Major: Biology (This Major's Salary over time)
I have started reading these reviews as my high school son approaches applying to college. I attended U of M as a premedical student coming from a very small all girls high school. I majored in biology and worked very hard to do well. I went on to graduate from at the top of my medical school class and have a successful career in academic medicine. I can truly say now in hind site as an adult, that my academic experience was VERY strong. I learned how to write, think critically, and communicate. Medical school was EASY compared to undergraduate at U of M. While I was a biolgy major, I have fond memories of the history, english, and greek literature classes I took. Coming from a small all girls high school, I loved the diverse and politically liberal feel of the campus. I thought it was great. Yes, its big, but the world is big too, and work environment and adult life aren't always, warm, intimate, and fuzzy. I wouldn't sent a kid here unless they were relatively bright, at least a little bit assertive, and open minded. The student body is diverse, which I view as a plus. As an adult, I look back on the experience and think it contributed positively toward my outlook on life today. I promise, its not all about the football.
