School of Nursing?[edit]

While I know it's not the case, judging from this article and all UofM & nursing school related lists & articles there is no UofM School of Nursing (alternately that it is too unimportant to warrant coverage along w/the university's other schools and colleges). Please rectify this omission. Thanks in advance. Drdpw (talk) 12:44, 17 October 2014 (UTC)

2015 Admissions Stats[edit]

For the class of 2019 stats at UMichigan, the stats seem suspect. The sudden increase of the bottom 25% of SAT scores from the previous year's suggests that the data might be either contrived or from ADMITTED STUDENTS not ENROLLED STUDENTS which significantly lower the averages.

I don't know where you're going with this list, but the alum section here is already too long. If you're going to add all these names they belong at List of University of Michigan alumni or List of University of Michigan sporting alumni. Kendall-K1 (talk) 12:00, 28 August 2016 (UTC)
I'm thinking that this list is better located at WP:Articles for creation, where more people will see the suggestions and perhaps write appropriate articles. I'm not sure that this Talk page is the right place to place a dynamic and changing list such as this one. JohnInDC (talk) 23:49, 30 August 2016 (UTC)
