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.


Updates every day. Don't worry, this happens literally a hundred times per cycle in the Michigan thread.

sorry to hear that. you moved to michigan before getting in?


My partner started a Ph.D. at U of M. We decided here partially b/c of the great law school as well.

Sorry to hear. I have slightly better stats than you so maybe my rejection is still "in the mail" but i am a recent alumni/former V athlete and Michigan resident, so maybe that will give me a lift. Still praying it does. Best of luck on the rest of your cycle!.

@dawnrose, that sucks. I hope it all works out for you two in the end. My partner and I are both applying to grad schools right now and we are hoping to go to the same school - UMich is one of our top choices but neither of us has heard back yet.

For those who have been admitted, how long did it take for financial awards (Dean's scholarship in particular) to appear on the admitted students website?

Thanks

Thoughts?


I'm trying to wait til I receive the housing info in the mail (so far just the letter and the follow-up email). But I'm super antsy about it. I did visit UM last weekend and spoke with an admissions officer who told me that it's best to get it in as soon as possible.

She told me some fun stuff about the renovations, if you're interested. :)

In via status checker! Nothing about money, though, is that information included on the Status Checker or does that information come out later?

1Ls were in a mandatory professionalism meeting when the email got sent, too. So there was a section of students who were just freaking the fuck out.
