I submitted my application on June 23rd and, a few days later, I received a general e-mail confirming that my initial application materials were received. Since that e-mail I had not heard from the admissions office until this morning. At this point I do not have a official class ranking, however, I would estimate that it is between 2-4%. Hope that helps!

So i'm not really into the whole excessive speculation thing; however, my status date on the status checker has changed everyday for the last week, from July 6 - July 10 (on Saturday?) but still says complete. I first went complete around June 18. Has this happened to anybody else?

Michigan status checker changes every day except Sunday, iirc.

So it doesn't necessarily mean that your file has been checked, reviewed, or added to? The date just changes everyday regardless? That seems strange to me...

Yeah I have a friend who also has applied to M, his date changes by the day as well. I think it is a computer generated thing and is virtually meaningless unfortunately.

For the regular app cycle it changed every day except Sunday...including holidays like Christmas. It's definitely computer generated.

Edit: My guess would be that the admissions office works off a database and at midnight (or whatever) the server scrapes that database for updates and pushes it the status checker.

Do you think we could work something out where we trade acceptances? I'll trade you my GULC for your boalt!

Hahaha I was actually referring to Michigan as my dream school. I'd only take Mich and probably Northwestern over Berkeley at this point. If you have an acceptance from either..then yea, lets trade!

Thanks, man! It was very unexpected. Phone call today. Probably attending. Still trying to gather info on how transfers might fare at OCI, though. Sticker shock is setting in already.

Is there any consensus on how many more acceptances are going to be given out? I only wen't complete yesterday, but am worried I missed my chance. top 10-15% from a t20....

To be entirely honest Michigan has been so sporadic with acceptances and denials (at least as noted on this board) it is hard to determine how many more are being accepted. It seems like they are sending acceptances out as they review applications (not in waves like other schools), so I would not worry about turning it in late. I think your chances are just as good as anyone if you have a competitive application compared to the rest who are awaiting a response.

In. Can't really believe it! I had already started to look at housing for Berkeley and everything. This certainly complicates it all. (And wtf is up with the ding from GULC at this point? hahahaha)

Stats? And did your status checker go "Decision" at all before you heard?

Thanks!

Dude nice! A much deserved congrats! At least you can relax a little at this point knowing you are in at one of your top two choices (and Mich's deadline is not until July 30). Well done sir.

Thanks man, definitely appreciate it. Strongly leaning towards Michigan right now. Can't believe how nice they were on the phone (and throughout the whole process). Im guessing I'll be seein you in the fall. I need to start figuring out housing, damnit.

Also: stats: Chicago T2, top 5% (3.0 UG, 160 LSAT), some softs

Never got a status checker. Go figure.

Yeah I am on the hunt for an apartment too, probably nothing worse than looking for a place to live in a completely new town lol.
