Doing the lawroles for me. Just tried again.

But the ASW page still shows up when I click on current students. For what it's worth I use Chrome.

The letter in the mail specifically stated that due to the size of the merit award, I would not be eligible for need-based grants, but I can get need-based loans. I don't know if that's true for all sizes of the merit awards or not.


Interesting. Mine says "Dean's Scholarships are awarded without regard to financial need. You may, in addition, qualify for need-based financial aid, and you will likely be interested in applying for loans."

Maybe it's based off of the financial section we submitted. As a UG I only had to take out an outside loan really my freshman year, because my financial situation qualified me for plenty of need based aid.

This may be a stupid question, but...what financial section? I just went back and looked at my transmitted LSAC app, and there's nowhere to list any financial details.


Sorry about that, I just assumed it did, but when I checked my application on LSAC it didn't have any financial info. In any case, I would still say yes you can get both merit and need based aid based on what my letter stated.

I think everyone should check their letters when they get them. My letter really did say that based on the size of my award, I wouldn't be eligible for need-based grants, but I could apply for loans. Who knows, it might be based on small differences in the size of the award.


Anyway, the housing section on ASW is updated!!!

Yeah, this would be my guess. I got $18k/year - looks like that's the cutoff for being ineligible for need aid.

Same :(

Quick question: I went complete on 11/03 or something, and sent in a late LOR on the 12th. Would that push me back later?

I would think maybe, but Michigan actually encouraged me to apply piecemeal so that they could get a jump start on my application. I'm beginning to think that this augurs poorly... (GPA ~median, LSAT >> 75%, Why Mich?, Mich specific PS)

Just received a Darrow invite via email. Super pumped!! Obviously the odds are low, but does anyone know what happens to your merit-based money if you apply and don't get it? Is it an all-or-nothing kind of deal or might you still receive a generous package even if you aren't able to attend Michigan for free??

Wow!!! Congratulations! That is amazing and I think you're the first this year. Hopefully, this means good news for others soon. I'll be paying sticker but I don't care since Michigan was my #1.

Finally! After a week of knowing I was in, I was finally able to access ASW this morning. :)

Seeing that blue page is like the best thing ever. Even if I knew I was in, I still just wanted to get into ASW.

Fall Starter here.

All these acceptances are driving me mad. I still don't have a status checker. I know Michigan takes their time, but save a seat for me!

This. At least if I had a status checker I could drive myself mad.
