    Although it is expensive to attend as an out-of-state student, it is one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest, Big Ten universities.

    A lot of the entry level stuff is mandatory repetition of things you should have learned in high school- which they are assuming you didn't because a brain-dead slug could graduate from most American high schools. After that, many majors are, as I've explained, woefully neglected. They like to hire people who are pros in their field, but it doesn't matter one jot if those people know how to teach. And 90% of them don't. You can get a good education here if you stay extra years, wasting tons of cash, but if you want to get a simple bachelor's degree in four years to save your wallet- just go to a community college.

    The U is extremely affordable for a Big10 university. Along with that it offers lots of scholarships, especially if you are looking to study abroad.

    The U of M isnt anything special. I go to the Carlson school of management and though it is overpriced, the resources are excellent and teachers are helpful.
