[/quote]You probably sent it already but I addressed it to Dean Zearfoss and sent it to the general admissions email.[/quote]
Yeah, this is exactly what I did. Cool.[/quote]

I didn't send it to Dean Z, just the admissions committee... perhaps I should have...[/quote]
Prob doesn't matter really. Don't fret about it.[/quote]

I addressed it to Dean Z and the Adcom, sent it to the general admissions email although i thought of CC'ing Dean Z as well.

Michigan fast? The Forgotten (aka the Forever Completes) beg to differ...

Although I'm sure you'll be accepted within three weeks :)

So I'm guessing if you get a dean's scholarship offer you are no longer being considered for a Darrow, anyone have conformation on this :?:

Does anyone know if the financial aid info on the admitted students site is updated overnight (like the status checker), or could an offer suddenly pop up in the middle of the day?

ME? I would pass out if I was. Mich was one of my Hail Mary's. Thanks for the slight confidence booster, though! :)

The summer start and the fall start are the same application. At the beginning of the application (but part of the actual application, not an lsac thing), it asks if you would be willing to do the summer start. I'm not sure what the default option is, but if you put down "either" they will put you wherever they need you. The school also discourages people from requesting to switch their semesters unless they have a good reason. If it really is an error on their end, and you only selected fall on your application, you might be okay. Check your application again through lsac if possible.

I would suggest you carefully review your application PDF on LSAC, then call them (rather than email).

Be sure you got your name right (it's probably not "Taco")

I am assuming it is once a day because it has a daily update like the status checker
