Right after I posted this, I saw a decision on my status check. I tried the admitted students site- it let me in. I am sorry to ask a really stupid question, but I literally cannot believe it to be true, and I need someone on TLS to confirm- am I in? :shock:

Holy crap. Thanks, guys.

I just called the admissions office (I'm a little on edge, OKAY?) and they said "Oh, we don't encourage people to log in to the admitted students website until they get their letter, so I can't tell you what it means." Welllll, good thing I'm a TLS junkie!

Excuse me while I go freak out.

I want to check the same thing.

Haha, your not quite enough of a TLS junkie if you missed Dean Z coming onto this thread to discourage people from doing exactly that.

All the same, congrats

Oops . . . I'm just so excited! I will pledge to stop harassing them now. That said, I kind of want to strum a lute under Dean Z's window. . .

I was waitlisted today as well. Same stats, but didn't bother with Why Mich essay.

I assume (and am 99% sure) that it was YP.

You act like it takes Adcomms an hour to find out if an app has a Why Mich? or a LOCI in the file. Beside, WTF cares if they forget, as long as the initial application served a legitimate purpose like the one I outlined in the previous post. Your degree of private obsession (as opposed to the extent of your expressed interest) is not and should not matter.


FTFY. JRMjr, also see soullesswonder's original post responding to your comment. No one has any clue where they are going to get in at the beginning of a cycle. Do you expect that people are only going to apply to their one or two top choice schools in complete confidence that they will get in? If so, maybe you should go thru these threads and see the rampant YP that has been going on this cycle in spite of the degree of interest many of the YP-ed applicants expressed.

If that's what you did & it works out for you, then good for you, but I prefer to have my bases covered by applying to a wide range of schools.

The Michigan graph on LSN is looking pretty strange. Bunch of yellow to the right of a bunch of green. :?

Pretty clear visual evidence of YP, right? 169 fared much better than 172+

Is there a consensus on what a recent change to a UR date of 2/26 means? I'm not W/L'ed.

My heart is in my throat.

Interesting that they do not match. I'd still take it though.

I really, really loved you. I don't know what I did to anger you, but I'm sorry. I did everything I could -- I murdered the LSAT, I wrote everything you asked -- and I guess I'm just not Michigan material. Fuck.

Anyway, this is the end of me in this thread. Later.


LOCI, dude
