Pretty sure it's roughly the size of every other year. I guess we have around 90 summer starters?


90 minus 1, right? What ever happened there? Just a lot of huffing and puffing?

Wait, what are you asking about huffing and puffing?

We currently have 87.


Didn't a summer starter ditch Michigan for Chicago? Or am I misremembering?

I just don't understand the huffing and puffing phrase in this context. No one blew any houses down.

It sounded like some in the administration were upset when the student left. I was wondering what ended up happening, if anyone knows. Was there any substantive action taken?

I don't think there was anything to be done.

From what I understand, the admissions dept at the school the student went to was just as irritated as Mich. That being said, I think it was mostly just a little hassle, overall nbd. Certainly not as dramatic as you seem to think, compagnolo ;) Was pretty early in the semester, and I'm sure that sort of thing happens from time to time. Also seemed like that school might have been a better fit.


And I meant roughly 90, not 90 exactly.

The public class search says there are 86 enrolled in pottow's contracts :) but I have no clue if that is updated/accurate. I was mostly just curious after reading Dean Z's comments in this article: http://www.law.com/jsp/nlj/PubArticleNL ... slreturn=1

Are there grocery stores within walking distance of the school? I hear the grocery stores on campus can be a little pricey.

Which banks have ATMs on campus/walking distance to campus.

Thanks in advance guys!


I went to a place in Ypsi because they had a Groupon deal. I ended up with late-80's bangs. Bad news. When I need a simple cut, I pay $16 (no tips allowed) at the Aveda Institute, which is okay if you get the the first appointment of the day or you have time to kill. When I need something that someone could potentially screw up (i.e. highlights, drastic cut), I go to Salon Vox. If I want something semi-easy, but not easy enough for Aveda Institute, I go to Anna Belle Salon.


Thank you imjustjoking22 & bannanagram! That is exactly the kind of info I was looking for!!! My blonde hair & I are excited to meet y'all!!!

Then could you stir something up? I want something to read on ATL to entertain me before I get there.

Work is, quite literally, killing me right now. At least I'm out of here in two weeks!

lol. I'd say it's generally pretty drama-free around here. The thing that has riled us up the most is probably the shortened hours of the cafe in summer :p

Dean Z did mention waitlists and all that briefly- obviously when all the top schools are going to their waitlists more, then that trickles down to other schools. Mich is no exception, but she seemed plenty pleased with our waitlist options... It's just a weird time because of schools throwing out so much money to people they wouldn't have given it to in the past/at strange times in the cycle, so I'm sure that's frustrating for admissions to deal with.

I'd say most of us love each other. Having a blast. Though we've been playing assassins so everybody is a bit paranoid right now :p

How packed is the reading room, summer starters?

Does Ann Arbor feel pretty empty without the undergraduates?

Not packed at all. And not empty at all. There are plenty of people out and about at any given time.

The Reading Room is roasting on the triple digit days. I think the only diehards in there on those days can only study when they're in pain.

Just to be totally clear, I send my in-school deferement request form (for my undergrad loans) to the office of the registrar to complete, correct? I've been out of school for six months, so they will noy defer automatically.

You have to start school first, then yes drop them off (filled out, with obvious addresses for them to be sent to on the forms or attached in some way) at the registrar.

Okay so I should be prepared to pay my July and August payments? That sucks. But thanks for the info!

Yea, and possibly even September depending on how fast the turnaround is. But they can't say you're enrolled until, you know, you're enrolled.

You can generally just call your loan company and tell them you'd like to put your loans in temporary forbearance for a month or two. Just make sure you ask if there is a limit to how many times you can do this.

Okay, thanks. I thought I might have been essentially "enrolled" after sending the second deposit but that makes more sense. And Camp, my payments are pretty low so I doubt I'll put them in forbearance, but thanks!
