Help us make LSD better!
Tell us what's important to you
Again, last time I swear!
always scary seeing ppl who applied long after me hear back lol
i have been ghosted methinks
Probably not Swayze yet. Has it been 10-12 weeks already?
Sent app in on 12/20, last status change 1/10
so perhaps they're holding me over to see how things shape up, or maybe will get caught in one of the upcoming R/WL waves
big wave of WL's today and no news for me... not sure how to interpret that! App complete 12/11, last status change 1/05. Might be ghosted like Nondescript!
the status checkers down :(
got the WL today, does michigan typically have any movement?
is there a wave today ?
what does it typically mean when people who applied after you got a decision but you are still waiting? Is it that they cant decide or is it a likely R
@TheBeefGuy: You might find U-M's "Chill Lemur" post helpful. https://michigan.law.umich.edu/admissions-a2z-blog/chill-lemur-speaks
Basically, it looks like it just means they couldn't agree on a decision for your application yet.
Is the status checker for Mich reliable/worth checking? Or will I find out my decision via email before the status checker
@NondescriptGoodTermite: you'll get an email before the status checker; no sense in checking it unfortunately
Came here to say I’m anti therapy, psychology, ambivalent on the R word, but pro dean Z
when in the day does michigan start sending As
i think around now - may have already passed
womp womp
I guess I take some solace in the fact that I've been dodging R waves and missed the 2/23 WL wave. But not sure if it even means anything...
been feeling the same. Really hoping it means theyre leaning towards an a
It probably doesn't mean an A at this point, but if you've been waiting 12+ weeks, it might mean that they were considering an A, which might mean a better chance at being accepted off the waitlist. That's all conjecture though.
damn. yea makes sense
i wonder if there are some who wait a while and still get in tho
i wonder if there are some who wait a while and still get in tho
don't know why that sent twice lol
Oh, definitely saw some reports on Reddit of people who waited months for the A, had stopped checking, and then surprise A. I think that's less likely at this point in their cycle, but you might as well keep hope. You don't have a decision until you have a decision.
