Accepted 11/20. Got the letter today.



Do you guys have anything related to that letter under "Mail and Money" in the admitted students website?


No, I don't see anything.


Do you have any mailings listed under the Admissions Communications tab?

No, the only thing listed is Admissions Mailings. Nothing about a scholarship letter.

Does this mean that if you have the 1/11 decision, but can't log onto the admitted students site, that you're denied? I know that's a Mistaken Reversal (thank you Powerscore) of what you said, but I'm not sure what the deal with the UM website logon is. Thanks.

It's not 100 percent certain, but I'd brace for the rejection if I were you. I'm in the same boat.

I also got the $67k scholly today in the mail.

It's a lot of money, but I'm disappointed I wasn't invited to write an essay for the Darrow. I think it's highly unlikely I'll pass on Harvard for Michigan now.

Complete 1/11 RD auto-admit numbers according to LSP


Nothing from them in the mail today. Hopefully I'll know tomorrow - here's to hoping we didn't all get dinged!

Lz06 went Decision 1/11 but has been able to get on Admitted Students for 2 days now. That means yes, we all got rejected/waitlisted.

So... I'm DR as of 1/11 and I CAN log into the admitted student's site. Yet, I have a 165/3.91. Is Michigan teasing me?

A 173/3.7 gets 67k, and my 3.6/173 gets WL/Ding, then 165/3.91 is a straight admit...?

WTH?

anecdotally, it seems michigan is the school you want to apply to if you have a low lsat but respectable gpa. Seems like tons of below median LSATs are being accepted.

I suppose I might get CCN, but I am not shooting for t6. Michigan, Duke, Vanderbilt, and Northwestern were hands-down my favorites, Michigan being near the top.

Maybe I can write a LOCI if I just get held. I suppose it's worth a shot :|

I suppose I might get CCN, but I was really set against paying sticker, and not shooting for t6. I'm planning to go into govt/pi after law school, so I'm not comfortable with accumulating debt deep into six-figures. Michigan, Duke, Vanderbilt, and Northwestern were hands-down my favorites, Michigan being near the top.

I think you are a shoe in at Duke which is practically equal to Michigan despite what most TLS'ers think. I would bet a hefty scholly at Vandy. Northwestern is hard to predict considering the WE requirements. But I would have guessed that you were easily in at Michigan too so what do I know. I got in with a 3.5 171 so I have no idea what Michigan is doing.
