Yes, Michigan was by far my first choice. It was my dream school, and I thought I would not be able to get in after my June LSAT debacle.

Thanks, everyone, for your support.

Hey, do you think they would UPS it if we're not in the US? Cuz today I got a letter from the UPS saying they tried to deliver...I'm not expecting anything, and it's origin is  YPSILANTI, MI, US sent Nov 22...do I have a reason to be excited????

You may, because I'm not in the US and I got the letter from Michigan today, it was dated 11/21.  God, I'm so excited.  I was literally shaking when I read the letter.

Yeah, besides the letter, a blue filing folder, cd, and a sheet with info on it that I send in with my deposit.  UPS.

Out of curiosity, did you write any of the optional essays?
 

I wrote two, technically three.  I was on academic probation for two semesters, and so I saw that as a chance to explain why my grades aren't representative of my abilities.

The two I officially answered were Essays 4 and 7, hardship and diversity (and my diversity essay did not at all mention being black, btw).

I didn't get anything about $$$, but with my numbers they could hardly throw merit scholarships my way.  And they can't do Fin Aid until after Jan. 1st.

Post by: eiffelgirl on November 25, 2005, 08:13:58 AM
Numbers : 173 LSAT, and a GPA slightly higher than yours, radioflire. But it is a summer admission, so if you applied for fall admission only you might be getting the letter slightly later... or at least it would seem to make sense, right? although I am completely with you, waiting is horrible! :( I hope you'll get an answer soon.
Title: Re: Holy [email protected]#$%$ !!! In at MICHIGAN!!!!
Post by: radioflire on November 25, 2005, 08:20:47 AM
I applied for Summer start, too. Also, I'm in Indiana, for Elle (even though I haven't heard).

I applied ED to Chicago, but getting into Michigan would allow me to sleep a little more soundly till December 30.

Answers to some of the questions:

I'm not in the US, it was UPSed, so that's probably why it got here so fast (in spite of the UPS driver's retardedness...don't even get me started ::))

I applied Fall start only, and that's what I got.

For soft factors: I thought they were pretty average...honors thesis, named scholar program at my uni, community service stuff, always worked P/T during school, WE abroad. My #s are floating around I just don't feel like posting more info until (if???) I get into other schools.

I looked at the AA weather averages and it really frightens me. Yikes that's cold. But then I took the virtual tour on their website and I was amazed...so many of the photos look straight out of Harry Potter! It looks GORGEOUS. Right now I'm on Cloud 9  ;D

ann arbor is sweet... the law school is beautiful... and certainly by sometime in November, it's cooooollllddddd

Yeah, summer start was definitely somewhat appealing to me.  I think, though, I wish now I just applied for Fall because I want a nice vacation before I go to LS.  Maybe I'll just quit my job earlier =).

Congratulations to everyone! Michigan Law is a great school, imo.

Dizz, congrats! I remember wishing you luck a few weeks ago on your Michigan app.

I got into Michigan as well, and it's my top choice so I guess this hectic process is over for me.

FWIW, I went to Michigan undergrad, and I loved every minute of UM and Ann Arbor. Most people I know loved their experiences there. Hope to see some of you there.

Wish everyone the best of luck w/ their apps!

Have y'all checked out the admitted students site yet? What do you think of the suggested reading?

It's hilarious that one of the items on the "suggested reading" list was your own personal statement.

Thanks Maui and right back at ya.

Have y'all checked out the admitted students site yet? What do you think of the suggested reading?

it's just a list of books that you could read if you're compulsive and feel like you need to read something before you start law school... they are pretty explicit about this

Hey Pancho, try not to worry too much.  I haven't heard anything and I'd like to think that I have at least somewhat of a good shot at Michigan.  Hopefully we'll hear something this week.

Regarding the "complete" notification from Michigan - I also never received one. Just the acceptance. For anyone out there who is worried about whether their app is complete, I would not hesitate to give a call to the admissions office. They are very friendly and efficient.

Hoping to find an acceptance from Michigan for the past two mail days, I have opened my mailbox each day and found a large, white, teasing envelope filled with a brochure from a law school to which I'd never apply.  Ahhhhhh. 
 
I have realized that checking LSD makes receiving mail somewhat painful, yet pleasurable (and perhaps even occasionally sublime?).

Thank you, LSD. Thank you.

I'm not really sure, I've never done a credit check on my cat...

