What are the differences of each school?

<p>I'm an out of towner, and I don't know much about UMich as I wish I did. I was just wondering if anyone could help explain to me the differences of each undergraduate college or school, and what makes each one unique?</p>

<p>Also, for the second essay on the supplement, when they say "including preferred admission and dual degree programs", do they mean EA or RD, and what we plan to major in, or something different?</p>

<p>Any insight will be appreciated. Thank you in advance!</p>

<p>There are also other school the Nursing and Pharmacy School(apply to after first two years).</p>

<p>The School of Information is the informatics major that used to be in LSA. Informatics is like a light-weight version of Computer Science, but includes courses they don’t teach in EECS like graphic design in Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator and web design in php, Ruby, Javascript, Ajax, etc. then management courses. Starting this semester they’re trying to make entry semi-competitive, you’ll have apply during your sophomore year to enter the School of Information</p>

<p>Don’t forget the School of Public Policy. Pretty self-explanatory.</p>

<p>[The</a> University of Michigan | Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy](<a href=“http://www.fordschool.umich.edu/]The”>http://www.fordschool.umich.edu/)</p>

<p>“For instance, COE may contain the shy but smart kids. LSA may contain the lazy but popular kids. Ross may have the motivated people.”</p>

<p>Yeah… No. Just stop.</p>

<p>You can expect the general student body at Michigan to be smart and motivated, with a “work hard, play hard” attitude.</p>
