I was literally JUST in the M Den lol.

Edit: when you're highkey decided but don't want admissions to know cause they haven't shown you the money yet lol

Haha sounds like they're pretty generous and should help you get some $$$! Wishing you the best of financial aid luck :)

Also, I don't care too much about outing myself, let's see if I met any of you: I was the (only) one with teal hair.


Teal hair isn't ringing any bells. I think I was the only black (light skinned) girl with reddish twists.... sound familiar?

Also Ann Arbor is Heaven and everyone should go here. 75 yesterday def helped


Wtf. All you people are here and I still have no idea who's who :lol:

I haven't stepped foot in Rick's yet. Was at Live yesterday though.

Edit: Bolded - agreed. And now it's back in the 40s :roll:


Haha, I felt like I was meeting so many people that I doubt I'll even remember anyone's names next time around. My roommate never showed back up last night and hadn't returned as of 11:30 this morning. I just assume he succeeded where I'd failed last evening, but who knows.

Definitely agree with this. I feel like if I come back in the fall I'll recognize faces but definitely won't remember names.

I had an interesting roommate experience too...


Were you stuck with the girl who brought her dad?

I don't recall teal hair, darn.

Yep! Since I'm a generic looking white guy, not sure how to describe myself :(

So we DID meet?!? Well, clearly you didn't make a bad impression or I would've remembered you like, "That asshole with the blue hair" :lol: so hi, again

I met many awesome people who may have been you all haha. Almost everyone was suuuuper nice and I met no assholes so congrats on being decent folks.

Also I am racially ambiguous and kinda brown (I'm mixed race Chinese and Native American but look Pacific Islander or Mexican) if that helps in any way.

And I just want to point out that all of us freely adding descriptions of ourselves on this thread is very Michigan hahaha

As the resident skeptic ITT, I'll take a jab at answering this.

I'll start with the cons first.
1) The weather - which is like... what everyone says the con is, basically lol.
2) The lack of black students - both in the LS AND in UG (I'm going to assume it's because AA isn't a thing here) and what comes with it.
3) A group of white male (probably) undergrads were drunk on the balcony of their apartment pouring beer down on the sidewalk and almost got it on me (and apparently got it on a couple of the people who were with me) and then started yelling things like "COME FIGHT ME THEN" when they were like "Wtf is wrong with you" last night when we were walking from the car to the bar

Pros:
Literally everything else. But one thing I will say is.. definitely the people are what make this place so great.
Some specifics..
1) Even though there are very few black students, they are PRESENT and TIGHT and FRIENDLY AF. I felt like I fit right in. Like.. jokes, teasing each other, etc. etc. AND they wouldn't let me pay for things like.. ever lol.
2) All -- well, most -- of the potential classmates I met (especially the black students) were people I felt I would be able to get along with, hang out with, etc.
3) The professors are not only successful/smart, they're engaged. I really like the way they interact with students.
4) The alumni network is REAL lol. An alumni who is a partner at a big firm came to speak about private sector jobs and after, I went up to him and was like "You do something I think I might be interested in, would I be able to get your email?" and he was basically like, "Absolutely, you're here, that makes you family. I'd love to help," and gave me his card.
5) It's been practically impossible NOT to talk to current students; I feel like when they see you, they want to know more about you and tell you about the school and whatever (especially when they're drunk lol) and they all seem to have #NoRegrets about coming to Michigan.
Something unrelated to the people that is a pro: I feel like there's just something in the air or the water or something around here that makes you start to love this place.

All-in-all: I'd say they've officially turned a skeptic into a believer. lol

Lol, I mean, none of us are saying anything awful about Michigan. If anything, I'm just building up to when I decide I want to be on an ASW panel next year so I can tell people how much I love this stupidly cold but amazing place.

very surprised how nice this weekend was. Definitely can see myself here. If anyone is on the fence or hesitant about the Midwest (this was my first time), It's definitely way better than I expected.

I am 99% sure I talked to you, chandhi, and maybe complimented you on your dye job. Brini I saw you from afar. My only defining feature is I wore a maroon cardigan for most of the weekend, and I was one of the ~10 black admitted students haha.
