Major: Mechanical Engineering (This Major's Salary over time)
I wasn't particularly thrilled when I was attending the University, due to the difficulty of my curriculum. It seemed that people were studying all day and night, check out the engineering library(Duderstadt), it's open 24 hours a day 7 days a week, and people sleep, eat in there. Extra-curriculars are plentiful, there's a club and team for anything and everything you could want. As a minority student(Asian American) and Out of state student, I felt very comfortable here, there aren't as many racial cliques here as many other elite Universities. My only problem was that, I was pushing myself too hard with the classes to thoroughly enjoy a lot of these amazing extra-curricular activities, it seemed like everybody else were smarter than me. I was involved in high level research in my freshman year and sophomore year through the UROP program(one of the best in the country)

With that said, Michigan offers so many opportunities for you to succeed, the resources and programs available to undergrduate students are second to none. Job placement is also as good as any ivy league University, all the major consulting and investment banks recruit here and heavily. If you are an engineering major you are guaranteed a job by graduation.

I've also heard that many people are concerned about class sizes at Michigan, it's really a myth, with the exception of the first year intro classes, which are big anywhere you go, most classes are around 20-30 people. And even the intro classes have sub-sections for discussions that are 10-20 people. Check out the LSA profile, they tell you the class sizes. Furthermore, the freshman seminar classes are all small.

I have been in the professional consulting world for 2 years now, and my Michigan degree has opened so many doors for me, everywhere I go I am respected because of my degree, I didn't realize how prestigious Michigan is until I graduated. I'm about to pursue an MBA, and Michigan undergrads are #11 on the all time feeder list for Harvard Business school. Go Blue!
