The Michigan Difference: A First Year's Life-Changing Experience at UM

<p>Hello everyone, I'm a freshman at the UMich. As application season comes to a close at all you anxious seniors will be awaiting decision letters, I'd like to share my experience thus far at one of America's finest and most diverse institutions of higher learning.</p>

<p>At dawn I wake up to the song of twittering birds and the mooing cows. Morning is like eating honey-covered ice cream, as I skip off to chemistry lecture, stopping every so often to smell the sweet scent of roses and daffodils, a diversity of flowers. Class is an hour of blissful euphoria where everyone gets an A+, unless if you're caught taping a piece of paper that says "kick me" onto the professor's backside, because that doesn't count as diversity. In that case you only get an A. At midday I go with my buddies to share a picnic on the Diag, and after stuffing ourselves full with chocolate milk and homemade sandwiches our mothers made for us and other diverse foods, we fall on our backs like grinning drunken sailors on shore leave, soaking up the sun in balmy 70 degree weather with a slight chance of lemonade rain. Where else would you have such a diverse climate? When the sun starts to set we head off to our dorms, where everybody has a 20x20 ft room and private path all to him/herself. Since there's no such thing as homework or exams, instead of studying everyone gets to play Starcraft all night or have Super Smash Bros tournaments. And since a UM degree is so prestigious, every major company, medical school, law firm, and state legislature in the country will be begging us at graduation to be their next CEO, CMO, governor, or Director of Diversity Affairs. so we'll have some pretty tough choices to make. OK, we did give the guys from the Microsoft a few Culinary Arts graduates, but that was only because they offered a couple of jet planes as a sign-on bonus, and that counts as diversity. That's the Michigan Difference.</p>

<p>I count myself as one of the luckiest individuals on Earth to have been accepted a UMich, diversity. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't have considered any other place!</p>

<p>So don't let a full ride diversity to Harvard or acceptance into HPME tempt you, choose Michigan diversity.</p>

<p>What a wonderful experience you are having. I know it’s like that everyday in Ann Arbor. Thanks so much for letting inquisitive prospective students know the real truth about The University of Michigan.</p>

<p>I have a feeling you’re mocking the diversity of Michigan. </p>

<p>And what are you smoking today?
A+? 70 degrees weather? 20 x 20 ft? LOL</p>

<p>As much as I love michigan, let’s not make up bs that beautifies our university.</p>

<p>Soy Sauce? are you mad because you are not a minortiy anymore? haha</p>

<p>I don’t get the point of this post anyway. Maybe that’s how it is in LSA, but not the CoE, haha</p>

<p>Now, tell us how you really feel</p>

<p>It’s a shame you’re not funny, but it had potential</p>

<p>^^^^If he/she is really a freshman from OOS or international and doesn’t like the weather now, which I base on the obvious sarcastic remarks made in the above statment, just wait a few more weeks. The balmy 40’s that you experienced today are going to feel like the tropics when January comes around. This obvious knock on the university wasn’t even funny from the get go KenLewis. I don’t know if this person is a real student or just a ■■■■■, but in either case nobody ever said this school was Utopia.</p>

<p>It could have been funny. But it wasn’t.</p>
