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 definitely plan on visiting before the deposit deadline, but I'm afraid I'm gonna miss out on a lot.


A lot of the students I met at Berkeley said they had never visited before they arrived for orientation. I think if you're visiting you'll be fine! Just let the admissions office know and they'll accommodate you to show you what you need to know

All schools I've visited so far, I visited not on their ASW's. I think its really valuable. you see what the school is like on an average day, and the admissions have been accommodating to me each time, usually finding a student to give me a tour of the school. I've enjoyed going when I can get that inside look of certain schools. I know there are other benefits to ASW btw, just pointing out that there are also benefits to going on other weekends and don't feel too bad about it

Good luck everyone that's complete! Fwiw, I'm currently at ASW so if anyone wants to ask me anything about how I feel about it or whatever else, lemme know.

So was it fun? :D I can't make it to either so I'm actually really curious to know how you felt about it!


Yeah, it was very fun. Michigan scheduled a bunch of events, but you didn't have to go, and I think they did a good job of having events that lead to interacting with current students in a more "intimate" setting so that people could get a better idea of what the students are like. I also think they did a good job of avoiding making ASW seem like a hard sell and just making sure we're making an informed decision and weighing our options. Also, this weekend might have been a little different from a going out standpoint (or maybe it's kinda the norm), but people here seem like they aren't afraid to/against going out and having a good time on weekends (which start on Thursday for some people, of course lol).

I'm actually not sure, I didn't check the status checker frequently enough to catch the date, and it doesn't seem to display now. Sorry.

Me! I couldn't get the time off work to make the trip for ASW. I did go visit on my own a while back and got to sit in on a class and take a tour. I fell in love with it while I was there, and plan to attend if it makes sense financially.

I have been complete since 3/4, and I have heard nothing back from Michigan. Sent in another "Why michigan" the day before, and told them that they are my first choice.

Does Michigan require a deans certification? Just trying to get all my deadlines and required documents in order.

Thanks!

In the exact same boat, complete since 3/4! I applied for summer and fall start. Any idea when the last day we can hear is? I applied for a dual-degree so I am going for the MPH regardless, so i need to know when to pack up/move across the country....minor details. Constantly refreshing my email/portal.

Michigan should be done around early Apr based on last years' experience. So we should hear back really soon. I also applied for summer and fall start.
