I miss college far too much. Kinda hated every year people telling me to enjoy my time at michigan cause it's all downhill after, not entirely true but having no responsibilities and drinking and partying as much as possible certainly has its perks. enjoy ur time at the best university in the world!
Congratulations to the incoming M Class of 2017!
True. Except in retrospect I realize that I kind of had more responsibility than I realized what with getting a degree and building lifelong relationships and all that.
Just so you know the group that put that together is a group current seniors and a couple of my friends. They have done a lot of awesome work if you want to check it out their website is http://filmicproductions.com/
but I got deferred.
Differed until the normal applications are done. Fuuuuuuuck. If only I were 6 foot 6 and 300lbs
same situation. this feeling sucks.
I'm 6ft7, and wait for it.....................180 pounds. lol
On behalf of the Class of '05, GET OFF OUR LAWN.
I still remember the date in the header of the letter of acceptance. I received it a few days after that (perhaps the advantage of living in neighboring Saline) - it was the fall of my senior year of high school. My immediate reaction, when I opened it standing at the foot of the driveway on a breezy 40-degree day, was to literally run a victory lap around the cul-de-sac, then tell my parents. My mother, a fellow alum, decided that this called for a celebratory dinner, so we went to Cottage Inn.
Congratulations to the newest Wolverines.
Got a little sad when I watched that. I was one of the deferred kids. Michigan has meant to me so much since the day I was born at Mott back in '95. Damn, I love this place.
I got deferred as well, and I have not been able to handle myself. I have the stats to get me in, however the competition of the applicant pool is ridiculous. If only they had interviews in the application process... then I'd be a shoe-in. I cannot imagine going anywhere else and would literally do anything for admittance. I love Ann Arbor and the University of Michigan SO much, but I also know that I cannot become a wal-mart wolverine. It is a very stressful time, please pray for me and hope the admissions representatives decide to let me in to the greatest university in the world.
and keep your eye on the prize. If you want it that badly, just keep working at it. Even if you don't get in now, if you've got the stats then you should be able to transfer in in a year or two. May not be the ideal thing for you, but it's not a bad outcome. Just keep working.
If you know what you want, barriers can be placed in your way, but they will not stop you. You will be a U of M grad if you choose it; if not undergrad then grad school. As the saying goes: The race goes not to the swift, but to those who keep running.
I got deferred and then in back in 09, its all going to be all right.
I did what any senior would do in that situation: I went upstairs to retrieve my instrument, and let The Victors (not "Hail to the Victors") rip joyously through the house.
I teared up and got goosebumps watching this video. I still live on campus, but its not the same as being a student anymore. GoBlue!
I still have my acceptance letter in my inbox. 10-22-09 t'was a great day.
I even got another acceptance letter when I transfered out of engineering into LS&A, but that one was a mistake. Doesn't matter, still kept it.
I just realized, I never actually read the email (from 5 years ago). Waited for the real thing in the mail. I wonder if it is still in my AOL mailbox, or if that email account even still exists...
I wish I tried harder in high school. BUT it would be waste, since I still don't know a career I want to go into.
I learned that GRCC was once considered a feeder school to UofM, that's why their colors are also maize and blue.
