Edit. Holy formatting. It was spaced correctly on my iPad when I submitted it. I was never going to do this but I just talked to my Nephew again and he is all in for Michigan. It doesn't hurt I have had a couple cocktails to finally ask a question. A little background. My family and entire extended family are Michigan fans, always have been and continue to be today. We meet each other every other year for a home game as we are spread all over the country. It hasn't been easy getting tickets for 23 people to a decent game, although my wife surprised me with tickets for UTL II. That was one of the best days of my life...except for finding a cab to the hotel after the game. My nephew is a great kid...I know I am biased but he is. He is going in to his Senior year and going to Michigan is his first choice of schools. He is also applying to Notre Dame (to hell with them), Georgia Tech, Purdue, Indiana (new Engineering school not really interested he says), University of Washington, Wisconsin and a few others. He took his ACT earlier this year for the first time and convinced his mom (my sister) not to study as he wanted to see what he would score with no prep...he scored a 33. He had 2 tutoring sessions with most of the focus on how to take the test versus studying for it and he scored a 35. He is taking it one more time and is going to study to try to get a 36. He's a smart kid. He is also a member of the Naional Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, lettered in XC 3 years and 2 years in LAX. He did attend a U of M XC camp last year that he really loved. His gpa is a 4.2 with all advanced placement classes without really having to apply himself yet. Now to the question. What else can/should he do to try to get in to U of M as an out of state student? Sorry for the the long post, the entire family is rooting for him to get in to Michigan! Go Blue!
