Yes, but said applicant also got accepted to Cornell and some other high ranked schools.
His name is alphagamma on LSN..must be a frat boy.

I envy a frat boy with those numbers. If it's real.

lsn has 2 feb acceptances with darrows.


Hm ok. But I mean more along the lines of for Jan/Feb submitters...

edit: disclosure - I've been tossing around the idea of using a Mich fee waiver for a month or so. They seemed to recruit me pretty hard (harder than anyone else; think they need some gays up there) and I like me some Midwest (but not a fan of UChi).


well, they were Jan submitters. If you have a fee waiver, why not just do it?

Yes. It means that you did not check your status on 28th, 29th, 30th and 31st.

Nah, I check them all two times a day. Maybe I just didn't notice.

Just check the admitted site instead. You will not see any meaningful update before you could gain access to the ASW.

I got an email Jan 11 saying they received my initial materials and haven't heard anything since. I'm sure that's just b/c they're so busy going over apps now though.

Yeah give it a month (or two) to get the status checker.

Alright, I'm pretty worried about my app at this point.

I feel like maybe they're just waiting for me to give up? The thing is, I actually want to go to Mich, but I need a good financial package to be able to afford it. I feel like every day they leave my application sitting in the corner, my chances for $$ are dwindling.

Michigan doesn't work this way unless you are hoping for a Darrow. If you get in, you will get offered (if your numbers are good enough, which they are).

Similar situation here, except I mostly want to use any $$ I get to leverage money from somewhere else, but I'm definitely getting frustrated that I haven't heard yet... oh well :?

Um, it means you were admitted. I don't see how you could possibly interpret this in a different way.

Just got my status checker! Hopefully the decision will not take much longer than getting this email (1+ month).
