I got a call yesterday the Michigan admissions office that assuaged basically all of my worries about Michigan. I have to say Michigan does a better job than anyone in the whole wooing process, and I think I'm basically set on Michigan now unless Northwestern rocks my world.

What worries did you have, Shark Week? I'm just curious.

That I wouldn't be able to pay for it, mostly. I'm a filthy poor with suboptimal credit. But we talked about financial aid options, and it sounds like one way or another Michigan makes sure you can borrow what you need.

Michigan was weird with me wrt the financial aspect. I'm a poor too...and Michigan was the only school that didn't give me money.  I'm sure I could have haggled money out of them with my other money offers from peer schools, but it really did strike me as odd that I didn't get a good amount (aka less than 10gs only guaranteed for 1L) from them.  It made me wonder how they figured that stuff out...bc CLS is cheap as hell and even their gave me a guaranteed amount of money for all 3 years.

For what it's worth, all Michigan financial aid need offers are assumed to be good for three years unless your circumstances change significantly in between one of the three years.  (Getting a 2L firm job may affect your 3rd year aid somewhat, for instance).

Hi possum and ender and the rest!

I'm the one who started that facebook group, sorry it automatically set itself up on the Michigan network, but I opened it up to everyone now. Glad I stumbled on this thread to get the feedback!

Does anyone know about parking near the law school? I'll be living too far to walk to the school.

Hi Dagny.  Congrats!  I will most likely be joining you in the summer, and I am really looking forward to it!

There's plenty of parking, but you're either feeding the meter all day or paying $.40/30 minutes.  People who live nearby will often also sell a space in their driveway (check on craigslist or on lawopen, the school email clusterfuck listserv, when you get here).

Ahhh sorry guys! I tried to change the Facebook group to be open to everyone, but I got a message from Facebook saying that student academic groups have to be network specific. They didn't let the change go through, but I hope it won't be a problem. All the class of XX groups from the past few yers have been open to only those on the Michigan network too so I figure it shouldn't be a big deal. But hey, if someone figures out how to open it up to everyone in another group, we can all just join that one :)

Hey Dagny.

No it's all good.  It'll fill up as people get their uniqueIDs. 

I just had mine since last year since I was admitted last year and deferred.

BTW, you guys should check this out.

Very cool, but is it possible to see a video of Michigan without soaring orchestral music? I'm getting a bit tired of it.

Actually, that's our official score.  It plays in the background all the time - you get used to it. 



(gahh, I hate exams.  10 hours into a 24hr. take-home, and I really wish someone would just shoot me in the face.)
I was referring to your intellectual penis. Which is quite robust.

Jolie is creeping up on me.
