Here's an idea: don't look at his page at all. Don't be a stalker. Be a grownup and wait until January 3 when he'll announce.
Uniqnames: A (very boring) explanation
So to start off: William Campbell is not enrolled at the University of Michigan…yet.
Uniqnames are given out to people with affiliations to the university. Having a uniqname does not mean that you are a student or faculty at U-M. Go ahead and do some random last name searches on directory. You’ll find a variety of titles, from volunteers to doctors to janitors. Uniqnames are necessary for Mcards, so anybody that has an Mcard has a uniqname. So we can all agree: uniqname does not equal enrollment.
William Campbell is probably not going to be a “Office Assistant, Senior”, you argue. Ok, here’s the second hint. Look at his affiliation. He doesn’t have one, does he?
As a background, students create their uniqnames after they pay their $200 enrollment deposits. The keyword there was not enrollment, but DEPOSIT. As a high school senior, you have the option of paying as many deposits as you want, provided you get into all of those schools. However, in the end you eventually pick one school you go to. The deposits merely hold your place in line, so that the universities don’t give your spot to somebody else. You are free to change your mind at any time, so long as you don’t mind losing that $200. Now, as you may guess, Scholarship Athletes are exempt from paying the $200. They are free to create a uniqname whenever Admissions admits them.
Students are not enrolled at the university until they sign up for their first class. Up until that point, students are free to go to whatever institution they want. For winter term students, this means the first day of winter term. For fall students, this generally means summer orientation. So, until that point, students will HAVE their uniqnames, but WILL NOT be enrolled at U-M…yet.
Once you register for classes, batch security will update your directory account. You will receive an affiliation (Student, Undergraduate Kinesiology) and you will be all set for life as an undergrad. If you notice, Tate Forcier, William Campbell etc. don’t have affiliations and such. Check Elliot Mealer or Martavious Odoms for examples of this.
This was long and probably very unnecessary, but hopefully this will prevent annual internet blowups.
I'm just trying to quell the internet rage.
Nice post. It helped to put everything in perspect... OMG! Some guy called "W.Campbell6909UM" just updated his youtube account!
I don't think jmblue was directing that comment to you. I think we all appreciate the explanation. I think his comment was directed at the people who have been making such a big deal about Uniqgate.
to focus on and all that normally goes with the bowl season usually distracts most of us from every tidbit of recruiting news and propaganda. I know I don't focus on recruiting until after the bowl games except this year is just upside down.
Inever wanted to get that deep into it in past years, but this year I got my subscription to GBW and I'm checking multiple times per day. All the "news" just gets magnified during this dead period.
This post is in connection with otters, right?
i work for the housing department and i'm trying to get some inside info whether the early enrollees have had room requests yet...i will inform if i hear anything.
I'm just one voice here and you can feel free to disagree, but please don't try to pry into their room requests. It seems you're coming from a good place and trying to help get some good info, but looking into room assignments seems a bit too much. Couldn't you get in trouble for disclosing that kinda stuff? Anyway, we will all find out soon enough.
You know, the MToken works both ways. It let's you into the system, and also lets the system know what you're looking at.
why you can't find Threet in the directory?
Many athletes do it, because of people like you all.
he's still listed under Ryan Mallett.
That was a horrible joke. I'm glad you haven't posted since points started.
1st day of winter term is January 7th, so all you jersey chasers be sure and sign up for Stats 100 ASAP...
