LSP shows Michigan as being the most heavily slanted toward LSAT over GPA of the t14. However, what you've noticed appears accurate this cycle. Looking at LSN graphs, I can see that MI has waitlisted people all the way up to 180 lsat (with a 3.4x GPA no less). They look a bit unpredictable in their waitlist tactics over the past few years, sometimes WLing high gpa, other times high lsat

Dear Dean Zearfoss,

Plz send bighead a 67k scholly. Bighead loves your school and will make an awesome addition to the class of 2013. Wolverines are also his favorite animal.

I'm going to withdraw my application (or reject my offer?) very soon. Hopefully it will go to one of y'all. :)

I am 99% sure I won't be attending law school in 2010. I decided to work another year, save more money, retake LSAT, hopefully get a higher score, and reapply next year. :D

Same here. GPA slightly below the median, LSAT slightly over the 75th. I'm submitting my app tonight, just polishing my Why Mich right now. I also got the fee waiver with a note from Dean Z saying they love my UG.

Lol, just like I said, it will be the miracle of the year (at least my year) if I get into Chicago. I really don't care that much anymore since I've decided to work another year. I would withdraw my application from Chicago if I hadn't paid that application fee. I paid my money so I demand an answer. :D

Honestly, I don't even know why Michigan accepted me. I'm pretty ordinary and my stats sure aren't outstanding.

Yep, only at midnight both the status checker and admitted students site.. Who's staying up until midnight to see if it works then?

Midnight EST I assume?

I'm not sure that's right. There's a couple of time I've been up at 1-2 AM EST and the status check page had 'yesterday's' date (even though I'm west coast and the date was still accurate from my chair.)

Yeah, I think it updates early in the morning. Maybe 8:00 EST or something like that.

AFAIK, she only said that it updated once per day, didn't think she gave a specific time. I pulled a couple all-nighters last semester, I really seem to remember it switching over to the new day sometime around 8-9 in the morning (I am sad).
