The status itself is decision, and then there is a note at the bottom that reads something to the effect of "we regret to inform you that we are unable to offer you a seat in our upcoming class."

I know everyone on here watched me try and read the crystal ball, so you may know my situation, but:

LSAT just above/ GPA below each 25%, non-URM, no e-mail.

Not quite surprised, outside of the context of all the other schools that given me the more desirable wait list or hold.
Best of luck to everyone, especially those for whom UMich is a first choice.

And, does anyone know if the reject snail mail comes with a handwritten note? Because that's what I really feel like I am going to wish I had.


No, it doesn't. But mine was signed by Dean Z and had a word underlined in pen also, which was interesting I thought.


Cool. Not looking for you to respond, but I speculate she underlined the "not" in the part where schools say "our decision is NOT a reflection of school X's impression of whether you will be a successful lawyer." Assuming it even says something like that, I'm yet to receive mine from the mailman. It would seem like they try to soften the blow, which is nice. I appreciate that more than the fee waivers that address me as Mr. _X__.

For those getting bitter, save it for the ding bar. Let those accepted and awaiting decisions not be swayed by our cynicism.

Ditto but Complete since early Dec. Radio Silence is disconcerting.

The radio silence is starting to get to me.
Do rejection letters come by owl, or is that just for acceptances?

I haven't had any movement on any of my apps in almost a month now except that silly email from Dean Z, so I'm going crazy. Ugh, come on Michigan, give me SOMETHING.


That's how I feel luxxe. Really would love Mich to come throughnfor me this week. After visiting Columbia, I realized I think NYU would be a better fit for me, but Michigan was always my other number one so it's quickly become my top choice. I just want to be able to start looking for housing and getting excited about wherever I'm going.


Really, you didn't like Columbia? They're the only school I'm waiting on (and totally don't think I'm getting in) but am interested in hearing your rationale.


Don't get me wrong, it's a great school but when I revisited I remembered why I was unimpressed with Columbia when I visited in high school. Although they have the benefit of saying they have a "campus" in NY, it's not really that large and the surrounding area is pretty boring IMO (I like visiting the MET and whatnot, but it's not exactly near the epicenter of action in NY). That's not a reason NOT to go, but in general, the energy on the campus is a bit more muted and intellectual. Sometimes I find that tranquility kind of relaxing, especially in New York, but I also feel somewhat detached from the city when I'm there.

Maybe it was because it was the first time I visited NYU, but even without a campus the energy surrounding the campus was far more my style. The vibe was electric and stimulating in comparison IMO. I also preferred NYUs facilities. Aesthetically they are far more pleasing than CLS, but even their amenities I liked a lot more. Obviously I couldn't talk to professors, but students at CLS (law students and students in general) I find to be a bit more reserved and keep to themselves compared to NYU students.

Those are just a few of my observations, I realize these could be positives or negatives depending on the person. AA offers more of what I want than both schools though.

You hear me Dean Z??

Thanks for the insightful response. I guess I'll have to wait and hear back from CLS but since I probably won't be getting in, I probably won't have to consider anyway.

So far, the only person who did NOT get the email but was accepted anyway applied so late that s/he shouldn't have gotten the email to begin with, correct?

Also, just wanted to note how absolutely ridiculous it is that Michigan has made a decision on my app for about three weeks now but has still not updated the status checker.

I didn't get the email but I'm just complete at 1/16 & no rejection letter in the mail today. Am I the only non-emailer left surviving?? :(

edit: I got my status checker on 11/22

No there's a bunch of us (me, for example, a 12/7 status checker). Most of the no email + no dinger today crowd seems to have strong numbers, FWIW. So I dunno...

Well hopefully you just haven't been reviewed yet with your 12/7 date! I feel like most of the 11/22ers have been either accepted or axed by now

How do you know they have a decision? I have the same status checker date as you so I would love our acceptances to roll out soon.....

I'm in the no-email (from Dean Z), no-decision bunch. I'm above both 75%'s. No Why Mich. Applied 11/08 and got status checker 12/07. My status is still complete and I have no received anything in the mail. Bracing for tomorrow.

If they made their decision on your app before sending the email, then I don't think you're in the same boat as those that are stuck at complete without an email.
