Michigan, at least the undergraduate section, is no better than any other universities in the state. The graduate schools are the reasons why the school is so acclaimed. I was an average student in high school and got almost a 4.0 majoring in history at Michigan. Considering all the talk about how great Michigan was, I expected to be challenged and be surrounded by bright people. Seriously, Michigan is no better than MSU, Oakland, or GVSU. The social life at Michigan is average and the campus is not very safe. I was mugged once during undergrad. The city of Ann Arbor is just not a safe place to reside. The university does not distinguish itself from the actual city and lacks identity.

If you are looking at graduate schools, I would highly recommend Michigan. For undergraduate work, the intelligence of students is low and the reputation of the school is very much overrated. Go elsewhere if you can.

responseI disagree; The graduate school is no better than the undergrad. But you are absolutely right about the undergrad school. Seems like there is a pretty high average rating for safety, but I never felt all that safe on campus at night either. When I was around, there were stories of gangs of high school students beating up the college students at night on campus.
