I went complete on 9/13 and nada. tyler.durden went complete the same day (per LSN) and got in this morning. And a lot of admits went complete around mid-October.

So it kinda varies.


Yeah thats right, it seems almost random as to when submitted and numbers, it's been all over the place. I think the only consistency is that that decisions are posted sometime between 0600-0700 EST on Tuesdays.

Thanks! Maybe I can limit my obsessive status checking to early on Tuesday mornings then :)

For what it's worth: I applied last cycle and was WL. I am below both 25th. I reapplied early this cycle with a strong Why Michigan and was accepted last week. So, I obviously strongly support a Why Mich, but as others have said, especially if you need to fill a gap in your application somewhere.

If you have specific questions, just PM me.

Has anyone gotten the acceptance materials in the mail yet? How long did it take you to receive them :)?

Also, you could always email them later with an additional essay if you still think you should write one. On the other hand, if Michigan really is at the top of your list, you should probably be able to write a decent essay.


I'm a little late here, but this is TCR. I submitted my app without the "Why Mich?" and emailed it to the admissions office later. I had the same problem with my essay sounding like I was just regurgitating website info with my first few drafts, but once I had it written the way I wanted it, emailing it in was super easy. Admissions wrote back within an hour or so confirming that they would add it to my file.

I'm just going to hope Michigan follows last week's example and sends out another batch of acceptances tomorrow, to wish us all a very happy thanksgiving. And when that doesn't happen, I'll switch to hoping they'll start a new trend of daily acceptances, so they can just accept all of us already.

I'm going to write one, but I didn't want it to delay submission any longer. I will attach it in a week or two. Will it matter whether I send it before or after my app goes complete?

Nope, I don't think so. I hadn't gotten my status checker yet when I sent mine in, but they told me I was already complete and ready for review when they received my Why Mich. It clearly wasn't a problem since they also said they would add the essay to my file.

3.98, 171, top 25 undergrad, submitted day 1. Still haven't heard of an admission via status checker. Getting worried. Any thoughts?

After observing your behavior today, I believe the reason you haven't been admitted is self-evident.
