Looking for universities in Michigan?
So I am in the process of looking for a university and I would like some help. I really would like to stay in Michigan because I know my family won't help me with anything more than IS tuition.
Senior Year: 4 AP's. I exhausted all the Honors.
EC's: None. I grew up in a household of alcoholics and drug addicts. They didn't even let me start going outside until I was like 13. There's no reasoning with them.
First Generation College Student.
SAT- 1060. I have really awful test anxiety. I was able to manage it a lot better last year because my tests were shorter and usually writing based, but I am still not past it. I can't get accommodations due to my alcoholic parents. I have had several teachers notice the anxiety over the years. I am going to take the September ACT and maybe another in November. It's so frustrating that I can score like a 27 while I am relaxed, but the moment you turn that timer on I get a 22 or 23. Done venting.
So can anyone tell me about any universities in Michigan? Like, what is the overall atmosphere of the school like, how are the academics, and stuff like that.
I really want to branch out and leave home so I won't apply to any schools that are close to me (Oakland, Wayne State, and UM-Dearborn). I am trying to go on tours, but it's hard to make it to them since I have to convince my grandparents to take me on them (they don't want to).
-No privates unless the cost of them can be pushed down to like $20,000-$30,000.
-The school has to have no religious affiliation
-I prefer urban/suburban areas.
-I love living in Michigan so I would like to stay here.
-Size is not important to me.
I've been to Grand Valley and I surprisingly did not like it. I thought EMU was a lot nicer.
I was just going to apply to every public in MI, but that seems like a waste of time. I want to build a list of schools I could see myself at. I've got MSU and EMU on that list right now.
