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...

Quick, everyone get an SUV! We're almost there!

:lol: Sorry for terrifying. It is freaking freezing and when you ask people who live here why they do so, you usually get a laugh and "I don't know", but your experience will be mitigated by the fact that it's only three years. Also keep in mind that I'm a little bitch about the cold and my spirit animal is probably a housecat (I too am known for laying wherever there's warmth - heater, patch of sun...whatever)

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.
I got into Duke 8) But Michigan gave me money.

The jury is still out on who my spirit animal is. I got into Berk and UCLA, but Michigan gave me money, so same gif applies.

BOALT vs Michigan is a pretty common thing on TLS. I would give advice, but I'm heavily biased against California.

I feel like the only person in this thread who wants to go to Michigan for the cold, nasty, greyness and five feet of snow a year. But then, I'm in Denver, and winter means skiing here, not interminable rainy sadness.

I thought someone said earlier in the thread that it updates every day whether someone has looked at your file or not. For example my date has been changing every day even though I'm still Incomplete.

I'm with you. Also in Denver and not too worried about the weather in A2.

Speaking of snow and skiing/snowboarding, did you see this? Mt. Brighton is now owned by Epic/Vail Resorts and is only 30 minutes or so from Ann Arbor. :D

Edit: Though I am enjoying this 60 degree stretch in late January.

Ha, yes. But speaking of skiing in Michigan, have you seen this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zf9VXkCpRjk? I... I don't even know where to begin.

I also sent an updated transcript at the beginning of the month. Sent a LOCI this week. I don't care how long it takes, just take me, Michigan. Btw, submitted in friggin' October.

I put on my app yesterday, got a fee waiver via usps, they sent me the whole package. Personalized note plus two brochuers...at a 168/3.9. I keep asking myself why at this late date? Are they having trouble getting the canidates they want? What % of the class have they admitted?

I had a conversation with one of the Admissions officers a few weeks back to discuss my interest in Michigan and whatnot and I asked - they said NO you will NOT be bumped to the back, they'll just add the updated info to your file and it would only cause any sort of delay if the review process has begun for you and anything re-evaluative-worthy comes in (yes that's a word now)

Waiting for some Michigan love...
