But you also have outstanding numbers so it could just be the scholarship thing. Good luck!

That was one of my next questions actually was if anyone who has been accepted had to mark yes for Disciplinary Actions? I never had probation, but my school loved to write you up for drinking numerous times with no real consequences other than a note saying "please stop it" haha

For those who have been admitted, check your email. I just got an email from Michigan. The second sentence is hilarious.

This would make a little more sense...I also applied in September and have similar numbers and have heard NADA. I didn't have a disciplinary probation, but I did have to answer an academic one.

Could just be standard YP as well. I answered no to all disciplinary questions, and applied on the first day possible. Still haven't heard anything.

I could see them YP'ing your numbers. I'd be surprised if they did mine.

I wonder if any of the schools just seemingly holding on to some of our applications (high LSAT splitters especially) are just waiting to offer a decision until after the ED period. That gives them the chance to not put us on a WL and discourage us, but also not hurt their yield. And if we get our ED shot in the dark, then we withdraw and no love lost either way. Sort of a YP without any YP-ing going on.

Not a bad theory. Entirely maddening on our end, but possible.

Michigan has more cross-admits with Harvard than any other school. That's Dean Z's "we don't YP" evidence. Take it as you will. I would just love a Michigan acceptance.

Thanks for the happy splitter thoughts oneforship. I just recently got my apps in, so I'm anticipating a long wait period before I hear anything.

This is compatible with what I postulated, because Harvard admits won't be ED admits anywhere. So if UMich waits until after ED period to decide on the highest of high, they will see they still have a shot at those students as opposed to those bound to attend CLS and NYU.

Meh. It doesn't matter either way, the wait still isn't fun.

ur not alone, i went complete on 10/21 and have pretty high numbers for michigan. so far no word and i cant log into the admitted students site. im pretty sure its not YP since someone with a 175/3.9 got in already, so either im WL/rejected or my app is at the bottom of the pile.

this is actually a pretty good theory, i am (sorta) a high lsat splitter and have not heard from any schools yet (uva, duke, michigan) but applied within the first couples days for all 3 and went complete early on.

better late than never i guess, though yes... maddening is the right word for this haha

That 175 could be a homer, or had some other geographical tie in a Why Michigan. 175+/3.9+ is right in the YP range IMO.

nope, but I wrote 2 other "extra essays" though... looking back it boggles my mind why I didn't just write the why michigan one.

I imagine all of the T14 Deans get together in a secret meeting during the cycle and go

One Dean:"Muahaha did you see that one dude __(Insert Name)___ whose trying to get into a T3?"

JR: "Muahaha he has no chance"

Penn Dean: "Hey I got a Why Penn from him, he said Penn was his favorite place!"

UVA Dean: "Ahh what-a-Fucker, he sent that to me too, just crossed out Penn for UVA!"

All: "Lets deny that bastard"

I just looked at your numbers....I think if you really want Michigan and are willing to wait, you'll be fine.
