What's taking so long?

<p>My boyfriend and I applied to UMich September 7th. Every part of our applications are in, but we haven't heard back yet. Someone I know got his acceptance letter a week ago, and I'm wondering why it's taking so long. Thanks :)</p>

<p>Don't worry. The University reviews applications in batches, and the batches seem to be selected somewhat randomly, not necessarily in the order received. Last year, my daughter applied very early, as you did. She received her acceptance shortly before Thanksgiving.</p>

<p>you should get yours prettty soon. i sent mine in on August 31 and got my letter back on November 5.</p>
