In via status checker! Complete/Status Checker email received on 1/8, current status update date says 12 Feb 2013 so check your accounts everyone!

168/4.0 non-URM with 3 yrs WE

Was nervous about this one- girlfriend and her entire family are Michigan alums...

Congrats to all other admits and good luck to those still waiting

In via status checker!!!!!! My first T10 acceptance so I am OVER THE MOON! 170 3.57, submitted 1/8.

Question: My partner of 6 years applied to Michigan for a master's program and hasn't heard back yet. Would it be weird to write his admissions committee a letter saying that I've been accepted to the law school and we would both very much like to attend if he were accepted?

No it would not be weird. Another couple on the Duke thread was in a similar situation, and went and spoke to the ad com. They both got in. Good luck to you and CONGRATS on the acceptance.

Just as a heads up to everyone admitted. My Dean's Scholarship offer got bumped up by 50% this morning. Michigan was already number two on my list, they just made a real push for number one.

Check your e-mail. If you're a summer starter, your scholarship didn't change, they just updated the first year figure to reflect three semesters instead of two. Mine also went from $15,000 to $22,500 this morning, but my actual award amount hasn't changed.

CORRECTION: No more money has been had. It was only an adjustment for summer start.

I haven't heard of that happening in a while. Maybe they're starting to watch their budget a little more closely now that they've put out so many offers.

I remember it happening towards the beginning of the cycle. Like, someone would report an offer and then the next week it would be increased a bit. I don't think it's happened in a while, which is why my heart leapt out of my chest when I thought it increased this morning.

How long did it take after you were admitted for the financial aid award to show up on the admitted students website? Was it instantaneous or did it take a few days?

It can take up to two weeks (or even more - took me over a month).
