snail mail. I'm guessing it came on Friday? I am currently overseas so my family told me.

I wouldn't bother. Two reasons:
1)if you look at other discussion boards, it's been confirmed by numerous sources that it isn't actually the case that Stanford gives advantage to students who submit these - it's only the case if it is written by a stanford law graduate. They can tell if your recommendors just inserted a cover page.
2) It will annoy your professors, which is never a good thing.
Hope this helps!

I'm assuming students will take the October LSAT if they do not get in / are not satisfied with Michigan's offer. in response to Lindburgh, I do not think it will lower the standard. Considering UM's median UG gpa of 3.2, it's likely that a MINIMUM GPA of 3.8 just to APPLY will yield very smart students.
While being tied with NW is actually quite unfortunate, it's not like michigan's ACTUAL reputation has fallen (ie.. employment, supreme court clerkships, alumni, reputation survey). it can go up to #6 on US news in a blink if it wants to. Michigan never focused so much on numbers (relative to what it can do), and probably never will.

LSAT requiredment waived for UMICH undergrads!
Expect Michigan's ranking to go up in the coming years. This policy allows Michigan to fill their in-state residency requirement with high GPA people. While boosting median GPA, it doesn't affect their median LSAT (actually, that means median LSAT will go up, since residents pull down their median LSAT). I expect that it will also increase application volume and yield rate. Very smart move.

for those who received columbia/chicago, can you guys post what your numbers are and how you received the message?
do you guys know what the lowest LSAT would be to get waivers from those schools?
