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.

+1, Complete 12/21

There's a guy who has been waiting since August, and many from September and October. I'm not sure how they decide what order to go through applications, but I wouldn't worry too much.

From the Michigan facebook page
"Hello admits!

FinAid has now contacted everyone who was admitted up to mid-January. If that is you and you have not seen an email from FinAid, then (check your spam and) feel free to call either Admissions or FinAid and we can get you sorted out. Folks admitted in the second half of January are currently being processed by FinAid and will hear soon. Moving forward admits can expect to hear from FinAid re: merit scholarships within 1-2 weeks of receiving the offer of admission."

Super strange, was admitted 12/23 but didn't get any financial aid notification. Guess I'll call their office later today.

Same exact story here. Just called, waiting for response. Not a great look for the admissions office to be honest.

Wow, extra strange, but that makes me feel better! I'll hold off on calling for a bit in case it's just some issue with their email server or something.

I would recommend everyone also check the financial aid and communication sections of the admitted students website to see if they have something there

Just got off the phone. Make sure you call the Law FinAid Office, just to be sure. But I got:

"Yeah, you are not the only person who has called since the Facebook post went up. Just give me your full name, and you should have an email from us by today, latest tomorrow."

Somehow I knew I wouldn't hear back until today anyway so *shrug*

Just got off the phone as well and got the same response, they're just a little behind.

Update from Facebook group: "Spoke to soon. It seems like a couple of people's email got stuck in the pipeline. You don't need to call us right now. We'll get it figured out this afternoon."

Fingers still crossed!

Did you have it on a weekend? Mine was on a Saturday and I got the offer on a Monday (16 days). I wouldn't worry though, somebody in this chain said that they were a little behind schedule because of issues with the interview recordings.

After all the talk about hearing back about financial aid this week for January folks (admitted ~10 days ago), I got pretty excited when I saw an email from the Office of Financial Aid yesterday. Unfortunately it was this:

"The University of Michigan must provide certain consumer information about the university to prospective and entering students in accordance with federal regulations set forth by The Higher Education Act as amended.

Please visit http://finaid.umich.edu/consumerinformation to view this information.

If you need help finding the information on this website or you need a paper copy, please contact our office. You may also download a PDF version of this information at the web address listed."

Thanks for the roller coaster of emotions UMich.

If it makes you feel any better, I sent in all my applications during Thanksgiving break and only just received my decision on Feb 1, so that was a little over two months of waiting. Chin up, guys! You've got this!

Has anyone called/emailed about an incomplete? I was complete for two months now back to incomplete. I did send a LOCI & Recommendation after receiving that "we reviewed you but have no decision" email. Maybe that's why?
