    As a waitlisted student, should I write a letter to update my most recent grades and activities? To where should I send the letter?

    If you were waitlisted, know you are strong enough to get in.

    If the acceptance rate of admission offers falls below their threshold, the methodology of students pulled from the waitlist is likely influenced by a student's intended area of interest. At this point, it becomes a waiting game as to where your application "fit" into the quilt work of the class of 2023 and where they need to balance the incoming student body. There are only so many psychology, public policy, engineering, biochem, etc intended majors they can accommodate.

    @cdr2001 based on last year's waitlist thread, I think they start sending out notifications around May 7

    There are only so many psychology, public policy, engineering, biochem, etc intended majors they can accommodate.

    UMich admits students by school/college, here’s the stats from the Class of 2022:
    LSA 4,163
    Engineering 1,363
    Ross 447
    MTD 200
    Kinesiology 166
    Stamps 155
    Nursing 136
    Taubman 34

    Total = 6,664

    So within LSA, a student doesn’t declare their major until 2nd semester sophomore year, thus what your major is within LSA won’t matter for admitted/waitlisted students. Last year, UMich gave parents a statistic that said 75-85% of LSA students will change their major at least once. That’s probably because premed, math, biology, chemistry, etc. are REALLY hard and many are “weeded” out.

    Best of luck! 👍

    Hey everyone, just a question.

    Where do you plan to go and for what major, if the waitlist does not work out (I hope not) in June?

    I plan to go to UIUC Engineering, admitted to Engineering Mechanics, will switch to IE!

    @omnom2169 you also waitlisted? My son too is waitlisted. I have hardly heard any acceptances this wave. Waitlist chances look slim. On common data set i saw umich waitlisted an insanely high no of above 11000 on waitlist and only 450 were taken off waitlist.
    My son plans to attend USC viterbi.

    If my son doesn’t get off the waitlist at Michigan, he intends to go to our state’s public flagship school, University of New Mexico, full-ride on a national merit scholarship, undecided major.

    @friend1976 Yes I was waitlisted too! Congratulations to your son on the USC Viterbi acceptance! It's a great achievement! I was gonna apply but decided to apply to Michigan instead :D

    The wait list chances look slim but it seems the number of students who will accept their spot on the list is low too...I have seen many CC and Reddit posts of Michigan waitlisted students who won't be accepting their spots... So I am hopeful that the rate would be higher.

    Can’t say. It may be low as of now. But last year out of 11000+ who were offered waitlist around 4000+ accepted the waitlist. So around 11% acceptance off the waitlist. So there is chance but better not to rely on it. If it comes nothing better than that. My son added USC and michigan to his list much later in the end. Good that he added now at least he has something of his choice to go to. Otherwise all others acceptances were his back ups

    For those of you sending LOCI’s, when are you doing so, and are you including your current grades? Mine aren’t official until the end of the semester so I don’t know what to do.

    Is a LOCI essential to getting off the waitlist? Everything I’ve read about being waitlisted at Michigan says they have everything they need already.

    At this point just accepting the wait list offer is telling them strongly, that you want to attend. Follow what the letter says.
