pending or complete? My report was just sent 2 weeks ago and I am complete (submitted first week of feb, been waiting on report). If you are not complete I'd say something is not right.


I'm complete (sorry for the ambiguity). I sent the app at the beginning of Nov and went complete in Dec.

Accepted by snail mail today, 3-18. My application was complete around 2-26. Online status still just says "complete." Can anyone who has already been accepted and given a scholarship let me know how they were informed of their scholarship? And how long after admission? (I'm a 3.5/175, and possible Michigan resident, btw.)

You get a letter a couple weeks after acceptance. Congrats.

I mean, know I'm late with the app, but I submitted in early Feb to a lot of schools, and I'm complete at almost all of them and have even heard back from a few...


I submitted my app on 2/13, and I just got my status checker email 2 days ago......Yours might be in your email by tomorrow or Monday, I'm thinking.

Yes, I was able to access it this afternoon. (And also filled out the online form for need-based aid, only to learn I'm not eligible... Don't really understand why not, but e-mailed finaid to find out!)

It could be that you got a scholarship. Once you receive a scholly at Michigan, you are ineligible for any further need-based grants. Oh yeah, and my letter came about a week after my admission letter.

Thanks! Fingers crossed. (And uh-oh, I hope I didn't sound too indignant in my e-mail to finaid!!)

Congrats! It's a big envelope, and mine had a "Michigan Law" USB drive in it... have to love the law school swag.

Wow. I was waitlisted at the end of Feb and accepted the waitlist offer on March 2... I've been checking my status every couple days and waiting to see it change from "Waitlist Offer Extended" to "Waitlisted", but it hadn't changed yet as of yesterday. Then today, it says "Decision"! BUT, I can't login to the ASW. Probably a bad sign.

That might be the shortest WL stay ever?! I was dragging my feet on sending in a LOCI. Maybe that's what they were waiting for... any chance it's an admit though? Probably shouldn't get my hopes up. :(

Same thing has happened to me. Weird, probably just another Mich mess up.

Did you get an email saying your waitlist acceptance was received after filling out the survey?

Yes, I got the confirmation email right after I submitted the survey on 3/2.

What do you mean by mess up? I wasn't supposed to be WL'ed in the first place? I hope they would have figured that out a little sooner, rather than get my hopes up! :?

Mess up like it shouldn't say decision.

EDIT: You should call and see what the confusion is.

I'd rather not find out. Wait-list limbo is a good place to be. Not the sadness of a rejection and an acceptance would just make me more confused.

Haha. I see. So you would rather I endure the news for both of us. I guess I will wait it out as well - MAYBE it is good news for us both. Maybe.
