One of the world's premiere academic institutions. Arguably the best public university in the nation with a total of 40,000 students, both undergraduate and graduate. Michigan has top-ranked programs in law, business, medicine, political science, and an array of other subjects. Virtually no area at Michigan is ranked below the top 20 in the country, allowing for it to rival the Ivy league as well as the other selective private institutions despite its high admission rate (47%).
Home to Michigan Stadium, colloquially termed "The Big House", the University of Michigan is also known for its legendary football, hockey, and formerly its basketball team (We all remember the Fab 5).
Michigan is one of the country's leaders in athletics, academics, and college life in general--located in beautiful Ann Arbor. You simply cannot go wrong with the University of Michigan.
