Major: Biology (This Major's Salary over time)
When I decided to go to the University of Michigan last year, I expected to less than thrilled. I was convinced that I belonged at NYU or Columbia, and was basically persuaded by my parents that Michigan was the right school for me.
However, I began to give the school a chance around Halloween. I got more involved, and stopped coming home as often. I have made some really amazing, talented friends and have met some very inspiring faculty members.

One of the things that I have to tell out of staters- DO NOT LISTEN TO YOUR FRIENDS/FAMILY/PEERS. People will ask you "Why Michigan???" CONSTANTLY, but you must make an educated decision about how to spend your (or your parent's) $40,000. Yes, it is a waste of money if you are planning on becoming an art history major or psychology major. No, it is not an Ivy League school. But the classes are super competitive (especially in the sciences) and very motivating. 9 out of 10 of your peers are pre-med, and 99.9% are pre-health, so they know how to work to get into a good grad school. But remember, classes are big and the school is bigger. Do not go here if you are expecting "personal attention" in a science class. Come on, who wants to learn Organic Chemistry with 5 other people in the class (thats too much personal attention? Thats the equivalent to a professor spoon-feeding information to you. Rely on your own ability to grasp information and don't forget to ask for help when you need it. If you have drive, you will get farther in life. Just remember, Go Blue!

questionWhat do you mean it's a waste of money for people who want to major in psychology?
This university is suppose to be one of the best for psychology. At least according to Princeton Review.
