Is NMU good enough?

<p>My family and I visited Northern Michigan and I really loved the location on lake superior and the dorms, food, buildings, campus, etc. were super nice. But I'm a little worried that it isn't selective enough and I won't be surrounded by a good studying environment. I'm not a huge partier and I get decent grades 3. 87 gpa, 1240 Sat, many ec's. It sounds like all people do is drink there. But it is a great deal financially, plus free laptop. any thoughts?</p>

<p>personally, i never heard of it. if you are going to grad school/or think its a good fit you should go...</p>

<p>I don't know any NMU students, but the administrators I've met from NMU seem like very upstanding people.</p>

<p>NMU is like a lot of state schools, only more so--despite not seeming that selective, they DO get some good students. And given where it is located, it gets a hefty share of fine Michigan students who don't want to go all the way to Ann Arbor.</p>

<p>I'll bet you can find your niche among the other serious students. Not everyone drinks.</p>
