Next year, I will be a freshman at the University of Michigan, and I'm happy overall to be going there. I know that I'll be able to get a great education at U of M as well as meet many new people while I'm there. Those are two things about which I'm very excited.
However, I'm also slightly worried about going there. I'm worried about the size and the layout of the campus, but those are things to which I can adjust (not really vital problems). The main problem that I have with this university is that I've heard many times that many students as well as the administration are "stuck up" and treat their visitors (people and college wise) poorly. This has always been a major turn off for me about U of M, and I hate it when people (as well as universities) act like they're better than everybody else (I sincerely hope that I do not become that way while I'm there). I'm just wondering how much "outsiders" (for lack of a better word) have noticed this in Michigan as well as how other universities (perhaps more so in the Big Ten) perceive the school attitude wise. I don't know. It's not always just the academics that make a school a great one but also how the school treats its guests and opponents. Hopefully, I'll be able to deal with the snooty part of the school if it turnes out to be really apparent.
