I wasn't accepted into MSU. Got accepted into UM Dearborn and Wayne State. Currently going to um Dearborn until I raise my gpa enough to find myself in East Lansing.
Honestly it was disheartening to have to end up at UM Dearborn. It's always been a dream of mine to graduate from MSU. I truly cried when I found out I wasn't accepted, and I have no shame in admitting that.
Chose MSU because it had the best ranked food science program and they gave me some money (enough that it was worth it to go out of state).
This is exactly my story. Two years at UM-D, got my grades up, graduated from MSU in 2011. Got rejected from MSU twice (in high school and after 1st year of college) and got in on my 3rd (and final) attempt. If i got in I'm sure you can!
I was gonna go all Tate Forcier too, but didn't feel the need to brag..
There is romance in all of us
I simply liked MSU more.
This is a Pallas’s cat. Their round pupils give them an odd human quality. They disturb me...deeply.
Shouldn't these transfer bitches be banned? What is this half and half bullshit?
It didn't make sense for me to go out of state because I got an in state scholarship. It was actually really close for me to go to UofM over MSU (I was going into engineering, now I'm journalism), but in the end it was the atmosphere and my green blood. My grandfather went here, and hopefully my grandkids will as well

I worked for 1.5yrs in the Food Science dept cutting up baby bottle nipples and studying rancidity levels in pork chops, sausage and bacon..
Between there and the (old) meats lab, Anthony Hall.. some of the best years of my life, I tell ya ;)
Michigan Tech (never actually considered going there)
I'll be honest and say that I went to MSU because I didn't get into Michigan (4.0/28 ACT/white male). Ten years later I'm thrilled that it worked out this way.
Grew up bleeding green but was a complete tool and thought being a college athlete would justify going somewhere else. I've regretted that decision every single day since.

I got wait-listed at Michigan and then accepted after Eastern, Illinois, and MSU took me. I graduated HS with a 3.6, started college as a sophomore because of AP credit, got a 31 on the ACT (didn't study) and a 1430 on the SAT with a perfect score on the math section. I chose MSU because 1) I grew up right outside Ann Arbor and I wanted to get a little farther away and 2) I was kind of an arrogant ass and if UM needed more than 10 minutes to decide if I was good enough with the resume I had, they weren't worth my time.
And yes I know I come off as bragging. This seems to be the thread for it.
My mom went to Michigan, my dad went to MSU. I humored my mom and applied to Michigan. Notre Dame is sweet, but it's not MSU. Plus, I wouldn't want to attend a school that associates itself with Charlie Weis
Only applied to MSU and Notre Dame. Chose MSU because they gave me more scholarship money and had more of a connection to it than ND.
Yep. Didn't even apply to one single other school.
I wish you had been accepted to STF U.
Bowling Green was the safety-school, and being from Toledo, I had a bunch of friends who went to BGSU. I knew I was going to MSU since I was a little kid, but my parents made me to apply to at least one other school.
Applied to only MSU
Accepted spring semester
It's family tradition and I don't know anything but green and white

This. Unfortunately, family problems forced a transfer closer to home and my degree says WMU.
Probably my biggest regret so far in life is that I didn't finish in E.L.
Not really a lot of point in going back now anyway. Maybe in a few years when/if I want to get a Masters...

I wanted to play golf in college but GVSU would only promise me a tryout. After visiting Albion I felt like going to any of the DIII schools would more or less be a continuation of high school. I decided I wanted a different experience and major college athletics. With in state tuition, MSU was a no brainer. Could not be happier with my decision.
I toured ND and while on campus my father reiterated that he would not pay a dime of tuition if I went there.

I'm busting my ass to raise my GPA. A 3.0 and a 28 on my act out of HS wasn't good enough and neither was a 3.1 at UM Dearborn to transfer in this Spring. I refuse to give up though, I plan on being the first Spartan in my family so it's not exactly a popular choice
MSU, U of M and Wayne State. Accepted to all, I visited my cousin who was already at MSU and was sold by the beautiful campus. Plus, I started as a music performance major and the teacher at the time on my horn, Leonard Falcone, was one of the best in the world.
MSU, ASU, safety schools. Easy choice for me. As good as ASU's journalism program is (started as journo major), so is MSU's and I wanted to stay around home for undergrad. No regrets.
