We never directly compared admissions days but it seems like there was a lot of variety about when we each were admitted. In other words, schollys came after admissions not with your acceptance package.
There was no merit aid application for things like Dean's Scholarships and Darrow invites. Every applicant is considered upon acceptance. TBF, everyone who applied before a certain date heard back in a batch so its hard to tell how scholly decisions will proceed from this point. It's possible that Michigan will release scholly decisions on a rolling basis now that they have started or they might do another big batch. Either way, you shouldn't be worried yet.
Thanks Kershka and dglenn. So then it sounds like nobody admitted after December's magic scholarship day got heard about scholarships yet? (The scant data on LSN seems to indicate that too). Whether we hear as a batch or one at a time, it sounds like, as you say, I probably shouldn't worry yet and they still might offer something. Thanks.
This was not the case for me. I was accepted at the beginning of November (11/6) and just heard about my Dean's Scholarship - under the "correspondence" section of the website, it says that my award letter was mailed on 1/9, and the information went up under "your personal award info" on 1/11.
I'll also confirm that the number listed on the website is per year, not a total amount. (Eg, if the site says $100, that comes to $100 for each of the 3 years, or $300 total, with $50 applied each semester).
