As a Philosophy major, I approve of this sentiment and would like to partake in this circle of friendship.

But yeah, we probably won't hear anything until the end of the week or the beginning of next week. Here's the thing though: they've been calling to gauge interest BEFORE extending any offers. I highly doubt they extend any offers to anyone unless the applicant responded that they'd accept the offer. I feel like those that are extended the offer have already indicated that they will accept the offer. So in my mind 10 offers = 10 spots filled. =\[/quote]

Hooray, I'm a Philosophy major, too! Welcome to the circle. And yes, they've been calling to gauge interest, but I don't think the interest level they're looking for is "Definitely, yes." It's probably more like "Yes, U of M is one of my tops." I'm sure a lot of people they called had offers elsewhere as well and will have to think about it. I wouldn't be surprised if at least one said no.

Of course, even taking that into account, my hopes aren't high that I'll be getting a call at this point, either. :/[/quote]

Phil majors everywhere! I'll be a fellow certified metaphysician in 48 hours or so. 8) Joining the philosopher's club.[/quote]

I love it. Also, I looked up "The Philosophers' Club" to see if it was a thing (I worry about copyright infringement, you know), and I don't know which of these I'm more amused by:

In other news, this is the 100th post in this forum! Yay! I love killing time while waiting for life-altering news![/quote]

hyakku: Did you get a PhD or just an MPhil?

I'm a classics and philosophy specialist. Would be nice if we all ended up at Mich! Any of you look at Frier's Roman Law course? Probably one of the major reasons I'd choose Mich is to work with that guy. He's top notch in his field.

Regarding the wait list, here and at my other 5 schools, I've adopted a true stoic's stance. I recommend it to any and all for sound mind.

I got a call last week on Thursday and was offered a seat in the Summer Start class (which I accepted Friday). I wasn't able to post until now as I've been crazy busy trying to manage a cross-country move on a few weeks notice. Anyways, I hope this contributes to CONSTRUCTIVE speculation.

IN! So excited! I just need to work some numbers, but I'd love to go. I did decline the Summer Start offer--that's a bit too hectic for me! Good luck to everyone else waiting!

Ah, and I got trolled too, hyakku! Twice! I've been playing phone tag with the office since Friday, lol.

Congrats to the admits!! I bet you guys are thrilled. I also sent in a heavy summer start focused LOCI awhile ago, so let's hope they have a couple more spots opening up for it!! Sounds like if you declined Moriarty perhaps they'll call someone else!

Chins up all!

Taking a tour and visiting the office tomorrow = begging and pleaing for them to let me in!!!

Obviously I'm exaggerating and will remain composed and dignified.. I'm not really sure what to expect from this visit though..

Anyone else visited/met w Admissions staff???

Be sure to let us know how your tour went. Personally I'd love to hear about it bc I haven't seen the campus yet. Are you taking pictures?

So jadore, does that mean you haven't gotten a formal offer yet? Have fun visiting campus! Definitely let us know how it goes and if you learn anything!

Can any of you folks who have been offered admission from the WL speak to how long you have to make your decision? 1 week? More? Less?

Just curious.

Yeah I just saw your other thread regarding Duke. Tough choice. That's a lot of money. Well, the rest of us shall keep our fingers crossed. Congrats on the options!

I deposited in April and was looking forward to coming to Michigan, but I just got in off NYU's waitlist - so hopefully that frees up a spot for one of you!

Cartman - my decision was between Vanderbilt and Mich; I decided to go with Mich. I do, however, hope that more spots will be opened as waitlists begin to shift--and that you get one of those spots.

GL to all!
