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.

Does anyone have any info on when summer start applicants might find out?

I applied on the deadline (which wasn't ideal, I realize), but since I only went complete recently I am worried about finding out in time to get everything together for a May 30 orientation!

My understanding is that being a summer starter does not speed up your application. You'll find out if you're a summer starter when you get accepted. The first deposit deadline is the same for fall and summer starters. However, I do believe they prioritize summer starters when it comes to processing loans. Someone in the summer starter c/o 2020 thread said they spoke to the finaid office and they said they only need two weeks to process loan requests and get you the funds.

Thanks for that :) not really. My LSAT was below median and I don't have a reportable GPA because I'm an international.

If you go into the 2020 area, there's both a Michigan Summer Starter c/o 2020 thread AND a Michigan c/o 2020 thread.

Last year according to MyLSN all but one were reported by April 1st the exception was April 4th. The year before that all but a couple rejections were done by march 27th. And before that april 1st again. Seems like by the end of the first week of april is a reasonable expectation.

Anyone seriously considering UMich but unable to make it for the ASWs? I feel like I'm the only one not going. Feel terrible.
I definitely plan on visiting before the deposit deadline, but I'm afraid I'm gonna miss out on a lot.

Me. Don't sweat it. If you have/can visit another time it's no big deal! I already visited.
