"The friendliness of the students and how laid back everyone was. one faculty interviewer specifically pointed out that faculty focus on helping students because they're paid through a salary, not through grants that they need to earn. U Mich apparently introduced "plasticizing" of body parts (the method that creates the figures for Body Works.)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Stay for a football game. The campus pretty much comes to life. I missed the one against Penn State! Also, there's a difference between Medical Science Building I and Medical Science Research Building I (the first one is where the admissions office is)." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Ann Arbor is a beautiful college town. 7:00 AM in October is still before sunrise, something I wasn't used to coming from Cali. There are about 40 interviewees per day, so you really get a chance to meet prospective classmates. There are two groups of 20. The first group has interviews first from 8:30-10 and then the rest of the day is for learning about student resources (computer labs, lounges, library services) and financial aid session. The second group has their interviews after the workshops from 10:30-12. Afterwards we break for lunch and then separate into smaller groups to tour the school as well as the main hospital.
