Congrats! What other schools are you waiting on?


Thanks! This was my first decision. No word from GULC, NU (considering withdrawing from both), Penn, CLS, HLS.

No one got a status checker except that guy who already went to Mich as an undergrad.

Looking at transferapps, people were accepted through the 14th-16th. Not everyone got a call either.

I wouldn't look into it too much. The date automatically updates each day, regardless of whether they update your status.

Thanks for the info. That relieves the stress slightly I guess. I'd love to join you guys in Ann Arbor next year.

Of those already admitted at Mich ... did any of you not write the "Why Michigan" Statement?

I didn't. Only the last two paragraphs of my PS addressed why I wanted to go there. It is my understanding that this was very risky though. They seem to like Why Michigans.

I didn't write the why Michigan. I integrated some of that into my PS though

I wouldn't put too much weight into the PS getting you in. Aren't transfer admissions more of a numbers game than 1L admission? They just want people who will be able to get a good job as a transfer.

This too, in an interview Dean Z said: "I care much less about their wealth of experience and how interesting they are; rather, I just want to know whether they are going to excel if they come here. Consequently, it is much more about academics in the transfer process than it is in the 1L application process where we have a lot of other factors to consider. What I’m really looking at is how well you did during your first year of law school, and where you spent your 1L year. I want people I know will be a success at Michigan and the best indicator of how well someone will do once they get here is how well they did during their 1L year."

I didn't but my PS had a heavy focus on why I wanted Michigan. For those wondering about stats, T30 10%.

And thanks all!

For those who are just as obsessive as me, I was informed that Penn will be releasing at least some decisions tomorrow

The old me would be stressing about this and watching the clock, but after waiting over a month for 1L grades, my ability to be patient has gone through the roof. Though it would be nice to have my plans all settled out for next year.

Yeah, Penn is the last school I am waiting to hear back from, so once I get a decision one way or the other I can start moving plans, etc.

No, my letters of good standing aren't in for Penn and they're making decisions tomorrow. So I'm missing the first wave and probably my only shot at admissions. My current school won't answer my e-mails about trying to get .pdfs to send out either (not even to say, "we can't get you .pdf's").
