To make things worse, I have plans to watch Michigan's NCAA Tournament game with multiple michigan UG alums. Not where I want to be right now as I try to contain my bitterness.

Go, but cheer for Tennessee and try to piss the people around you off.

Also WL. Hurt feelings abound.

LSAT = 50, GPA > 75, Why Mich.

Reading this thread has made me feel better - some seriously high-quality applicants are in the same boat. I knew applying late was a risk, but the early/late difference is REALLY STARK ITT. There must be good yield-related reasons why it happens this way, but it always strikes me as inefficient when ppl who help medians are left in the cold because they applied in December or January. There has to be a smarter system?

Damn. I feel very fortunate to have been accepted. Lots of people with better numbers getting waitlisted who applied at about the same time.

Good going, anyway. Also, I chuckle whenever I see your name, bc it reminds me of Ned Yost (a terrible baseball manager) :D

Waitlisted late last night. Ah well, at least they got back to me quicker than Penn (and I applied to Penn two months before Michigan).

Not a good day for the BIG. On Wisconsin, I guess.

I am confused because my date changes every single day including weekends. I have been complete for awhile now so does this mean someone has actually been handling my application every single day or does the computer just do it automatically?

I'm guessing a computer auto-updates it, because the updates happen very early each morning. The adcomms probably enter any changes into a database the computer reads and everyone else's status is "updated" to stay the same as it was the day before.

Okay that's what I was thinking but then some people were saying that they were stuck at certain dates so I thought I would ask people's theories on what is actually happening
