Congratulations, enjoy senioritis for now and Ann Arbor the next four years!
OT: UM Early Admissions Decisions
If I may give a piece of unsolicited advice, do all that you can to stretch those 4 years into 5. I would give my left arm to be a Michigan undergrad for one more year!
(And, yes, definitely stop bringing books home or studying in any way, shape, or form for these next 5-6 months. There'll be plenty of that coming very soon . . . )
I left in 4.
/ hangs head in shame
Worse than leaving in 4 is actually feeling that, at the time, graduating college is a great accomplishment, only to realize years later it is actually like aaaMichFan describes - leaving a raging party at midnight.
Unless you're not from MI and can hardly afford another year of out-of-state tuition
He is I and I is him. The additional school loans it would have taken to stay another year would have been so worth it.
My solution as an out of state student: graduate in 3.5 and stay in Ann Arbor for the second semester of your senior year. That way, you can fit 2 semesters worth of partying into 1, making it effectively 4.5 years for the price of 3.5. Granted, I don't get another season, but considering the price of out-of-state student season tickets is effectively 45k/year...shouldn't I be getting pretty close to a luxury box with that?
I did the 3.5 - 4.5 option and it is actually one of the best and cheepest.. I also started in 97, let's hope you're as lucky and get a national championship in that year... Keep up the positive attitude and we just might.. Congrats and go blue
Just get a ton of AP credit (I mean a ton) and then stay 5 years and maybe work part time. You have so much free time in college it is insane. Do like the B school does and spend a ton of time interviewing.
took me 6.5. That is like leaving the party after dude's parents get home.
Hangs head in shame.
That's what it's gonna take for me to graduate with all the majors I want...damn triple majoring.
I too left in 4 but i had a good reason. My father said he would pay for 100% of my undergraduate education for four years and four years only, after that it was on me.
I loved Michigan but I love my wallet more. Out in 4.
but zero debt.
me too... does grad school count? I did 4 more years of that..
and counting when including undergrad and now grad (PhD).
I just graduated last May. I currently am in grad school(not at Michigan). Not the same at all. :(
....which is exactly why i came back for three years of graduate school. best. decision. everrrrrrr.
Agreed. Thats why I did a Master's of Accounting and stretched it to 5. Living the dream for the next 9 months. Baller.
Great way to stretch your undergrad time, and get some real-world experience. I've interviewed/hired a lot of co-op students and new graduates for entry level positions - work experience while pursuing a degree is of high value.
haha, so true. go for the victory lap if at all possible.
Or better yet, never leave. I have a few friends who stretched four years into 24 years. Wish I had been that smart.
Thank you, sir, and thank you to all of the kind commenters, it is really great to have the opportunity to attend such a fine institution with such a great alumni base. All the advice is awesome too! Pos-bangs for everyone!
6 is better.
U of M has plenty of great grad schools.
And your football ticket priority will get better every year.
Can you play safety?
As a backup safety JV year, I only played after we were down by five touchdowns. I did record 2 career tackles though!
I am about 6'1", 6'2" though so I have that I guess. No stubby legs.
Get Barwisized! Congrats, Dude.
Hello: White Tiger?
that's all that really matters for white defensive players (tiger or human). We can never have enough grit on that side of the ball. When you get on campus, look up that Kovacs fella. He can learn you on the ways of grit application. good luck and may the grit be with you.
Congratulations and welcome to the Michigan family! You have 4 really awesome years ahead. I'm really jealous of you right now. Go Blue!
As a Michigan graduate I congratulate you and envy you at the same time. Great experience... live it up. Oh yeah, don't miss a game.
And don't forget to bring a towel.
UM admittance or 6800 MGoPoints before finishing high school?? Answer truthfully!!
Oh yeah...Congrats! You'll have the best 4 years of your life. Live them up.
It seems that those points should be convertible to AP credits somewhere, doesn't it?
