I’m starting a little street photography project focusing (ha ha) on what else but that wonderful little city of Ann Arbor.

The two rivals, Michigan and State (though not so great as Michigan vs. – dare I type it? – Ohio). Two basically different campuses: one in a fairly urban college town, the other on a spreading green campus with not too much in its immediate vicinity. Ann Arbor and East Lansing, of course. U of M is arguably my first choice for colleges overall (price, proximity to home, and – of course – location). But before my visits, a few quick stats:

University of Michigan: one of the Big Ten (GO BLUE!!), world-renowned for its research, extraordinarily strong academic programs (in pretty much everything, especially Engineering), cultural diversity, and located smack-dab in Ann Arbor, one of the best (and best-known) college towns in America. Highly competitive. Stats:

Cost: (in-state) $21,000 (out-of-state) $43,000
Rank: Nat. U #27
Selectivity: most selective (29,800 applied, 12,550 accepted)
avg. ACT: 27 – 31
UG body:

Because I’m from near the Ann Arbor area, I’m already quite familiar with the town/city and can say with confidence that Ann Arbor is definitely a fantastic place to be or live.

The Spartan. (Ted and I are under the umbrella.)

Michigan State University: Green and white Spartans of evil. (Yes, I already have an allegiance to Michigan and would probably remain a staunch supporter even if I somehow ended up at State.) I will say this, though: even though it was raining, warm and humid when I visited (truly disgusting weather), the campus (in East Lansing) had a kind of secluded feeling to it. And while my mom and I had a bit of a hard time figuring out how to get around (it’s not exactly what you’d call a “grid” campus like UM or Pitt)

Cost: (in-state) $17,000 (out-of-state) $33,000
Rank: Nat. U #71
Selectivity: more selective (25,500 applied, 17,990 accepted; rolling admission)
avg. ACT: 23 – 27
UG body:

Ted and me at the table. Very exciting stuff, guys.

I went to Ann Arbor to visit my brother and do some other stuff at the end of March and never got around to posting any pictures… didn’t take that many, but still…

Sarongs outside Orchid Lane

Sweet car.

Not sure what this was about…

Jacket – F21, jeans – JCP, boots – Steve Madden (DSW), scarf – Orchid Lane, sunglasses – vint, rings – vint.

Wow. This is kind of a dumb post…. *shrug* It’s raining and I’m tired. Count of Monte Cristo time! night
