The University of Michigan is a great place to attend. The University provides mostly high-quality facilities (some are world-class), a wide variety of excellent resources, and intelligent faculty. There is a fantastic combination of school work, extracurricular work, social activity, sports, cultural opportunities, and delicious food. Above all, the people here seem to value intellectually focused conversations more than other institutions that I have visited. Ann Arbor is a vibrant, exciting place to live as well.

Inevitably, there are drawbacks. It seems that University is fairly restricting at times. There are a lot of requirements, which does not fit well for all students. Furthermore, it is helpful if one feels comfortable reaching out to people and resources around them (these skills, however, are developed in time). There are people willing to help if you reach out to them. Furthermore, it seems that the University makes it difficult to study abroad relative to other institutions, particularly if one is majoring in business. Lastly, the grading seems to be a poor reflection of one's ability to utilize and understand the class material. There are sometimes curves that are difficult to compete with. This, however, should not intimidate you, as these are common grading problems across many institutions.

Overall, the University of Michigan is a great place to go to college.