Mgopoints can be applied to Hist 265: History of the University of Michigan
Yeah but that's a crap deal because it means you start paying upperclass tuition earlier.
...and you might have to graduate sooner!
But there are two sides to every coin...
You get better student ticket seats.
The MGoPoints are very near and dear to my heart but I would give them all up in a heartbeat if it meant that I can go to Michigan. Thankfully I don't have to do that!
Probably the best x-mas present you will ever get!
There's a time and a place for everything, and it's called college.
Enjoy the 4 greatest years of your life.
Unless you're like Thomas Callahan. Then it'll be the 7 greatest years.
Tommy: A lot of people are in school for 7 years.
Richard: Yeah, they're called "doctors."
Took me 8! And that was online - not nearly as fun as being a real undergrad I am sure. Here at Michigan for grad school now, so I guess i get a little taste.
“...seven years of college, down the drain.” - John "Bluto" Blutarsky
cross your fingers for north quad.
is only for upperclassmen(soph to seniors).
If I was a freshman, I would want Markley. All freshmen, central campus and close to CCRB. Perfect dorm for freshmen IMO. Bursley isn't bad as long as you get used to the bus rides.
you're probably right. but i think he should still cross his fingers.
also, i lived in markley. the rooms are TINY and it's one hell of a walk to football games. sQuad my soph year was much better.
but for social reasons, I would want Markley. It's convenient because of the location to the parties, classes, CCRB and Mojo Diniing Hall. It's all freshmen so you have a chance to meet new people as well.
It's amazing what has changed in the last 40 years. I lived in Markley during my freshman and soph years back from '71 through '73, and it was definitely one of the least popular and least hip places to live on the entire campus.
they have Markley as all freshmen dorm. The newer dorms would be reserved for upperclassmen(and occasionaly freshmen).
If Markley weren't an all-freshman dorm, I wouldn't want to live there.
I lived in Markley my freshman year and didn't care much for it. Perhaps the most remote dorm on CC and an absolute eyesore. Sure it beat living on North Campus at Bursley, but I couldn't help feeling jealous of friends who lived in West Quad or South Quad.
To the OP, congrats on the big news. I co-sign what others have said about making the most of your time at Michigan. Stay there as long as possible. While you'll celebrate bigger moments in your life after college, nothing beats those college years.
Just be thankful you didn't have to live at Fletcher. While awesome on game days, sucks the rest of the time.
Lived in west quad both freshman and sophomore years and loved every minute. Perfect location and being able to go eat at the union late at night without going outside was great. Congrtats to white tiger on being welcomed to this great institution.
I lived in Couzens in 78 & 79 and then moved into the Sigma Chi house for 80 & 81. The Sig house locaion was fantastic, next to the Student Union, across from the diag and right between South and West quads. We used to fire bottle rockets at the dorms>>>>>
I lived in Bursley freshman year, even though I wasn't an engineer.
Saying that Bursley isn't bad except for having to take the bus everywhere is kinda like saying the handoff went fine, Dude's car just got a little dinged up.
Avoid Bursley like the plague, unless you really want to play Counter-Strike with your hallmates all night (NTTAWWT)
I think South Quad and West Quad are the best dorms to end up in. Markley's got some tiny-ass rooms and some long walks to campus, though this is balanced out somewhat by the degree of raucosity.
Markley is the best! On the form that they make you fill out I wrote.
But buy a good warm pair of boots the hike is a pain. Also I kept a car freshman year by parking it in the hospital and only taking it out at nights when there wasn't a gate. Genius.
And make sure you don't get the words "quad" and "campus" mixed up in your request, especially if you're not an engineer, art student, or music student.
Congratulations on getting into the college of your choice. I hope you soon realize that the hard work has only begun; college is an opportunity for success, not an end in and of itself.
I sense some jealousy coming from this post. Maybe someone didn't have the grades to make it to a school they wanted to go to and had to settle for a lesser academic institution. Maybe one slightly south of the one they wanted. No? Just checking.
