Anyone have any suggestions? Should I direct it to a specific person or just to University of Michigan Law School Admissions?
I'm of the impression that you don't need to send in LOCI's until you have been waitlisted.
I'm also complete since October (10/26) and have no decision yet. 52/59 acceptances for October applicants came in November or December, so odds are you and I are both probably getting waitlisted at best : https://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key ... _84M#gid=0
(Thanks Ducaltis for summarizing the LSN data!)
While it's a bit premature to SEND the LOCI now, there's nothing wrong with drafting it and having it ready to send as soon as you get an official decision. If Michigan is one of your top choices, I'd say start preparing for a waitlist. Get the LOCI (and Why Michigan if you didn't already write one) ready to send, update fall grades if you have them, find another LOR, etc. Good luck!
