I sent in a Why Michigan after my initial application as well. I just sent it to the general admissions email as a Word attachment. They got back to me saying they'd add it to my file within a couple of hours.

I sent the email asking where to send the essay about an hour ago and no response, plus I said "I am current applicant". I'm pretty sure they're not only rejecting me right now, but are also requesting I have my testicles surgically removed.

:lol: It took a couple of hours for them to get back to my email in November when there were fewer applicants, so I'd maybe wait a few hours before scheduling that appointment with the testicle removal specialist.

I sent one also to the general admissions and they just got back to me saying it was added. If you don't hear anything today send it again tomorrow already attached and just tell them "Please add the attached to my application..."

They are busy but working late nights at the admissions office. I sent them an email yesterday morning and they responded at 8:00 p.m. last night. (CST).

Anyway, I'm done checking the status checker. I like you a lot Michigan but its almost February and I need to start focusing on the schools that have actually accepted me. And if you are just going to ding or WL us then please show some mercy and do it soon.


Hate to say it, because Michigan is awesome and I'd love to hear back, but I'm starting to agree with Zuck here re admissions. I don't understand what I could have done wrong on this application vis a vis the others (I even wrote a why michigan), but now it's time to move to the next phase of this cycle and decide between my other options.. I will not be checking the status checker anymore either. I'll still be thrilled to get an acceptance... but when it comes to the daily updates, I'm over it.

These posts are making me sad :( Hang in there guys, we want you at Michigan! I'm hoping you get accepted really soon :)

Yeah, I feel the same way. I went complete at the end of September and have spent months seeing people with numbers at or below mine getting accepted.

At this point, I'm fine with he fact that Michigan may not want me but just get it over with at least.

I believe it's double-spaced--and I didn't title mine, but I wrote it as an optional essay, not a LOCI. And because I'm a sans-serif kinda guy, I went with Calibri. Pretty sure you'll be okay with whatever isn't Papyrus, Comic Sans or Wingdings.


Yeah I'm going with Calibri too. And double spaced is what I went with, my bad. I'm calling it a Why Micigan essay, because that's basically what is, it just serves the LOCI function since it's late in the process. Do I just send it as an attachment to admissions?


Ever since I saw a documentary on it, I've been a Helvetica man. So pleasing to the eye...

equally frustrated by the waiting game :(
Got the weird email and then SILENCE along side COMPLETE


If accepted, does the notification strictly appear on status checker, or is it possible we strictly find out snail mail?

Same. I called for the address and it's the one listed on their contacts page. The lady on the phone was super nice.

Looking at last year's timeline for decisions, we could be seeing some acceptances the next couple days.

Do they usually give answers to summer starters sooner than later? I didn't see any gurenteed decision date like what NU is doing with the AJD (that is if they honor their own deadline which is tomorrow)

What does it mean when the status doesn't change in the morning?
