    Question. Does anyone have any insights in terms of the timing of applying for early action? In other words does it help to apply in September vs mid or late October? Just curious as Michigan seems to defer a lot of students. Thanks

    From what I've heard, timing doesn't matter as long as it is in by the deadline

    Re: Timing of application. No discernible difference has been detected.

    FWIW, my kid sent the app in on Halloween and was accepted EA.

    Just curious as Michigan seems to defer a lot of students.

    Yes, they do, but they also reject a few too. Just talking ball park numbers from the Class of 2022, 40,000 of the roughly total apps of 65,000 were submitted EA. Of the 40,000 EA apps, there were almost 8,000 acceptances. The grand total acceptances is about 15,000. So, UMich accepted around 50% of the total acceptances for the entire class during EA.

    I'm sure UMich could fill their entire class with EA acceptances, but they don't. :smile:

    Here's the current admissions profile for UMich Class of 2023. Details aren't available yet.

    They have them up on the site - 3.9 UW and 32-35 ACT (50th percentile)

    You’re right, the math suggests they turn down a lot of kids in EA also....am sure there are a lot of 26-31 ACT students that apply EA as well, especially in state.

    Yes, that is the basic admissions profile for the Class of 2023. What I meant to say was that the CDS and/or a news release has not been released that will give us the breakdown of OOS vs. in-state admissions and their corresponding acceptance rates. As well as other more detailed info. Also, in the past the stats of the website's admissions profile has not always agreed with the CDS.

    Just an FYI for those of you applying to be in the Class of 2024.

    Since I/we don't have the a full breakdown of Class of 2023 statistics (although the class appears to be larger by a few hundred students), here's the breakdown for enrolled Class of 2022:
    LSA 4,163
    Engineering 1,363
    Ross 447
    MTD 200
    Kinesiology 166
    Stamps 155
    Nursing 136
    Taubman 34

    Total = 6,664

    Hi @sushiritto ! I am currently a sophomore in LSA at the University of Michigan–Ann Arbor, and I heard back on 12/20/2017 at 3:03pm. Let me know if you have any other questions, as I am more than happy to help!

    Can anyone give any tips for essays? I'm applying LSA with interest in computer science, and writing my activities essay about teaching coding classes, my community one about women in STEM (with respect to a coding camp I've done for two years), and I'm stuck on my why UMichigan. The problem is that I have a million reasons why UMichigan, but the reason I'm applying LSA is basically only because I don't want to take engineering school required classes for an almost identical comp sci degree.

    UMich has a lot to offer students. Research the website and some other related articles. If something interests you, then write about it.

    BTW, you can always transfer in or out of the CoE or LSA, if you change your mind. Hey, there you go. Write about UMich making transfers/changing majors easy. 😀

    My advice on the ‘why michigan’ essay:

    1. Write with specificity. What particular courses or program attributes or philosophy towards the material are unique to the Michigan program that interests you? Are there specific electives or general distribution requirements that interest you? Why? Again, write with a specificity that shows you’ve dug into the on-line materials about your interests and know what Michigan has to offer.
    2. Have a strong close. This is what’s toughest about the essay. If you do your research, writing about what attracts you in 1. will be straightforward. The tough thing is to tie it all together. That’s where you’ll have to be creative.

    @sushiritti, that was said tongue-in-cheek, right? Transferring out of LSA is very difficult, at least for students hoping to land in business or engineering!

    Transferring to Ross is very hard since they have 125 odd spots for cross campus transfers.

    As long as you have the grades and prereqs moving from LSA to Engineering or other way is easy. They will never put this in writing but ask the counselor privately.

    @hgrobel The fact that your preference is "humanities" instead of "core engineering" as you pursue a Comp Sci degree is a good angle. Spin it in a proper way.

    This is what I've heard too.

    @UMich4567 I'm told by my kid, other UMich students and parents that a transfer from LSA to CoE isn't that difficult as long as you fulfill the requirements. And not every student wants a transfer from LSA to CoE or Ross. There are students transferring OUT of Ross and CoE, which is relatively easy. Also, there are other Schools at UMich like Kinesiology, Nursing, Public Health, Social Work, Education, Information, Public Policy, etc.

    And as I mentioned above, changing majors within LSA or within CoE is relatively easy. During orientation a couple years ago, parents were told 75-85% of UMich freshman will change their major at least once. One of our student panels had a student who had changed their major three times. And we are also told, assuming prereq's were fulfilled (GPA, courses, etc.), UMich tries to accommodate as many students as they possibly can.

    BTW, Ross accepts between 100-125 cross-college transfers per year. There are no cross-campus transfer statistics available that I'm aware of that will tell any of us the acceptance rate to Ross (or any school). If you do have statistics, then please post a link.

    Also, my name here on CC is sushiritto, not sushiritti. :wink:
