Dang.


granted, waitlisting a splitter makes perfect sense. I have no real reason to complain other than the fact that I am sad. waitlisting you, however.........is sort of incomprehensible.

Bah, no worries. In the meantime, I'm going to start building a fort in front of the admissions office, complete with sign that reads, "GIRL YOU KNOW YOU WANT ME."

I have extra markers if y'all want to make a sign too, woodscommaL, moxy, and Green Glass Windows. And anyone else. :mrgreen:


Already brainstorming what I'm going to write on my sign...probably "I'd go lesbian for Ann Arbor"

I'll bring libations for the fort.

Everyone loves that Michigan doesn't just focus on numbers...maybe this is the downside to that. I think the results of that philosophy are more arbitrary than they (or we) like to admit.

Condolences to those who lost out. It goes without saying that you will have some great alternatives.

Please occupy that quad like it's Wall Street. I want to see you dirty, beleaguered, and angry when I come visit the school.

Occupy!

The rest of you lot, withdraw and get to Duke! It's a fine and venerable southern institution.

I didn't write any essays. Mich was basically just an afterthought for me, but I changed my mind and I really want to go now. I think I'll work on some stuff to send over the weekend.

I love you for this.

I don't mean to be an ass, but just because you (collective you, not singular you) have great numbers and wrote a "Why Mich" does not mean you will get in. I personally know someone with a 180 and 3.9 that got in and someone with a 3.2 and a 168 that got in and many in between that did not... Michigan is about way more than the numbers and desire to attend... it is about who they feel will fit in best and contribute best to the overall class. Someone who was admitted last year may not have been admitted this year due to class make up, and vice-versa. I completely understand why people are upset, but to bitch about it and act incredulous is pointless. Nobody really knows why anyone is accepted or denied (accept for maybe the 141/2.5 folks that apply).

I second this... Michigan is one of those schools that seems to stand out for looking at the whole picture. I mean, I think I am a clear indication of this since my LSAT is lower than a lot of the people that didn't get in.

I think the incredulous people are just said they won't get to post "Complete" every day from now on.

It's definitely a numbers game, but the T14 gets to pick and choose. I don't know about the rest of the lower T14, but if you look at MVP graphs on LSN, they all WL some people with high stats. Does that mean that HYSCCNMVP are all super holistic? Meh. I'd think if you have high stats there's something else about your application that is a red flag, and that could be anything from a lackluster personal statement to unenthusiastic letters of rec. So yeah, I guess that Michigan is holistic, but I think its reputation for holistic admissions is overblown in comparison to UVA and Penn. They all do it to some degree.

I don't see the bitching and incredulity you find rampant. If anything, this thread is pretty upbeat given all of the recent news. Everyone knows that Michigan is a bit unique and is not all about the numbers, but the required LSAT/GPA baseline is still pretty high relative to most law schools, even first tier ones.

I am going to try (and probably fail) refraining from checking my statuses during my spring break this week. Hoping that when I get back I'm not staring at Complete.
