+1. Got the email yesterday and got in today. So much stress for nothing, I'd definitely suggest people hold off on LOCIs. Glad I did.


+1.

My girlfriend just commented that my want for UM is the same as the want a guy has asking out a girl. So sad.

"I want you, just please want me back!"

Gratz! Got the email yesterday, hoping for some news today. GMail is open in a tab in my browser. Groupon has given me heart attacks twice already.

yup.


See, my point about the email was that it means for those of us who did not get it, I believe a rejection is in the works in the short future. Could it really be so arbitrary that an email explaining to keep our hopes up would be sent out to the applicant pool or random?

ETA: Also, rejections last year seem to have been dished out via snail mail. Which would also explain why they didnt send an email - a decision is rendered and incoming.


Rejections are snail mail! Oh, how cruel

Hey, it could be your acceptance packet in snail mail, MSB!

Sorry to go twice, but I just have to post a picture of what my insides feel like at the moment.

That is all. Carry on.

Yeah... I have last year's waitlist release letter sitting beside my acceptance letter in my yellow portfolio... If I end up going with U Mich, I swear I'm going to hang the rejection letter above my diploma.

I just got in via email - really surprised! 3.65/169, didn't think my numbers were good enough.

It looks like the email was an indication of good things...which explains why I didn't get it. Sigh. :( Mich is one of my top choices, too! Can't say I'm surprised, though.

Have you played Angry Birds? It could be one of those situations where I've completely overshot the pig castle.

Hahaha I got the stupid UMass e-mail too. Being from the area I want them to do well but not enough to make me want to go there right now.

Mich, Boalt, and Penn are literally the ONLY 3 schools that I applied to that could potentially pull me away from NU. I wouldn't choose any of them right away over NU, but I'd have to sit down and think very, very carefully about what I want and where I want to be in the next 3 years.

I always knew I was never getting into Boalt or Penn (they both HEAVILY value high GPAs over high LSATs), but I'd had a small well of blind hope that Michigan would take me...but it's looking like that's not going to be the case. ):

Mich acknowledged my response to their mass e-mail yesterday. That was nice of them. Though, I will admit that I was hoping for a fancy admission e-mail before I opened it. I love that they're pretty easy to communicate with.

Is anyone ballsy enough to call admissions and ask why some people got the follow up e-mail yesterday and others didn't? Is this a bad sign? I am not ballsy enough myself but would LOVE to know
