Checking in. Dean Z's letter sealed it for me. It was just a little touch but it made all the difference.

At least submit a Why Michigan? essay.

Checking in. Just sent in my app yesterday! I like the graphs posted. Michigan has one of the more interesting spread on its Application Dates graph than any of the other schools I've seen yet.

Hey guys,
Just got an email from admissions about our entering class data. I remember anticipating this last year, so I figured I would let you know. Class size: 345, LSAT: 169 (same), GPA: 3.73 (dropped .03). I figured you guys might find this useful (or maybe not...since not much really changed median-wise).

Has anyone received their Michican ID and other login info to track the app status? I got an e-mail after I applied that I would be getting it soon, but I haven't yet.

I got the same email acknowledging receipt of my application, and I think it says there that it can take anywhere from about a week (typical) up to six (!) to get the ID and other info. So it looks like we could be in for a wait.

That's the story of our lives for the next several months. I kinda wish I were okay with potentially paying sticker so I could just ED already.

Yeah, I did their ED, and I wish they used Virginia's two-week-guaranteed-response program -- I'll be waiting at least until November, based on what I've seen in LSN.

Checking into my #1. I have some "hail marys" on the side, but saying Michigan would be a dream come true would be an understatement.

Kind of my feelings of late. Aside from Berkeley>CCN, Michigan's probably my top choice.


Same boat

Just got a second packet in the mail from Michigan- the first was the one with the fee waiver letter, this one is a thick one that has "100+" on the front. Lists a lot of cool things about Michigan. Anyone else get this? I've been pretty impressed with this school so far.

Yes, I got that as well. Michigan is DEFINITELY bringing it with the correspondence.

I really missed out by unsubscribing from CRS. Oops.

Nope. Last week, they said I'd get it in about a week.

Checking in! I'm much more enthusiastic about Michigan now than I was before I got the letter and 100+ packet. It seems like an incredible place.
