Oh, don't be whiney. I have no clue about ED rejections.
... Decided to look it up in the Mich FAQ

If an applicant is not admitted under Early Decision, his or her application will be rolled over into the regular decision pool.


There you go.

i was a 11/18 person and was able to log in to ASW on 12/3.


Oh congrats! Although now i'm a bit paranoid...


I am 11/18 and haven't heard back either. I don't think we need to be worried yet!

It's not exactly something most people pay attention to. Have they ever rejected anyone...probably. Is it common...doubt it.

Thanks! And we have pretty similar #s, too, so that definitely cheers me up. :D

I have to say...I know almost everyone in here is a 0L and all...but you all need to get better at looking stuff up. That is in large part what LS is....and being a lawyer. If one more person says "OMG my status updated, is that important?" I'm leaving this thread. It's on like every damn page...just search/read a little. Or questions that are in the FAQ... Half the topics posted on TLS alone are easily searchable. Get used to finding the answers for yourself instead of relying on others...

Thanks sanguar :mrgreen:

Honestly, I'm used to asking a question and having it ignored. It happens. His comment just solicited a similar response. It was meant in good humour. It actually gave me a good excuse to read the FAQ, which I am now pouring over for any more useful information. But I do agree that more often than not, people can find their own answers in less time than it takes to wait for the thread to answer your question.

Guilty on the whiny charge I'm just on edge. I did try to look it up tho it just wasn't clear if someone with say a 2.0/140 would just get rejected or rolled over to rd

I'd guess rejected unless exceptional softs. That's just way too far from the range...and more importantly the caliber of people we admit.

lol. Yeah, sounds pretty clear on the faq that they just roll everyone over (followed by a quick reject?). Good luck if those are your actual numbers. Hope you have some great softs :wink:

It means they rolled you into regular decision. There's an explanation at the bottom of the status checker page.

Thank you, I definitely know this, for I read them like thousand times. But I don't understand what does that mean? If ED is not OK, how can RD favor me? Or ED just need higher qualification?

or NO DECISION just mean waitlisted? That's easier to understand.

I think for most EDs it means they don't have a good enough idea of what the entire applicant pool will look like, so they want to get a better idea of that before they accept or reject you. I don't know what your application looks like though so I can't really give you a good estimate of their rationale behind it. Wish we could help more :/

my numbers are not that strong. LSAT 163..

but I consider myself as a non-traditional applicant. 4 years WE. good UG GPA. (not superior). And I showed strong interest to M. Will that help?

:shock:

Her blog is the best.


Agreed. I love her sense of humor (and I really want to meet her! ASW?).


I've had the pleasure of meeting her, she's more amazeballs in person.
