+1

Three weeks ago I wouldn't have been this interested in hearing from Michigan, but it seems like the people who have been getting accepted are much closer to my stats than I would have thought. Hopefully Mich residency and a strong Why Mich will only help me!

I know this is stupidly naive, but from observing this cycle and the last, Mich. really might be as "holistic" as they come for the T14. I know numbers still are dominant, but they look like they're really trying to get a class going that's committed to the school and dedicated to doing well. So far almost all of you with money seem to be highly interested in the school, and you can tell when you all post. Perhaps that's coming out to the adcomms and they're rewarding you all?

Again, forgive the naivete, just giving myself some hope :p


I really like Mich but I dunno if it showed on my "Why" essay :( Did you guys getting scholly $$$ all write super strong Why essays?


I wouldn't stress man, I was just speculating. Relax and enjoy the cycle Strange, at least you've already got some acceptances. I'll trade you one of yours for some potential debt in the future :lol:

So if your paragraph on the financial aid section of ASW disappears and it just says "Zero Awards Found" that means no scholarship money? If so >> :(

Did you end up getting money after it just said zero awards found?

Do you folks mean people who got their status checkers around 11/22? Or submitted on 11/22? Between all the threads I'm checking compulsively, sometimes I forget what's going on.

If you submitted on 11/22, I'm not sure you're likely to hear back until 2012.

I'd give it another week. Mich is slow in their process, and you're not incredibly past the time that you should've gone complete.

JELLY! you were ED though. But it seems like RDers are also getting accepted that were complete on or after 11/18 :(

I got the status checker 11/10 and haven't heard anything yet.

174/3.81

What's the deal?

I didn't write "why Mich" but I included it in my PS, tying it into the central theme.
Did not write a Diversity statement.
I had a lot of leadership experience in UG and beyond.

Dean's scholarships are for leadership experience and academic potential/achievement, according to their website, so I'm not sure if writing a strong why essay correlates with money.


I'm starting to get a little depressed. My numbers seem to be equal/better than some that got $$, I wrote a "Why Mich" essay, wrote a non-URM diversity statement, and I have significant leadership experience (military). I'm wondering if some of the personal information I included in my PS and resume might have lead them to think I have more financial resources than I really do (the housing market hit me hard!). Not that it should matter for merit aid, right?

I'd really like to go to Michigan, but it may boil down to a financial decision.

Oh well.

Perhaps.

How does one avoid YP? I wrote a Why Michigan essay and am genuinely interested in UMich if the price is right.

I got my status checker on 11/18 and also haven't heard anything. I think those of us with numbers above median/75th percentile who haven't heard shouldn't worry until AFTER more of the ED decisions come out. Maybe they are waiting to see if people withdraw?

Well if it is YP, the worst that can happen is a WL. if you write a LOCI, I'm sure you would get off it in a jiffy. though I think it's still too early for all that. but I am worried since I'm marginal at best at Mich, though some people got surprising acceptances so I'm holding out hope.

Zero awards, but didn't expect any.

Also, I was 11/18 complete, RD
