Have they contacted all 5 people for the summer start openings by now? I know their WL is unranked so they scramble to find people after the vacancies are made clear. Just wondering how long that actually takes...

So when does Michigan usually start making waitlist offers for the fall start?

I talked to them over the past few days and they said they are still looking. they said fall offers will likely come once they pass the 2nd deposit deadline.

Yeah, i'm debating asking for a deferral, i just doubt it will be granted. anyone on here willing to chat about that? I don't want to clog up this thread when many of you will likely be uninterested in such chatter.

Just got accepted off the waitlist, but forgot to ask which program. I'm fairly sure I specified fall start only since I'm not in the country, so I'm thinking they're already taking people for fall session now. Good luck everyone! I hope to see you in Ann Arbor!

No, I didn't expect to get in anyways/heard they wait until really late in the summer and I knew I couldn't wait that long. Today was a complete surprise.

good catch. having a look at who they are targeting thus far, my below median scores are not looking too good :( thought my MI residency would give me a boost but guess i shouldn't get my hopes up.

It seems like Michigan is looking at GPA- of the three peeps that we know of who have been admitted off the WL all have GPAs of approx. 3.8; their LSAT ranges from 165-170, so maybe their LSAT median is solid.

i hope you're right, if its GPA they're looking at i'll feel a bit better about it as opposed to my LSAT. just hoping and praying those LOCI's, LOR's, and visit will pay off... want this so bad!

I love how Michigan really knows how to have a warm side to their admissions, it's always a pleasure dealing with em

Very true, but nothing beats UVA's weekly updates and WL movements.

hey guys, i made a waitlist spreadsheet in the same style as the UVA and UCLA one. feel free to put in your numbers and info if you'd like - make sure to sign out of your google account to stay anonymous though! think this could be a good reference for us TLSers. - queequeg.

I got off the waitlist earlier this week and was told they were preparing to make more offers soon. Good luck!
