I wonder if they have a way of tracking IP addresses to logins and can find out who that was. Not that it was necessarily outlandish, but I have to believe that 1) they are on or at least lurking this very thread and 2) they did not get an e-mail!


Actually didn't see it until you mentioned it just now. But seriously, that blog comment is kind of correct. The international incident caused by this email has been pretty nutso, and if the email really was just a courtesy, they probably should have just sent it out to everyone and avoided wasting time on this debacle.


This comes up every single year and nothing they do seems to help. Literally every year. In fact, I posted a warning ITT months ago that this e-mail would be coming and asked it to be added to the OP...which it wasn't. Maybe people should stop freaking out so much so they can focus on doing their jobs (accepting/rejecting people) and not worry so much about how every action will be perceived by a million different people under different circumstances? Could they e-mail everyone? Sure, but once they make a decision you get pulled from the stack and added to a different distribution list. (So, to e-mail everyone they would have to e-mail EVERYONE...even people admitted months ago.) They have enough to do without keeping track of every single person individually.

As to tracking the IP...I'm sure ITS can do it but I doubt they care that much.

Also, this is not an international incident. Incident felt by people worldwide ≠ international incident. Violation of the Laws of Nations between states = international incident.


re: the definition of "international incident" - obviously.

I don't think cf means what you think it means. There is no analogy present.

I got my confirmation email on 12/8 and have heard nothing since. The email indicated that it might take up to six weeks though and Christmas was during that time so I wouldn't completely lose hope yet.

I think all of us around these submitted dates don't have a status checker.

ahhh, h'ok....i read the email as 3-4 weeks to get status checker, and 6 weeks to go complete...guess my email was a bit premature, haha, but i'll post the response if/when i get it!

They started sending out rejections on 1/10 last year. Maybe they'll put some of us out of our misery today?

I heard that the rejections come via status checker then snail mail... mine updated today but still complete. I don't think rejections will come out today

I apologize because I'm sure this has been discussed in length somewhere in the 140 pages contained in this thread, but what is the protocol for submitting a "why Michigan?" after getting the status checker?

My allegiance to a certain school with a, let's say, less than amicable relationship with Michigan for the greater part of the last century prevented me from writing one earlier, but I think I'm ready now :wink:

I was also updated but still complete today (didn't get the email). This is driving me nuts. I just want to hear back from somewhere already! :lol:

I think they change in the morning (I checked mine last night/in the wee hours of the morning before I went to bed, and it was still dated at 1/11).

Email it as an attachment to the admissions office. I did and got a reply two days later acknowledging receipt.

What? No. The Michigan status updater updates the date every day. It doesn't mean anything.

Yes, but we pretend it does because we are all high stress types who thrive on nerves. Notice how we trampled the chill lemur on our way into the thread. Without this stress we might have to be productive, or work, or pretend to write our thesis. Now we have an excuse to not, to post on here, and it is glorious.

+1, submitted 12/8 and still waiting. Wish I could get one so I'd have something unproductive to check 20x every day.

LOL. Oh. Sorry. Totally missed the 3-4 page jump in the thread.

LSN says you've already heard back from at least one place... so tricky you are.

:lol: Touche. But I'm referring mainly to the scores of schools that I SHOULD be hearing from in the next 1-3 weeks (including but not limited to CU Boulder, Michigan, Penn, UVa, GULC, BC, etc etc)
