Congrats to the next wave of admits!

Did anyone who is complete and not admitted write other Michigan Optional Essays? I didn’t write the “Why Essay” but did 2 of the other optional essays.

Mind me asking when you submitted? I got the "received" email from Admissions on 11/6. Still waiting for the UM ID email.

*I have a pending lsat take so I have a tendency to get paranoid about whether adcoms are holding off on my app.

IN IN IN!!!!!!!! One of my top choices! Kudos to the fiancee for not indulging me when I was super sad not to be in the first wave yesterday (though I am wondering if something was wrong with the status checker yesterday)!!

For those that are in via status checker, did the date update but still say complete earlier in the day? In other words, is it worth checking throughout the day if you've already seen the date change?

No worries! Submitted 10-21, got the app received email on 10-23, and the status checker email on 10-31.

We're probably going to be lumped into the same cycle, then. I submitted 10/18, got the app received email 10/19 and status checker email 10/23.

When I was stalking last year's thread, it seemed like a bunch of people with outstanding stats (which both of you obvi have) got their acceptances just slightly later (maybe a ~week or two after the acceptances started?). I know it's easy for me to say "Don't stress" and who knows why people get accepted at different times but I like to think that they're sitting around arguing over how big of a scholly to offer y'all :)

Did anyone who is complete and not admitted write other Michigan Optional Essays? I didn’t write the “Why Essay” but did 2 of the other optional essays.


I wrote a diversity essay and an essay to explain my standard test discrepancy..went complete 10/11. I feel regret about not writing a why Michigan essay...

Got the app received email on the 16 and status checked on the 17, and haven’t gotten a response either, so probably a part of the same wave as well

Congrats to those admitted! If Michigan stays on your list later in the cycle, I highly recommend attending admitted students weekend & also, feeling free to reach out to students (like me & chandhi & others), those listed on "Ask A Wolverine" & those who might email you sooner or later (especially if you're a prospective member of their affinity group) and ask questions.

And for those not admitted yet, don't lose hope; be patient!
