I submitted late on 12/21, application incomplete as of today. How long did it take generally for your applications to go complete? I know the holidays probably screwed with my timeline.

Congrats to all the admits today! What was your complete --> admission avg wait time?

Thanks!

Mine was about four months. I expect yours will be a fraction as long.

Also, it says "Award Year" 2014. Do other admits' say this as well? I guess I would have expected it to say 2013 since that's when we'll start but I am probably overanalyzing... I assume the $ would start our first semester not wait til 2014?


So I know this might not be truly michigan thread material, but do you know any other schools that have scholarship information on an ASW? I've had a few acceptances with no scholarship information, but I haven't gone looking online for it... and UCLA and Minnesota sent it to me in the mail and told me over the phone anyway.

Thanks!

I've also been really curious about this.

Always in the morning. If nothing has changed before lunch, nothing will.

IN VIA STATUS CHECKER! This is the first decision I've received and I could not be happier.... You see, I never in a million years believed that a top law school would give me a chance. I was suspended from school for a year, had horrible grades after that because I was on chemo for Hep-C, and in general I just have a shady shady past. To those of you out there with questionable pasts, don't give up! Be honest with your story, believe in yourself, and always be grateful for what you have. I am so humbled and so proud :) Can't wait to see what other decisions start rolling in! YAY!

Also in via status checker. I had semi sworn-off the checkers for my own sanity, but this thread made me peek. Glad I did. :)

Dean Zearfoss was 100% responsive and even went to the effort of getting with their career center to pull some data about the difference between the two.

In case anyone wants to read up on the results of the data she pulled:

I just read that in my RSS feeder and I immediately suspected that you were the student. Congratulations on improving the availability of good data! Dean Z. does seem pretty great.

Its nice she is so responsive but without a more detailed breakdown including school-funded jobs, FT/PT work, size of firm, that data isn't useful at all.
