I by-far had the worst experience of my life at the University of Michigan. I am out of state from NY, and all I can say is unless you join a sorority good luck making any friends. People from the state HATE newyorkers. My roommate and most of the girls were orange, ugly, wanna-be barbies. The guys are alright and the girls are ugly. All people want to do at this school is get messed up and fuck. I found nothing redeeming about my experience in Michigan except making one friend. The school is extremely racist. I was shocked by the amount of racism I experienced here. Everyone is an arrogant, snob. Coming from a wealthy area, i expected going to a large state school would bring me in contact with some down to earth people, but I have realized not many are too down to earth at U of M.

The academics were horrible. I had 2 proffessors who spoke no english. I had one gsi make a horrendous remark about men being better then women.

University of Michgian students think they are sitting on top of the world. They are an example of how college has turned into a four year resort rather than a place to learn. All people wanted to do here is party. Everyone is the same.

Good Luck to whoever is going here. Anyone who likes this school is a conformist, or enjoys being alone all the time. Bc getting out asap was the best decision ive ever made.

responseWow, you seem like such an asshole. And just addressing your second last comment (I'm not even going to put in the effort to reply to your other ones), I like UM. And I am definitely NOT a conformist. And I definitely do NOT enjoy being alone all the time. God, with that attitude, no wonder you had such a bad time at this school- you would at any school.
comment"if you dont' join a sorority good luck making any friends". considering that 90% of people are not in a sorority, do they have no friends? Although U of M is a wealthier area than I was used to, I found plenty of down-to-earth people. Some of my friends are from NY, and they seem pretty happy here. Maybe you're not making any friends because of your negative attitude. I don't like making friends with people who do nothing but complain about nothing either.
