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.

Sorry, haven't read through this entire thread - has anyone else been waiting this long to get a decision?


Why would you think about withdrawing just because they didn't answer by the middle of January?


Seconded. Even with a fee waiver, you've already spent the money to submit the application.


Just wondering if anyone else has been waiting this long. Would withdraw if this long wait likely indicates a wait list, because I'd rather free up the space for someone who would actually want to attend.


I still do not understand. You have no idea what it means. Even if it meant that you get waitlisted, there is no reason to not wait and see.


I was curious if anyone else who applied in early September hasn't heard back yet. Shouldn't have mentioned withdrawing.

I'm in a similar boat. Applied in October, above both 75ths, haven't heard anything. I'm a little bummed out about it, but such is life...

At what point does this transition into some sort of admitted/attending students thread? Or maybe I'm just a bad interneter.

Did anyone write a thank you note in response to receiving their financial aid?

It's not necessary to write a note, unless you have other offers already and are trying to negotiate. T


Ok- not even a reply to the email?

Thanks! I'm super excited about Michigan and it's a top contender for me. It's the school I applied to last and knew nothing about but once I researched it for my essay I was really excited about it!

Radical statement: Unrelated emails from the office of financial aid shouldn't be allowed while scholarship decisions are being made.

Did anyone else get this email that's essentially "Hey, we know you applied and are anxiously awaiting a decision! We have no further information at this time!"

Bc it's kind of a bummer lol

Just got an email from Michigan and I was really excited. Imagine my dismay only to see that they're thanking me for my patience.

I am curious though if this was an automated email or if it was sent to specific applicants, just because they mentioned a few times how I applied particularly early in the cycle, which I did not. I didn't apply until Mid-Late November, and I was just curious if everybody else who's waiting on a decision got this email?

And why is it like 800 words? I know you have had my application since September, please do not email me to clarify this. And if you do, keep it at 3 sentences max.