Maybe she has some real estate tucked away that I don't know about? ;D

Now that you mention it, I think I may have seen her place on MTV Cribs: The Feline Edition. It was a nice place complete with a Subzero that has kitty level milk dispenser in the door. You might want to consider moving in with her, just watch your head passing through the 3 foot high doorways  ;)

Uhh... you received the call from Harvard and it's only the first week in December.  Being concerned is fine and healthy, but "starting to freak out" suggests you may need to step away for a while and do something else.  I don't want to sound like one of those kids who's always telling the other kids to stop complaining about their high lsat scores not being quite high enough (because that seems uncool and everyone has the right to set his own bar), but it's not as if, in the end, anyone will care if you got into Michigan or Harvard in December as opposed to January or March.  You'll get in, that's what matters.  Now, in January/February, yeah, at that point "freaking out" may be a wise decision, but we're only one month into the real start of the decisions phase and you've received the call that every law school applicant (whether s/he is applying to HLS or not) would love to receive.

So, uhm, chill (this is to me as much as it is to you).

There aren't much more exciting feelings than your first acceptance. Wow.

p.s.--Mailman, if you're listening, I forgive you.

Bond, we'd love to have you here.  Please let me know if you'd like to speak to any current students about the Michigan Law community.

My note was:  "Your work experience and expertise will be an invaluable background for you with a JD. I hope you'll join us."

Interesting that she was saying, your work experience will help you _after_ law school, not during. Oh well!

She writes these things all day long; it's probably hard to keep coming up with good stuff.  Don't read too much into it.

I assume it's the same as the fall start weekend.  Check the admitted students' site.

The admitted students website contains very little information about summer starters - and the info. in provides regarding orientation events is from last year.
Hope they'll update it soon.

On the admitted students' site under "A Little Light Reading."  They say that it is totally optional, and that they only provided the list because people asked for one.

WooHoo!!! I got word from Michigan...






that my file is comeplete  ;)

Today was 6 weeks since the App Received email so I called since I never received a Complete notice.  They said that I was complete as of Novermber 1st and that a complete notification should have been sent out. I asked to verify my address. It is correct.

Several people who were complete 11/1 or after have received their acceptances. How much longer before I should start to think ding? Or maybe I should just think that USPS lost it just like the Complete notification  ;D

Hmmm, that's interesting.  I am assuming that they took care of all of the ED applicants first (rejections, acceptances, whatever).  I went complete just on 11/21 and I got a letter in the mail, so I am basically waiting.  Did you apply ED or were you just ahead of the game and applied early in the game?

I was not ED since it is binding and requires a summer start. I am not able to start until next fall since my wife needs to finish her masters during the summer before we move.

For what it's worth, I am a HUGE splitter (3.0/170+).

i think this is your "scholarship essay"... so answer the question as best as you can... if you cover stuff you've already covered in other parts of your app, i don't think that really matters... i'm not sure if i'm going to apply or not... i guess i probably should...

My partner is all about going to Michigan so I'm definitely applying.  Besides I cannot afford to take out loans for law school with the student loan debt we already have from undergrad and two grad degrees (it's scary)!  Anyway I suppose it's not a hard essay to write, just happens to be a bit redundant from my other essays they already have.  Since they will read the whole file again I just hope I can sound engaging rather than repetitive  :P

Thanks so much!  And believe me, if we meet up in AA, I'LL buy the beers!!

(hmmm - AA and beers; doesn't really fit, does it?  Guess I should say Ann Arbor instead :))

Ha.  I don't know if all this anticipation is good for me.  I've only heard back from one school and I'm so jazzed about it that I feel like I won't give other schools a fair chance, assuming that other schools accept me.   :P

But you really can't go wrong with UM.

I haven't gotten the housing packet, and my acceptance letter was dated 11/28.

For you all summer-starters out there, are you guys planning to live in the LC after the summer?

I'm not planning on living in the Lawyer's Club, looking for a May to May lease off campus instead.  If it were open in the summer, I would have given it a lot more thought.  i just hate moving and refuse to move my stuff around twice.  Apartment search is looking pretty bad so far, can't seem to find a decent 1 bedroom close to the Quad for less than 900/month.  I know that may seem cheap to some of you, but it's rather insane compared to Oxford, Ohio.