Don't be a jerk, it's not like he's a troll.
We'd all be so lucky if all OSU fans were as classy as NABF
I feel like you're being sarcastic, but you're still being a dick.
I was but I apolgize. It is about the young man's accomplishments and not our rivalry. Congrats white Tiger.
Actually, I didn't go where I wanted (and no, it wasn't Michigan). On the other hand, I did graduate from my second choice (The College of William and Mary), which is certainly a fine and upright academic institution.
I'm applying there (William and Mary) and it's tied for my first choice with Michigan. I loved the campus when I visited last fall.
It's a fantastic school and I would highly recommend it. It lacks some of the graduate technical stuff you'll find at michigan, but if you're going into business, law, politics, or public service then it's a great place. Also, it has surprisingly strong programs in chemistry and biology (considering that it has very little by way of graduate programs in those fields). Lots of doctors come out of W&M.
Where was your first choice? W&M is a damn good school.
You may ask.
OSU fans like you make the rivalry so great, thank you so much, sir.
Congrats! I'm applying to B-Schools now and am anxiously awaiting Ross's decision on the 15th of January. Enjoy your time at Michigan!
Good luck man!
MBA. I just got in at Notre Dame, and have apps at Michigan and Texas out there. I'm pumped to leave the military and head back to school.
Well again, best of luck and thanks for your service!
You'll somewhat be following in my father's footsteps . . . active duty Army reserves, Michigan MBA in the evening session, 20 years active duty, retiring with full pension as a Brigadier General.
That's a hell of a career. I'm impressed with folks that can finish an MBA (or any degree) while working full-time. It really shows a lot about their character.
I have had some amazing students in the evening program, I'm always amazing by what they're able to accomplish at the end of a long day. The military personnel I've had in my class have always been dedicated students.
Good luck on the apps! Last year I was right where you are now and ended up going to UT. I'm currently on my 5 week break which I'm thoroughly enjoying so far.
Football was a big part of your school selection I see...
There were a lot of factors, but cost of living with a family is a huge one for me, which makes the West Coast and the Northeast poor choices--although I did throw an App at Harvard. Outside of those two areas, you've basically got 8-10 good choices and two great ones (Michigan and Texas).
That said, I didn't go to a big school for undergrad, and I do want the experience.
Edit: Just got into McCombs on Friday, Wolverhorn. I'll be joining you in Austin if Ross doesn't love me enough. Hopefully my intro essay detailing my exploits at MGoBlog is a winner there.
Good luck from the RSB marketing faculty (well at least from one of us)!
Congrats. If you need alcohol give Boutrous a call he'll be happy to help you out in your first couple years. Nah im jk live it up.
If he needs alcohol he should
1. get a 3X5 card
2. draw a stick figure on it
3. write your name followed by "Date of Birth 9/20/1989"
4. Go to campus corner
5. Buy alcohol
Even they know a driver's license photo isn't supposed to be a full-body pic.
Replace step 2 with: draw a circle with two dots for eyes, a line for a smile/frown/emotionless stare, and some squiggly lines for hair (which can be done in crayon if you want to get fancy and go full color)
Then enjoy your Zima's, kids. You've earned them.
You just opened a huge door for yourself my friend.
Get Hockey season tickets in addition to football (and basketball).You will find Yost to be a much more 'entertaining' place to watch Michigan sports.
What do you plan on majoring in? Regardless, good work, lad.
I could kick myself for not getting hockey season tickets.
You may not be able to kick field goals now, but there's plenty of time to learn!
Congratulations. My four years in Ann Arbor were the finest of my life to date. Do not take one day for granted. Explore everything. Try anything. Before you know it, your time will be up and you will be forced to remember longingly the great days you spent there. Enjoy it.
I'll give you the same advise I'll give my daughters in 14 and 17 years:
Remember that going to college is half about going to school and getting an education, and half about becoming an adult.
And drinking too much doesn't help either of those. Trust me on this one.
