UMich Residency
« on: September 15, 2005, 07:20:23 AM »
Does anybody know exactly HOW much of a factor residency is in UM admissions?  I'm a Michigan resident who got a fee waiver and an invitation.  The website says that people who get waivers have about a 60% chance of admission.  Will residency boost that any higher?

Their info also says about 25% of their students are residents, which means you'd get some boost for sure.  Most state schools consider resident and non-resident separately, even if there are not specific quotas.  I'd say you'll have a fantastic chance of getting in (like 75-80% in my rough estimate) and if you wow them, you'll probably get some money.

UM does have an in-state quota for admissions (25%, I believe). I imagine that residency is a bit of a boost. Not a big boost, but with your numbers it could make the difference in getting in.

i'd say you have a good shot... 25% is correct, which is huge... your letter from umich talks about how you have an advantage as a "Michigander"
