I assume if you got the e-mail (and I did) that they think we're okay but not great - we're still under consideration, but we're not first in line for acceptance, so they're warning us of the wait.

11/07, 12/09 here and did not receive the email (yet?). What does this mean? I am afraid to check my mail now.

12/15 here (11/18 submission) w no email. I think it's based on dates, not quality.


11/18 submissions, 12/22 status checker, no email, too.


1/22 submission, 12/22 status checker, no email.

I find it interesting to hear that Michigan does it's rejections via snail mail rather than email. I actually prefer the email rejections and snail mail acceptances model. At least you can just approach your mailbox with anxious excitement rather than anxious excitement/dread.

email here as well! Been complete via status checker since 10/26...

above 75th LSAT, right below median GPA, wrote Why Mich...

EDIT: To clarify, the same "hold"ish email everyone else here got today. Anyone know if they did this last year and outcomes? Could be that we'll end up a mixed bag of results...

Agreed. I'd much rather receive bad news via email and good news via post. Email seems a lot less personal.

Just got the hold e-mail. Sort of strange they aren't going out in a massive batch.

if we've already written a Why Mich, does it make sense to send in an LOCI?

Are people really reading this as a 'hold' email? That's not what I got out of it at all...

My interpretation is that they reviewed our files and we were neither auto-admits nor auto-rejects so they're going to keep reviewing. And they're sorry it's taking so long and they don't want us to read into that. Perhaps I'm missing something?

You are missing that some people submitting later than you have been admitted? (I think that's what I read in the previous pages)

I wrote 3, so if I don't get in I don't know what else to send.

I submitted a Why Mich with my application in late October. However, I decided that, seeing as how my chances are growing slimmer by the day, why not write a LOCI? So I did. Perhaps it was a poor choice and written too hastily, but it's done sent now. Figured I'd beat the rush of LOCI's that is likely to follow that email.

I read it as a hold e-mail. From the number of these that they sent I think they are doing a pre-waitlist to see who sends in additional materials.
