If it is critical to submit one, should I just write one up and send it in? My numbers are borderline.


IMO a "Why?" essay is the strongest supplementary essay you can write-- if done correctly

I didn't, FWIW. Nor did I do any supplemental essays. I was accepted at the beginning of November.

ETA: fixed overly-whiny tone, edited grammar

Just checked my ASW page and saw that I got a Dean's Scholarship as well! Feel free to PM if you're interested in the amount.

Does anyone what award year means next to the Dean's Scholarship? Because if it's per year, why does mine say 2015?

It said that last year too (well, it said 2014). It's definitely per year.

so if it says that you get like 20 k for next year, does that mean that you get 60 k total? this might sound dumb, but i dont understand is it per year or just the total.


Also, it says tentative?? do we know of anybody whose amount has changed from it?

I would say it's "tentative" simply because they reserve the right to rescind the offer any time or will rescind it after the enrollment deposit deadline.

Don't they only allow two supplemental essays?


Hmm, good catch. They only want 1-2 optional essays. I guess it would be best if the OP can include some 'Why UM' statements in one of the other essays, then.

In via status checker this morning! That was a nice Christmas Eve surprise. Not to get anyone's hopes up, but it is worth a look since they apparently made some decisions yesterday. I almost didn't bother checking. For the record, I'm a splitter who applied in early November.

It is scary to me how similar we are!

I love the office, as well. I'm concerned we may have been seperated at birth.

Okay you're officially invited :). When all our decisions are back we'll figure out the school we all have most in common and get something together.

I really have liked Michigan every step in this process. And releasing the Christmas Eve decisions is another nice touch.

They really are good at the whole "we're humans, we have a personal touch" thing.
