Has anyone submitted a reconsideration form before really interacting with anyone at the school? I'm trying to figure out if I should do it before I visit next week or after. After would mean I'm running really close to other offers expiring.

Anyone know when orientation is? I think it's Wednesday the 16th-18th. The apartment I'm interested in has a move in date on August 18. I'll have to pay extra if I want to move in early on the 11th. :x

Edit: Never mind found the info. Orientation is Aug 22-25 and classes start Aug 30.

Even if there had been a conflict, attending all of orientation isn't mandatory/half of it will probably be as useful as the ASD was

Where can I find info on applying for a traveling stipend? Looking into a last-minute trip to Austin to check out the law school before my deadline.

If I'm not mistaken, the last two days you have LRW classes.

Acceptance letter says orientation is mandatory, if you're only attending parts of it you might want to be clear on which parts are and aren't required.

My mistake. I don't carry my acceptance letter on me.
I'm guessing it'd be okay in circumstances such as the above (which is no longer the case so this entire thing is hypothetical) to miss a day and e-mail or call to let them know in advance. There's a difference between 1 day vs missing all 3..........

Did anybody else get the deposit reminder email?

"I know how busy our lives can get, so I wanted to send you a friendly reminder that most of you have an April 7 enrollment deposit deadline, which is tomorrow. Please check your admit letter if you were recently admitted; chances are you have a different deadline.

Considering tomorrow is Friday, please make sure you take care of paying your deposit no later than Sunday evening. This is a secret (I am not supposed to tell you)!"


Does this mean we don't actually have to submit seat deposits until the end of the weekend?

That's what I'm thinking, but I'm still sending in my deposit tomorrow.

Current students what did you tell your landlord or realty company about your financial situation for your apartment application?

I have good credit (700s), but of course I'm going to have no salary. Do the realty companies know we are getting loans to pay for the apartment? I like this place and don't want to waste $200 to apply and get rejected because I'm going to write $0 for salary.

Edit: this is for one near the law school. I spoke to lease office last week when I was there so they should know my situation.

Your loans are your income. That's what my undergrad landlord told me when I was submitting my apartment application. I listed my total loan amount and things worked out fine.

Not going to lie I'm thinking about the full ride to Maurer everyday lol. I'm still hesitant to like say I'm 100% committed to Texas even though I feel like I have to go. At certain points of the day I'll be like screw it I'm going to Maurer with low debt and settle for a lower salary job, but then later I tell myself I can't just say no to UT. The job prospects and opportunities are much better at UT, but the debt to attend is frightening.

I saw your FB post! I'm glad you like Michigan and hope you have great time there!

Thanks so much. Seriously in love with UMich but want to visit Bloomington from time to time haha.

I honestly think you'll be long-term OK picking either option. Tons of people would kill to have these choices. You're in a great place. I'll keep an eye out for your UT announcement FB post (or not) 8)

Sorry if this has been asked before, but does submitting the first deposit bind you to UT?

Deposited! It's still hard for me to believe this is happening. This time last year when people asked if I was going to try to go to UT for law school I would tell them that I wanted to but there was no way I was gonna get in.
