Tell us what's important to you
I was wondering this too since the 2021-2022 first admission wave was a bit later than the 2020-2021 first admission wave. I emailed them asking when I could expect some word back on the decision
I'll post what they reply in the chat
thank you!! @anxiousyanna
Not to be creepy, but I noticed they set up on Facebook for class of 2026 admitted students
so im hoping that means we might hear back on a decision sooner rather than later!
Like they made it or a student made it?
Maybe it will be soon, if it was from them
Wait - read that too fast. Yeah, hmm. We might hear back soon
ok, fingers crossed!
they made it, UM Law and the admissions director (i think)
yes im thinking maybe early october if anything!
they already answered me and didn't answer my question on when we should expect to hear back and if it would be end of november LOL
all they told me was that we will receive an email once the decision is made and to check the status on that website
so im hopinggg that them being so vague means they are coming out sooner rather than later
oh LOL
Hopefully! Thank you regardless for asking @anxiousyanny
@FriedChicken-1: you're welcome!!
I hope they start giving decisions in October. Istg I check my application at least twice a day now
@Bravo6: Same!!!
Same here!!! *^
I may be crazy but I swear I had a date when I went under review and maybe some other things in the status section but now everything after under review is blank??
I no longer have a file completed date
Once again, I could be going crazy lol. I'm just so excited
I actually never had a file complete date! When do you think it changed for you?
ahhh i hope that means there is some movement with the decisions happening soon!
I might not have either! I can't keep all the applications straight so maybe nothing has changed and my excitement got in the way haha! but if it did change, it would have been today!
I also hope it means some movement is coming!!
im growing so impatient so lets hoped it changed! im dying to hear back already
I've been under review since September 8th
