What is the difference between different campuses of the same university?
I live in Metro Detroit area. I find The University of Michigan a very good university. The main campus is Ann Arbor but, there are many other campuses like in Flint and Dearborn. When I apply for a job does it make a real difference from which campus I am from? If I make it to Michigan will I be in Ann Arbor or somewhere else? What is the true difference of these separate campuses?

Yes, employers (and graduate schools) will see that you didn't go to the University at Ann Arbor (which is the best one). However, which college you go to probably won't impact what job you get at any rate. I don't know how the admissions all work.
