I'm 99% sure that's how this whole thing works... well, that or the Go Fish theory.

Did you write a Why Michigan?


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


hehe hope you're right. i'm not feeling too antsy though, i didn't really expect to hear anything from anyone until after december, so i'm fine with sitting on my bum and waiting.

if oneforship's YP theory is correct maybe that means the 75%+ lsat people will start hearing back next week... michigan's ED deadline was 11/15 so they can probably make a somewhat comprehensive prediction on their ED numbers soon.

Hmm what? When were you admitted? My status checker says "Decision" and I can log into the Admitted Students site, which tells me my offer package was sent on 11/10, but I've yet to receive it (Northern California). I did not get an email from Michigan today.

hmm, i'm a high LSAT splitter and got in with the first group last weekend. but, gpa is not terribly low and is from an ivy. perhaps i didn't fall in the "might be ED-ing somewhere" group (i'm not). you can pm for stats.

oh and to the poster above, i think the email went out to people who got in first batch. i got it, too! it's kind of a funny-looking email written in size 16-ish font. cute. for reference, this is the 2nd sent: "We hate to ruin the surprise by telling you what it contained, but let me just say that we never do email follow-ups to make sure people receive bad news. "

I think my package was sent on 11/06. I am sure you will get the email soon, if not today :)

P.S. I haven't received my package yet either. I am having some problems with UPS.

Oooh does Michigan use UPS? If so, that could explain it. I have to jump through hoops to get UPS and FedEx delivered since my building has an entry code with no doorman so they can't get in to drop off the package.

How long does it take to get the status checker? Submitted over two weeks ago, and still haven't gotten it yet.

A quote from Dean Zearfoss:

We never deny someone because we think, by virtue of their LSAT and GPA, that they will be unlikely to accept our offer of admission. Most people with high numbers will be offered admission – but it is also true that people with very strong numbers will often not be admitted.


In tend to believe her. YP concerns are way overblown. It's not because some people at the top-right of the LSN graph are rejected that we have evidence of YP. I know that for some schools, the pattern is quite systematic. I don't think that's true for Michigan in particular.
