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 below both 25ths so I'm not expecting much, however, I received the packet from Michigan with the fee waiver and a tidbit on the Latino Law Students Association... and it said in the letter that I'm a candidate with a strong chance of admission.. which I really don't get. I get the whole sending out fee waivers to reject applicants and make them look more selective, but why say that in the letter? Lol this has been driving me crazy because I hate that it's getting my hopes up!

are you a URM and how far below the 25ths are you? a URM with a 160+ does have a strong chance.


Not a URM, but Hispanic. 161/3.33


I also received that letter. MA with 164 LSAT / 3.7 GPA

FWIW I applied in mid Nov and my app is still incomplete


What I don't understand is- isn't Michigan supposed to have race-blind admissions?


That's not actually what Grutter v. Bollinger says, or what Michigan law specifies. I think California is one of the states where state schools explicitly cannot use race as far as I recall.



The state of Michigan enacted a law after Grutter banning affirmative action in admissions. So Michigan can't take race into account at all in admissions, but Michigan CAN encourage as many minority applicants as possible to apply.

Congrats! I didn't get a fee waiver to Cornell even though I'm a virtual lock there, so sometimes schools are weird?


Yeah I didn't get one initially from Michigan Columbia Cornell or Berkeley. I solicited at MCC but only Cornell gave me one. I got one from Chicago down though.

After much procrastination, finally sent my app. Bit of a hail mary. LSAT < 25th , GPA at median, URM. Only T14 I'm applying to.

I know my LORs are strong, and I feel good about my supp. essays. Only things I feel weak about my app are the LSAT score and my PS.

Dude if your LSAT is even close to their 25th and with your gpa, you should apply to more t-14 schools. You could get a nice boost since you are Mexican. I'm Hispanic but not Mexican and I did that with a lower gpa (albeit a higher LSAT). You have nothing to lose!

I was thinking about applying to Cornell and Georgetown. It's kind of intimidating tho :lol:

I never thought I would be applying to schools like these or even have the chance of attending one. I just got to get rid of this mindset.

Just submitted my app. Just below both medians(literally a single point for both). Not expecting to be admitted but would definitely attend if I was.

Past years' threads indicate they come via email and/or the admitted applicant website.
