UMich, did I read correctly on another thread that you are not attending next summer?

If you don't mind sharing, what was the process like for requesting deferred admission? I would think you have to present a compelling reason, but maybe it is more lax than I am imagining?

Got a voicemail today saying they had some "quick questions about my application," I can't fathom this would be anything other than a soft acceptance gauging interest right?

Sounds like they're definitely gauging interest

Apparently they have, or are getting ready to release a bunch of people from the WL. Just an FYI.

Not asking you to disclose, but is this based on a source?

Couldn't justify paying sticker so I told them I wouldn't take a spot if offered. Never thought I'd turn down Michigan, but I just can't see it being worth ~$140k more than UT.

Since I got the call yesterday I had been contemplating and making sure that I could give an honest answer when they would ask me if I'd attend if accepted. I then got a follow-up email an hour ago essentially just asking the same question (while being clear that they weren't officially offering admission yet). I just replied to that and told them I couldn't swing it financially. I would think that if any of you get one of these calls and can commit to attend that they'll accept you honestly.

Well I just got a reply saying that I actually could receive merit aid if they offered me a spot. This could change things. FWIW he said they have 2 WL offers outstanding ATM and couldn't offer me a spot until they hear back.

They updated website at end of last week...

I just hope the offers come sooner rather than later. We are really going down to the wire now.

Just declined a spot that Dean Zearfoss offered on Friday afternoon. Sounded to me like there will be more activity this week. PM if you want details. GL to all.

So, have they offered it to you? Did you get any $$?

ETA: I feel like I am watching some kind of TV drama unfold. I have to know what happens next.

Kicked off the waiting list a few days ago. Oh well. Good luck to all who are still hoping for a spot.

Anyone have anything new and interesting to report?

Any idea how many days they are giving people to mull over these offers?

Just declined a spot and small scholarship. I'm guessing another spot will being opened up. Good luck!
