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.

Congrats. How do your stats compare to their 25/50/75? Also, if you have a second, add your info to the spreadsheet linked on the OP!

Figured I'd bump this for the next wave of admits. Congratulations!

Haven't received a decision yet but out of curiosity, are there a lot of fully-furnished housing options near the school?

Ann Arbor has a lot of housing options, but 95% of them are really old and gross. The place i'm in is brand new with new furniture and essentially the same cost. Good luck on the decision.

Lawyers Club is great, and I highly recommend it. But it isn't available for the summer starters first semester. They clean it and use the Lawyers club for OCI.

At this point is there anything we can do to "boost" our applications? I didn't get into my #1 and Michigan is easily my #2. I've already been admitted to Gtown, but DC is crazy expensive to live in... Not a lot of great options anywhere near the legal center...

My app has been "Complete" for months, and I'd like to do something to impress upon them how much I'd like to go, and that I will go if admitted. I am right at their medians, with strong softs.

In via email early this morning!

Former military officer, grad degree. GPA<25th, LSAT>>>75th.

I applied a while ago actually, 11/02. I didn't do any additional essays, just a PS. A month later, I felt pretty stupid and sent in a Why Michigan essay via email and got an encouraging response from the admissions team. I would say that if you submitted your application a few weeks ago and still wanted to add an additional essay, you should go ahead and email them and have it added to your file. Michigan was a top choice for me, but when I sent my application I didn't really understand that you could use Why X essays for more personal reasons.

Excited to see the merit aid come out!

Complete since September.. Lsat at 75, no GPA.. sigh. I reapplied thinking it'd be way easier to get in with a new score but nope.
