I am absolutely crazy about Michigan :) I have already been waitlisted at a handful of schools that are ranked lower so I was losing hope. I didn't have the best shot at Michigan based on my LSAT scores, but poured my heart into the initial application and two additional essays. I received the "non-hold" email a while back, prepared my LOCI to email yesterday and was planning a trip to Ann Arbor in March. I was just about to send the LOCI when my family called to say that I received the admissions package in the mail. The handwritten note read, "Your writing was so lovely." I'm still in complete shock. I love Michigan and could not be more excited. I wish everyone still waiting to hear back luck, don't lose hope! I very much hope to see some of you there this year!


Congrats Julia! That is exciting.

Wow, Julia, congrats! It's always great to hear stories like these, and certainly heartening. Will we be seeing you at Michigan, then, in the summer/fall? :D

I am all but certain that I will be attending in the fall. How about you? ... I was held at Harvard, but I don't have delusions about being accepted :) The only other school I would humbly consider is Berkeley if admitted (currently FR), but I think my love for Michigan is too great. I'm already looking at tickets for the ASW, I can't wait!

Is there anyone who got the hold email and then rejected? I'm sure I'll be following that step but it hasn't happened yet so just curious.

would they reject holds that quickly? Probably not so near the admissions deadline right?

I will be starting in the summer (and definitely going to Michigan - I'm a Wolverine through and through). :) Best of luck with the Harvard and Berkeley apps!

Anyone know if they are receptive to changing start term? I was admitted for fall but am thinking I'd really like to switch to summer if they'll let me.

Does anyone know if they send out scholarship information with the acceptance letter or does it come later if one gets a scholarship?

Scholarship offers do not come with the acceptance package. They come later.

Their website says something to the effect that "it is more difficult to change terms than to be accepted". If I were you, I would write them an email or call them to explain why you would prefer summer start.

Most people have reported getting a letter a couple weeks after acceptance.

Hey Kids. I'm a bit thick (actually, I'm just lazy and unwilling to read through 150 pages). So, if you can log onto the admitted students site and your status checker says "decision" then you've been admitted. Right?

Doubtful, unless they've run out of money, but they don't seem to differentiate between committed and not committed when giving out $$...


So ED'ing at Michigan doesn't effect scholarship money then either?


No, it shouldn't. Michigan seems fairly unique in that regard...


This would have significantly influenced my decision if I knew about that earlier...
