The University of Michigan School of Social work is Number 1 in the country for many reasons. They have many opportunities for research and working with research professors, however, I have noticed that sometimes field placement choices can at times be sparse depending on the program that you are in. The students in the school are very engaged and knowledgeable of their fields and are extremely passionate about social justice. The school's diversity is an issue as there is in U-M undergrad with being overwhelmingly white students, and I find that the way the school handles financial aid is much less supportive than the Undergraduate program most likely due to the fact of having less funding. The majority of professors and staff are very friendly and actively want to support students in the program, but I have found at times communication with staff about issues in classes or with professors and financial aid support can be difficult. The University of Michigan School of Social Work in large part is an excellent place to earn your Master's degree, and I have heard that career placement post graduation is extremely helpful!

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2012

Unlike the majority of my peers, I enrolled at the University of Michigans School of Public Health immediately after graduating from undergrad. As a result, I was immature and failed to truly appreciate the amazing education I received at Michigan. I constantly complained about our work assignments and did not comprehend why we were doing certain activities. Fast forward several years after working in the field and everything Michigan did was spot-on! All the work we did at the school directly build my skillset for working in public health, shaping me into an extremely competent professional. At work, I am the only graduate from Michigan and the difference in education really shows. My colleagues are not dumb but their public health education is not as comprehensive as mine, and they struggle to make connections between theory, logic, and reality. From the very first class to the last assignment, Michigan goes above and beyond to make sure you are equipped with everything you need to succeed! If youre looking for a comprehensive and well-rounded approach to education, choose Michigan. Their priority is making sure you understand what youre doing in order to succeed, and really deemphasize memorization of facts just to pass a class. Such great quality of education will definitely let you shine once you graduate and start your career!

The University of Michigan has one of the nation's top ranked pharmaceutics programs. The faculty is excellent and world renowned and the school does a great job making opportunities available to its alumni. I would highly recommend it to anyone considering a career in pharmaceutical research.

Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

The University of Michigan has been a tremendous learning experience during my first year of graduate school at the Ross School of Business. The campus itself is located in Ann Arbor. Because it is one of the largest universities in Michigan, the school has a large campus divided by the different schools depending on your selected major. Although I go to class at one area of the university, there are a lot of resources and study areas in other parts of campus. I definitely see this as a strength of the university because it is highly ranked in a variety of disciplines from business, medicine, engineering, and law. The campus culture is extremely diverse as most students attend the University of Michigan from other states. This brings a diverse and cultural experience to the community. For the graduate business school I am currently attending, the program has an amazing hands-on learning curriculum. In each of the classes, there are live case homework assignments that allow you to apply the concepts in class to an assignment. There are also many extracurricular activities that will allow your to expand your skills. This is a great program if you are someone who enjoys hands-on learning experiences. Additionally, the student body is passionate and diverse. I have been able to learn from my peers and their experiences since everyone comes from extremely diverse backgrounds. The challenge with the school would just be figuring out where you want to spend your time. There is honestly so many activities that there isn't enough time to participate in all the wonderful opportunities. Overall, my first year has been a fantastic experience.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015

Extremely strong in all areas, a "public ivy." Steep out of state tuition, but located in one of the best small cities in America. Affords a strong alumni network as well.
