I'm rarely ever this earnest, so I hope people perk up their ears and listen good. It'll be the last time for a while.
love Michigan, and you know you want to graduate as a Wolverine after spending 3 amazing years in Ann Arbor, I hope that you don't for a second give up on them. The waitlist at Michigan is not the kiss of death it is at a place like UVA or Columbia. There are acceptances from the waitlist every year, and I was one of them. (Deferred my place, and will be attending with a sizable scholarship that I never could have hoped for, let alone predicted) If you want Michigan just to throw their scholarship in the face of some place you like more, then whatever. I don't really have much advice for you. Better luck with UVA? But if you actually want Michigan, and you have the effort, compelling reasons, and numbers that are at least in the shadows of their 25ths, wait it out. Do what you have to do. Write the LOCIs and make a plan for what you could do in a year off. I don't regret my decision for a minute. And if you need any help along the way, feel free to PM me.
And with that, I'll leave you to your mass hysteria. Good luck!
