Yes, U of M is a good school (provided you're a graduate student). The research I've seen has been outstanding, even intimidating. It's definitely the top if the field for research.

However, I think you end up paying too high a high price for the prestige of U of M. The size of the school means you're just a number. The beaurocracy can be absolutely stifling and patently unfair. Professors are focused so much on their research and too busy to teach classes (mcuh less talk to you). Instead you have to teach yourself a lot of the time. Finally, the workload is insane. I am physically, emotionally and mentally exhausted from all the all-nighters and 75 hour work weeks.
