I went to Michigan because of its reputation. Unfortunately, being from out of state, I didn't know anyone who had actually gone there. The campus is pretty, although thanks to the amount of never ending maintenance, it usually looks like a construction site. The school spirit is great, and the parties aren't too bad, but this school has a high percentage of nerds and truth be told, isn't the best looking student body in the country. However, my biggest single gripe is that this place is a high priced diploma mill. The professors don't teach, they simply assign lots of reading. I guess they are under too much pressure to publish to actually become involved with the students. I don't know if the TAs teach or not, for most of mine don't speak English. There are better choices out there.
