No decision.

So much for one update per day.

As a previous poster said, I'm supposedly getting a "much earlier decision" by applying ED, but that simply is not the case. I've already gotten one acceptance from another school and will be hearing back from U of I by Friday, since I am currently under review and Dean Pless said that notifications will go out Friday. In the meantime, I'm guessing I'll hear from WUSTL and Vanderbilt any day now. Not to mention the fact that a good number of Mich RD applicants are already getting decisions.


That really is apples to oranges though. As someone said above, I'd imagine that a good percentage of the RD applicants that have gotten in at U of M so far were near locks to get in. There wasn't much thinking that had to be done there, really just YP or no YP. In the same way, the applicants who have decent shots at U of M (like you) are near locks to get in at schools like UIUC, WUSTL and Vandy, so the decisions can come quickly. The decision is pretty simple, and there's no reason to wait. When looking at schools where you're more borderline, they have all kinds of factors to weigh. There's a lot more thinking that needs to be done, trying to gauge how they think the class will fill out and whether they should give you an offer, etc. When you look at ED, you're getting a decision in December, compared to March or so if they decide to hold your application until the end...

After I had applied everywhere, I went and visited Notre Dame since it was a realistic yet far reach and got in. And to say the least, I feel in love.

Michigan better schoool? Most likely but I am a realist and have no shot of getting in and I have to notify ND by January anyway. I am indifferent about AA too, nothing spectacular to me.

I'm curious as to whether anyone has received a decision other than "No Decision" today....?

+1, maybe they just rolled everyone over.

I'm considering withdrawing "in protest" because they dragged out this "Early Decision" notification as long as they possibly could, when they most probably had already made the vast majority of their decisions days, or in some cases even weeks, prior to today.

No Decision too. So now what? We wait until like March to get a decision? Does anyone have any insight?

Don't do that! They could give you squirts about you withdrawing. You are only hurting yourself by doing that.

fwiw, if you really want to go to michigan, i think this is grounds for perseverance, not protest. i get the frustration, but the fact is that none of us knows what did or did not go on behind the scenes. why assume the worst?

that said, it would be odd if everyone got rolled over instead of getting a final decision one way or the other. other than the sample we have here, is there any reason to think that this is what happened?

Whatever it is sckon, it does sound ominous.

Who on earth would ever wish to be "squirted"?

I tremble at the thought!

No decision. It's been fun for me as well. I am actually a little relieved that I have not committed myself to $200,000 in debt. I truly wish the best for each and every one of you. For most of us, Mich was a huge long shot and most of us didn't make it, but all of you deserve credit for having the balls to try for your dream school and giving it your best.

Many of us have similar target schools, so maybe we'll still meet in "real life" - just not at Michigan.

I want to hold you and maybe some day invest in a midsize condo together.

+1. I recommend not making a $150k investment decision based on emotion. If getting into Michigan was important to you in November, it should be important to you now. If you are fortunate enough to be a high GPA splitter, you even have option of boosting your LSAT score (yeah, not easy, but it beats being a high LSAT splitter and being stuck with your numbers). Or you can write LOCIs and wait.

It is quite possible that I will get over my present state of adverse emotions regarding these circumstances. Just not this day.

No decision here too. I guess theres def pros and cons to this. On one hand I'm glad I'm not committing to the debt, and I don't have to do summer start. On the other, if Im gonna be rejected anyway in the RD pool Id kinda like to know so I dont keep holding out hope. Are you guys writing LOCI's or what?

I'll write LOCI in the new year. I owe one to Cornell, too.
