I really doubt IT personally updates the site. I'm pretty sure that assistants or whoever make updates to the system throughout the day, and then every night at midnight the server automatically re-synchs with the system and refreshes the site with any changes. It may be that with an increase in workload, there's a delay in when things are happening, and when the assistants are making updates to the system...

I can't imagine being rejected at Michigan, but this cycle has been very odd. Strange things are happening, maybe due to the flood of applications this year.


Hope?

Are you guys with no access to the admitted students site getting red text or a weird error message. When I went to decision I got a weird error message for a day and then was able to log-in the next day. If you're getting red text, it's probably bad news.

Is it just the AS site that updates at midnight (and midnight only), or the status checker as well?

Maybe, though generally at places where I've worked IT handles anything that involves granting or denying access to resources. It could easily be setup to take input from anyone, such as an assistant, depending on organizational policy. Some places don't want just anyone in charge of granting or denying access so they make sure a network admin or someone else in IT handles that. Who knows. We need someone who has worked in admissions at a law school to enlighten us!

I also have decision on the status checker. I can't log in to the admitted student site either. I thought my numbers were pretty competitive for Michigan with a 171/3.8. Oh well.

I applied 10/3 and I'm still at complete... Michigan is one of 3 schools (2 of which I would actually attend) that I'm waiting to hear back from... I just wish they'd hurry up and let me know either way.

I'm not sure what this means for me... I went decision today as well, but I have 163/3.84. It was definitely a reach for me. Maybe it's good and I got in with all of the other high numbers?

are people's numbers from the 1/11 update significantly better or worse than the 1/9 decision kids? we could be looking at one wave of dings/waitlists and another of acceptances.

I'm not sure exactly when i turned to decision, but i think its a good sign that you're not at decision. My numbers point to rejection and i turned to decision. (don't want to be in my wave).

also does the date on the status checker change every day? I'm not exactly sure when i turned to decision as i didn't check the status for about a week. But i'm guessing regardless of any change the status checker just displays today's date?

At 1/11 decision on status checker, in their 80th percentile, wrote Why Michigan. Can't get onto Admitted Students.

Ok, I'm thinking this isn't one homogenous round of decisions. With the wide range of numbers we're seeing, there must be both rejections and acceptances coming out.

Michigan is pretty much my #1 choice. I don't know how I'm going to survive until I get some closure on this.

Wait until you get a letter to write Michigan off.

I don't understand how Michigan can be rejecting 170+/3.5+s right now. Logically that would be at least a waitlist and I would expect them to just not render a decision yet if they werent sure.

Maybe they just found a way to prevent people from pulling the Admitted Students' site trick...

I hope it's a mix of good and bad news (which, from the numbers, it looks like it will be). G'luck folks.

But i'm guessing regardless of any change on the status checker, the date just reflects the current date? or does it only update when the status changes?

That sounds reasonable - LSP puts me at auto-admit for michigan, so I'm not counting myself out just yet

Decision rendered on 1/11 and no access to ASW either. I thought I was very competitive for Michigan maybe not all of the decisions are rejections.

THE STATUS UPDATES EACH DAY. Every day...every day. Except weekends.

I think I heard someone volunteer to call Michigan and confirm that the Admitted Students website trick works/doesn't work today. That's great! Thanks for helping us out.

Thanks, but a lot of people are saying it was either 1/9 or 1/11. 1/9 being a saturday...

so since i didn't check the status until today, there's no way to tell if i'm of the 1/9 or 1/11 wave?
