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.
They are just starting to hand out money. Hang tight. The Darrow invites haven't even gone out. Sounds like you might be in the running for one? I'm not sure what the numbers are around those, but you could look on LSN and try and see.
