I have yet to get one either and I am trying not to freak out because maybe they are sending them out in batches, but the longer this process goes on, the more difficult I am finding it to stay rational :roll:

One of the things they suggest doing is sending in any additional updates to your app- however I sent a LOCI about 3 days ago. I hope not sending somethings in response to this will not be seen negatively...


I didn't get this email and I've been complete for months and months. Whiteycakes, did you get this email?

What the what Michigan???

I wouldn't worry too much if you haven't gotten the email, from the blog:

The people receiving the email all have in common two things: they applied before a particular date (which changes every year, depending on how quickly we get applications processed), and as of the morning we send the email, they have not gotten, or been slated for, a final decision.

I know I applied very early, so maybe you were just after the cut-off?

Just saw mine in the inbox, initially freaked out thinking it was some type of decision but just tells me to sit tight and send in anything new which may have presented itself - will do so this weekend. Although, i also saw a surprising part being the residency form. I am a Michigan resident, but i work for a company based out of state and i commute 2x a month for work. So now i need to hurry and get this form done as well. I went through this for UG bc for some reason they saw the fact i was born out of state not being a resident.

Oh that e-mail has started going out? I wondered when that would be. Basically if they've had you on hold for ages, they'll send you that e-mail to let you know they haven't forgotten you. It doesn't mean very much from what I've been able to glean.

What about ED'ers who were No Decisioned. Do they ever get it? Does this mean I'm going to be rejected soon since I didn't get it?!

Any thoughts re: when the cut-off date was? I submitted 10/8 and didn't receive an email.

ISWYDT, but lolno. If you were rolled over to RD, they probably consider that a recent enough notice that you're still in the running. This e-mail is slated for RD folks who applied before some cutoff that varies each year and have been sitting around for months with nothing but a never-changing status checker.

Must have been before that, then. Maybe late September?

Complete on 10/16 and just got the email. Found it pretty strange...if you're going to email me apologizing for not reaching a decision yet, why not just send me a decision?

Michigan wouldn't be Michigan without its glacial decision-making pace. (For some of us, anyway. And a disproportionate number of OUR PEOPLE in particular. Sounds fishy...)

I'm a reapplicant and didn't get the email last year either. I don't want to be an alarmist but I remember that not getting the email was pretty bad news.

Well, Michigan's admissions process is no stranger to lawsuits ;)

Thank you for telling me my waiting is not going unnoticed. Michigan continues to rock the admissions process.

I received the same email. Submitted in early October, but app wasn't complete (waiting on a LOR) until early November.

I live in Ann Arbor, I'd describe most of the last few months as "balmy"

Yeah there was ice on my car this morning but even that happens less than half the time. I have seen some pretty crazy winters in the few years I've lived here but there's been literally one major snowfall so far this year

I haven't seen a single snowflake this season (in Philly, but still.)

Yeah, I kind of miss winter. I think the weather gods are just trying to make my last year in Miami feel like one long summer.
