I submitted right before the holidays and it's been a month now too. I'm not too worried, they're bound to be busier in Dec/Jan than before that...


I am really attempting to wait patiently but it is very hard...submitted 12/14, got the email 12/17.

I just want a status checker!


Dear better qualified law student,

Please withdraw from Cardozo so I can get in, thanks.

Sincerely,
Dude on hold

the million dollar question! i'm the most indecisive person ever and haven't done too too much research just yet, but I'm pretty torn between UMich and Cornell right now (the upside to Cornell is that it's within 2 hours driving distance to home, whereas UMich is a ways away).

I'm going to be in Miami and Puerto Rico for 11 days starting Friday for a bachelors party/wedding, I'm the best man and I told the groom I'd be focused on the wedding and wouldn't be on the comp checking my status on the computer. I don't think I can last that long without checking for updates. Is it even physically possible to not check your status everyday? :?

I wrote them they said I should get one by Friday so I guess that goes for the other people in my boat too.

So applied 11/1, status checker on 11/24, and I'm still at complete with the date changing everyday.

Anyone else who applied around my time/earlier still waiting on anything? I guess my numbers edge on a possible YP for Michigan but I haven't been held yet.

le sigh.

Thanks for the update! I'm finding it pretty funny how slow Michigan is. 5 weeks and no status checker. :P

I applied 11/12 and have a 172/3.88 with your same result. Did you do a " Why Michigan" essay? I haven't ( though probably will ) and think they are holding it against me.

Same app and status checker dates for me. I got the hold e-mail even though I wrote a Why Michigan essay. I have already spent enough time on my Michigan app that if they don't like it I just won't get in.

Is it true that once you're awarded a merit aid, there is no negotiating after that? Even with a Yale acceptance or Columbia full ride?

I actually did write a Why Mich essay, but it was pretty bland. I'm thinking they maybe could sense my lack of enthusiam since I didn't spend a whole heck of a long time on it.

Hmmph.

In via admitted students site!! My status checker still says Complete though. Woooo nice to have some response. It's been a couple of months since I've heard from my remaining schools.

Congrats to everyone else that's gotten in!!

bdubs - it looks like you've got some great choices w/out Mich Law!

In via the admitted students' site! I was able to log in last night, but I wanted to make sure I could still log in this morning to be sure it wasn't a glitch. I'll still feel better once my status updates to "decision" (it still says "complete") or I get the packet in the mail. I applied 11/18 and received a status checker 12/18. No hold email. Good luck to everyone still waiting! Michigan was definitely a reach for me, so getting this acceptance gives me hope that schools do really look beyond the numbers.

Thanks. Yes, I am happy about my options at the moment, but Michigan was one of my top choices and I thought I had a good shot given last years LSN results. Would have really liked to have that Dean's Scholarship option too.
