Just for you, I went through last year's thread to check. First of all, I'd like to say: come on, guys--the Michigan thread was at 75 pages by this time last year
Second, here are some choice quotes from early December one year ago:
Sorry y'all. I didn't mean to confuse anyone. I did not receive an initial merit offer. I just got accepted a week ago so I assumed that they were just taking a reasonable amount of time to assess merit-based money. Then I got the Darrow invite today via email. I was just concerned that if the whole Darrow thing doesn't work out-- which, let's be honest, it probably won't--I might not end up with scholarship money. So I was hoping that someone with experience on this matter might be able to clear that up...
Long-time lurker here, just writing to say I’M IN!!! Found out by checking my email early this morning and seeing a Darrow invite.
Was absolutely thrilled but also a little confused! I didn’t receive my admit packet until later today and didn’t realize the ASW could update on weekends.
To those with Darrow invites - does it show up in the Mail area too or did you just get an email? Please tell me that it shows up in the Mail too.
I'm pretty sure it's just an email. I never received anything in the mail, and the communications isn't shown under the "admissions communications" section of Mail and Money.
The deadline in the email said January 3rd, but Dean Z said that applicants could ask for and receive an extension because it's a crazy time of year.
I got the invite about a week after I was admitted via ASW. But I think it was a longer wait for some people who submitted in Sep/early Oct.
So the invitations to apply do start now, even if the final decisions aren't made until later; the invites were made via e-mail last year and did not show up on the ASW; and it was apparently possible to get one along with the acceptance. Unfortunately (for me), I can't find anyone who received an initial award before receiving the Darrow invite (then again, it's a long thread lol).
Also discovered that my page says 2014 because the award always goes by the year it ends in for no apparent reason.
