Sorry, Ver. :|

Surely if they have to make a decision today then you should be able to find out via the Admitted Students site tomorrow?

Specifically, the website states that for Early Decision applicants that "the office will send a decision no later than December 15th."

If they do not send (mail, with today's postmark) a decision today they have breached their agreement/contract, in which case other applicant offers can be entertained, yet they (Michigan) would still be bound by their admissions offer, even if it was made/sent late.

If you are not admitted today, yet your denial (held over) letter is not mailed today, they are also in breach of contract, although one may find it difficult to determine a specific appropriate amount of monetary damages caused by the emotional suffering in relationship to this delay.

I would agree with the former poster who indicated that he applied ED in order to get a decision sooner than later. This "later" scenario is quite troubling to me. I find it hard to reconcile the fact that they have had the time and ability to admit applicants RD, but show no urgency in bringing us ED applicants our decisions. As an applicant who submitted my application around October 1st, surely they have had sufficient time to make a decision. They have, most probably, made that decision several days, if not weeks, ago.

This delay in providing us with a decision prevents us from taking additional actions to secure other optimal admissions offers, where we could have possibly had a previously submitted application to Penn, Chicago or NYU converted to ED, allowing us to get a quick and possibly favorable decision by an even higher ranked school. I must say that this delay has caused my opinion of the school to drop considerably............

They are not legally obligated to modify the status checker at any point, so they can delay that change if they wish, when they wish.

This is just my 2 cents on the subject.

Why isn't there a question mark at the end of the sentence on your tar? It bothers me.

Yes, Michigan is/was my first choice, although I would much prefer my second choice of Penn, Chicago or NYU in December over a "possible" admit by Michigan in April or whenever....?

I found this kinda funny from their Early Option Description on their Website:

The Early Decision program is not for everyone. Students admitted under this program restrict their law school choice in return for the certainty of learning an admission decision much earlier than is typical.

Really because how many RD applicants have a decision before us?

I still love you Michigan! At least until I find out I waited unncessarily longer for a deferral or waitlist.

Perhaps it would be good to consider that maybe 10% (and probably a much lower %) of this cycle's Michigan applicants know their decision as of today. :wink:

EDIT: I didn't double-check numbers on this, so I might be wrong. If so, my bad.

Aren't the ED deadlines for both UVA and GW today? Does anyone think Michigan could be purposefully trying to prevent deferred applicants from committing to either of these schools?

Getting a decision by 12/15 is "much earlier than is typical" for people with borderline numbers. Last I checked, Michigan seems to have admitted a lot of people ticketed for HYS.
