Hey everyone,

I'm going to be a transfer this fall at Mich so I'm not in your class year, but it'll still be my first year at Mich (super excited)! Since I got in so late, I just applied to LC today and got a double: G-21. Also, called and got football tickets right away. 8) Maybe I'll see some of you around LC!

I'm receiving both need and merit based money from Michigan; if you have any questions, let me know.

Hmm, I wonder if they'll move me into a single or let me keep my double if it doesn't fill up (was also told there were 2 or 3 spots left when I sent my lease in).

Dinged at MAP. GPA: 3.7 and LSAT: 169. Came by email.


























That felt way too familiar.

No. Despite the stories your classmates will tell about making lifelong, lasting friendships and loving the opportunity to get to know other people, as people, at MAP, this doesn't matter because about two weeks into your second semester everyone is going to give up that bullshit and get out the long knives. After another 13 weeks of tight, fake smiles, and lackluster bar nights tarted up as mad bohemian adventures on Facebook, you'll already be sorted into your caste according to the 1L summer work you get. By the time 2L OCI rolls around, about a year after MAP, you and all those kindred spirits will be history. You'll be ready to gut each other if it means a shot at one of the dwindling number of summer associate slots at a firm that will actually commit to postgraduate employment. During 2L, you'll either avoid making awkward conversations with the people who didn't make it or try to repair your credentials with bullshit resume lines like Campbell Moot Court. After that, 3L is just a glassy eyed wasteland where you try to forget some of the relationships you had, you avoid 1Ls, and you either bitch constantly with your few friends about how "nobody" can get a job or you just shut up, go through the motions, and look ahead to the day you can stop bleeding money and begin gainful employment. By the end of 3L, there's a greater than 50% chance that you'll be down to filling out surveys trying to warn 1Ls to leave now and posting about your penis on audoadmit. So, no, MAP isn't the thing you need to worry about.

I was also dinged for MAP, 3.71/171.

What the hell is MAP anyways? Does the program target minorities? All I heard was team building stuff during the day, get wasted at bars every night.

I assume I got dinged because I gave a slightly smug answer to a slightly ridiculous question that was asked on the application.

There were few minorities there last year. Was like a mock class, some tips, and lots of socializing.

Also, I just posted this in the facebook group as well, but even though I'm not doing MAP, I'll already be around AA at that point (moving up on the 5th or 6th of August), so if anyone wants to do the socializing part sans the daytime teambuilding, I'll be around. Although, come to think of it, depending on how much drinking is done, the 'falling over and trusting that the other person will catch you thing' might happen regardless :P


It's not that kind of teambuilding...lol. Also, you'll be able to go to a lot of the MAP events. e.g. they will usually go to bars after the first dinner, etc. Just have someone keep you up to date.

Is anyone thinking about bringing golf clubs? I'm trying to decide if it's worth the hassle of shipping.

Yes. And it's also you in three years, most likely. Three years ago, I was here posting brightly about MAP and shitting rainbows too.

Oh, and definitely bring your golf clubs. They'll give you something to look at when you're trapped in your tiny student apartment during the seven-month Michigan winter. Maybe you can combine them with a blanket and make a fort.
