I attend Michigan, and I don't really think it's fun...but I think that might depend on two major things: where you're from and what you like to do. If you're one of those people who thinks getting drunk is the way to go, then you'll be fine at Michigan or anywhere else. Otherwise, I think the most entertainment to be found is obviously somewhere near or in a city. Sometimes, I wish I would have chosen Penn, because I don't think we "bust our asses" at Michigan...although I know many people would disagree with me...still, I have a lot of free time, and I spend much of it bored because 1) other people are always working and complaining about working, and 2) I don't think there's much of anything fun around here in walking distance and I don't have a car or anything). I'm not even from a city--I'm from somewhere where I'm used to being bored, but I'm sick of being bored, especially knowing that I *will* eventually be busting my ass when I get a job. I want to have fun for three years, and, unfortunately, I--and some other people--find Michigan pretty boring. The slack we get academically, in my opinion, lends itself to plenty of opportunities to have a good time...there's just not much here providing a good time.
whoa having time outside of school is a bad thing? and nothing at michigan to do?
they have a great football team, you could go to a game
or enjoy the undergrads, if all the law students are busy studying I suggest you look for one or preferably several fit undergrads to spend time quality with
also "busting your ass" is overrated, why bust your ass if you can do well and enjoy yourself, I suggest you think about the drinking comment and maybe start
I'd also like to point out that just anywhere is not a good place for someone who enjoys drinking and the social side of life, the scenery is extremely important when drinking...
