thank you


You would have heard back within 2 weeks if they were going to offer you money. It's not Michigan's practice to negotiate scholarship money once they make the offer, but the exception to this rule is those who are offered nothing yet have money from a peer school. In that case, it's worth attempting to negotiate, but I'm not sure if you'll end up getting anything out of them.


Within 2 weeks? I'm not sure that's true...

Within 2 weeks is the word on the street.


To clarify for smoneill, Michigan generally posts scholarship awards in the mail and money section of the Admitted Students Website around 2 weeks after your status checker switches to acceptance. For me it was closer to 3 weeks. They also send a letter with the scholarship info and I didn't get that till 4-5 weeks after I was accepted. So, if you haven't, check your ASW. If you've already looked there, they probably won't be offering anything. I'd wait to negotiate for another couple weeks, because they sent me an email saying they make scholarship decisions within 6 weeks of acceptance, so if you try to negotiate before that, they may say they haven't finished reviewing you for awards.

-within walking distance to campus
-dishwasher
-washer/dryer in unit
-a non-disgusting bathroom

thanks everyone for the advice (especially you aekea). i'll reach out in a few weeks to see if i can pull a little $ from them. i did check the website and no offers in my inbox...

i'm 99% sure i'll be attending michigan (unless i get in to USC with a big scholly, then i'll think about that for a few min, then attend michigan), so hopefully i can get a little bit of scholly.

<--Current 2L at Michigan.

The school says they don't negotiate scholarships, but they will if you have a competitive one from somewhere else. As with all of these schools, it doesn't hurt to ask. I never asked because my better scholarships were from the likes of USC and UCLA.

Supposedly have a "Dean's Scholarship Award Letter" mailed 2/17 that has STILL not arrived. I will be a disaster until it does.

Congrats.

And remember, there's really no such thing as bad news in a "Dean's Scholarship Award Letter".

You make an excellent point :p

Mich, I love you for giving me any money after I told admissions over the phone that I would attend even if I got nothing.

Usually always update by 9 AM, today I'm stuck on 2/25, though the bottom left says updated 2/27. Probably nothing, but a guy can hope, right?

That would be last Monday, and it was also a holiday. It looked like most people updated by 9:00 a.m. then as well. We know it's probably nothing, but it's fun to hope.
