Good news for the Wolverines of U of M.

The U.S. News and World Report news site just published their annual U.S. News' Best Colleges rankings and the University of Michigan ranked as the 4th best public universities in the nation and the 27th best college in the country.

The report stated that the University of Michigan:

is a public institution that was founded in 1817. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of 29,821, its setting is city, and the campus size is 3,207 acres.

Its in-state tuition and fees are $15,262 (2018-19); out-of-state tuition and fees are $49,350 (2018-19).

Did you know that the University of Michigan's acceptance rate for the fall 2016 was 29%.  That means that approximately 1 out of every 4 students who applied was accepted.  I did not know their acceptance rate was that high.

Also U of M ranked as the #9 in Best Colleges for Veterans and the #19 in Best Undergraduate Teaching.

Congrats U of M now I hope you stop your slide into the liberal swamp and start teaching our young adults about critical thinking and being fair, thoughtful and intelligent when they attempt to understand the issues facing the United States today.  There are pro's and con's to all the solutions to the problems we face in the United States and plenty of track records on which solutions have worked better in the past.
