Nope - you'll get a letter in the mail in the next week or so telling you that it is for all 3 years. Only requirements are like a 2.0 and actually taking classes.

UGH, classes!? Well there goes that.

Applied: 9/4
Admitted: 11/6
Invited to apply for Darrow: 12/7
Sent Darrow essay: 1/3 (would have sent it earlier but I was out of the country until 1/2)
Received Darrow: 1/10

Up until I got the call yesterday, the ASW reflected zero scholarship for me. Hope that information helps anyone who is curious.


I was pretty much the same in terms of timeline/details.

"Typically, more than half of our applicant pool has numbers that are at or above our median scores for the previous year's incoming class, which is almost three times the number of people we can actually admit."

From Michigan's prospective student website. Is this true? Or is this some weird numbers-juggling with yield that they're doing?

I probably can believe that, depending on what they mean by "numbers" (index, one of both, both lsat/gpa?). Don't forget all the applications/admits who end up going to CCN etc, and consider Michigan a safety/way to get money from their school of choice.

I don't think my numbers are high enough

ETA- someone PM me and correct me if I'm wrong. If lavitz didn't get a Darrow invite I don't see why I would.

Oh, and come to Michigan. :lol:

Thanks. I can't believe I regret my uGPA so much, I worked so hard and was so excited to graduate with honors. HAH TLS has taught me well now.

Unless there's something seriously, seriously wrong with your app (and honestly, they wouldn't have accepted you if there were), I think you'll end up seeing some pretty significant money, so just hang in there. Also, there's a 172, 3.53 on LSN with a Darrow (granted, from HYP). So, I wouldn't count myself completely out if I were you.

Thanks! Deleting now. I just can't pay sticker anywhere :shock: I have confidence in landing good first semester grades but I'm not a pompous idiot. Shit happens, ill be a small fish in a big, smart pond wherever I go.

True. TLS helps since we're all in this together. In real life, I don't know anyone applying to top law schools, which can make this isolating.
