Congrats gjrmf!!! You are definitely in. I was able to access the same information just a day or two before receiving the beautiful blue packet. Enjoy making plans to head out to Ann Arbor!
My New Haircut, absolutely SEND SOMETHING ELSE IN. I am getting the impression you only sent in one optional essay (Why Mich). I did the same and felt too "essayed out" to write another. When I got the deferral e-mail I also figured it wasn't necessary to send in more materials and I felt like I didnt have anything else to say. Eventually I got sick of waiting and stressing so I wrote an additional optional essay (the one about what you want to do after law school) I didn't really say anything new in it but I think the tone of the essay was different from the original ones I sent in. (My PS and Why Mich were casual, this one was more professional) I went to decision one week later. I couldn't be happier that I forced myself to write the essay and I couldn't recommend writing one more strongly to anyone who got the deferral e-mail. Even if you don't write about something completely different from the rest of your app, you may present yourself in a different light. At the very least you are showing continued interest and Michigan def likes people whole like Mich. Good Luck!
