From the Waitlist FAQ site:

We are in the process of finalizing our fall enrollment. We anticipate making a select number of admits within the next two weeks, from among the small and very well-qualified remaining pool. We will be releasing a number of applicants on Friday, July 13, including those who have previously indicated that they did not wish to remain under waitlist consideration past mid-July. As always, we appreciate your continued patience.
If you have any questions or concerns we can address, please feel free to send us an email at law.jd.admissions@umich.edu, or call our office at 734.764.0537.

Thank you.



Did anyone - especially if you did not note mid-July as your deadline - get a release today?

I didn't and am very much getting my hopes up...probably for no reason.

I survived, too. Man, I didn't even notice that change in the FAQ! My obsessive edge must be slipping. It's probably the crushing hopelessness of it all.

Sooooo... Roll call! At this point, who's in and who's out? I, at least, will be here in purgatory until U of M shoves me out (one direction or the other).

I'm still waitlisted as well. I wonder if they really did cut people on Friday or if they haven't quite gotten around to it yet...

Sorry to hear that! Shit, so I guess our celebration for surviving the cut was premature :shock:

Sorry to hear that... :(

How were you notified? And did your online status change?

And most importantly, did you indicate that you wouldn't be interested after mid-July or are they cutting you while you're still in your window of interest?

Man that makes me nervous....

Sorry, I should have been clearer. Per a previous notification I told them that I likely wouldn't be able to continue past mid-July, and I was actually going to withdraw today, but they kicked me off before giving me the chance to do so. Has to do with the other people in my life - what commitments they're making on my behalf and the deadlines associated with that.

Still, best of luck to everyone on the Waitlist, I hope my loss is your gain.

Hello People,

I was initially slated to go to U of M, but now I am enrolling at NYU. Because of this, I will officially withdraw on Monday, hopefully a spot will open up for one of you. I am looking to unload my lease that I signed in Ann Arbor. It was a wonderful apartment with 5 other really cool grad students...1 other 1L. It was very reasonable priced and <10 minute walk to the Law School. If anyone wants to get information about this lease and help me out or knows someone who is looking for a place in Ann Arbor please private Message me or email the landlord mentioning you were interested. Goodluck to everybody!

the email is 828greeneapts@comcast.net

THank you in advance if anyone helps me out with this! Once again I wish you all continued luck.

Hello, everyone. I've got an open spot in an amazing 6 bdrm house that I'm trying to fill. The current tenants are all 1Ls (one is a summer starter). The house is within walking distance to the law school and was recently renovated with granite and new floors. It's fully furnished and each bedroom comes with its own plasma tv. PM me for further details!

Same situation here - I am withdrawing to head to Chicago, and was also going to live in the house. The house is AMAZING and the people in it are even better. Feel free to PM me (or Killingly) with questions.

I don't know whether I am the only one..
I received an interest call on Tue. But haven't heard back since.
I was trying to find a case where an interest call is not followed by an offer...but found none (self-selection bias?).
Anyway, I am just being curious.

Don't give up. It's a pretty safe bet to say admissions is making more offers soon.

It seems to take around three to four business days for the admissions office to follow up an interest call with an offer. I was in your same shoes several weeks back--I got an interest call on a thursday and an offer the following tuesday. Congrats!

My guess is tomorrow as well.
Quoting from the waitlist faq:
"We anticipate making a select number of admits within the next two weeks, from among the small and very well-qualified remaining pool. We will be releasing a number of applicants on Friday, July 13, including those who have previously indicated that they did not wish to remain under waitlist consideration past mid-July. "

The update should be posted prior to July 13, and two weeks from the post date would make it this Friday.
Hope everyone who has received the interest call will get the good news pretty soon!!

Not looking good--for today at least. Think they interviewed everyone left on the waitlist just in case?
