Srry somehow i was not able to post it all.
Here is the message:
We hope to begin mailing admission decisions in the middle of March. To ensure that your letter arrives without delay, please go to myUM to the Update personal and biographical information section located in the lower right hand corner of the page. please verify that mailing address is correct. If you need to make any changes, please do so within the next few days.
Could this mean that they have made a decision? Has anyone gotten a similar email?
I got my acceptance and a full scholarship, a week after they sent the EA. I applied RD but I guess they really want me. Never heard of such an email though. Maybe they are sending you a hint.... Be happy!
I AMMM lol
However i havent gotten an email directly telling me, im in?
that worries me :P
I doubt they would worry about telling me their sending out a decision soon if theyve rejected me. its just well, no need to get a person all excited if there gonna turn them down.
Movie Buff - you got a full scholarship offer in the mail? That's interesting. I thought everyone got at most a 3/4 scholarship offer in the mail and those who qualified got an invitation to attend the Singer Scholarship (full tuition) competition weekend, which isn't until the end of March. I didn't know they just gave some people the full tuition scholarship without having to attend the weekend.
My daughter just received her acceptance and a 2/3 scholarship in the mail. Does anyone know if UM gives $ for National Merit finalists in addition to this university scholarship? She hasn't listed a college yet for national merit and is curious about the $ amount. Thanks.
I really dont see how this is a hint of admission. I mean when I applied to Yale they sent me an email telling me to make sure I check for my decision on the site on a certain date, but I was deferred. I don't see how its positive. I was accepted into UM this year and I did not get any emails at all. I was expecting my decision on April 15, but I got it this past weekend in the mail.
I think that when UM wants you, they go all the way. I got the full scholarship in the mail and have continued to receive communications from them almost weekly. I applied ED and received my offer a week after they sent out the EA decisions. Certainly, it shows there is no specific pattern about the admissions.
Yes, we have a neighbor who was woo'ed away from going to UVa and chose UM when he received a full, yes really, a full tuition scholarship. I believe they threw in some additional perks. It isn't just what they post on the website. Those are general guidelines. He did not have to go to a scholarship "day" or compete for a prize. They just offered.
Fascinating! The information about the Singer Scholarship (full tuition) says that it is the most prestigious scholarship that they offer but "to receive full consideration for the Singer Scholarship, student competitors are expected to attend all scheduled activities on Friday, March 30 and Saturday, March 31." The weekend is paid for by UM - all food and hotel for the candidate and family - so it's not a bad deal in any case.
Obviously, there are people who don't have to go through the competition though, even though they don't say that.
