+1. Will do the same. Received the email this morning and after reading it was like a whole lot of nothing actually being said. Other than "some of us like you and some of us don't." Thanks?

Got the email today too. It mentions sending a new transcript, but my gpa dropped in the fall. Will it look worse if I don't send one 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?

:) i like the optimism. if you're right just imagine... dean Z sending this out too reassure us and as a sorry for the wait, but instead it's sent us all into a HUGE frenzy of panic :P

above both 75ths, i figured the long wait on me was because i had a dec lsat even though i sent in my app months ago. wrote a why mich, are we all agreeing that it's LOCI time? :(

out of all the emailed people... are we all above the 75ths? or is it an even mix of numbers? what if they just sent it out to EVERYONE who's been waiting for x amount of time? has this happened before?

This is getting dangerously close to a double rainbow "what does it all mean?!?!?!?" moment...

If you send LSAC a new transcript, they send it to the schools automatically right?

I got the e-mail too, I just see it as an apology e-mail for the wait. But I do think it means none of us is getting any scholarship money.

This email was certainly not sent to only people above both 75ths. I am a splitter who ED'd and received no decision. Since then (Dec 15), I heard not a peep from Mich until today, when I got this same email with a paragraph thrown in about how much they appreciate my interest in early decisioning.

I thought at first it was because I just registered for the Feb LSAT, but now that I see you >75 people getting it, I guess it went out to a lot of people. I think I'll wait for my Feb score and maybe write an additional essay, but I guess that won't be until March. I'll probably be waitlisted by then anyway.

Dear Michigan,
You are not alleviating stress :(
Acceptance will alleviate stress.
I can haz acceptance plz?
Sincerely,
moneko


I would have been just fine waiting and thinking "wow, they take freaking forever (like Cornell!)" but instead this weird non-waitlist, non-ding, non-decision email does the exact opposite. So weird.

There is no advantage. I've just been accepted to several schools I would take over mich.

+10000. I don't check my status checkers or get all paranoid about stuff when I haven't heard anything. I'm sitting here patiently thinking I might get lucky with a scholarship and now I'm just like wtf? Confused feelings now.

About 2 weeks ago I just stopped checking status checkers because it's like watching water boil. And it's been heavenly that way. I wasn't worried about you, Michigan! But after this email I can't stop thinking about why they don't all agree to like me. :( I was fine just waiting for the emails/letters and reading TLS in the meantime. I wasn't stressed out, Dean Z., but now I am.

I received the email today also. I don't see it as a hold, rather an attempt to "update" an applicant (that they are still in review?).

FYI, at/above medians.

It looks like a similar email went out around this time last year. Some of those who received it managed to get in, so I'm holding out hope.

i didn't read it as a hold at all, I figured it was probably a result of the tons of phone calls I'm sure they've been getting from people concerned with their applications...

plus, i've already been deferred from early decision and i got the email, so I doubt it would be a hold on a deferral. I'm sure they just want us to know that theyre still looking at our files.

I just got a person reply along the same tone from UVA, I am looking at it as the same thing as from Harvard - we will consider you later once we figure out where the bar is set based on the complete pool of this cycle. Or - you are not getting in until we are done taking applications.

For the record, I have not received this UM email yet. I got the checker 12/15 so maybe they haven't gotten around to mine/ours yet

Received email as well. Below 25th gpa / above 75th LSAT. Has anyone who was deferred from ED received a final decision?

I'm in this club too. Though, with my numbers, Michigan is a reach. So I'm not getting my hopes up.

Well I don't know then, I guess we will see. I was an admit last year, so I would be really bummed if I don't get back in :( I never even got a chance to visit.
