Yes you can. If you can log in, then obviously you've been admitted. If not, WL or rejection.

And where do you log in?


Dude, I don't even have my status checker email yet but I know from last year's thread. Search through that or just browse UM's website.

Hah alright man. The truth is I don't care that much, but to Legacy - thanks for providing.

If it makes you feel any better, you guys aren't missing anything. The most recent bullet on there was for 2009 Orientation, so they haven't even updated the site for this cycle...

I feel your pain...I want to get my WL or Reject sooner rather than later!

Why do a jd if your endgoal is to be a librarian (or collection management and acquisition technical specialist)?

Yeah, I'll admit that my tone wasn't right (sorry for that), but I'm honestly curious about this. What's the advantage of this program, and what kind of work would you see yourself doing if you got the dual degree?

Just FYI for Michigan applicants: Don't panic if you don't get accepted/get any news right away. I submitted early and I think I didn't get in until February. Waiting a long time doesn't necessarily imply a rejection the way it does with some other schools.

I got the received email five or six days after I submitted. If I don't get the status check email by the end of this week I'm sure I'll get it at the beginning of next.

Does the status tracker always update to the present day?

Or are they just really looking that hard at my app?

(Think I know the answer to this one...)

Well, I know it changes for SOME people every day, just want to see if there are any exceptions (i.e. it doesn't change for ALL people everyday)

:D I think we can say for most TLSers it has been changing every day, or close to every day. Mine has updated to today.

While I'm not positive, I'm pretty sure there's kind of a ceiling you hit as a law librarian without a JD. I mean it makes sense, law librarians are supposed to be knowledgeable on not only the cataloging of legal references, but also legal research and to an extent legal writing as well. If you look at the site showing the Staff of U of M's law library (http://www.law.umich.edu/library/info/about/Pages/bios.aspx), six out of twelve have JDs, with some even from Michigan Law. It also looks like those with JDs tend to be closer to the top in the hierarchy. I have a friend who went to law school, didn't like firm life and is now going back to get the MIS to be a law librarian. It's a fairly overlooked position in the legal world, and while not sounding as cool as working for a V10 firm, it seems like it would be a decent paying, stable job with good benefits, a lot better than struggling to make it on your own or with a small firm if you don't like the work you're doing...

Just got my application received email (171, 3.28). Michigan's my top choice and I think I wrote a good "Why Michigan" essay so I'm hoping they'll overlook the low GPA.

I'm confused...

I just got my michigan "received" email today--and they said they'll request my report but it will take them 2 weeks to get it...

But I applied to Berkeley the same day and am already under review there...

How does that work? (Or is "under review" a VERY broad category?)

I think the first batch of acceptances (likely the EDs for sure) will go out right before Thanksgiving...

Michigan is fairly slow (it took me a month to go complete after I applied, last cycle). Thankfully, they're not nearly as slow as Penn or Chicago have historically been...

They might. It's good you applied early. The spots for splitters and the more borderline candidates get used up quickly. I wouldn't be surprised if you got a WL, but that's not the worst thing, as it gives you a great opportunity to expand on yourself and why you love Michigan...
