I got the email last week and I have survived the morning's blood bath, for what it's worth.

Also got the email, also a survivor. I'm guessing if you got the email you weren't in this wave one way or the other but I could be wrong.

"Sorry, we've been sitting on your application for the past few months: maybe we need more info, maybe we have questions that will be resolved with the passing of time"

One week later: "We regret to inform you..."

... God, I hope they haven't done this to anybody. Nobody deserves that kind of cruelty.

As far as weekends go, it seems Michigan changes your status but you don't see it until it updates the next days so this person was likely admitted on Friday but it didn't change till Sat.

This is of course speculation on this threads part. But it is obvious Sats are fair game with Michigan but Sundays seem to remain safe :wink:


FWIW, my ASW says my admit packet was mailed on 1/12, which was on Saturday. Not really sure what to take from that, but it does seem to confirm that at least some things happen on Saturday--I just didn't check over the weekend.

Yeah, I was guessing not, but they did say in that email that that sort of thing did happen occasionally. I'm still sitting at complete, fwiw.

I like to hear this. I know you wanted to get out of Michigan but it'd be fun if you were here next year, too.

You guys would be a major pro to going there. You would get to enjoy hearing me bitch about the cold and we could hang out together. :D


Plus, as a non-1L, a good escape from the stress bubble that is your first year.

For those who have gotten the Ding, (I'm sorry and I'll be joining you shortly) when did you apply or go complete?

Has there been anyone who was deferred from ED to RD that has been denied recently?

Word, I got dinged too, which is kind of surprising because I got a WL last year and I definitely didn't think my app was worse this year lol. Ah well.

Sorry to hear, Crow. You have a great LSAT though. You'll kill it somewhere else.

Did anyone who was no-offered from ED get dinged today, or did everyone apply RD?

Are we safe until tomorrow? Has Michigan sent out decisions this late in the day?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure if you've been updated for the day then you have survived.

Oh God... the rejections begin :shock:

I survived today. I guess looking at the Michigan status checker is no longer a safe action...

ETA: I'm very sorry to all those who were rejected.

In light of all the denials today, I'm pulling the goalie and sending in a LOCI/update on my file as a last resort even though I was deferred from ED. I'm definitely gonna get dinged if I don't, so I don't have much to lose. Love me, Michigan.
