I have been deferred from the early response program at UMichigan. I am an International student attending a CBSE curriculum school. I called up the admissions office and they did not tell me the reason for being rejected.
I am someone who really considers UMichigan as her one and only choice.I love the school and I really want to be there. Where as the student part is considered I am in the Top 5-10% of my class. The curriculum I have been taking is one of the most rigorous in the world. My essay's were good according to my teacher's and my family (I told them about myself and about I would like to pull all nighter's at the Shapiro library and describing my characteristics) and the school spirit I have with in me (which Michigan is popular for).
I did not choose Michigan because it is highly ranked for my course by US News but because it fits my requirements and I want to go there. Where as there are many people who go to Michigan just because their precious Ivies reject them.
SO my question, what can I possibly do in order to gain admission in UMich. I cannot send UMich any grades from my school as I have already sent them the most recent grades from my School and the next exam is in March (whose results will be out in July 2010) and where as my SAT score is concerned I have made a leap from 1500 to 1980 and I cannot take the January SAT since I am preparing for my March (board) exams which I cannot possibly screw up as they are very important and tough.
My EC's are very good . I have been a post holder for the past two years (when the post's are actually given out to students). I am the head of two Student organizations and part of the computer club.
Michigan is my dream and I ask you people to help me achieve it. What can I do in order to get in ? Please give me specific information on how to go about this process.
