<p>HOOKS FOR BOTH:
-Asian?
-In-state</p>

<p>I would say number one for sure if the ACT can be raised a little bit.</p>

<p>act is the only potential road block in my book, but what do ik...i'm no michigan admissions officer</p>

<p>What about number 2?</p>

<p>practically everyone from my school goes to uofm ann arbor. For sure, both will get in. They're decent/both in-state.</p>

<p>doesnt it vary by school though?</p>

<p>I don't really know, but I'd say number one for sure and number two a maybe if they're both coming from schools that are somewhat lacking</p>

<p>why is number two a maybe?</p>

<p>wow, people go on this forum a lot. i didnt think i would be bumped to the second page so quickly.</p>

<p>i hope more people have input on this. i dont think this is really restoring any confidence or not.</p>

<p>also,</p>

<p>can both be chanced rather than one or the other?</p>

<p>............................</p>

<p>no. 2's a maybe because of gpa. transcript is the most important factor in admissions</p>

<p>but the gpa is well above the michigan limit isnt it?</p>

<p>Are you both IS or OOS?</p>

<p>we're both in-state from the same school. our school is highly competitive.</p>
