Dear Michigan,

I thought you told me you loved me.

I guess you don't.

Grandest Dreams,

KM

My red text is mixing with my black tears of doom.

I'm still sending lots of positive vibes out to Mich, but I've been complete for almost 5 weeks. The waiting is probably worse than a WL/reject.

Actually, no, that's probably not true. We all still have some hope, and we should all be clinging to it. For our lives.

Dear Dean Zearfoss and the members of the Admissions Committee,

That is all.

Sincerely,

According to what Dean Zearfoss said last night at that admissions presentation they did, she is accepting people at a much slower rate than usual because application submissions are way up and she doesn't want to leave people out because she filled up the class too early. Not that it will make the waiting any eaiser, but just passing it along.

Considering we submitted on/around the same day, I guess this means bad news for me too.

What's wrong with me Michigan? My Dad and next door neighbor wrote great LORs and I thought my PS about how Ohio State football inspired me to get out of the prison mental hospital and get on with my life was a real tear-jerker. Some have compared it to "A Million Little Pieces," written by my hero James Frey. I also thought my addendum on why my freshman year GPA shouldn't be considered because I was way too tanked to read the words on most of my tests came across pretty honest.

Seriously though, what's the deal?

Anyone else already have a status checker and just got 2 new emails telling you you can now use the status checker? What's going on in Ann Arbor?

Yes. Maybe this is their friendly reminder that we should be checking that and not the admitted students site? lol.

+1. Interestingly enough the update date on it changed to today. I figured it was becuase I requested they change my phone number, but now im confused if other people got one.

Tomorrow would have been 3 weeks exactly and I got mine today. So maybe there is hope that they are really that bogged down?

ok i just started reading this threat so i apologize if this is a really silly question... i have noticed lots about red vs. blue text. i just checked my status for the first time (just got the status checker email), and all my text is blue saying that my application is complete. does this mean anything?

No. The red text is in reference to the admitted students website login. Red text there means you have not been admitted up to that point.

ahhhh thank you. and for those people who are still waiting on status checkers.... i called the admissions office today because it had been about 4 weeks since i got the "received" email. the nice woman i spoke with said that status checker emails go out once a week (usually on wednesday), the week or two after your application is complete. i spoke with her a few hours ago, and got my status checker email about an hour ago. she also said to check your junk folder to make sure it's not there. hope this helps!

Anyone know why they haven't sent out many rejections yet? Do they wait until after Dec 15th to reject you?

I applied 11/1, received a confirmation email 11/5, and just received my status checker today. I would give them more than a week or two at this point. Then again, my LSAT is < 25th%, so maybe they just stuck me in the slow pile... who knows.

... Little over 4 weeks since submission for me y nada. I forgive them though since the freezing temp probably slows the process.

So if we can get into the Admitted Students' Page then that means in?
