« on: April 03, 2006, 11:31:48 AM »
 Just received the email. :(

Can anyone give me the skinny on what's going on with Michigan's waitlist this year ?

I just got the e-mail too, following a 2/14 deferral.   :(
I'm going to Harvard!

They said last year 37 people were admitted off the waitlist, however, that information is useless unless you know how many people are on the waitlist.  Got the email today, and hopped on lsd; don't know whether I should feel glad or anxious that I'm lumped into this group.  The above posters seemed to have great numbers - a lot better than mine. I would guess that some might be taking Harvard over Michigan thus opening up some slots.

From LSN it seems that the waitlist is very big

They have a pretty big waitlist... I think they invite at least 500 to join.

For those of you who know you're going elsewhere or don't want to hold out for Michigan... PLEASE SEND BACK THE WAITLIST FORM SAYING YOU ARE DECLINING THEIR OFFER.  This will help them sort out their WL sooner and expedite decisions for those of us holding out till the bitter end.

Are any of y'all checking the "summer start" or "i can do either" boxes?

What's the difference between the "summer start" and "fall start"except for the time difference?

Does anyone else find it slightly disconcerting that the Michigan WL on LSN is only 10 people smaller than the Georgetown WL? 

And Mich claims it's "small"...   >:(
i like complicated :)

well, it's more like 30 fewer people, but I know what you mean.

Maybe more of michigan's people are on LSN? It seems a little skewed towards the higher ranked schools, especially those in the 4-10 range.
