I've missed the last few pages of this thread, sounds like a bunch of acceptances, so first off, congratulations! I know it's early, but does it seem like 3.1/169 /2 years WE would even be worth a shot? I know schools are looking for the higher LSAT, but I assumed the GPA would make it not worth it for Michigan.

I think the predicted unpredictability of this cycle warrants a copious amount of hail mary apps. Although I remember you saying something about being a free lance boxer a couple months ago? So I'm assuming that would add to your 2 years of WE? :lol: Either way, air it out, bro.

Very funny :oops:

Someone's paying for my last couple apps, so I figure it's worth a shot. Michigan would be great.

In this morning! It's been a long two months since I sent in my app, so I'm very happy for the great news.

Congrats to everyone on their acceptances and scholarship offers!

Low GPA+CF issues+late-ish app doesn't really seem worth it to me. Then again it's only money and if you would really like to attend (albeit most likely at sticker) then why not apply?

I have some financial support from family (apps and tuition), so I figure I'll give it a shot. More than likely going to be dinged.

So after your status checker updates to the current day, and you're still sitting at complete, that means that it won't change for the rest of the day, right?

Does anyone know about how long after acceptance they got the envelope? Does it go in the mail the same day-ish?

It's pretty fast. Went out the day after the status update for me, and I had it 2 or 3 days later

Very clever, UM. Send me an email about something completely random. Well done.

Just got an email from Dean Z. Thought it was an acceptance. Turns out it was a notification for their second "Twitter chat Q&A".

Question: @UMichLaw, do you enjoy giving me heart attacks?

What makes these admissions chats worthless (and I've gotten invites for several) is that the questions are pre-screened. You just can't ask anything useful or follow-up if they start BSing you. There needs to be a live unmoderated chat so we can get some straight answers about employment. Not that you can really expect anything straight from Dean Z
