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.

Still feel really unsure. I'll probably visit or go to ASW to get a better feel for the school/location.

Waitlisted as well but it was a bit of a reach so definitely expected.

Does anyone know when the tuition is due for summer starters?

Any ideas on waiting for waitlists from other schools and committing to summer start?

Michigan YPs about 30-40% of applicants above both 75ths, but accepts >90% of applicants at or just above both medians.

It appears so unless people suddenly chose to input previous WL's today. But a few people did write 3/5 as their decision date.

Anyone else feel like the waiting is never gonna end here? I got a handwritten letter asking me to apply, so I looked more into the school and kind of fell in love. Now it's march and I still haven't heard back :(

Same exact boat as you for both Michigan and UVA and mostly everywhere else.

As a data point.
Wl'd w/ 3.3/178. Pretty disappointed as Michigan with a scholarship was plan A.

I got a handwritten note too! Let's hope it means something, and the Dean doesn't just send those out to thousands. Lol.

Not to burst your bubble, but I"m pretty sure that is what they do.

Does Michigan usually take the full 6 weeks to process applications? Mine has been incomplete for much longer than I anticipated.

Not sure what the norm is, but it took two weeks for my app to go complete. Tomorrow will be seven weeks since my app has been complete and I've had no status update since then.

Has anyone here applied for the JD/MPP? My fiancé applied for the MPP program and I was just curious if anyone had been accepted/rejected from that yet.
