I played many varsity sports, volunteer work and also a job. Michigan wants to see what you can contribute, not just academically, but socially.
I was accepted in 2006 and I graduated December 2010. All you need is good test scores above average grades (between 3.2-4.0) and Really good essay responses.
