Honors Program Decision

<p>I have submitted my essay and everything. Does anyone know when I will hear whether or not I have been accepted to the Honor's College?
Has anyone been accepted yet?</p>


<p>yeah I got in today, submitted my essay like 10 days ago.</p>

<p>I got in today by mail... so my guess is decisions get made fast.</p>

<p>what were your stats? I submitted about 10 days ago too and haven't received anything, not looking too good for me.</p>

<p>I got in about a week ago.</p>

<p>I also received an email from a lee jeewon hinting that I would be awarded the writing competition award. Anyone else? No money apart from regents yet though, which is truly surprising and kinda frightening.</p>

<p>Did you write the essay or did they just admit you?</p>

<p>Got in - then submitted an essay that I had written for another school to be eligible for that book award or w/e it is.</p>

<p>Which essay topic did you guys pick?</p>

<p>I didn't wait for an invitatin but instead sent in a request. I submitted my essay around the first week of Nov. Is that what you guys have done? I am getting worried that i haven't heard back? Any thoughts? </p>

<p>For those who have already been admitted, what are your stats?<br>
Thanks and congrats to all who are already in :)</p>

<p>how do you apply for the honors program?</p>

<p>you get an email inviting you.</p>

<p>I too submitted the essay, but only few days ago. I guess I will have to wait for few more days. </p>

<p>I admire U of Mich admissions people. They are fast and the process is perhaps the easiest amongst similar colleges.</p>

<p>if i havent gotten an invitation, but i want to apply for honors, should i email them a request?</p>

<p>If you receive an email, is that a sign that you have a good chance of being admitted to it?</p>

<p>As long as you reply in a reasonably timely manner, I'd imagine you'd have a good shot, but it's not a guarantee. I could see them sending out e-mails to the top 20% of applicants to try and get a yield of 10% of all applicants*, so if you're in the 10-20% range it kind of depends on how many people above you end up doing Honors college. From their perspective, it's better to have too many applicants than too few, so I don't think they'd limit their invitations only to people who are guaranteed to get in.</p>

<p>*Numbers pulled from where the sun doesn't shine, not guaranteed to reflect reality.</p>

<p>Yes, an e-mail invitation is a fair indicator of your chances.</p>

<p>nevermind, i got an email invite to Wisconsin's honors program, not UM's. thanks though!</p>


<p>Location: southern cal, looking for colleges in Michigan and Wisconsin? Baffles me. :)</p>

I admire U of Mich admissions people. They are fast and the process is perhaps the easiest amongst similar colleges.

Ha! I don't think everyone thinks this. This wasn't the case when I applied and was accepted. It took forever to get a decision and I was qualified (never deferred either).</p>
