I decided to be a Michigan Wolverine next year because it was definitely the most amazing program of those I visited. The curriculum seems great (love the pass-fail and flextime quizzes), students were among the most friendly, happy, and laid-back I met anywhere, and the clinical training seems like it's going to prepare us really well. Good luck to everyone else!
