The university sounded nice and friendly at first. But once, you are in, you realize the arrogant, competitive, rude, and self-absorbed nature of almost everyone. It's not just student and faculty either, the whole city of Ann Arbor is rude. People maybe be nice to your face, but they have about as much caring in their hearts as Helen Keller had sight in her eyes.

The professors set you up to fail. Deliberatly making the exams above your knowledge, and above what they-or the books have taught you. And good luck getting any help from the profs/gsi s—teach yourself. I will most likely transfer because of this crappy "teaching" style. I feel as if the atmosphere is thick with an "I'm better than you" or "you suck" attitude.

questionIs it not possible that those tests want you to think critically? It seems to me from what you've written that you're used to a "memorization and regurgitation" style. I don't mean to make assumptions or to be hostile, so please correct me if I'm wrong. I just wanted a bit of clarification.
responseIf you're looking for high school again, no college will be satisfying. The point is to get you to learn on your own. Welcome to college. Also, there will always be arrogant people anywhere you go. I feel as if you were just misled as to what to expect once you got to college. Sorry if I'm wrong, but you didn't really support anything you said with any logical evidence.
comment"above your knowledge". Undergraduate programs are notorious for imparting "information." It is through your own study, introspection, examination, and assessment that you develop knowledge.
responseOhio has got some pretty snobby, stuck-up, and rude people to begin with.
