Called! Spoke to a very nice woman there, she said it means nothing and it was sent based on submission dates, just to keep people who applied early informed and apologize for the long wait.

she also said Dean Z has posted a blog post about this very issue because there was so much confusion!! :mrgreen:

here's the link to to blog post -- it's called "Chill Lemur Speaks"...think she's talking to us? ;)

The email says, in essence, thank you for your patience; we are sorry we haven’t yet sent you a decision; we are attempting to strike a balance between making decisions as quickly as possible with making the best decisions we can.

I'm loving the lemur at the end of it. Makes me feel like I'm in a waiting thread again, haha.

I hope they figured out that the email they sent, that was intended to destress us, ultimately caused so much panic and chaos that she had to post a blogpost that ended in a chill the fuck out lemur. She should have just sent me the lemur yesterday.

so basically if you didnt get the email and your status checker date is before whatever the latest date was for people who received an email, a decision has been made, you just dont know it yet

and if you got the email either she cant make a decision on you, or different readers of your file have different thoughts on you

it still sounds like a hold to me

it's not, though...some people got the emails and got in the same day, or the next day (as proven by TLS). A hold means "we will definitely not be giving you a decision in the next few weeks". Some people will be 'held' in that they won't hear back for a while, but that's not what the email is meant to say. It just means "sorry, we know you're still waiting, and we're still looking at your app."

I can make pecan pie. I baked my first one in middle school for a project.

I think Michigan is being extra careful about yield protection this year. Most of the people who got the email yesterday have match to auto admit numbers.

it sounds like applicants who submitted before mid-november and did not receive an email are "slated" for a decision. the scary snail mail kind.

Just asked the question on the blog that all of us who did not receive the e-mail are wondering. Clearly outing myself, and will probably take this post down eventually, since it would appear that Dean Z is a lurker on TLS!

I am now dreading opening my mailbox. Ugh. To find and envelope from U Mich only to discover a rejection would be so painful. I'd so much rather an e-mail saying I was getting rejected. It's like pulling off a band-aid slowly to open such a letter.
