I think me, you, TL, jmj, and TS are the only plebes left in the cold after today's acceptances of those of us who have been living in this thread recently. You're right, I can thought dick -_-

I'm also wondering whether I should've disregarded the email I and where they told me to hold off on a LOCI, but at the same time I've gotten help from them before and they didn't steer me wrong so I guess I'll just wait until Friday.

I sent in an additional essay after I got that mysterious Dean Z email a month or so back. I'm still waiting to hear. :(

I basically just poured out my lovey Dovey feelings for mich and how awesome they are for my specialty. Then I had several TLSers rip it apart and sew it back together as a coherent letter.

ETA: no word yet on whether it was worth it.

Hey guys, long time lurker here...but I'm hoping to get some advice on whether or not to write an LOCI

I applied early January and my app just went complete a week ago or so. I am a reverse splitter and did not originally write a Why Michigan essay, but could likely write one that is pretty meaningful. Is it too soon to do this? Will writing an LOCI push my file to the back of the pile?

Also, I go to U of M right now....so if I write an LOCI, would it be preferable for me to physically drop off the letter? Or should I stick to snail mail?

I appreciate any and all advice!

Most of all, CONGRATULATIONS to all of you who have been accepted! Here's to joining you in the Law Quad next year!

Yeah. Seeing as I did the additional essays but not the why mich one, I think it might help.

I would think it is way too early to think about doing this, but maybe that's just me. They likely haven't even taken a look at your file yet, much less slated it for any kind of decision.

I submitted in early November and didn't send an LOCI until mid-January, and I think that was probably still premature.

I don't know about that. I applied in early January, and I was accepted yesterday. My numbers are definitely borderline. That kind of makes me think that they have probably looked at your file. If I was in your situation, I would just go visit them. They seem to like that kind of thing.

Visit and say what? Have my "Why Mich" essay prepared in a speech form?

To be honest, I'm not even sure where the admissions office is within the law quad...

Um, visit and talk to them? Ask them your LOCI questions, chat about UMich...don't go and give an awkward speech. Haha.

As for the location- google maps? C'mon now ;)

Decided that I should finally start making this thread my homepage. Still at Complete here.

Michigan, if you would just say yes, I would gladly move from my wonderful weather in California up to Ann Arbor, I promise! (The beach is overrated anyway)


Also, congrats to all the recent acceptances!

I sent in additional information to them. Not sure what tipped the scales, mind you, but I did supplement.

Totally agree with this! Just ask them anything you don't know. All you're trying to do is convince them that you have a genuine interest in Mich, which shouldn't be a hard sell considering that you are already there. If they say that a LOCI is a good idea, then I would consider sending one. If you do send a LOCI, I wouldn't call it that, I would just call it additional information. This is all totally at your discretion. Just do what feels right.

How long are LOCIs normally? This LOCI is really just a Why Mich, so about 1 page?

Been complete since mid-November. 99.9% sure of a wait list at this point, having survived the first several rounds of rejections but still without an offer yet. Did get the email back in January. It's agonizing! Would very much like an acceptance.

Is it really beneficial to schedule a trip to Ann Arbor to show the add. com. how interested you truly are? Can anyone speak to this?

Edit: Congrats to all the recent acceptances, by the way! Hearing that some other students who applied early and thought a WL was coming got in gives me hope!
