I didn't apply to Michigan as a transfer but I know a friend from transfer T40 to Michigan and he heard back MAD fast about his acceptance

Accepted last week. Top 10% TT, STEM undergrad. Their admissions people have been really quick/helpful.

If you don't mind, when did you submit the app? When did it go complete?

Submitted around June 5. Didn't receive a status ticker so I'm not sure when it went complete but my letter of good standing probably showed up 2-3 days before being admitted.

Hey all,

The personal statement prompt for Michigan seems pretty tailored. Did you all write two pages on "why Michigan" specifically, or did you use your PS from other apps, and tailor it to "why Michigan?"

Thanks!

I wrote a specific one. Not that much different from my PS to other schools though.

Thank you both! I'm going generic with a short paragraph on Michigan for anyone else looking for an answer to this.

Anyone else not receive credentials to check status online? So far, I have been communicating with the admissions office by email.

Congratulations, transfers! I'm a long time lurker who used this account when I was contemplating my own transfer to Michigan last year and sought some advice. I decided to go through with the transfer, so I'm a rising 3L transfer at Michigan now. If anyone has any questions, feel free to PM.

Received application complete email last Thursday, and still haven't heard anything from them.
I consider myself to have similar stats to some of the admits (T20, top 15%).
A little worried, since from the previous posts, people tend to get decision back in 2-3 business days after being complete.
If I don't get anything by the end of this week, am I screwed? :(

Is Michigan where you want to be? Like you, I was complete for some time and concerned. I further explained my interest through a letter of continued interest and was admitted the day after I submitted the letter. Best of luck to you on your cycle.

Hi, thanks a lot for the advice. Was this Michigan? Would you mind sharing what you wrote in the letter since I have no idea how to make it sound non-unpleasant to them. We can do it over PM if you don't feel like doing it over here. Thanks again!
