So I was just accepted off the waitlist into Michigan, and was planning to attend Raikes in the fall. I previously had thought that I would instantly want to go to Michigan if I got in(which I had assumed was not happening), but now that I actually have the option I'm hesitant. Mainly interested in information on a few things:
-How many Michigan CE students get internships every summer? Are they heavily recruited as a whole, or are they just picked over for the top students?
-Does Michigan offer the opportunity for real world experience? At the Raikes School for your junior and senior years you work with real companies to develop products that they need, which would be a valuable experience, and I'm not sure if Michigan has anything similar.
Mainly I guess I'm worried about being a part of such a large pool of students. I know at Raikes that it would probably not be very difficult to get internships or a job, as there are only 35-40 students per class, and companies like Hudl and Microsoft heavily recruit from there. However at Michigan I am worried that even if I was a good student, I could get lost in the crowd and end up not much better off than I would've been at Raikes, minus the money my parents would have to spend for me to attend Michigan.
