How long after obtaining access to the admitted student site does the confirmation package arrive? My parents said not to get my hopes up, and I don't think I'll be able to sleep properly until it is official.

Depends on where you live; if you're in the US, it's usually a few days. You can check when it was mailed by going to the Mail & Money link on the Admitted Students' site, though. Congrats! :D


Whose advice are you gonna take... your folks who have not gone through this... or the 100+ people who accessed the site and subsequently received the package. One person accessed the site that was not accepted, but that was an anomaly and he only got on once. You are in like flint!

it's been a full month since i applied, and i've seen others who have received their status checkers in the last couple days, so i finally figured i had waited long enough before asking if i'd receive my status checker anytime soon... annnnd they haven't responded. womp womp.

edit: they wrote me back! she says that at the moment, they have 1,000 more applications today than at this time last year. yikes.

Status checker changed to decision and I am able to log on to the admitted students site. So I guess that means I am in!

So if I got the status checker 12/9 and haven't heard anything since then, should I start assuming the worst?

No, not necessarily. They're pretty behind with their apps...

Oh, haha, I guess I did get that courtesy email. Man I'm going crazy, I can't keep my stupid dates / status checkers / "just wait a while longer" emails from each of the schools straight.

I apologize in advance, as I'm sure this has been reported previously in this thread, but I just didn't want to sift through all the pages...

Could someone tell me if the merit scholarship info. comes with the initial acceptance, or does it come later? Thanks!

OK, great to know! I probably won't qualify for much, but I'm still holding out hope that they'll offer a little (10,000/year would be HUGE, even though it's tiny relative to other offers)

I just checked the "Money and Mail" thing on the admitted students site and there is a 2/2 mailing for "Dean's Scholarship". Does anyone else have this? I didn't get anything in the mail today. Does this definitely mean you got a scholarship, or is it just an invitation to apply? How much money are dean's scholarships usually? Feel free to PM me.

It indicates a very likely a scholarship offer on its way to you. Congrats!

Usually Dean Scholarships at Michigan fall in the range between 10K/year and 30K/year.

That's odd, I didn't think they posted that under the admissions communications tab. I figured it would show up under financial aid communications at the end of Feb...

So you don't have anything under the money and mail thing? Does anyone else have anything under the mailings (other than admission package)? I'm really trying to not get my hopes up until I literally have a piece of paper in my hand stating that I got some scholarship money. I was joking with someone that they sent me a letter to tell me "In case you were wondering about the dean's scholarship that you may have read about on TLS, you didn't get it. That is all." LOL.

I think you're the first person to have posted that. With 2/2, though, you'd also be the most recent person to get a $$, so maybe they recently changed. For a while, all of my notifications had disappeared, then returned after a month. It's quite possible that they've been changing up the format...
