And, FWIW to anyone still thinking of applying this year or in the future, on my acceptance letter Dean Z wrote something to the effect of: "We really enjoyed reading your personal statement! We agree you'll add a lot of diversity to our student body!" So keep that in mind. Apparently PS's do matter. Unless she was just being froggy.
I'm pretty sure she writes a positive note on everyone's acceptance letter. I'm not saying that the PS doesn't matter, but I don't think you should take this as evidence that Michigan weighs them more heavily than other schools.
Sorry about my delayed reaction. I never said they weighed it more heavily than other schools. I should have qualified my statement, actually. I have 3 acceptances. All three of them have written a note on my acceptance letter. That's not uncommon. But all 3 spoke about my PS. Not sure if that's common or not. But just wanted to throw it out there to current and future applicants. Based on the experience of at least one person, PS's may actually be valuable. So spend the time. Or I could be way of. Just throwing it out there.
Good luck to everyone still waiting. If I can get in, so can you.
IDK what they'd say to me. We really enjoy your LSAT score?
eta, nice job azg
