Congrats to all the new admits!

Once again, people with later dates and lower numbers are getting in while I hear nothing. This is happening with NYU too. I must have really messed something up something on my app...

Hush. You are going to have a fantastic cycle with those numbers.

These limbo schools can really screw with you. Michigan is ignoring me and Northwestern accepted people yesterday who had worse numbers then me and who applied after I did.

I just want to start planning my ASWs and finally stop shrugging my shoulders when people ask where I am going!

Anyway real question time, did everyone who got the we didn't forget about you email send a LOCI? I didn't cause I thought it would delay my app even more but maybe I should?


I'm in the same situation myself. The cold shoulder is killing me here. I practically gushed at them in the "Why UMich" I wrote for my app, so I thought an LOCI would be unnecessary. Then again, my lack of response might be saying otherwise.



In the same boat as you two but i wrote the LOCI. Had a nice response from admissions saying they appreciate my continued interest. no further contact other than that. here's to dreaming.


Well I guess I am going to write one tonight because as of today people are getting in with worse #'s who applied after I did.

Submitted: 12/7
Completed: 1/7
Accepted(!): 1/23


HOLY SHIT!


Damn bro congrats. I had a similar reaction last year with similar numbers (my gpa was only a bit higher and still below 25th).

From the admits today it looks like Michigan fighting to keep that 169 median, too.

Still can't get over how beautiful this school is. I'm still a bit freaked out by the "cold" but maybe you just get used to it.
Anyone think that Michigan will go back up in the rankings this year?

I hope so. Also just got their faculty book and the cover literally looks straight out of Hogwarts.

I'm a Michigan native and the last two days have been rough on me. You don't ever get used to biting wind.

ETA: And I'm a biological space heater. My mother didn't wear a coat when she carried me, and I was born in spring.

I'm a native (also have terrible circulation) and I am uncomfortable about 6 months out if the year. Yesterday I wore two coats to drive to the gym and still was still cold. It's offensive to me that cold was put in quotation marks.

Buy a space heater. I'm not sure how much is my shoddy circulation and how much is the cold, but if I sit still for too long (studying for four hours) my feet turn a lovely shade of blue during the winter.

But...congrats everyone. The mitten rocks. from late May until Sept

(I really dig that picture of MI though. New cover photo? Perhaps.)

You do have particularly bad circulation though. I'd say November-April is the cold zone, but most of the time it'll warm up some time in March and sometimes isn't cold until mid-November. This year it didn't even get cold until Christmas.

I wasn't meant for this place US. I feel like I'm approaching death when I linger in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. It's cold....too....cold...

Uh oh. I get cold in the refrigerated section. Maybe if Mich tossed a free winter parka and Uggs my way...and a ski mask...

I love Michigan and I'm never moving away if I can help it, but you should fly south or to California. Although barring Stanford I think you're stuck in the cold for your law school career.