900/month? how long is the lease?
Title: Re: Holy [email protected]#$%$ !!! In at MICHIGAN!!!!
Post by: tier 7 hopeful on December 07, 2005, 07:31:38 PM
varies.  Some 12 month, some 9 month, some month to month.  My point was that I'm paying something like 450/month for my apt now and its not too bad...900/month is like sticker shock to an Ohioan

Keep in mind i'm talking about living alone in a 1 bedroom.  I think I may have seen some efficiencies/studios around 600/mo

Also a lot of good cheaper options on a free bus line outside the university.  Seems to be a lot of options and a wide range of prices.

Living with a roommate obviously drives down the cost quite a bit as well, but who wants to do that?
Title: Re: Holy [email protected]#$%$ !!! In at MICHIGAN!!!!
Post by: Hobert on December 08, 2005, 04:41:24 AM
I'm surprised cost of living is even that high for Ann Arbor, since I always thought it was similar to Charlottesville, and students apts in Cville are $300-$600...I guess it's the proximity to a city thing?  This might be a factor in deciding between UMich and UVa (if that's a decision I get to make, rather than one UVa makes for me :))

Last summer I was pricing out house in the Ann Arbor area as an alternative to getting an apartment (just in case I got in). I noticed that housing within Ann Arbor proper is much more expensive than in nearby areas. It seems that quite a few people with good cash flow in the Detroit area seem to pick Ann Arbor for their homes.
Title: Re: Holy [email protected]#$%$ !!! In at MICHIGAN!!!!
Post by: loveless on December 08, 2005, 07:20:36 AM
Ann Arbor has the highest housing costs in Michigan; average house (and most of them are small) is around $300K.

As a current Ann Arbor resident, there is incredibly affordable housing if you're willing to go off campus a bit (as I do). I live in an apartment complex about a mile south of the law quad and its full of law students. You can ride any city bus for free with a UMich ID, and the busses are quite nice and generally reliable. The first campus stop on the bus line from my complex is the LQ, and it's about a 3 minute bus ride there/20 minute walk. I room with some people and this semester paid $250/month.

If you want to be right on campus, you're going to shell out a lot more. But it's going to be loud -- right across from the law quad are fraternities that have obnoxious parties. If you go a little father away, it's a little bit cheaper, a lot quieter and you can just milk the AATA transit system as a student.

Or you could live in the LQ, which is expensive I'm sure. There's also the Guild House across the street, where a lot of law students live. I don't know much about it, but it would be worth asking someone about.

Wow, I am impressed as well. When people first mentioned getting personal notes on their application invitations/waivers, someone scoffed hinting at the use of an autopen. With every new tidbit from this cycle that comes out, it becomes more and more obvious that one was not used.  :)

Hopefully something will come for me soon, I am quite intrigued by the Doom style walkthrough of the school. If I don't get in, perhaps someone will let me borrow their copy, so I can check it out.  ;)

I haven't received it yet.  But I'm overseas and only just yesterday received the Complete letter they'd sent me by regular mail on Nov. 1st, nearly two weeks after I'd received the Acceptance letter sent by UPS.

Hey! What was the date of your acceptance vs. the date you received, and what was the date of your complete letter vs. date you received? I'm overseas too (Asia) and have been puzzled about how the timing will work for me. It's difficult to obsess and have such a huge time delay on top of everything. My UMich "complete" letter took 10 days to arrive. It said I would receive notice about my ED app by the 15th. Well, they have until tomorrow, I guess. I'm still fearing the worst...

You can't really judge my France.  It may be a "leader," but the French are inefficient and really... not lazy, but not exactly the nose-to-the-grindstone kind of people.  But, my complete letter was dates 11/1 and I received it 12/06.  My acceptance was dated 11/21 and I received it 11/24.

I'm in! And "Holy [email protected]$%$!!!" was exactly my reaction too -- after reading this thread for days and never getting anything in the mail, I'd pretty much lost hope, and all of a sudden today there it was -- huge package staring at me from inside my mailbox.

I submitted a diversity statement and LSAT addendum with my app, and recently also submitted a Why Michigan essay, as a last ditch attempt to gain some favor with the adcomms -- looks like it paid off =)

This may be a *dumb* question, but does the mail get delivered on X-mas eve?  If so, it would be a great present to receive an acceptance then, but horrible for---you know, that other, bad thing.

What exactly is a diversity essay and do all schools allow those extras to your apps?  How does that work?

