Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2014

As the #1 social work program in the nation, the University of Michigan, School of Social Work has MANY opportunities to tailor your interests to. The staff, atmosphere, and quality of education is wonderful. My financial aid package we disappointing, as I am in poverty, but there are many scholarships the school offers. I love the selection of concentrations across the social work spectrum: from global social work, gerontology, and interpersonal practice, and more.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

U of M has a great medical program. From the moment I was first interviewed I felt so welcomed. The faculty are always very receptive and willing to talk to students in order to find better ways to teach and learn. The staff is very supportive and very often will go out of their ways to help you out. Although the class size (~170) can be a little of a problem during the first and second year for those who like smaller groups, it is also important to remember that during the 3rd and 4th year things seems a little more quiet as rotations are done in groups of 7 to 15 students. I feel the quality of education at U of M is outstanding!

Pros of my school are the diversity, that academic standards, and the faculty involvement. Cons are that there are a few too many required courses that we have to take.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

Pros: - Very large department with several "superstars" in various areas of research. - Plenty of great talks/speaker series offered through the department (e.g., APA Division 45) - Graduate students are assigned office space. - UMICH is one of the few psychology programs to offer summer funding. Cons: - The different areas of psychology are a bit isolated from one another. - Rent in Ann Arbor is a bit expensive for a grad student stipend. I would recommend living closer to Ypsilanti or in Pittsfield Township.
