Hi Everyone,

I usually don't post, but I have a quick question. I recently found out via status checker that I was admitted. I have not even received an email yet, but how are people notified if they received a scholarship? Does that come much later? Just hoping....

Thanks!

It will show up on the admitted students website in a couple weeks.

STOP!!! Don't listen to any advice other than this:

WAIT FOR THE SCHOLARSHIP LETTER TO COME IN THE MAIL. TRUST NOTHING UNTIL IT IS IN YOUR HANDS.

this reminds me of when there's a roomful of angry people in a Mexican stand-off and some joker comes running in with a hilariously non-serious comment

anyway, CONGRATULATIONS!!

Seriously, an explanation shouldn't take that long. Also, don't edit it in...then we have to keep refreshing that page instead of the whole thread.

If that's the case, how would username08 even have been able to see an amount on the ASW? I don't know when username08 was admitted, but from reading back through the posts today, it seems like he/she had that information (the scholarship) for awhile, given that he/she was afraid fall grades may lower the amount. How did username08 see the amount if the file was still being processed by financial aid?


Maybe this is the danger of looking online before a letter is mailed? Not positive, but if it's going to change I'd guess it would be before a letter was mailed.


180. I think everyone still waiting should just chill and wait for the USPS to work its magic.

This thread has been nothing short of AMAZING the last few weeks. Fights, lies, betrayal, deceit. This makes me want to attend ASW that much more now!

I really hope everyone gets this out of their system before 1L.

I'm much happier around nice people than dramatic people.

This is most certainly the ugly side of TLS. I thought gunning was reserved for 1L.

As much as I'm bummed about the things going on in this thread, I'm more and more impressed with Michigan and the transparency Dean Z and the admissions department employ. From what I've seen, it's largely unparalleled.

I think is an example of Dean Z being too transparent, though.

2L. Nor am I dramatic...I'm actually very pleasant in person.

I feel like it humanizes an otherwise very mechanical and difficult process. She's the best I've seen at attempting to calm down applicants who are on the verge of breaking down.

Wait... I'm confused? He/she is a 1L? I thought he/she stated they were on a journal and busy writing a note... I'm pretty sure he/she is a 2L.

I don't think you can be too transparent. I mean, how can you not like her when she takes action immediately when she finds out there is an issue? Name another school that would have acted as quickly as she/Michigan did?
