Remember bro your fight is never over until that last bell sounds. As long as you have options you have a dream. Things might not look so bright yet but everything happens for a reason. Just think of the personal growth you have done as a person from that time fresh out of college up until right now. Its priceless. And thats special and no one can take that from you. Dont ever give up. Remain encourage. There is something there for you.

WL at Michigan today. Didn't see that coming. I'm guessing it's YP, considering I've been accepted at Duke, Berkeley, & UVA. Oh well, with those employment numbers I'm not missing out on anything.

I applied later in the cycle, so this is the first school I've heard back from.


Congratulations!!! No matter what, the first acceptance is a huge deal!

Never give up, man. We're all in it for the long run. It's not over til IT'S OVER. Keep your chin up! Good things come to those who wait (and work their asses off before waiting).

That makes three of us today. First WL for me. I'm honestly shocked. Of the MVB group, Michigan was the one I wasn't worried about YP. Thought I had little to no shot at UVA and Berkeley and got both.

However, I also think it could have the number of AA acceptances already given out with UofM also. There's a fair number of users on this thread who have gotten UofM already and I know for a fact that UofM has stayed in the same range of AA matriculants for many years now. I also personally know that each year UofM accepts so many AA UofM undergrads also. Your looking at probably 20-30 AA acceptances already, with 12-15 maybe planning on attending.

https://www.law.umich.edu/aboutus/Docum ... -58-46.pdf

Why reach for applicants who are likely not going to attend when you have already admitted the numbers you need? For those of us that stick out the WL, I wouldn't be surprised if we don't stay on it too long after seat fees are due. I've gotten into better schools so I'm not sure if I'll stick it out yet.

For some reason, I've only now found this site! So bummed I missed out on speaking & sharing....but I'm here now! I also applied late. But I'm in at UGA, Vandy, Mercer(W), UTenn, WashU, IndianaU (Bloomington). I even applied to a few of the tops like Stanford, Harvard, UChi, UVA, and Columbia....so waiting to hear back & I haven't been dinged yet....so I'm hopeful!

But nice to meet you all! :lol:
