I elected fall+summer but I'm already almost 2 years out of school and my boss knows I'm going to law school very soon. The idea that I could be going to law school in almost 3 months is super tantilizing. Please let me in :)

Checking in! Is anyone planning to send a LOCI? I sent 4 LOR along with my application, so sending another one *might* be overkill, but I'm definitely writing a LOCI after I receive LSAT scores from my February retake. Good luck to everyone!

I kind of sent it within the email of being WLed with a reply along with an update to my application materials. How often should I be sending these? Once a week from here on out?

I read that once a month is suggested, lest we look like desperate creeps :?

Checking in as well. Working on some other application stuff, but will try to send in a LOCI by the end of the week at the latest. Anyone know how students who are admitted off the waitlist fair with regard to scholarship money?

I read someone in the regular applicants thread say it's about $15k/yr just from looking through LSN.

No, $15k total. So $5k/yr. Looks like some got ~$22k total.

I found someone with my numbers who got 75k off the WL, but he negotiated for it. I don't think that's a typical outcome, though,

Thx for making this thread. What are thoughts on how much a visit would impact chances? I don't live too far away and was thinking about making a trip over to Ann Arbor when it's not cold AF out.

Just so you guys know, and have a bit of faith, I was below both medians (Umich ug, with 2 years of finance) and was admitted off the waitlist for Class of 2016 - they offered me for 2016, then offered me a deferral to 2017 class if i wanted due to some new events that arose. I ended up going to a T25 b/c of more money being offered, but hold out hope. Send in the LOCIs, i think i was doing it once a month but always with new info - since I was working in finance/consulting i was updating them on new projects/experiences that were pertinent. I also let them know about where i was accepted, what I was thinking, and any offers that were swaying me one way or another - Dean Z eventually called and offered me a spot.

So hold out for it.

Thank you! Do you mind sharing if these were events pertaining to the school or more so pertaining to you? You don't have to get too personal, I'm just curious if they asked you to defer or if they offered it to you.

they were pertaining to me. I had a big client come up at work i really wanted to work on and they offered to defer me so i could work on it. They let me into the Summer Start for 2017 rather than Fall so i could start earlier too. Super accommodating and always second guess if i should have gone with UMich

I sort of wrote one in my email back to admissions regarding my interest, think I should write another? I was told monthly but now you have me worried - however there's only so many ways I can say, "if you accept me, I will attend".

Well, I never did an initial email, just the survey.
