I found out 8 days after receiving the status checker though I'd been complete for more like 2 weeks.

How do you know when you were complete if you didn't have the status checker?


Like livefromannarbor I was a umich undergrad. They keep your student id the same. Possibly forever actually, my mom was a umich undergrad back in the Jurassic period and is taking classes again with the same id.

And congrats to everyone who just heard!! I'm also an ann arbor native and happy to answer any questions.

Actually, if you guys are looking for a feel of what goes on around campus, poke around on michigandaily.com which is the student publication. It's fairly well-written (And actually considered more reliable than the Ann Arbor paper as a journalistic source sadly enough) and might be fun to satisfy those constant urges to obsess ;)

Checking in. Should have my app in later this week, still need to polish my PS and write a "Why M". My GPA is well below 25th (above 3.0 though), but I got a one-take 174 so I'm really hoping they need to stretch for the high LSATs this cycle. Michigan is my top choice right now.

Same here (on both the message and the tears parts)! The flash drive is pretty cool, and personalized notes are always awesome. :)

Sooooooo, I'm an idiot.

I'm applying for Michigan residency on account of my military status. Several weeks ago, I got a letter saying it was granted, but that they needed a couple documents to confirm. I said, "Great, I'll just send those right in once they accept or reject me."
After checking my status daily for way too long, I went back and re-read my letter. It actually said they needed those documents to confirm my status AND to finalize acceptance of my application.
So, I sent it in, and I guess I'll hear from them relatively shortly. But if anyone else is in my shoes and has some residency issue unsettled, you might want to clear that up before just going crazy checking your status.

In related news, I'm in. I haven't been checking the last couple days, but we only sent the residency documents yesterday, so I'm guessing I was wrong about that.

IN via status checker with that same long message! So happy I have been keeping up with this because that status checker lingo really made me think I was still dreaming!

Same dates as poster above! SO EXCITED!
