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.

I applied ED specifically to get my Michigan denial out of the way early and here I sit, having applied on November 3, and I still have not heard back.

Hey all! I've been sitting at complete since October, above both 75ths. Would it be worth updating with a Why Mich? I would only go to Mich with substantial scholarship, so I'm thinking there might not be a point; if the Why Mich would make a difference between WL and acceptance, surely they wouldn't offer much scholly right?

I asked Cornell to match the scholly I got at Mich and they did. Cornell has a higher COA then Mich, however they only matched the scholly, and didnt give anything more.

Would it be possible to get Mich or Cornell to bump up their schollys with a full ride from WUSTL? Would Mich bump their scholly just to beat Cornell?

Both schools said their decision was final when they notified me :(

What's your current scholarship for Michican/Cornell? Probably not on the WUSTL front unless you have a very minor scholly from Cormell/Michigan

Very unlikely you'd be able to negotiate up with WUSTL with that amount in the bag already IMO. Maybe worth a try though

Has anyone not heard anything from Michigan since they applied?

Welcome to the club cantyoloforever. You are most definitely not alone in the world of application silence.

Above both 75's I'd expect to be accepted with no money. They will have to assume you'll just go to CNN if you are that over qualified. If that's not the case, I would say to write a Why Mich, that could be the difference between no money and 150k

Wow that may be the most offensive insult ever hurled at me :P

In all honesty I was just involved in a civil rights legal issue that got national press.

Besides my going complete e-mail, I haven't heard anything, but I also only submitted my app on 1/3, so not that long a wait.

Edit: Actually I take that back, they sent me an e-mail requesting additional info on my in-state tuition eligibility.

Is it a thing that Michigan sends out their decisions in the middle of the night or has that just been a coincidence I've read a few times?

I don't know when it's due, but it's rolling so you should probably fill it out as soon as you can.

Edit: By that I mean I was always under the assumption that you don't want to submit it too late and risk your school running out of money to give you.

Until when do schools, Michigan in particular if anyone knows, continue accepting students? March? April? If no one's sure I'll just search through last year's Michigan thread and find out. Thanks!
