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.

Posted this in another thread but in case anyone knows here...

How complicated is it to ride the AirRide from Detroit Airport to UMich? Also, how long does it take? Is that the cheapest and easiest way to get to campus from Detroit?

From yesterday on Michigan admitted students FB group:

Additional merit scholarship notices will be going out this week and next week (but probably not today). We're basically on track to be caught up with everyone who has been admitted through mid-January by the end of the month.

We're trying to simultaneously finish catching up with people admitted before the new year while also transitioning to giving people who were admitted in January (and moving forward) merit scholarship information within 1 to 2 weeks of being admitted. So the order in which candidates receive information from FinAid will continue to not necessarily be chronological from the date of the offer of admission.

I saw that. That's why I was asking. I was admitted early-Jan and yesterday was my two weeks mark so I was expecting to be getting the notice like.. now. lol

This is incredibly easy to use. Takes you from the Airport to about 2 blocks from the law school for so cheap. If you have a bunch of bags and you can't carry them 2-3 blocks (depending on where you're going), just grab an uber after you get off the bus to wherever you need to go.

anddddd DINGed this morning. Not surprised, but I wish they wouldn't have given me false hope with the whole "you're a strong candidate" letter.