Party hard when you get to college - but party smart.
tell your parents you drink, cause we all do ....
the trick is not to let them know how much you drink
college is the one time you can binge drink and it is considered socially acceptable from your peers .... if you want, enjoy it
also, it doesnt have to hurt your studies, in my expirence the maryjane does more damage to those, i know many students who rage hard and rock sick grades
either way, congrats and enjoy it, i wish i wasnt a jr already, it is seriously the greatest place to be in the world
College is the time to practice and build your tolerance in an environment with few lasting consequences (unless you die or something, in which case you should probably cut back) and a permissive social environment.
The first time you drink 9 Four Lokos you are probably going to urinate into a potted plant and vomit on someone standing close by (and worst of all you will have to stay awake to listen to everybody complain about it rather than just passing out from alcohol alone). Would you rather do that at some house party where nobody knows who you are or maybe in a classroom with blind grading come exam time? Or would you rather barf on your boss at the company Christmas party a few years later and get fired and have to live off queso dip and unemployment checks for a few months because you wasted your time in college by studying?
Who the hell owns a potted plant?
"... you are probably going to urinate into a potted plant and vomit on someone standing close by ..."
Ha -- I took care of that in 9th grade after the state swim meet. Left an impression on me, let me tell you ...
is 36 Lokos.
Get that early Orientation! Don't wanna end up with 8AM's across the board
I remember scheduling an orientation for mid July since my high school in California didnt finish until mid June. I avoided the early classes but had Calc 115 from 3:30-5:30. There arent many things more depressing than walking to Couzens from Dennison at 5:30pm in December. I also had random 3 hour blocks in the middle of the day with no class.
Assuming you live within 2 hours of Ann Arbor, select the earliest possible orientation!
Haha I remember my freshman year schedule. It was awful - a few 8 am starts, a few days with huge gaps between classes - I didn't know what I was doing.
Compare that with my 2nd semester senior year where I took 12 credits (3 online - <3 EDUC 362), don't think I started before 10 am and didn't finish any later than 2 pm with no Friday classes. Live and learn.
I worked at the front desk for the orientation for the past two years. I would highly recommend on getting the early orientation asap for scheduling purposes. I didn't schedule for an early orientation because of my obligations with my baseball team(has state title aspirations) which sucks.
They save spots in everything and release it gradually over the summer. Summer Orientation Leader Knowledge!
Congrats. Can you shoot 3's?
I would say yes I can, but my IM B-Ball teammates (some of whom read this site) would say that I probably shouldn't ever take the three.
Congrats and welcome to the family! We need more passionate students like you!
Live it up and have no regrets. It'll be the best 4 years of your life!
PS... Markley is the dorm you want. 4th Reeves baby!
I always wanted to live in Stockwell....
Well now you can!
They finally wised up and made it coed.
At least since 1976, I guess it became officially accepted after I left in 1981.....
Stockwell was ladies-only until it reopened after renovations (in '09?). Staying over was a little weird, mostly thanks to the mini-walk of shame you had to undertake every time you walked down to the only men's bathroom on the first floor.
Not an issue anymore, but it used to make for an interesting experience nonetheless.
PS - For a real challenge, try staying over in the conservative, Stepford-esque Martha Cook - strict no males after midnight policy. If the RA came by, you'd have to Anne Frank-it in the closet or wherever.
in 1981 and 1982 long before it went co-Ed. Great times.
I did for a year... Meeting people you knew in the one "guy's shower" downstairs was always a mix of awkward and high five!
good news congratulations.
south quad is not a bad place to be by the way, hopefully you dont end up on north
One warning on senioritis and throwing away your books the next 4 months:
Unless I am mistaken, your admission is conditional. Should you really tank your last Semester, Michigan reserves the right to pull your admission. I know of one 20 year old who had his admission to Univ. of Illinois pulled for this very reason.
Thanks, I have a few AP classes on my schedule so I think the possibility of getting credits will forestall the senioritis enough to get me through. Plus my mom (an alumna) would kill me and that wouldn't be good.
