It's high on my list but it's not THE school I'm waiting to hear back from.

It's high on my list, but I can probably be swayed by more money from another school.

Meh... I applied because it's a T14 - we'll see how my cycle goes.

Still feel really unsure. I'll probably visit or go to ASW to get a better feel for the school/location.

Checking in. Michigan is one of my top choices, if for no other reason than I always wanted to go to hogwarts.

I keep getting "session errors" whenever I open up the application :?

It says it's because I have another browser with an application open, which I do not....

same here. just gotta close the browser and open it back up -- usually works for me but sometimes it doesn't, where I'll just continue it later.

Third on this. It always works for me to quit Safari altogether and reopen the application. Annoying as can be, but gotta do what you gotta do.

What's stopping you?/Have you checked to see if your fee was waived?

Havent started requesting fee waivers yet. I was just skeptical about applying because I don't know how well Michigan could place me back in TX.

What's the advantage of summer term? Do you graduate early/meet more hotties or something?

Edit - sounds nice....I guess I'd be good with either a fall or summer start

Applying because of fee waiver and maybe scholarship leverage. Not moving to Michigan, though. :(

Opportunity to graduate in December. Also, idk if you've peeked @ the app yet but you have the option to select either term and can even tell them which term you'd prefer if you select both.

Check to see if your fee is waived on LSAC before requesting a fee waiver. A lot of people on here seem to be getting Michigan waivers. The bottom of the first post tells you how to check (you don't have to complete the app first).

I got a hidden waiver. Checking in. My application is ready, but I may wait to officially transmit it until September 1.
