For those attending UDM in the fall, you were proably not told that on-campus interviewing that takes place in the fall for 2ls and 3ls (some 1ls, but very few will be hired) are limited to the top 10-25% of the class.
The curve is set at 2.5-2.7 in many classes, so there are very few As. Many people do much worse than they expected to do. Being at the bottom or even the middle of the class at UDM is not a good place to be;
Shorecrest Inn is also a good place. It is 35$ but requires about a 5-10 minute walk (MI winters suck).
Well, PM me if you have any questions and I'll give you my email address. I would be happy to tell you about the classes you are taking, professors, study aids, anything you need. Later. EMSR
Hi "whiteyemsr", i pm'd u as well for your email address, don't know if you're going to check that first or this so it'll be a double post. I have a few questions with what you posted. I am potentially going to be a 1L this coming fall. I'll list them below to make it easier to read.
1) i know you said OCI are for the top 10-15% of the class... this worries me, what is the typical GPA that's between the top 10-15%? Is it hard to get in that range?
2) I'm a little confused as what the curve means. I know you said it's on a 2.5 - 2.7 scale. Does that mean the average GPA of the class is between a 2.5 - 2.7 ? So lets say I have a 3.0, how would that come into play?
3) Is it that bad to walk from Shorecrest Inn in the winter? In terms of safety? Do you know where it is exactly? I might want to check it out to see if it's worth saving the $50 each month.
4) I'm taking a criminal law class this summer with Felder and we have a final coming up on 7/18. Any tips on how I can ace it? I'm part of the summer 2006 SSP class.
Thanks so much! I'll PM u with my email address.
Just wondering...what is the draw of UDM??
I've spent my entire life in the Detroit suburbs and, as you can tell, am gettin the hell out of here. The city of Detroit is pathetic and will be for years as the moronic residents re-elected one of the most corrupt mayors in the nation. But hey, he's ghetto-fabulous, so he should be the mayor of Detroit right? Anyways, the economy here is already tanking and this is only the very, very beginning of hard times.
There are soooo many better options in the area...Wayne, MSU, Toledo, hell, I might even throw in Cooley for the simple fact that it is not in Detroit. MSU is a school on the rise (the recent ranking drop was the result of 40 graduating seniors who failed to report their employment/bar status). They will crack the top 100 in the next few years. MSU's name alone carries more weight in the midwest. Toledo is a top 100 school and offers in-state tuition to Michigan residents. If you insist on staying in Detroit, Wayne is a great school with a great reputation in the area.
I'm sorry if this comes across as a flame, I really am just curious as to what people see in UDM.
Does anyone happen to know anything about parking at the school? I probably don't even want to know how much it will cost! I'm still waiting to hear back from my aunts stepdaughter about decent suburbs to live in, and I will pass along the info. I also work at a police department, and one of our new officers is from Detroit, so I can hopefully get advice from him as well.
I won't be able to make it on May 18th...I'm in Florida and I can't off work. Please share how everything went for those that do go!
