i believe merit-based ones come about 2 weeks after the first packet...need-based (obviously) require application and happen later!

Probably when the economy recovers, decreasing test-taker population and number of testers scoring 170+.

Not necessarily. The test taking population may maintain its current rates, but medians can't continue to rise indefinitely.


Yeah...that's kind of a non-argument and not at all in contradiction to what I said. So...okay??

For those wondering, my status checker only today updated to "decision" and I can access the admitted student's website (so it seems to be a legit way to figure out if you got in or not w/o the mail in hand).


Congrats to mrmangs and vertex!

It looks like there's a healthy wave of acceptances coming out. Only if I could be included in that. lol.

I consider anything under 70 to be absolutely freezing. But I'll take 24/7 numbness for Michigan. Should've included that in my why mich...


I actually did say something similar in my "Why Mich?" last year. It hasn't been too too cold yet though.

Anyway, just popping into this thread to congratulate those who've heard back already and wish the others good luck. I'm a 1L at Mich and even though it's getting to be crunchtime I'm still pretty happy to be here. If y'all have any questions, don't forget there's a thread for that here. It is almost exam time so answers might be slow, but I know a few people in that thread have said they're open to PMs and I am as well, especially since I'm pretty much never on TLS anymore. The questions already asked might be helpful too.

And for those asking about scholarships, iirc the Dean's Scholarships didn't start to go out until January last cycle even though they say two weeks. The Darrow invites went out earlier, maybe Novemberish?

You've been on tls too long if you think everything has to be argumentative. All I was saying was that a decrease in test takers isn't even necessary.

If anyone's interested, I didn't write a Why Michigan essay or any of the optional essays.

Maybe I should have phrased it as, "that's not a novel proposition and not at all in contradiction to what I said." I was confused as to why you quoted me, since the relationship between that post and yours wasn't really evident...the "Not necessarily" made little sense in that context.

In any case, congrats to those who are already in, I hope I join your ranks sooooooonnnn! :P

When logging on to check my status:

"No record was found for the given UM ID and birth date. Please contact the Admissions Office for further information."

Michigan straight deleted me from the system already? Ouccch. Lol

I think that's a good educated guess. Mine works fine 30 minutes ago and still is. So at least for me, no status change materially. Mine says updated as of Nov 16. But, those who are experiencing that problem are probably because they're changing your status to decision. I may be jumping the gun, but I'd rather be in your shoes since reject decisions usually don't come out until January.

Does anyone check the admitted student site lately? Or are we sticking with the status checker?

I don't think anyone's seen changes throughout the day.

I just submitted on Sat, and my status checker already says "Decision"!

But it was probably left over from last year :mrgreen: I tried to log in to the admitted site, I can authenticate, but can't gain access, so maybe they never deleted me from the system. I have not received a received or complete email, I hope they don't auto-reject me...

You're a patient man. I used to log in once a day. Now that I know I am the only nutso, I'll stay off til the status checker says decision.
