I flew out of and back into DTW this week (to and from Ithaca, incidentally; had to go do my song-and-dance for the new grad students ;))  It's a pretty small, but easy-to-navigate airport.  I had my car there, tho, so I can't speak to taxis or shuttles.  Actually, I'd be happy to dash up there to pick up classmates as they roll into town, and I'd bet I'm not the only one willing to act as a shuttle.  The airport is surprisingly close to Ann Arbor, and we might as well get used to looking out for one another.  Let me know when you're showing up and I'll see what I can do.

aww thanks, but i dont wanna make you into a cab driver.. i actually just found some info on the umich.edu site.. i just realized i wont even be able to tell which building is the lawyers club in the quad   :-[

Did anyone fly into DTW here? Whats the cheapest way to get to the school, just taxi it up?

im a Russian immigrant (10 years in the country), my status definitely did not help a bit

Wow, even though you got accepted to some amazing schools there, I'm kind of surprised by the rejections you got.  Surely hoped something like being only 10 years in the country would've pushed you over the line. 

If you don't mind me asking, because I'm kind of counting on this whole thing being a plus for me in the long run.  Did you have to overcome any other things other than language, culture?  Because I'm writing about being from middle of nowhere in Ukraine, being the first to go to college, overcoming poverty, etc.  So, maybe it'll be something.

no i didnt have any of that so it might be something extra for you.. my dad has a PhD and i wrote about him in my essay... the only other thing that could have helped me is that i was a long island chess champion for a couple of years (analytical reasoning).. but aside from a stanford waitlist I dont think I got any positive responses that I was not expecting.. I really hope it works out better for you
