Just got knocked off by Duke. C'mon, Michigan, you're honestly my last hope.

Sent 1/20, received 1/25. Didn't realize I had a fee waiver till later when I was wondering if I should have applied there...

(sorry, but I'm really excited still)


I've decided to do the opposite of thought-dicking for everyone who got accepted today. So even though I'll say things like FUCK YOU CAMPY, i really have warm proud fuzzies in my heart that y'all got in.

I call it: thought-hugging.

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!


I'm in the exact same situation, but I've been complete since October. It seems a waitlist is inevitable. I sent in a LOCI in January after the email... is there anything else I can do?

Would love to visit Ann Arbor if I was closer, but this isn't really a possibility for me.

Apologize if this has been answered, but when you get a status checker and you are at Complete, does it mean that they have begun reviewing your application or are do they just have everything ready to review?

As per the little explanation on the Michigan status check page: "Complete: Your application is currently being reviewed"

It means nothing, it means everything. The compete is all, and it is nothing.


:-D the stress is getting to me. It means pretty much nothing until it changes to acceptance.

when you least expect it...BAM!
In today via status checker.

I was just getting used to the idea of moving to Berkeley. So long rainbows and butterflies and sunshine. Hello Midwest...again. I wish I knew how to quit you.

Do we have any idea whether the status checker updates more than once a day yet? e.g., can it change from complete to accepted in the same day?


No one? Anyone?

I believe it updates once in the morning and that's it for the day.

Not at all. I visited UVA while on the waitlist and decided it wasn't for me. Hopefully, you have the opposite reaction and write an awesome LOCI as a result.

Thank you so much :D!! The decision about next year suddenly got really, really difficult. I've spent a lot of time today looking at their LRAP/summer funding... so good.

Good idea, JoeMo. I did something similar--updated my Why Mich after a visit. Got in, and there was a nice note about my meeting with admissions on the letter.

Rooting for you, charliep. Don't let me down!
