While I only spent a semester at UM-Flint before I went back to Ann Arbor, I realized that Flint is a great a school close to home. While it may not have the reputation that comes with the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor, the professors are very intelligent and quite interested in helping students. It was nice to spend some time at a smaller school where the professors knew you by name and were interested in your academic success. If you're looking to cut your costs and attend a school close to home, the UM-Flint is a great choice. The only problem with UM Flint may be that the classes are not offered as frequently as they may be at a larger university, and many of the science classes that were only one semester in Ann Arbor took two semesters in Flint. With these problems aside it is still a nice school with excellent professors (at least that was my experience in the science department).
