about 75% offers for the class have been made typically at this point in the cycle for Michigan (per Dean Z). However, they are true to form on fee waivers -- and you probably have really good shot of getting in if they sent you one (I got one and was accepted pretty quickly back in Nov and our stats are similar).

Ok. here is why I said this. .this is from Dean Z:

When to Apply:

As admissions are rolling, applicants are encouraged to “apply as early as you can submit a good, careful application,“ Dean Zearfoss said. “For Michigan, I would consider anyone who submits prior to mid-December as being ‘early’ in the process. In contrast, people who submit in late January and beyond are submitting at the tail end, when we have made about 75% of our decisions, and seats are becoming more scarce.”

I'm sure this was true a couple years ago, but I just can't fathom it being the case for this cycle with applications being down so much.

hopefully true.. maybe we are going to see more waitlists as schools figure out how the decreased applications plays out for them & then maybe more folks will get off the waitlists this year.. It promises to be a weird ride regardless.

Submitted at the end of October with nothing other than the "We haven't forgotten about you" email. Now that I've seen the 75% statistic (even if it's outdated), I've given up all hope.

I submitted at the beginning of November and I didn't even get the "we haven't forgotten about you" email.

I guess they have forgotten about me.

They're talking about apps SUBMITTED (not complete) in LATE January or FEBRUARY (not the beginning of January). Jesus Christ. Of COURSE the majority of decisions are made before late January or February applicants are looked at. This is nothing we didn't already know.

does Michigan ever update status checker from "Complete" to a decision mid-day? For some reason I really thought I'd hear back this week.. ;/
