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.

Really just plan on using it for scholarship negotiation purposes.

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

Anyone got any further on this, as far as what class size expansion means?

given the uptick in 165+ scorers, they were probably able to "go back to normal." the 267 class size last year was really small for them -- http://www.lstscorereports.com/schools/michigan/. as you can see, historically, they usually had a class size of at least 315.

Oh so more people are applying and thus people around median/splitters are probably a tad less likely to get in? Wonderful :? (30 year old splitter).

well not necessarily. it seems like UMich responded by increasing their class size, so that would offset the increase in apps (assuming they didn't have a higher than expected yield).

Also got a packet in the mail. Liked that it had a little note that was specific to me. Wasn't really sure how I felt about U Mich because I'm kind of over the whole college town thing after being at UNC for undergrad but, can't lie, that 100+ reasons booklet (or whatever you want to call it) kind of sold me on the school lol.


I agree. Also, there is a specific note to each of us? From what it looks like, it's just a normal letter that happens to have our name on it, which of course can be done quickly in Word or professional mailing programs. Either way, the school looks like Hogwarts.


I guess not to each of us. Something was handwritten on my note.

Pretty jealous of all this handwritten note talk. Mine was just hand-signed.

Has anybody who has applied to Mich not yet received a confirmation email from them? I applied early last week and haven't heard from them :(

It took me like two weeks to get a status checker email. I applied August 23rd, the first day apps were open, and my application still hasn't even gone complete yet.

Oh really? I guess they're slower than others... At least that gives me a relief. Thanks for letting me know! :)

Just got an email from Michigan that some sort of computer error occurred and caused me not to get the status checker email. Apologized and said I should get it soon. Applied 9/6.

Based on LSN profiles, it looks like people reported decisions starting in early-November.

Has anyone's application gone complete yet? I sent mine in on the first day apps were open, which for them was almost a month ago. Still not complete.

Applied ED and dinged last year, but to be expected with my numbers. I feel really good about this past LSAT though, so I'm hopeful! Will be back in a few weeks.

If anyone has any questions regarding UMich, I know a current summer start 1L and she's willing to answer my questions so I can ask her things.
