Yes I did. I'm going with a definite WL for me as I submitted 9/15. I'm pretty upset as I really and truly love Mich and would be more than happy to attend.

Worst case scenario, can't you write a LOCI or even visit the school to let admission know your commitment

Well, yes, though I should ammend my previous "would be more than happy to attend" to "would be more than happy to attend if offered a substantial scholarship". Which, after being WL, may not be so possible.

If I recall correctly, in the past people have sent LOCIs to MVP, been admitted immediately and given scholarship money.

I wouldn't be so sure that you are a W/L. I am 3.9 with 167 not URM without a Why Michigan and got accepted, so you definitely will. Maybe they are just being quirky with the timing of responses and submits dates.

I believe elibrarian is more worried about a W/L for yield protection purposes.

I don't know if anyone has said this yet, but I got a scholarship letter in the mail today from Michigan! It still does not say anything about a scholarship letter in my Mail and Money section, though, so if you don't have it, don't worry! You might still be getting one

I'm new here and don't really understand the system for acceptance/rejection... I had "decision" listed on my status checker and was able to log into the admitted students website. Does that mean for sure I'm in?

Congrats! It says something about a scholarship letter in my Mail and Money section and I haven't received one yet...maybe it's some sort of reverse psychology trick.

Gives me hope that my letter might come today, though.

I haven't gotten my letter yet either, but the amount showed up in my Financial Aid Award Information under Mail and Money. I feel like the ASW is stealing all the surprise from snail mail.

Ohh, thank you for pointing that out to me. Does anybody know if the dollar amount is yearly or total?
