For those of you who sent a 'Why Michigan' separately, after you sent in your application, did you just email it to law.jd.admissions@umich.edu? Thanks.

The question is what does it really mean? Someone went through the app? Someone just logged into the app to check something? With over 20 apps pending I still don't get what do the changes of the complete date signal, if anything.

If by the grace of God i get into UMich, maybe i will eclipse that students a year or two back who checked it some 200+ times before a decision was rendered.


I think they fixed this loophole after last year, so the status checker should be your first notification of a decision.

My understanding is that it doesn't mean anything. It updates automatically and there is no notification beyond 'complete' until the decision shows up on your status checker.


Congrats on surviving everyone!

Surviving what? Have there been rejections?

Yeah, I thought their was a round of rejections expected, but it was just based on last year.

Yeah my comment was more based on the dings everyone seemed to be expecting based on yesterday's comments, like this one:

I have a feeling tomorrow is my ending.


It wasn't based on rejections that I had heard of today.

Dude.


Sorry!! Didn't mean to be rude - I'm not familiar with the michigan admissions process and was wondering if it was similar to Georgetown's, where you get three updates (normally) before a decision.

My apologies for being an a-grade d-bag.

REJECTED yesterday and got official letter today. Huge bummer, since I moved across the country with my partner here hoping to get in. I've heard in the past some people get rejected with a note urging them to apply again next year...Has anyone else gotten this? Wondering if I should wait a year or accept at a different school (I really, really want Michigan).

From those of you that have been accepted and maybe intend to stay at the Lawyer's Club, have you submitted your application already? I believe its non-binding and while I'm not decided on Michigan a 100% I'm thinking of emailing it in to secure the room of my preference.

Thoughts?

Yeah I'm sorry to hear that, but I don't really get it. The only way you're going to get into Michigan is by retaking the LSAT.