A diversity statement is an essay about how you could possibly contribute to the diversity of the entering class. Usually you write about unique life experiences you've had, your ethnic background, unique career history, or anything else that you believe makes you different from the other applicants. Not all schools ask for supplemental essays. Michigan asked for upto two out of a list of 8 or so, which included a diversity essay and an LSAT/GPA essay. I submitted the Why Michigan essay to them later through email after I asked them about it first. I was getting concerned at not having heard back and I wanted to show them that Michigan was my top choice.

I just got in summer start!  As far as I'm concerned, it's a good thing: I'd really rather not spend another summer being bored out of my mind. 

A lot of people credit Chicago's quarter system (and the additional grades it entails) with being the reason for its disproportionate representation among federal clerkships.

(And quick question: are you a Penn grad too?)


Yes ma'am. SAS Class of dec 04 (but originally class of 05).

I'm just considering the whole practical side of it. Getting out my lease which ends August 1 (or finding a subletter anyway), moving house to michigan where I've never been and don't know anyone. It's a little bit overwhelming. But I'm extremely excited about the school itself so I go back and forth. Obviously I'm still waiting on other apps...
Title: Re: Holy [email protected]#$%$ !!! In at MICHIGAN!!!!
Post by: jujunyc on December 27, 2005, 01:57:42 PM

I hear you on that.   :-\  For me, finding someone to cover the lease isn't as much of a problem as it is finding a place with hardwood floors that'll let me have my zoo.  I have a few good landlord references, because I'm very anal retentive about cleanliness, but I'm not sure it'll help.

I suppose what I'll save on NY rent in about two months might cover the cost of moving (since I've amassed an embarrassing amount of furniture). What kinda zoo are we talking here? LOL

I opened up the mailbox today to find a piece of mail from Michigan. However, since it was not a big envelope I figured it was a rejection. Thankfully it wasn't. Instead, it was my missing complete notification that I never received. The letter is dated November(over the phone they said I was complete 11/1), but was postmarked January 5th.

You're going to China?  That's so wonderful!  Where are you headed?  (My family's firm has a branch in Shanghai. I came thisclose to working there before going to LS.)

I am going to Nanjing for a business trip. Fortunately, I arrive Saturday night and will have all of Sunday to explore a bit before the meetings start on Monday. I am quite excited. I just returned from India last week on a family trip. Previously I had never crossed a major ocean. Now I am going to Asia twice in a month.  ;D

thx all... i'm not sure what i'm going to do... this process keeps getting tougher and tougher (in a very, very good and truly unexpected way... i never imagined having all these truly amazing options)... the darrow is a ton--really an incredible offer... and michigan is a sweet school... it will definitely be something to consider... i did sort of hope to get out of ann arbor (and the state of michigan) for the next 3 years... but on the other hand, i do love ann arbor... i think umich will make my "final cut" and i'll just have to go from there... it's going to be hard to turn down all these different opportunities... but alas, i must turn all but one down...

Congrats Bloomich and fatcat!  Go got yourself some champagne or something!  I spent quite a bit of time just saying "wow" after I got the call from Dean Zearfoss last month.  It's quite a big draw!  I also was hoping to get out of the midwest for law school, but as I plan on public interest the scholarship is pretty wonderful.  So Michigan is topping my list at the moment (though only time will tell).

So far Dean Zearfoss has been really helpful answering my questions about the Darrow.  In fact she even asked around about some questions I had about the public schools, which is wonderful.  From what I gather people really only turn it down for HYS and they don't always do that.  After all, only a dozen or so people get the Darrow each year, hundreds get into HYS.  Just food for thought.

This is funny. I also got the darrow, full scholarship.

How many full darrows do they give out each year? I saw 5 on this board already, including myself.

I think someone mentioned that they give out 12...but since most of the people getting them are probably considering HYS, I assume that they need to give it more than 12, to get 12 to accept it...

What are your numbers btw?

Not that crazy, the deferral was obviously a yield protect. Someone with those numbers makes a very strong all or nothing candidate. You either take a gamble and offer them money or defer them to yield protect.

I don't understand the idea of deferral for yield protect...if you are doing yield protect why not reject them?  That way your acceptance rates goes down...you're gonna have to "risk" accepting them, or reject them eventually anyway... ??? ???

Is anyone who's admitted so far planning to go to either of the Preview Weekends? I'm in Calif and I'm planning to go to the first one, but the earliest flights don't get into DTW until 3:30-4pm. Does this leave enough time to get to Ann Arbor for the first day of the Preview Weekend, or should I fly in the day before?
Title: Re: Holy [email protected]#$%$ !!! In at MICHIGAN!!!!

