Degree: Fitness Trainer
Graduation Year: 2010

The pros: a world-class education at one of the most sought-after universities of the world; the highly-ranked Kinesiology program that matches knowledgeable, invested professors to equally interested and enthusiastic students; and an interdisciplinary, comprehensive graduate program in which one can take classes in several other graduate fields, such as social work, psychology, or business, while integrating knowledge gained into the field of Kinesiology. Cons: Not many, perhaps more networking opportunities for new Kinesiology graduate school grads who want to connect with older, experienced Kines grads. Most alumni networking opportunities are geared for Kines undergrads who want to network with Kines alum.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2017

It's dental school so one should expect it to be difficult. It's very challenging, yet rewarding. It requires a lot of time to complete all the needed materials, but the professors are your biggest cheerleaders and all your peers are extremely helpful.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2017

The classes are challenging, and the work load is heavy, but that is to be expected at any dental school. The professors are fair and are experts in their field. They are always willing to help us understand the material better and truly want us to succeed.

Degree: Dentistry
Graduation Year: 2015

It's a good school with a good reputation but there is heavy research emphasis (mostly because research brings in a lot of money) and there is little career guidance and assistance through the licensing process. They leave you on your own to fend for yourself for that.

The education at UM Dental School is great. A lot of the faculty here at the UM are leading researchers in their field or have had many years of experience in their field. Living off campus makes transportation more difficult, but there is a great bus system that is pretty reliable. I have enjoyed my time at UM.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2016

MSW is the best programme because its gives you the knowledge and expertise for work in diverse settings. Despite its comprehensiveness and applicability, the programme is least appreciated in many developing countries, which create the need for more graduates in the same programme.

Degree: Other Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros The program at the University of Michigan is very collaborative. Students like working together to learn and solve problems. We have a diverse range of research topics. Cons Most of the faculty are concerned more with the research and don't put as much effort into the classes. Some classes could be taught beter.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2014

Coming from a smaller undergraduate, making the transition to a larger institution has had its toll on me. Making friends in this larger pond is harder, especially when students are in very distinct academic groups (i.e. MS vs PhD students). One thing the math department can improve on is the inclusion of the MS students, myself being one, since it often is portrayed that MS students are invisible if they exist at all. The faculty are very friendly, however, and are more than helpful outside of the classroom. They encourage asking questions which is healthy for any student.
