ETA: Last Thursday the date "got stuck" and Friday the big waitlist wave came out. Also, some people were accepted too.


Did it get stuck for everyone or only for people that had changed to "Decision"?


It looks like everyone. It starts on page 142 I think.

I also looked at the big waves of decisions from last year and there was a big waitlist wave at the end of Feb and a big wave of decisions at the beginning of March.


Right you are, i forgot that that was the same day of the week. well lets hope tomorrow´s not quite so brutal :( last week wasn´t a lot of fun...

saw this in the wait-list thread - like it says, not unique to Michigan, but still discouraging. think i'll withdraw since I was wait-listed.

Michigan sucks because it's in a dead part of the country. East coast peer schools like UVA don't have it nearly as bad.

I'd love to hear from Michigan...I applied a little late because I didn't even really think about it til they sent me a fee waiver and their booklet. Then I fell in love..and here I am. Waiting.

+1

At first I was like....but Michigan is cold. And then someone showed me a picture of the campus and I looked at their clinical offerings...and now I love Michigan like no other. Waiting blows.

yeah that's what I figured. I had a chat with an attorney at big-name firm and he's saying schools in large cities, like GWU, might be a better bet since the federal government is never going away (despite recent slashes). Your big city prospects in Michigan are.. Detroit? :?

(and this discussion is relevant to this forum for those of us waitlisted / withdrawing!!)

Anyone else have "initiated" for NeedAccess under mailings? I definitely did the entire thing, maybe it's just some code I don't know.

That is hardly unique to michigan. Not even close. But if only for the sake of making oneself feel better then I will concede that it is unique to michigan.

Ehh the vast majority of Michigan grads end up in New York and Chicago and they're so much easier to break into than DC imo. Plus, I work for the federal gov now and this hiring freeze is/will continue to be pretty brutal. So much of the talent is leaving and won't be replaced. Am pretty hopefuly and excited that there might be a government shutdown though. There's probably never any free time off in firms =(

I went to the link at the bottom of the page you linked us to, do we have a username//password?? I would really like to see what firms hired which students.

I am part of the crowd stuck at 3/1 "complete". I was walking home from a bar this evening, bitching about how I hadn't heard from a ton of schools yet, and there, on the doorstep, was a large 8 1/2 x 11 from Michigan. Surprised much? I was certainly surprised. It also came with an amazingly funny hand-written note from Dean Zearfoss--kind-of endeared me to Michigan. Not gonna lie.

:shock: awesome dude!! Holy crap, I'm jealous. Did it come by FedEx?

Also when did you get your status checker and do you live far from Mich?

Being that I just got the ID number today, is it odd that it is complete as of 3/1? Based on what I am reading (although I only went back a few pages) it seems like the status will basically update every day to complete with todays date.
