I am a senior from MI who applied to Michigan State on October 3rd. Based on what I have seen in older posts on this forum, in-state students above a certain academic cutoff are given very quick decisions. I am most definitely above all of those cutoffs and have strong extracurriculars and essays. I am not showboating, I just think that MSU should be pretty simple for me to make.
I applied on the CommonApp. I had three decision plans: EA, RD, and Rolling. I chose Rolling thinking that my decision would arrive very soon. On the MSU website, I checked my application, and in some time it had changed from Rolling to EA. I emailed the admissions office about this, but they just said that I would get a response by January 15th. I saw my application portal change after this, though. I could see that everything was submitted and awaiting review for a while, but a few days ago, I saw the name of my admissions counselor, her picture, and some contact info.
Again, I am not too worried about MSU, but a quick decision would soothe some nerves and illustrate if I won any scholarships or not. Anyone with knowledge of this, please respond.
