the exact cut offs of top ten, twenty and thirty percent for each class were online at some point. I can't find them right now. The cut offs for latin honors is online. Summa cum laude requires 4.00 or higher.

They only accept snail mail checks. You can put both deposits in one check though if you like.

Congrats on the WL, though! That's a heck of an accomplishment in itself, IMHO.

Thanks! My cycle has turned out so much better than I'd ever hoped for before starting this whole process. I have no complaints :)

Just do it, you could always forfeit the deposit if you got in. Even the letter after sending in the second deposit says "We understand you may change your mind, if so, please let us know..."

They're so nice. I think it was UVA who sent me an email saying "deposits are due soon, and once you deposit with us we expect you to withdraw everywhere." Of course, they sent that the day after I withdrew. :lol:

Yay for the new people. It seems like all the cool 0Ls on TLS will be at Mich.

I am open to any suggestions, help please. Also, I have a dog.

I really shouldn't be paying more for a one bedroom in A2 than I am in Osaka. Seriously.

Have you checked out Hidden Valley Club? They're dog/cat friendly, and you can get a 1bdrm with rent, unlimited water and unlimited gas (with a gas fireplace :mrgreen: ) for mid $600's/month. The property, clubhouse and complexes themselves aren't nearly as nice as a place like Woodbury, but the actual apartments (the only place out of those you'll actually be living in) I thought were very nearly identical. Both were dated, but fairly clean, budget apartments.


Hey I just checked it out but it says no dogs allowed. Thanks though for your help!


Woops (sorry), I take that back then. I could have sworn they had a sign out in the front that said they take both cats and dogs...


I thought I was right. I called them, and they said that both dogs and cats are allowed. I guess they never updated the website, but hopefully they will now...

Are any other Fall starts planning on moving out early? I should be there sometime the first week of July.

At graduation, top 10% is about a 3.7. It would be lower than that after 1L or 2L, since GPAs rise (more classes that are uncurved, like seminars).


Thanks for the information! :)

I'm right there with you Amelie! I'm going to ride it out, but I am still SO pumped about Mich. Plus Harvard would have to at least somewhat match Mich $$$ to make me go there.

Hey congrats to the Michigan Class of 2013. You will like it here, I guarantee.

If anyone (or a group) is looking for a discounted summer sublet (early Fall starters, or summer starters who still need a place) send me a PM. We have a few rooms available at my house as we go on to our summer internships.

Also, if anyone has questions about Ann Arbor or Michigan in general PM me questions and I'll do my best to answer.

Cheers.