I took 3 AP courses my senior year and took 0 AP exams. Why test out of college courses? It only means potential early graduation and harder freshman courses.
The thought of passing on those tests... too good to bear right now.
You probably shouldn't listen to me. Although, I did graduate in 4 years, graduate from grad school, and am now a stand-up (??) member of society . . .
Yes they threaten that...it really is just a plea to keep their incoming freshman GPA up. My daughter slid to a few C's in her last HS semester and never heard a peep. She is now a junior at UM.
West Quad dude, West Quad. Enjoy.
As a former South quaddie I can definitely say 'WEST QUAD SUCKS!!"
(usually at 1 am back in 1980 walking back to South Quad from Dooley's....
The fun you will have, the people you will be surrounded by, the experience you will gain!
Ahh, to return to the days of being a South Quad resident advisor in 1979-1981 when I had no money but no bills and no responsibilities either!
Good Luck and keep us posted on how things go! Inquiring MGoBloggers will want to know!
Best four years of your life. Guaranteed. Congratulations.
Congratulations, Have a blast
About North Campus:
It's not a death sentence... just means you'll have a great excuse for sleepovers on Central. But don't sign up for just because you're an engineer/music major/whatever... you'll probably only have one class there per semester. Yay prereqs!
And Markley's fun and all but you'll end up wanting to take the bus from there once it gets cold anyway.
Never agree to take a breathalyzer.
Never admit to drinking alcohol to DPS...ever!
I was also accepted and it is by far the best feeling in the world...good luck to all the people waiting to hear back.
Congrats to you too!
Yes, today was the first day of decision releases and apparently, almost everyone who applied early in state heard back.
Congrats man, (or woman, I guess). Hopefully Dee decides to join us!
It's funny how we're both hoping Dee is the savior of Michigan football and yet he is the same age as us...kinda creepy too.
...it will be the best four years of your life and will join an alumni base that stretches across the world.
And you've got all Spring to learn how to kick - don't worry
And like college dating a stripper is something to be experienced and enjoyed, but not for too long a time!
I'm graduating on Sunday with a masters degree, so as I leave, you can take my spot :)
I wish I could be here longer though.
You are now in one of the finest universities in the nation . Make use of your time investing in yourself and working to your potential.
It's good ... to be ... a Michigan Wolverine!!
Wrong, It's Great to be a Michigan Wolverine!!!
now wanna take my calc final for me tomorrow morning???
Im about to go into a hardcore studying session...in an...hour lol
Congrats! Enjoy it while you can, but view it as a stepping stone to even greater moments in your life. Get your seats for 2010-2011 in the Big House and make sure to keep them warm all four years.
congrats to everyone who got in..i got deferred :/. i have better stats than most iv talked to so not sure why. worst day iv had in a while :(
I didn't get into Michigan for undergrad either and had the same problem. If you got waitlisted, get all A's and send in the transcript after school ends. If you don't get in, go somewhere else and have a great experience.
My life has been great so far, and your's will be too.
depends on when you applied. that's huge. my friend got in with a 25 on his ACT, but he applied the first possible day. i applied in late october, and heard back before him, but we both got in. but i still like to make fun of him for that.
but you are a Catholic League guy right? (i am too). keep the faith. if it's meant to be, it'll happen.
Keep your head up, I talked to my councilor and he said getting deferred isn't that bad this year and no one who gets deferred should be too worried as long as they have good stats. Good luck when your next decision comes out.
thanks everyone, and ya hopefully i get in. had a 31 and 3.8 unweighted :/. know someone with a 24 who got in and someone with a 33 who didnt. if not, i guess im goin to that other in state school who accepted me in like a week haha
I got into the College of Engineering. Pretty excited.
Do Work indeed
/I should be studying
Awesome... what field are you interested in?
