Hey all, I should probably wait till I get the snail mail, but I just can't wait... :S

I looked at the "Mail & Money" tab of the ASW today and I got a scholly update. It says "15000" for the year of 2012... dean's scholarship.

Since they specified the year of 2012, does this mean I on;y get 15k for the first year, or is it 15k per year over 3 years?

Thanks :)

Awesome! I didn't get an email though, just saw it on the ASW. Think we'll be getting snail mail about it soon.

Thanks for the quick responses!

I got ASW access last Monday. The acceptance package came in the mail this past Monday. And today I saw the scholarship notice under the "Mail & Money" button on ASW.

you did well...although I noticed you were kinda winging it. You stumbled on the last question, but recovered very quickly. Overall, I was impressed.


First of all, multi-tasking ≠ winging it. I knew the case, the rule, and the analysis. She was spending an inordinate amount of time summarizing for you guys so I had some free time... Winging it is when you haven't prepared/can't remember and have to quickly search through the text as she asks questions. It involves flipping pages, frantic reading, and awkward silences. While you probably saw me flip pages...it was because I have notes/highlighting in the book. The point is not to memorize every detail of the case.



Secondly, what you guys saw was a fair representation of a semi-socratic professors. However, that is not normally how she teaches. She isn't normally socratic...she asks for volunteers a lot of the time, tells someone if their proposition is wrong, moves on to others when people get tripped up, etc.

How she started by summarizing some of the case herself was also weird/unusual. Normally, someone volunteers (or rarely she selects) and that person would summarize all the facts she said and provide most of the details she solicited from me by specific question. Then she would have went into the common law history and stuff she did in the beginning while summarizing. I've never really seen a professor summarize like that before. The variation is in how long they let you discuss details/rules/analysis before they interrupt. (I've seen 2-3 sentences before interruption...or 5-10+ min of non-stop explanation, without interruption or question, where the student basically covers everything we talked about (plus what we didn't get to).

I'm guessing she did it this way so she could demonstrate how a socratic lecture would look... question/answer/question/answer/explanation/question/etc. The questions she asked were all softballs though...easy questions. Rarely would a professor have to ask question after question to elicit such basic facts. I'm sure every person in the class could have answered them without hesitation. The only variation would have been how long they discussed each answer. I favor short to-the-point answers. If they want more, they can ask for it. I don't opine or expand unless asked to.

RE stumbling: If you're referring to the question I think you are that wasn't stumbling. She asked a pretty broad question that could have been answered in different ways. I could have given the name of the covenant they discussed, stated the rule, skipped right to their analysis, etc. I stated the rule...she then interrupted to give you guys the name of the covenant...we all had that and wouldn't normally waste a lot, if any, time on the name of it. She then guided where she wanted the discussion to go.

A professor interrupting, re-phrasing a question, or asking a follow-up question is not stumbling. People fret over this a lot in the beginning...but it's normal. Professors move the discussion how/where they want. IMO, stumbling happens a few times a semester...when someone just can't grasp the question, can't locate the material, etc. Eventually the professor has to answer on their own or call on another student to take over.

wolverine2014: Out of curiosity, where did you feel I was "stumbling"?

Let me know if anyone has any questions...


I just noticed that you paused a few moments after she asked you a question. As I mentioned though, you recovered quickly and did a fine job.

Just an FYI for when you begin...pausing to think is not only fine but preferred. Form your thoughts into a cohesive answer. It's not a speed contest. It's a guided discussion.


It's also not exactly a science. I think you're waaaay over-defending/explaining yourself. You had to page through your stuff to answer a question or two. ...'k...

I don't get the mystery people feel when it comes to stuff like the "Socratic" method. So a professor leads class by asking one student for specifics over and over for awhile. Why this is seen as innovative, terrifying or even all that interesting, I just don't know.

Alright children, quit fighting. Wolverine2014, you should know Blowhard isn't stupid. Blowhard, you should know better than to pick on the admitted students.

Does anyone know who I should contact to discuss other scholarships I've received? (I know, Michigan doesn't have a reputation for matching, but if I don't try I can't go)

The admissions office handles the actual awarding of scholarships.

Just found out over the weekend that I got into Michigan!

Maybe a dumb question, but, does anyone know of any Michigan accepted students events (official or otherwise) in the NYC area? I want to learn more about Mich, but doubt I can make it to ASW.

Congrats to all.

So do I just send it to the general admissions email address? Thanks!

call the office, but don't expect them to budge on the scholarship. and if they don't you should take the money at UVA.
