When do I hear from University of Michigan if I applied regular decision?

<p>I know online it says a decision is guaranteed by April, but I applied on 1/16/2012, a couple weeks before their Feb 1st deadline. It' rolling admissions, so when do you think my decision will be released?</p>

<p>End of March. It's not really rolling at all and if it was, you applied at the end of the process so you'd be last anyway.</p>

<p>I called the admissions officer last week and they said that the January batch would be notified the end of February to the beginning of March.</p>

<p>BTW, I hope you know that the later you apply, the harder the requirements become... If you don't mind me asking, what was your SAT/GPA?</p>

<p>ACT 30 GPA 3.88 unweighted (probably higher now because I've been pulling almost all A's in a combo of honors/AP classes this year)</p>

<p>o_O I applied 2 days after you and already know my results (Deferred :( ).</p>

BTW, I hope you know that the later you apply, the harder the requirements become...


<p>What's your source for that info? Back in the rolling admissions days that was somewhat true; these days admissions vehemently denies that there is an advantage to earlier submission.</p>

<p>aww:/ how did you find out??</p>

<p>As far as I know, UMich operates on a revised rolling basis in that everyone is viewed at the same time and decisions are distributed in random batches.
Crosbyroth, I found out via email. I don't know what this means (because I was given a response so early) but I am kind of glad that my deferral was so early. I'm trying to be very proactive and provide plenty of information for U-M to review. :)
Here were my stats, just in case you're curious:
Applied LS&A. Gpa UW/W: 3.93/4.8. Rank: 14/475. SAT: 1880 in one sitting, 2030 superscored (Probably what 'sunk me'.) EC: Loads of leadership positions in music and academic pursuits. Oh and I'm an OOS legacy.</p>

<p>your credentials look pretty good haha, i'm really starting to doubt my chances now.....</p>

<p>Thanks, as do yours. Your GPA is on-par with mine, but your ACT scores are much more UMich compatible. Are you in or out-of-state? I am sending in new letters of rec, I took the ACT yesterday (I was taking it for U-M anyways XD), and I got straight A's for the first semester of senior year! :D I really want to be a wolverine. I wish you luck as well!</p>

<p>I'm OOS, and i'm sure you'll get in!! good luck to you too!</p>

<p>Haha, we'll see. I hope you get that "congratulations!" soon! I don't really understand UMich's method to the madness in terms of what order they go through applications. But I'm sure you'll find out soon.</p>