I'm an IOE grad. Michigan Engineering opens many, many doors!
i miss it... i drive by the house i lived in the last 2 years, and i get real sad, especially when i see the weenies that live there now.
p.s. hope for west quad. i lived there as a freshman.
Congrats sir, I too received my decision today, and got deferred. I was hoping I would know for sure either way and put an end to all the stress, but looks like i'll be waiting till april now. Ah well, it will be worth it if I end up getting accepted.
we are in the same boat. keep ya head up
congrats man now im just hoping i get my decision back soon and it says i can go blue!!
you go to cc goblue418?
I'll just say congratulations, enjoy!!
Got a verbal from my little brother today. He'll join the 2011 recruiting class. This is a big one, first commit from Renaissance since Carson Butler and Andre Criswell. 5* student.
Congratulations! Your next four years will be awesome! Go blue!
i know many others have congratulated you, but as a proud alum, i think you deserve one more. congratulations.
I had to sign in from my friend's computer just to +1 you for that. Congratulations!
It was always my dream to go to Michigan and getting that acceptance letter was one of the happiest days of my life. (Kinda crazy that they do it by email now)
Count me in for advising on only doing the extremely bare minimum necessary to graduate high school and try to stretch it out for 5 if you can. Also, there's so many great groups on campus, look around and find one that you like and get involved. And not to sound lame, but take full advantage of all of the opportunities that only a place like the University of Michigan can provide.
Enjoy these next 5 years, they go by before you know it. Go Blue!!!
I feel for you man, going to CC and having that gpa and act score, I would have been disappointed as well. I go to Brother Rice and have a lower gpa and act score than you. I was half expecting to get rejected though, so I am at least thankful to still have a shot. I too was already accepted to that other state school, which it seems everyone with a functioning brain cell has been. Here's to gaining acceptance by mid-April, good luck man.
hahaha you too man, you too
especially since I had 2 classes the last semester...
Congrats! It is among the greatest choices I made in my life, and I hope it is for you as well.
Congrats to those of you who have been accepted. I applied early too, but I have not heard back yet. I do live in Ohio, so that may be the reason. Now I will be checking my email every other minute. Right now I'm nervous as hell.
Don't sweat it too much longer...they only released in-state decisions today. My bro in AZ is waiting still.
Only a few days to go. As one Ohio HS grad who went the right way in life, good luck now and in the future.
football team is better than mine... 3-9 was kind of a bummer. Your 2nd home game ever will be under the lights, how cool is that!! Pretty cool. If your roommate is not familiar with the game of football, you must quickly teach and convert him. Immediately, actually. That's your first homework assignment. Go!
Well, one of my best friends has gone with me to tons of home games, and is actually a frequent reader/lurker. Interestingly, our dads roomed together at U of M in their fraternity so it would be cool to continue the legcacy. He knows football.
Cosigned on the football thing, freshman year has ND, Nebraska, and Ohio State at home! I'm pumped! (But 2012 looks like it will suck).
12?!?! Championship games yo!
I know you'll be on a student budget next year, but could you spare me a few bucks on your way to home games?
Here's the gameplan:
1. Join the "91 club". *
2. Join at least one club - probably of your major.
3. Join another one that's not.
4. Explore Ann Arbor.
5. Attend at least one of every sport - including clubs.
* not an actual club, but more a philosophy - get at least 91 on this exam, in case the next is a 89!
Cannot stress the "join a club" recommendation.
I joined a club for my major - ended up getting a $3,000 scholarship from it and it looks good on my resume. Wasn't the most fun, but hey, 3K and a resume builder.
Found a campus job I loved and continued into Grad School here. 4.5 years in it was the best decision of my life and I've met all my best friends through it.
Also attended every sport... you GOTTA do this. Volleyball, softball, soccer are all a blast. Field hockey and baseball are also fun on nice, sunny days. Even if I didn't have a ton of interest in the game, why not take a book, enjoy the weather and watch some of the non-revenue sports for free on a beautiful Ann Arbor fall/spring day?
