Wanted to ask before I go back and check myself lol


Yeah, it seems like they've gone out in early Nov (sometime around 3-5) every year for the past few years. Last year was Nov 5.

*apologies in advance to rachelac for freaking her out with notifications on this thread :wink:

I got mine, it's nice. Michigan has always been in my top 5, but I feel like they're even higher now lol.

Checking in. Top choice (barring a miracle from UChicago) so here's hoping.

Hi! Question here. I don't see a place on Michigan's application to submit a diversity statement, nor do I see an easy essay question from their optional essays to use as a diversity statement (maybe number 7, but not exactly). Am I missing something? What did others who are submitting diversity statements to other schools do?

Over at 7Sage they said to use #7.

How many at-home game days are there? Five?

THANK YOU! Tbh Michigan's community sounds a lot like the residential college I lived in during my first two years of undergrad. I had a blast with it, so I'm super interested in the school and feel I could really thrive there.

Anyone else getting a message that says "A link you are trying to access is old or obsolete" when they try to access the status checker?

Yes! Even when you find the link on their website and not via email. It says out of service or something if you use that method. Hopefully it will be back up soon.
