The alumni network and the job resources with Umich are outstanding. The university has a great name and is highly regarded by many big companies. There also many networking and recruiting opportunities through the university either through organizations or the career center. I feel confident that I will be able to find a good job right after graduation.

Umich has decent class sizes given that its a public university. Even with large lecture halls, discussion sections help make the class seem smaller and allows for more personal interaction with graduate student instructors. Professors are also generally very available and are willing to take out time for students. Professors also push their students greatly but also provide the resources to still do well.
