Yes. It updates every day on Complete. Probably to keep TLSers from blatant speculation.

In other news: I got in today via status checker, so maybe others got in also during a wave today? good luck everyone.

Edit: Submitted 10/24


congrats! when did you go complete?

Thanks! I'm not positive. I think I got my status checker 10/29 and went complete the same day.

Has anyone who was accepted after the 12/1 scholarship batch received awards? Or does anyone know if they'll continue to send them out in batches in the future? I'm a little lost as to how long I should be expecting to wait before I hear if I received anything.

I plan on reading through last year's thread to see how it played out last cycle, but that thing is a beast.

[edit] And I'm reading that normally 22.5k/year is the maximum scholarship other than the full-tuition. Anyone have any guesses/opinions about whether they might increase that amount given that UVA is totally pulling an Oprah right now ("And you got a sholly, and you get a scholly, and you...")?

Anyone have an idea when all of the ED decisions will go out? Do you think this will actually be on Dec 15 (Saturday)?

I dont think they'll increase the maximum amount. But they will probably be more generous.

Michigan is doling out more cash this year: a 4.0/180 reported receiving $40,000/year, and a 3.83/178 reported receiving $30,000/year.

Wow I stand corrected. That 4.0/180 should be getting 100,000 a year tho, just because :shock:

My heart has been racing since I accessed my status checker. If I had gotten a call about it, I would have been at a total loss for words so finding out about acceptances this way spares me from the embarrassment. I'm thrilled beyond belief!

No Darrow invite, but I did get Michigan's admissions packet in the mail today! Comes with a flash drive that has a really informative 20-minute video on the school, and also with a portfolio to keep all the stuff in. Good stuff all around.

Does anyone know how possible it is to negotiate money with umich? I know UVA has been throwing a lot of scholarship money at candidates, would someone with an offer from UVA be able to negotiate for $$$ at Michigan?

When do admitted applicants usually receive scholly information? When should I give up any hope of receiving some money?
