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.

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.

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.

Thanks, Radio, for the info.
Summer start would be fantastic.
I am in the Rockies, so the mail has to get here via horseback.
Har har.

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

big time congrats... reason why you're not applying elsewhere in the t14?

Combination of reasons really but primarily diversity and location.  I did the rankings dance for grad school and didn't find it that useful so I chose other criteria this time.
