Also WLed at michigan. Wrote an LOCI, along with a 'why mich' after being deferred. Of course, I wrote it about wanting to go to a law school with a good football team, so I'm not sure it helped.

NYU is going to beat Michigan this fall, Appalachian State style.

I heart you. Go violets.

Also, I think that the way to interpret this is as "An offer to be on the WL" which you then sign up to do. Ignoring the email means declining the offer of going on the WL. ie: "You can't break up with me if I break up with you first." Leaning in this direction. From a quick scan, it looks like the deferrals going WL tend to have a CCN spot?

Link?

Just pulling that off people's LSNs over on the michigan fighting thread.

However, I understood the email to be an OFFER to be on the waitlist, contingent upon filling out their form. So if I don't fill out their form, I've withdrawn and not placed on the waitlist. I didn't see a "if you aren't interested, let us know" on the form.

Did you write the LOCI when you received the deferral?

no, frankly, since I didn't receive a darrow offer, I wasn't interested. It would've been the only way I would've chosen Mich after getting into Berkeley and UVA.

You're in @ NYU.  You shouldn't even be giving Michigan a second thought.

Dude, are you doing my trolling for me?   :P  Thanx.

I'm glad that LSD got together this morning and decided to big-up my self esteem. It's working.  :-*

You can add me to the in at NYU and WL at Michigan list.

The email was nice, but weird.  They told me to return the wait list reply form within two weeks of receiving "this em", but then didn't say where the form is.  Can someone let me know where I can get this and/or what the link is for the wait list FAQs?  I feel like I'm missing a paragraph or attachment or something.

um, you're missing the first paragraph, which has a link to the "waitlist reply form."

Called Florida and turns out I'm on hold... I thought I'd get right in. Well, FSU was my first choice anyway and they're telling me I'm one of their better applicants so... I like them more because they're catering to my ego and they didn't make me wait :P
