I take calls – lots of calls – from prospective students (and their parents) interested in knowing how we evaluate the admissions applications we receive at the University of Michigan. And we receive a lot – nearly 50,000.
I don’t offer long-winded answers or flowery prose. I don’t need to. Because facts are facts: Michigan gets applications from many more academically qualified students than we have space to admit, so we look for students who also have the drive and motivation to challenge themselves and take advantage of the many opportunities we have to offer here.
