I had a job, took all AP classes, 4Jan 24 2012Philosophy
I had a job, took all AP classes, 4 years of French, and had an abundant number of extra-curricular activities both in school and outside of school. UofM doesn't like slackers, so you should show them that you're definitely active.

Three main elements will help your admission chances:Jan 14 2012Business - Management and Administration
Three main elements will help your admission chances:

1) Strong essays: Be honest, thoughtful, and creative.

2) Extra-curricular involvement: Pursue your passions! Be active and make a difference in your community. Do what you want to do, not what others want you to do. Explain on your application what you wanted to do, why you wanted to do it, and the actions you took to get there.

3) Teacher recommendations: Develop meaningful relationships with teachers. This will help you when you need to ask that teacher for a recommendation.

Hope that helps and please feel free to reach out to me with questions or concerns! Please email me at Go Blue!

I may not have been the brightest in regardsDec 08 2011Anthropology
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.
