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'm going to the Los Angeles one!


I'm going to the one in my area! From the email, it sounded like Dean Z was going to be there, so hopefully/probably they're trying to make it fun and useful for prospective students.

I went to one of the NYC ones last year around this time and it was a lot of fun! There were a bunch of admitted students and some alumni. I went to another in July and it was definitely more alumni heavy, but there was a professor there and some other admitted students.

There are a lot of jobs in the metro Detroit area on the west side of the city that would be a relatively short commute from Ann Arbor, and I would think that her project management experience would make her an attractive job candidate for a variety of fields (how does she feel about working for one of the auto companies??)(not sure how many bio jobs there are! although Mich's hospital is ginormous and I don't know if she could find a position there).

Ann Arbor is a great city and I think has even more to offer for non-undergrads who have a bit of money. Really great dining options and lots of cool cultural things because of the university, and it is a really well developed city outside of the university. One of my friends lives near the Ypsilanti/Ann Arbor border and really likes it there. And again - Ann Arbor is pretty close to a lot of other cities filled with young professionals that make for a good night out or place to go to spend the day like Royal Oak, Birmingham, Ferndale, Southfield, etc. etc.



Co-sign on this. Have lived within about 90 minutes from Ann Arbor all of my life one way or another. It has more professional opportunities by far than a city its size would otherwise, and even more within about 30 minutes driving distance. Certainly not the same as NYC/Chicago etc. in terms of immediate offerings, but AA isn't an abyss for job opportunities like many who are from bigger places think it would be, either.

Did anyone else have Dean Z reach out to them to speak about their Darrow? No idea what that means / if it means I got it?

There is hope in Michigan. I cannot speak to the circumstances in Virginia, still waiting on signs of life from UVA.

Yep, I'm going to call Michigan and make sure they didn't use my application as bonfire kindling.

I did not, didn't have a compelling reason and I felt like a generic one wouldn't help much.
