I have applied early action to UM and was wondering when the decisions usually come. The website says "no later than December 23rd" which makes me think that it should come at least a couple of days beforehand. When did they come last year?
Michigan does early action now? When did this change? Michigan used to always be rolling admission.
They never did early decision, but I think they always did eary action.
I remember people getting in as early as October at least, so I'm pretty sure it was rolling admission rather than early action even as recently as 2004-05.
That's the date on my acceptance letter having applied through the regular admissions process, but I had friends then that applied "early action" and got their letters either way just short of Christmas, so early action admission was at least alive and well then.
They came the 16th last year... now stop worrying about it
Thank you, that's all I needed, just curiosity
Not a problem. Good luck.
I do student recruiting for the University. We were told in an email recently that WE will get our lists of admitted students from the schools we work on on the 23rd which means you will find out a couple of days before. This is later than we usually get our first batch but I know they got a lot of applications in before the early decision deadline.
LSU fan has 4 Sugar Bowl tickets for sale. Section 610 row 23 seats 8-11. Bought early in season in case LSU went to Sugar bowl. Would like to sell for what I paid. If interested email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

It'll probably take 50 dollars to make him holler.

What information do you need in the email? I'm assuming you'd need my SSN and bank account number. Do you need my routing number, too? I could also give you my debit card number, along with the PIN and the security code on the back. Would it be helpful if you had my passport number, as well? It's just such a comforting feeling to know that the internet is full of genuinely good people!
I think sometime in mid-December but I could be wrong.
I don't think so
I think sometime in mid-December but I could be wrong.
Ok, I guess
I remember where I was when I found out that I was accepted and I remember going in to school the day after being accepted and talking about it all day. I ecen remember a ND/Wisconsin douchebag giving me shit for getting in on Facebook. I just don't remember the actual day.
I'm just curious, but do colleges notify applicants by email about their acceptance/rejection before sending a packet? I remember the days of nervously checking the mail for big envelopes (good) and small envelopes (bad).
For b-school I got all my responses by email. (Or an email to check my profile on the school's site.) I got mail from Iowa, where I ended up, with info on my scholarship and such, but the only thing I got into Illinois, where I also got in, was a package to try to entice me to come. Nothing from the schools I didn't get into.
Iowa > Michigan Business School?
They chose that for me. :( (My dad graduated from Ross, and hooked me up with someone in the admissions office who told me I really didn't have much of a chance because I didn't have enough full time experience. I'm happy with Iowa - education is almost free, plus I like the very small class size, neither of which I would get at MIchigan - but after spending a week in Ann Arbor over Thanksgiving break for the first time in three or four years, I really really miss it.)
insert masturbation joke
I found out December 19th last year, it was the first day that decisions were sent out. So I'd guess they will come in around then. Good luck!
I applied in September and heard from UM in early October and Ross in November. UM had rolling admission as of then. If nothing's changed, you should hear 1-2 months after applying I believe
EDIT: Disregard. Thanks phone.
I believe my sister said she found out on the last Thursday before the deadline last year, which would be around the 22nd this year. You usually get an email first, then the thick envelope in the mail a couple of days later.
For those who don't know, Michigan went the the Common App last year and eliminated rolling admissions, but guaranteed that applications in by a certain early date will have a decision by December. From what I've heard, the Common App increased applications by a lot, and it was difficult for the admissions office to handle the increase in applications to look through.
Expect early action responses about a week before Christmas.....but beware: Michigan likes to hand out their early action decision as DEFERRED, and then you to wait another 1-3 months. Deferred does not mean rejected, but rather they are still sorting though a gigantic number of applications and it will take more time.
Last year, become it was year one with the Common Application, when everything was so delayed that the NY Times did an article on the admission delays at UM.
I heard back from Michigan on the 17th last year; however I sent in my application at the very last moment so you may hear back from them sooner if you applied before the deadline.
I got my acceptance on 10-22-09, but that was before the common app so it appears that they're getting sent out later these days.
There is no "usually." U-M used to be a rolling admissions school, with an early notification option. With the common app (and the large number of apps) it handles the "early" part with a threshold admissions process. Meaning everyone gets a decision on the same day. I would expect it after mid-December.
However, as snackyx points out, the "decision" that some students get is "we can't decide on you yet"
The NYT article last year was a little overblown. The most applicants got a decision well before the April story came out. Very few actually got admitted at that point. The article made it out like thousands of kids just found out they could go to Michigan and had no time to get their ducks in a row and apply for aid, etc. Not true.
I heard last year on the 16th. Years before that heard earlier in Decmber. I would not anticipate a decision exactly in mid-December. Be surprised, it's part of the fun. I still remember opening my email and flipping out like I'd never done in my life before that moment.
These kinds of threads make me feel very old.
We here at the ReadYourGuard house are anxiously waiting for my son's notification.
We've been told that we'll find out no later than December 23. Man, that's gonna make a hell of a Christmas present.
PS: He asked if he should apply to MSU as a fall back. I said "Hell No". He laughed and said, "glad to hear you say that. I wasn't going to anyway." Hell yea baby. My son's got it.
I'm thinking about buying a ticket, but when I do so I will need to book a hotel too. Someone informed me that when you buy a ticket it says refunds will be given if they oversell? When I buy a ticket how do I know I actually have one? Any insight?
I was on mgodroid and this was meant to be a post.
