Wondering this same thing. Not that I'll be invited to apply for a Darrow, but I am interested in how much (is any) financial aid I will be receiving.

If you haven't seen UMich in the winter, I assure you it is nothing to hide - quite pretty with snow. Maybe an oversight on their part? By the way, I don't understand why everyone worries so much about UMich winters, winter in Chicago is much worse.


I worry because I have lived in florida all my life. 60 degrees is cold here.

If I had to guess, they just decided to film the whole thing at once.

I am sure this is right, however I am also sure that they specifically avoided that time being winter. :)

I wrote two optional essays and applied ED, and I haven't heard yet either. I broke down and checked the admitted students site this morning, but couldn't get in. I think we have another week or so to wait.

I turned them down UG but that would change things would it?

This piqued my interest so I went and grabbed my viewbook...no winter pictures there either and I'm sure they didn't take all those pictures at once haha

Farther down there's another one of the law school ^^ Great set, these definitely got me more excited about Michigan (and the winter ahead, as well)

As a Michigander, I should tell you that the winters aren't always that awesome. The mornings after fresh snow, however, are ridiculously beautiful.

Gorgeous! I'd move to Ann Arbor just to stare at that building all day in pathetic longing. :) Not really. But congrats to those who got in!

God. So true. Sure the pictures look pretty now, but you'll find it a whole lot less charming in the middle of February when you haven't seen the sun in 4 months and the arctic wind tunnel by U-Towers is burning your face off. Then you'll curse the day you chose this goddless midwestern siberia over balmy Charlottesville.

Sledding in the Arb is fun though.

Go Blue.

This may be in the wrong thread but I figured I would post it here and see what responses I get. Has anyone that has been admitted began looking at off-campus housing? I am not interested in the Lawyer's Club because it requires a meal plan and I am too obsessed with my food choices to handle that, but I am potentially interested in Northwood (though it's on the North campus :?) and other truly off-campus housing. I would be willing to live with either gender/sex, however you wish me to correctly state that, and I would prefer finding a house so as to have a garage (read fitness obsessed and want personal gym space). I'm not committed to Michigan yet but it is certainly my first choice at this point and barring an acceptance to Stanford I think I will be heading to Ann Arbor in the fall. You can either reply to this post or PM me, I am just trying to get on housing early.

Thanks for the tip, that clears that up. So off-campus it is.

So I went complete right after the October LSAT scores came out (I took the Oct LSAT) and have yet to hear anything. Should I be concerned? I am RD. (Sorry I just found this thread.)
