Did your date on your status checker update to 11/20/09?

The number of dots on the Michigan LSN graph is underwhelming. Don't give up hope yet... Have you checked what month it is?

Just because we're not auto-admits, doesn't mean we're not admits. I still have hope for Michigan.

Also, in hindsight, it really would have been worth the few hours it would have taken me to write Why Duke/Why Michigan/Why Penn.

Mine still says "Complete" but updated to today's date... I got my status checker on 10/26 though, so it was a decent wait. Hopefully this begins a wave of admissions today... good luck everyone!

Am I correct with my assumption that Michigan will not give me my status checker information over the phone and that I will have to wait until they send me an email? 'Cause, if not, I'll call 'em.

Does anyone know if they post a bunch of decisions to the Admitted Students Website at once or is it periodically throughout the day?

I hope it's the first so I don't go psycho checking all day.

Congrats!

I tried to log in to the admitted students website this morning then told myself it was stupid that I have only had the status checker since yesterday... Good to know that things actually can happen that fast. well, maybe not good. One more thing for me to obsess over & check frantically. :oops:

You are in the wrong thread. Get out while you still can.

haha, does this mean they do it periodically throughout the day?

I've already checked it like 5 times today. One time it took longer to load so I was like "OMG OMG OMG" and then the same message listing the error came up again... :(

I don't think we have established how often they do it. It has seemed periodic, but hard to tell given that people check at different times. Welcome to the insanity...

Don't worry, 5 times in one day is still at a non-psycho amateur level. You shouldn't really start to worry until you reach 5 times in 1 minute :oops:

This is really making me sad. My status checker changed to today's date, but I cannot login to the admitted students site. Does this mean I'm out?

Really regretting not writing a why Michigan essay...

question to those who wrote the Why Michigan essay:

Did you focus on why you wanted Michigan, why michigan should want you, or give equal weight to both? I'm having trouble finding the right balance. Especially because I have so many things to say about why I love Michigan.

It changes almost everyday. The more neurotic among us have seen it change a good 20 times or so, and still can't log into the admitted students' site.

Ohhhhh okay!! I just got my status checker yesterday after applying a month ago so I thought I may have gotten my decisions already.

This makes me feel better.

I wrote about why I want Michigan, but focused on what about Michigan makes is perfect for me. Match made in heaven and all that...

I think if you just gush about how awesome it is from an objective standpoint it just sounds like ass-kissing, and could be taken straight from their website. Better to make it personal.

No worries if your status checker date changes and you can't get into the site--the date updates every day (except for Sunday, I believe). Anyways, the date means nothing, so no worries!

Thanks for the advice! I actually went to Umich undergrad and grew up in Ann Arbor so I have some stuff that hopefully wont just sound like its from the website. I'm just worried about working in why I fit at Michigan in a way that doesnt sound condescending or like im too into myself.

what's the likelihood that michigan would YP someone who wrote a why michigan? not that i'm saying they'll YP me becuase i'm not above their 75th for GPA, but just in general...

(edit: im also not saying they'll let me in, no YP notwithstanding. pleeeeeeeeease mich?!
