Despite the fact that the University of Michigan is a large school that pays quite a bit more attention to its graduate students rather than undergrads, it was still worth it going there. First, the classes are all challenging and the professors expect you to do your work and do not put up with excuses. Michigan may not be Ivy League level, but it is pretty damn close. Second, Ann Arbor is a great college town with something to do for everybody, from high culture to meat market bars. I like Ann Arbor even more than I like the university. Third, even if you are not the most social person you will make friends. You can find people to party with or you can find people to talk about philosophy and current issues with in a coffee shop.

It's true until you get into your advanced major courses you'll be closer to graduate students than you will with the faculty. But most of the faculty will make an effort to talk to you if you visit them during their office hours.

The only bad thing about Michigan is that there are too many rich snobby types driving around BMWs and that can get a little nauseating. Being from a small town in Michigan I felt I was looked down upon by some. But like I said, you'll find people who are enough like you there and there are plenty of open-minded types who don't care what your parents do for a living. Michigan is a overall a great school for learning about the world, both in classes and around Ann Arbor itself.
