Cool stuff. Congrats!

Michigan has been pretty chilly toward me, but as a late October applicant I will retain hope.

It just dumps every few days, and now I come to find out these things might just be emailed. Argh. Oh well. I'll ask them to update my email to another account and hope I didn't miss anything critical from them or any other school. Back to checking my Spam folder too.

Can't you simply...change the email listed on LSAC?

I think I could have if I'd realized earlier in the cycle. Now its on all my apps so the schools use it anyways. Most have changed over anyhow as I've realized it was a problem. I just didn't think Michigan would be using email only to contact anymore since its has that mail section, where the other email showed up, and I stopped checking since I switched over my other communications for the schools that I've been accepted to. Even if I update my email on LSAC now, the schools won't do it without me contacting them (which I am now going to do just do). Its just a pain. Don't almost all the other schools snail mail or call with merit awards? That's been my experience so I just had put it out of my mind. Just when you think you are safe not to stalk a TLS thread....

You could also try not using hotmail for anything, ever, as it sucks. :P

Hahahaha - you are absolutely right. I was already told I was showing my age at having a hotmail account when all went wrong in the Yale thread. I must say, I have had this email address since 1996 roughly. You all were probably still in cribs. ;)

ETA: Just heard back from Michigan. I am officially a totally internet-challenged dummy. I did miss the email. Thank you thank you thank you TLS. I guess without checking here, I would have just missed the deadline and never even known. That's more than a little frightening! I think this is the first evidence I have seen that obsessively checking all pertinent threads on a daily basis even after being admitting is actually a VERY GOOD IDEA

I hate you! (and I'm totally jealous of you and if you come to Mich on a Darrow I might kick you as you walk through the quad)

you know that's totally not true and I just have the most admiration for you

Question: How long after you get your admissions letter do you receive merit award information? Will you be told if you don't receive any money?

Thanks!

Any chance u watch 'The League'? By coincidence, they spent much of last night's episode making fun of people who have hotmail accounts. My husband kept rewinding and playing parts back..it was painful. I never should have told him I still use my hotmail account on occasion.

Aladdin- the email they send out after acceptance says merit awards will be notified within 6 weeks of acceptance beginning in Jan. I wouldn't mark it on your calendar but its probably a good time frame-ish.

I've been meaning to watch it but now I'm going to wait until it comes out on DVD so that I can watch the whole thing. Looks like a good show.

There's no point in checking the Admitted Students log-in until your status checker says a decision has been made, right?

The status checker won't update until you've received your letter in the mail, or close to that date. ASW updates the day after they make the decision, so it's faster.

MumofCad- Hmmm, I have been admitted (I received the admissions packet and can log onto ASW), but I never got an admittance email. That’s weird...

Thanks for the information...should I be worried I didn’t receive an email?

I didn't get the "I would hate to..." email until about 2 weeks after my decision. No initial email though.