Also, explore AA. There's so much more than campus... once you're a junior you'll be able to enjoy the wonders of Washington St - ABC, Habana, Peak, Blue Tractor, etc. And then when you're a rich alum you get to live it up on main street. Fun times all around.
Treat everything like you're there temporarily. Yeah, it's obvious that you're not there permanantly, but it's a mind set that will serve you well. And yes, that includes your school work too. There won't be another time when you'll be able to treat some relatively obscure french play as the most important thing in the world. Good luck and congratulations. As a 40-something year old, damn I wish I could go back. Sigh.
sorry for the attention-jack-
I hope I get to join you. I didn't have the common sense to apply early (the essay prompts are awful -- they're the only two essays for any school that I haven't finished yet) so I won't know my status until April
Agreed, those essays were definitely not enjoyable.
I remember getting my acceptance email, the title was "Getting ready for Michigan", before I opened it I knew what it meant. It's funny because earlier that day a friend was asking me about what college I wanted to go to. I told her Michigan but I didn't think I was going to get in. Enjoy a great moment and welcome to the Michigan community.
Congrats White_Tiger. My brother got accepted (I'm sure you knew that).
It seems as if mostly everyone I know at my HS has been accepted, which is awesome, so yes!
This a little ot, but I was wondering if anyone on the blog went to or knows about Macalester College. I just got accepted there. Hearing the UM acceptances make me jealous but class sizes and taiwanese grad student/teacher accents scare me. Definitely plan on grad school at UM.
Our daughter will graduate from there next week. She loved it there. It's a very, very different school than Michigan as I'm sure you know. It's a very small, liberal arts college with kids who are very smart and a little quirky. The class sizes are really small and you get to know profs really well. She doesn't regret her decision one bit. She's had the time of her life for the past 3 1/2 years. (She turned down Michigan's Honors program (too big of a school for her) and some other "big name" schools, large and small, to go there).
My advice: You need to really visit the school to make sure that you will fit in with the personality of the type of kid who goes there. Mpls/St. Paul is a great area and if you can, you really need to visit.
This news from an anonymous fellow MGOBLOGer put a smile on my face. I hope my kids choose to attend Michigan someday. I went there long ago but the memories are still vivid. I'll bet college is complete madness (in a good way) now! West Quad was tremendous but that was a long time ago.
Congrats White Tiger, I hope that when I'm a senior in high school, I will get the same great news.
Man, I wish I could do it all again. Great times.
But then again I do get to put those fancy letters after my name, hahaha.
Wow how things have changed. Back in my day (graduated in '77) they had "rolling" admissions. I applied in late August and got my acceptance letter the first week of October. That made senior year a lot more relaxing and fun.
Can you still request a roommate? Write down Demetrius Hart. When they let him know you are his roomie then no way can he decommit.
College of Engineering bitches!
Congratulations! Like many others here I had the same acceptance a few years ago. As an international student I had an awesome time in Ann Arbor my freshman year but due to a few different factors had to leave the university. For me it was probably the best move and am doing fine now on my way to a top degree at a top university in England and a job sorted at an industry leader for when I graduate in a year and a half (/brag). I still can't help but feel that I missed out at U of M. It was a truly great experience and I hope you take advantage of all it has to offer but keep focus on why you are there - to earn a degree from one of the most prestigious universities in the world. Good luck and Go Blue!
I just got deferred myself, with a 31 on my ACT and 3.83 at a very competitive private school (CC). Hoping good news will sometime come by April, because I really don't want to end up at the other big ten school in Michigan. Please wish all of us who got deferred luck, especially me and GoBlue418!
They do acceptance e-mails now? Thats kind of a bummer, getting my letter was an exciting time. Seems like an e-mail is less 'special' I guess.
Congratulations to all the new Wolverines!
If i do get accepted further down the road, I would definitely prefer letter in the mail than a stupid email. I even got a little excited when i got my acceptance letter from State just because it was a pretty cool to see an acceptance letter.
