I had no plans on applying to any t14s because i knew i had no chance (162/3.6 URM engineering) but U Mich sent me a letter saying they would love (love was underlined (handwritten)) to review my app. So i applied thinking why would they love to review an app they would reject. Well they did and my initial thoughts were correct, but oh how they played with my emotions. Oh well, ive got into some pretty damn good schools anyways. Best of luck to all of you!
Dinged from UMich today. Oh well, their loss.
Yup, they'll be just fine and i'll be just fine getting tan in LA
