Chin up. We've got semi-similar numbers, and I have a feeling we'll both get in. Plus, didn't you already get into a T14? I remember a giant shoe getting an admit somewhere. :lol:

I got in already with very similar numbers that are in your profile. You should be good to go.


Really? That makes me feel a bit better. :) Did you write a UMich essay? I was under the impression that a good chunk of the admits wrote one.

Congrats!

I think it's depressing for me to see everyone else get in at all these places, seeing how many people applied in October, etc.

Frankly, I was working more on my Halloween costume on 10/26 than my LS apps. :P So I guess I'm being punished by having to wait to hear back.

Thanks! Though trust me, when I look at all the September applicants, I feel like a slacker. :P

As a URM with a 175+ and a 3.5 you probably shouldn't freak out at all.

Just sent app in today. I wasn't going to apply, but after the letter where Dean Zearfoss signed and wrote a little note to me...I figured why not. I was trying to run away from the cold though.

Damn, I also got a letter with a handwritten note from Zearfoss. She said Michigan loves grads from my undergrad. Now I need to question the sincerity of her comments. Did she also tell you she LOVES undergrads from your school?
I attend an ivy so I believed it, but now I'm beginning to wonder. Maybe her handwritten note is simply to boost the number of people applying....DAMN

I notice a lot of these notes (from all schools) tend to be very short and generic. "I love <insert one thing that proved I read your resume or PS>!"

Edit: Oh, I thought this was an acceptance letter.

I got a letter too, about environmental law.

But just because she did it for everyone doesn't make it less special. I mean, think about it: how many of those letters did she send out? Hundreds? That's a lot of letter writing and signing, which at least shows she's willing to take a substantial time out of her day to make people feel good about themselves.

I was wondering if she has one of those stamps that resembles a handwritten note. You've seen those, right? Maybe she just takes her stamper out and has different stamps with different comments and she puts one of say 10 stamps on everyone's letter that goes out.

Unless she has one for each major, I doubt that this is the case. I wouldn't be surprised if it was not Dean Z but anyone of a number of people in the admissions office who write them though. Still is above and beyond what other schools do.

There is no way I can answer this without exposing what my undergrad is. But no that's not exactly what she said.

Ego-stroke achieved.

Really, though, if her (apparently) handwritten signature is on a letter, I doubt she'd allow somebody else either to write the message and let her sign it or to sign a facsimile signature himself. Doesn't really seem like Dean Z's style. Here's to inspecting such a message on a letter sent to me! :P

Check the paper and see if it was actually hand signed. There should be impression marks on the backside.

I went to information sessions (not Michigan) at an Ivy (grad school) and state school (UG), the tone toward applicants were definitely different. They absolutely stroke the Ivy ego. I don't know if it really translate to anything in the admission process though.

Still, I would like to receive one of those notes.

The notes Dean Z write on the acceptance letters are really cool though. Berkeley won't even send a letter (to be green) :)

Any one has the same experience before.
Last night, I tried to log in my status checker, but the system said my account didn't exist!
I was able to check in today, but it is still COMPLETE. Does the incident of last night indicate anything? They might reject/admit me and pull my account out yesterday/today?

Thanks
