same stats! gives me hope!

when were you admitted?


Admitted - 1/16/10 (snail mail)
Scholly stuff - 1/25/10 (also snail mail)


Hm I was admitted a couple weeks before you, I wonder if that means no scholly for me


Based on your numbers and other acceptances I would be shocked/outraged if you didn't get money.

I sent in my withdrawal letter today after being admitted on Nov. 11. This was the hardest one yet given how awesome Dean Zearfoss has been this cycle.

I hope my spot goes to someone who wants Michigan badly. And my withdrawal will free up an additional $45,000 in merit aid that Michigan gave me.

I'm pretty sure you'll get money. Where as at many schools admission is based more strongly on raw numbers, and scholarships are given with a more holistic look, at Michigan it seems to be the other way around...

Ho hum. Complete since 10/8 and still nothing. 172/3.6X and was hoping to get some $ from Mich. Any chance of that still, or should I just withdraw? (I was accepted to a school I'd prefer if I had to pay sticker at both).

I'd hold out and see what happens.

Edit: My status checker hasn't updated yet today, anyone else?

Mine hasnt updated either. It probably just is updating late. I truly believe I will never hear from Michigan and then sometime when I am practicing in a few years my letter will show up

Maybe they finaly decided "Hey, if we are just going to sit in the office drunk again today, why should we make it look like we did any work?" Then someone else said "You know, thats a great idea. STOP THE UPDATING."

Haha. I can tell you're anxious -- so am I (0 acceptances yet)! Plus, I'm coming up on three months. At this point I just want to know.

Maybe we should call and make sure everyone is alright up there. They could be held hostage and this is their only way to make contact with the outside world!

Yea, somewhere. Yesterday's post was nice. I like the thought that goes into our applications, not just a comparison of someone's numbers to a schools goals. What I wouldn't give to see what they wrote on my application...

G-darn you Michigan and your crazy daily-updating status checker!

And I'm not sure if I should be happy with TLS for letting me know everyone's was slow to update, thus preventing me from getting annoyed when a decision isn't released soon, or angry at TLS for informing me about the update cycles meanings to begin with.

In! :shock: Just logged on to the Admitted Student site. Looks like the letter was sent on the 25th. Couldn't log in yesterday. Didn't really expect to get in so today was a nice surprise. Good luck to all who are waiting.

Congratulations! Has your status checker updated to today's date?
