Yea: 30k --> 75k. I had finally made peace with my decision to attend UCLA... Now I'm confused, but this is all good. Not sure what I'll do. They extended my deadline to Friday.

Is it normal for M to be chasing after students like this? "hey! I'm withdrawing" response - "hey! here we'll give you an additional 60k"

Dear Michigan: if you are so desperate for solid applicants that you feel the need to throw more money at people who have turned you down, how about you take a look at your waitlist and give a few splitters and/or late applicants some love?

I withdrew today (with 54K) and they just gave me the standard "Good luck with your future endeavors" response. Didn't try to keep me by dangling that carrot. Found it interesting, maybe it's because I only have median numbers? Or because I already asked for more money? Oh well.

I think it makes perfect sense. It's a way for them to avoid wasting money on people who might choose Michigan at sticker or for a lowballed scholarship offer. I'm sure many admits got duped and took the sticker/close to sticker offer thinking they just weren't good enough for money, or more money. Those of us who balked, Michigan then opened its wallet for. They profit from holding back until we balk.

The last bit explained that it was OK to have multiple deposits, and they would contact you to see what they needed to do to make Michigan your choice if you had multiple deposits at the beginning of Summer. I'm toying with submitting some other deposits just to see if I can work out an extra bit of scholarship money. Plus, there's a little bit of utility in preserving the choice. Stupid idea?


If the $200 or $300 isn't an issue today, I don't see how it could. For that small sum, if it could save you thousands, easily worth it. Also, if you aren't completely set on Michigan at the current price - having the choice is well worth it.

I hope Dean Z knows that I will gladly accept admission off the WL. My body is ready.

Eta: I mean, I'm not disputing that, just curious as to what your reasoning is?

Withdrawing (for good) with $75k. Best of luck to everyone on the WL. Michigan is an amazing school - but I just can't imagine spending another 3 years in this state. I've lived here my entire life and it's time to GTFO!

Nope but I got an email asking to tell them if they could do anything to change my mind. Felt a little like a form letter though. Phone call's pretty sick - what'd they say? PS - congrats on getting your dream school to pull through with the money!
