I went and it was awesome! They have a new dean whose credentials are really impressive. They're opening new clinics and expanding on the ones they have, which I appreciate. My impression was that they really try to set you up to succeed. They have a dean fellowship of students who took classes and got an A. Those students have a weekly Q&A on the particular class they did well in for students currently enrolled in that class. It apparently really helps the students out.
The UM campus is really nice. There are 4 different libraries on campus. The law college needs a little updating but they are in the works to start revamping it this year.
All and all, I would be proud to have a UM degree, but I am still holding out for a few of my pending applications or a scholarship from UM because that 61,000 sticker is looking like a bad idea in this economy.
Oh, scholarship-wise they’ve given out all their money already. The only way to get a scholarship at this point to UM is to get the throwback money from admitted students withdrawing.
