@ShortBobcat: Did your address go long yet? Mine has not.
@GooberSnatcher: no, my address didn't go long. only date change
Hey, y'all! Quick update--after my status change from 10/14 to 11/17 last week, my address on Michigan's status checker just "went long." I think this means we could receive some good news in a wave tomorrow!
my date changed 11/10 then went long yesterday! They have been doing waves on Wednesday for a few weeks now
UMIch closed tomorrow will they do another round before thanksgiving?
they did last year so fingers crossed
Thanksgiving bout to be so authentic this year lmao
does michigan give out full scholarships? Or what do most people usually get?
I'm assuming they're sending out all their A's for this round this morning, so probably no more UMich As before tomorrow
op I was scrolled in the chat weird ignore that
anyone have an 11/18 status change?
I have an 11/18 change
Just a data point: applied ED 11/15, went complete 11/21, address went long on 11/28, accepted 11/30
I'm a non-trad super splitter as well
Question for y'all!!! I have a 3.99 and 166 on the Nov LSAT. I'm debating applying now or applying Feb 1 with my january retake (predicting 169-171). What do you guys think, submit now with strong essays and okay stats, or submit late with stronger LSAT? Really torn on this.
is there anywhere you can indicate you're taking it in january? my advice would be to apply early as you can
Do you guys know if you can update them with a higher LSAT score later in the cycle for further scholarship consideration?
If you get an A with no money at first? It looks like nobody's been given money yet from the looks of it.
What does a date change mean?
Date change when?
what are y'all thinking the medians will be at the end of this cycle for uMich?
date changed yesterday from 11/2 to 12/1
@ThirstyTalentedPig: 170 median this year. Not biased at all....
@EnergeticRitzyWildebeest: same for me, date change from 10/28 to 12/1. Based on reddit posts, it seems like a date change on Friday morning to Thursday indicates an incoming decision
for now im gonna choose to interpret it as a good sign based on last year's admission cycle but no guarantees
@FluffyOtter: aha i hope you're right ive got a 170 too
