^ I don't understand what your graph is seeking to prove.

And the only two other schools that I'm looking at that offer interviews to all applicants are Vanderbilt and NU. Both seem to be more about making sure there's a good "fit" (with NU's strict work experience requirement and Vandy's minuscule class size) and less about YP.

I'd agree with that schools that interview everyone don't seem to be YPing.

And the graph was just a response to the statement that Michigan was the worst YP offender, second only, maybe, to UVA. American seems to be the worst, by far... to the point of absurdity.


Wow, that is ridiculous...

At least to me, it came across more as saying that schools that interview do so because they are inferior to other schools, and the interview process is basically a way of enhancing yield protection for schools that don't have elite status.


Possibly. I thought it was the "but we can see why other schools do it" to counter the above "interviewing applicants is stupid" paragraph above it.

Any frustration I have with the UM status checker taking so long is assuaged by the fact that I'm already complete :) 11 days between received and complete for those curious.

Random, but I was looking at c/o 2015 stats and noticed that the M/F breakdown was 58/42. Crazy!

Checking in. Not a n00b, but a n00b name. Didn't want my legacy from LSAT board migrating. Applying ED shortly, very pessimistic about my chances (3.27, 169, in-state (not that it matters)). But we'll see. Both my parents went to UM and I didn't get in for undergrad out of HS either, so figured I'd give it a shot. That whole GPA thing, ugh.

If you mean the "last updated" field, yes, it changes almost every day to indicate that the status checker is up to date.

Any thoughts on when the first batch of decisions will come out? Last year, it was the first week of November but applications also opened earlier this cycle...

Same. Maybe a decision in the coming week or two?

I think this happens every day.


I believe you are correct.