DTW is about 20 minutes-half hour at the most from Ann Arbor. They're about 20 miles apart. I don't know when preview weekend is, but if it's during the week I'm home from D.C. for spring break, I'll stop by. Lord knows I'll be back in AA trying to find a single for next fall.... Oh, to think I was going to be leaving my maize and blue home. Not this year.

I don't know when preview weekend is, but if it's during the week I'm home from D.C. for spring break, I'll stop by. Lord knows I'll be back in AA trying to find a single for next fall.... Oh, to think I was going to be leaving my maize and blue home. Not this year.

I believe the preview weekends are 3/9 and 3/23

This is probably a stupid question, but are preview/admitted students weekends only for ppl that got accepted and are unsure if they want to attend?  I know I'm attending and have visited twice and signed a lease on a 1 bedroom apt already...so would attending the preview weekends be pointless for me?  What do they do at these things?

Not having the privilege of being admitted to Michigan (yet?), I can only speculate... but I think they tell you what to expect, what classes are like, registering, etc. etc. etc. Basically the nuts and bolts... so I would think it would be worthwhile, unless you would incur great expense to attend.

where will you be living, tier7? are you a summer starter? 

Any other summer starters thinking of living in the LC??
Title: Re: Holy [email protected]#$%$ !!! In at MICHIGAN!!!!
Post by: tier 7 hopeful on January 23, 2006, 11:32:23 PM
Yeah I'm a summer starter, and I can't wait.

I got a nice 1 bedroom apt off campus thats halfway between the Law Quad and downtown, <10 min walk to Hutchins.  After getting over the initial sticker shock, I'm very happy with what I ended up with.

FYI in case you didn't know, the Lawyer's Club isn't open in the summer-you'd have to sublet a place off campus for the summer then move in.  And I've heard there's a real problem with finding a sublet that extends through the exam period in late August, potentially leaving you homeless for the most stressful part of law school.
Title: Re: Holy [email protected]#$%$ !!! In at MICHIGAN!!!!
Post by: umichbaby on January 24, 2006, 08:40:36 AM
yup. i know about the summer situation.  So, i take it that you won't be living in the LC for the second semester...
i was just curious to see how many summer starters would opt to live in the LC after the summer.  I have heard people saying that there is a disadvantage, esp. for summer starters, to not live in the LC..
Title: Re: Holy [email protected]#$%$ !!! In at MICHIGAN!!!!
Post by: thenextstep on January 24, 2006, 09:34:55 AM
I've been talking with a recent alum about Michigan who was a summer starter and she always lived in family housing.  In fact she never recommended nor mentioned that LC was a better option (though I suppose I did not specifically ask).  Now her situation may be different since she was married to start with, but she also talked a lot about how close she was to her classmates, especially the other summer starters. 

Not to knock the LC or anything, but really aren't you ready to live in your own place rather than a dorm?  I'm sure it's nice but I don't think you'll miss out by not living there.

VERY unexpected. I wasn't confident they would look favorably on my LSAT, which I took three times...

Thanks again. But I just checked your LSN and you retook the LSAT after getting a 169! That's pretty amazing.

It's insane that you didn't get in to BC, but I really do think that law schools are loathe to take students who did their undergrad at the same institution. I have no evidence to back that up beyond browsing at LSN and my own experience last year applying to my undergrad's law school, having scores that were well above their 75 percentile, and still getting rejected. Ouchie.

It was a tough decision, and I worked my ass off studying and prepping and making sure the second time was at a better test center, and I had amazing proctors the second time around, and it all worked out, but it required giving up the rest of my life for a few months just to dedicate to that silly test. If I had scored 170 in June, I don't think I would have retaken, as crazy as that is.

But having done it myself, I know what you must have gone through, and I definitely give you props.

The whole BC was a total mystery and a bruise to my ego, but gives me an excellent reason to go tell the Development office to go shove it next time they call for a handout.

Hehehe.. good point! I'll remember that when the alumni association starts bugging me for $$. I do feel very vindicated because my T50 alma mater wouldn't accept me last year and now I've been accepted at better schools.

No, 1Ls are divided into four sections, ABCD (Summer starters), EFGH, IJKL, MNOP.  There are approx. 90 people in each section, and I think within the one section, i.e. ABCD, there are 45 in AB, and 45 in CD.  The sections are all randomly assigned.  Of course, I would prefer to be in IJKL or MNOP, but I guess some smartie just created these "nicknames" for the sections.

