I will have my application complete aside from my ranking by next week. I think this will hurt me because of my school's low median and regular 4.0 scale. A part of me wants to hold out on submitting the App until i can send the complete app with the ranking, but i think that'll hurt me as well because the earlier the better... well see. i'll have ranking right around or before july 2nd.
Send your app in now, and just e-mail them when you get class rank. I did that, and it helped that I expedited the process. I got a phone acceptance the day after I e-mailed Michigan my class rank, which was the last thing to complete my app there.
Thanks a lot for the advice man. Michigan is my top choice. I was just worried because a 3.75 is like top 10 at most places but its well within top 5% here. Did you just send a regular email with your class rank or did you try to make it official in some way? I will try to have my complete app (aside from rank) submitted to Michigan next week then just send them an email like you did when i get my rank. do you remember around when you got your acceptance? Last thing did you writhe the "why Michigan" essay?
I know this question was a couple days old, but in case you didn't get an answer to it, I called the Admissions Office when mine came in, and I send them a pdf of the class rank release, as well as a link to where the class rank was posted online.
I did write the "Why Michigan?" essay.
And I didn't get class rank released until June 27, and was still accepted (around July 10 or so), so I wouldn't worry about the timeline too much.
