The pros of the program are the faculty, staff, and overall feeling of the program. The cons are the prices and transportation.

My program goes above and beyond at being the number one school of social work in the nation. Social Justice is of highest value and its students are prepared to be ambassadors for change in the world.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

UMMS is a great place to learn medicine. The faculty and staff are generally medical student friendly. It is wonderful to be associated with a well known university. This allows medical students the opportunity to take advantage of state-of-the-art facilities and be a part of great innovation. Ann Arbor is a typical college-town with great love for their University sports teams.

The University of Michigan Medical School is a well known program. It is well regarded everywhere. The school makes it easy to explore other interests outside of school, or take care of things beyond medical school. There is not a ton of individual mentorship built directly into the curriculum, so you need to be self-driven in that respect. Everyone here is very friendly, and Ann Arbor is a great place to live.

CHallenging to get into and heavy, rigorous work load. Grading could be more critical.

I believe the MAcc program at UM is the best in the world. The teachers are well-versed and you have the option to take classes right along with MBA students. Outside of the classroom, their are many recruiting opportunities which make it practically impossible to graduate without a full-time offer. There are also numerous social events and since the program is relatively small and select, you really have the opportunity to get to know everyone on a personal level and establish a solid network for the future. Although the tuition is pretty high, Ross offers many more scholarships than any other school I've looked at. For those not familiar with Ann Arbor, it is not only a beautiful place to live, but also diverse and fun. You will never run short of things to do!
