I think i'm just gonna go ahead and apply to Wayne as a transfer for Winter 2008. Hopefully I'll get in? Anyone know how the transfer system works?

i went to wayne for freshman year but transfered to a big ten school. If you want to stay in the area, there are a lot of metro detroit firms that employ wsu grads, however I knew I wanted to get out of the midwest so I went bigger.

Wayne State has got potential, IMO. I think they need to keep pushing their plan to make it more of a residential college and less of a commuter college.

I have 12 over 2.0 average credits that I can transfer from EMU, but the rest of my grades are W's and E's, because I wasn't going to school, or taking it seriously. Someone said WSU excepted them automatically because they had 12 credits. I'm wondering if I would probably get in as a transfer student, or if I should to just apply as an incoming freshman, and forget my measly 12 credits.

Question Considering job at Wayne State... request for advice!

Cato, thanks for your helpful insights! I am considering a job as a junior professor at Wayne State in a field affiliated with the health sciences. I was not aware about the controversy with the DMC and I was wondering if you could give us some more background about this?

For those of you from Detroit, I would also appreciate your thoughts on living in and around the city. I am from New York City and I am worried about moving to Detroit. I'm a city girl and love the diversity of New York, the great cultural/arts/music scenes, and use the subway/bus system all the time... I haven't driven a car in years. Do you think I would have a difficult time living in (or near) the Motor City?? I do not want to live in a suburban subdivision but I've heard terrible things about the lack of social services, crime, police corruption, and bad public schools in Detroit.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Default Anyone can get in to WSU (if you can pay)

Look, I'm not trying to knock the school but pretty much anyone can get into Wayne State (not kiddin' 2.4 or above from high school??!! some cash???) They have a sort of unpublished "open enrollment". If you have money: YOU CAN GO TO WSU!

Most of the graduate programs don't require the GRE or GMAT.

They are NO WHERE near U of M or even MSU.

I'm just being straight up real here.

Kate, you really should try to stay on topic here. A guy has questions about getting into WSU and you go and blast the school? Have you ever been to WSU? Oh, wait, I know that answer.

Daniel, best of luck! As a class of 92 grad, I can tell you that the campus and the offerings have really been bettered over the years since I left - and it was great when I was there!

As for name recognition, I have worked with people all over the US. I will agree that not every one knows about WSU - it's more likely that they don't know about WSU. Those that do know recognize the value of WSU and the quality of its grads. After your first job, most companies stop worrying about where you went to school and start looking at your drive, anyways.
