I've read here that it can take some time for scholarship offers to pop up on the website (first time posting in Michigan thread). If you already have some nice offers from other T14 schools, would you contact the admissions office first, or wait to see if anything appears?

I believe I read that the schools subsidizes hotels so they only cost to you $20 per night. No other travel expenses will be reimbursed. (I could be wrong)

Does anyone knows when the need-based financial aid application will be available?

Has the historical waitlist wave of february already occurred?

Whoa, went to my mailbox this afternoon and saw a white envelope stuffed inside. I'm in! Totally did not expect a decision so quickly.

I have a question, though. Neither my online status checker or my admittance letter mentions any scholarship or grant money. Should I presume I'll be paying full sticker?

scholarship info takes a while to show up. if you go back a couple pages on the thread you will see people posting who had scholarship money appear on their Mail & Money after a week or two.

was there an update on your status checker saying you were accepted or did it simply say complete?

My status changed to a note about the admittance letter and the other materials they sent me.

My "last updated" changed to today, but status still says "complete." Nervous waaaaaaiting. I applied at the end of January, though, so I suppose I can't expect a fast turnaround.

I have no response that will save this. I'm bad at noticing things.

No worries! I only responded that way because someone strolls in and asks about that probably every other page of this thread. :wink:

Has the purpose for this interesting function been discussed?

Michigan:

I knew you were out of my league, but I went for it anyway. After some serious courting, you finally gave me a real go. And it's been great. Hey, you've been pretty doting so far -- hand written notes, and tons of presents (aka 8 billion glossy booklets). You've even gone so far as to show me pictures of your family -- all of those smiling youths (potentially just J. Crew models) lounging on your law quad grass in pure splendor.

But, I'm worried. Where's the real commitment? How do I know this is for real? You're keeping your distance, and it's rough, Michigan. Week after week, "zero awards found."

Michigan, please -- go from "zero" to "hero" and save my poor fragile heart.

xo.

ps. I'm not being catfished, am I?

You need to remind me to check the thing every once in a whole because I have given up.

Would it be strange at this point to call them and ask what is going on with a still complete application and just make sure everything is there and nothing was misplaced? I understand that I could just be destined for WL, but this cycle I feel as if my numbers are at least somewhat competitive and i've been complete since November.