No offense intended towards you, but I think you are further proof that Michigan looks deeply at each applicant, not just at the numbers. Your soft factors are very nice.

No offense taken Hobert. I totally agree with you. I was REALLY floored that I was accepted. I probably would not have applied there if not for the fact that my wife received a fee waiver from them and convinced me I might have a shot at Mich given their slightly "different" evaluation focus. Actually she was convinced I would be a strong candidate.... I though she was on crack!

I do think my soft factors (age, work, my fellowship, the fact that I could coat-tail on my wife), plus some very strong recs and (I think) a rocking PS were what did it. I guess thats obvious though... since I CLEARLY didn't get in on the numbers  ;D

Honestly.... I think it bodes well for Mich that they DO take the time to dig deeper. Makes me think thier classes must be full of some pretty interesting folks.

Now if I can just clear the money hurdle.... Michigan for two, with no scholarships = around $200-300k. OUCH

For two?

And yeah, most T14s it's not that much of a big deal.  Just work Big Law for 3 years and provided you are good at not spending money on pointless things (my downfall), it's all gone.

He mentioned his wife received a fee waiver from Michigan, so I am guessing she is the second.  ;)

Yup, both I and my wife are in the mix for this fun. The money factor is going to be a big one for us. I'm going to be doing env law (its really an extension of my current career), so I'm not exactly gonna be rolling in $$$ there. Add on top the $150k in loans we already have in loan debt (we both have undergrad and grad degrees from Stanford), the question of total manageable debt is a biggie.

So far we are both in at L&C with 35k/year between us, both in at UW (where I think I have a pretty good shot at one of the new Gates Public Service Law scholarships - Full tuition plus living expenses, books, etc.), and both in at Mich.

We'll see what our financial aid looks like... but considering L&C would be about 45k in tuition for both of us, and UW with the scholarship would be roughly the same, Michigan's 210k in tuition alone (before any grants, etc) is a pretty high bar to reach. I just don't know if going from #27 to #8 is worth bringing the total debt to the $400k range (with living expenses and interest on the existing loans).

I know this is really a topic for a different thread, I apologize, but I'd be interestd in any thoughts anyone feels like tossing out.

sigh

It's not, with that amount of debt you are really going to limit your career choices. You might have to go into BIGLAW or an area of law you don't care for simply because you can't turn down the paycheck with nearly half of a million dollars in debt. Second, #27 will still take you anywhere you want in the country if you get good grades (which you'd need to do anywhere). Finally, how do you save for retirement or for a house or anything with that much debt. By the time you've payed off your law school loans you'll be paying for your kids college tuition. Now, I wouldn't turn down UM for a T4 but for another top school, I think it makes much more sense to attend the school that's not going to sink you with debt.

which means I won't really be able to afford to send my own kids to college.   
 



I'm planning on my kids getting the same deal I did... a relativly small amount to get started off, then you're on your own kiddos.

Nothing makes you appreciate the value of money than making your OWN long term investment in yourself.

That being said... this much debt makes me worry about having enough funds to get em old enough to get out the door!  ;)

In at Michigan.  Received an a cappella CD as a gift. That was very nice of Sarah Z.! She's so cool!

Seriously? Why did they send you an a cappella CD? (you're not talking about the CD-ROM, are you?)

I remember someone who was accepted in the fall (around mid-Nov) posted about receiving an a capella CD as well, although I think s/he was a member of an a capella group during undergrad.

It is tough. Michigan was my "Dream" school since I began to even ponder the law school idea. It was the only school I visited prior to applying. On the other hand, Northwestern has offered me a very nice scholarship and I am waiting to hear back from another one of my top choices with regards reconsidering my scholarship offer. I am torn in multiple directions.

Congrats Hobert!!  I know you've been waiting a long time!  Come to Michigan, all the cool kids are doing it...  Okay that might not be true, but I'm thinking it's where I'm headed (unless I don't like my visit or G-town makes me an offer similar to the Darrow somehow), so you can join me!

Congrats, Hobert! I definitely sympathize with your dilemma... got a sweet scholarship from Northwestern and now debating whether I should turn it down for Michigan, which seems like it could be my dream school. Michigan offered a scholarship too, but it's about half of NU's. I guess I'll know more when I go to the preview weekend! Good luck making your decision.
