    6 II sent out today, seems like a change of pace from the 2-3 they have been doing. Unfortunately, I'm not among them this time. Perhaps next.....

    In the accepted students FB group, they showed a filmed acceptance being delivered in-person on/near campus. How touching :)

    Just noticed something weird. In my rejection email that I received (RIP) it says "Carol Teener" as the sender, the email address is [email protected], and the email is signed by "Steven E. Gay." 3 different people lol.

    Incidentally, blue is no longer my favorite color for some reason.

    I’m blessed to have a better option than Umich now, but I still feel burned as one of their alums. Expected better from them.

    If I remember right you were also on the Mayo thread. Hopefully we hear good news from them as consolation. It’s probably harder to get an interview from them than get accepted to umich.

    Looks like UMich did a mass killing on Tuesday. I am still waiting. I'll most likely get eliminated after next UMich Monday.

    Admitted student here! Could any current OOS students speak to how financial aid here works? It seems like Mich has more merit / needbased scholarships than a lot of schools, but I’m not sure how much of that is fact vs really sharp marketing. :)

    deferred OOS student here! I was pleasantly surprised by my financial aid estimate last year. I got a merit scholarship around mid-March which I definitely wasn't expecting, and then my need-based aid estimate at the end of March. I don't remember the specifics on the need-based aid, but the amount was such that I wouldn't need to take out any grad plus or other additional loans on top of the federal one which I was happy about. Michigan definitely ended up being one of my cheapest options

    Wow, that’s awesome! I’m waiting for financial aid to come out before making my decision. It sounds like this might be a big factor for choosing to go blue. Thanks for the info!

    I have yet to rejected from this school, but I will post as a rejection because a miracle of God is the only thing that will get me an invite.

    I ADORE this school. Actual life dream was to be accepted for the past two years. I was not a student here, but had the privilege to get to know the medical school and its faculty intimately over the last two summers. They care here, and have so many resources here that I genuinely do not think I would succeed anywhere else as much as if I were to go here. However, a girl has done ducked up with the academics due to outside issues, so I don't think I will ever be attending here (more unfulfilled life dreams), but I say if you have the blessing, go here. It's a darn amazing school, and the state of Michigan that I call home is a beautiful state, and a true blessing to be able to serve its people (another unrealized dream me thinks as I am getting no instate love). This rejection is going to sting the most because of the time I spent here, but I guess God had other plans for me.

    Much love and vibes to those of you in the race still. Good luck. :)

    I'm just curious, but could anyone tell me what is the difference between the university of michigan and university of michigan - Dearborn besides the fact that they are two different locations?

    Ann Arbor is the main campus, and then there are regional campuses in Dearborn and Flint. Umich- Ann Arbor is the largest and most competitive to be accepted to.

    I’m going to have to disagree. UMich - Ann Arbor has one of the most rigorous and well known engineering programs in the country. An engineering degree from Dearborn does not hold up to a degree from UMich- Ann Arbor

    Okay so it seems like university of michigan main is way better. But the degree conferred at graduation for the regional campuses still says university of michigan right? So there's no distinction between which campus you went to on the degree?

    There is a distinction. I like to think of it as analogous to the UC system. UC-Berkeley and UC-Riverside are both universities under the University of California system, but they differ greatly in rigor and prestige.

    It would be disingenuous to say that you graduated from the University of Michigan, without clarifying you went to the Flint or Dearborn campus, instead of the Ann Arbor campus.

    No, it says University of Michigan - Dearborn, or - flint. So you can't try to pull a fast one on employers and just list "University of Michigan" on your CV.

    I thought so. I dunno why someone I met said it didn't and that his degree only said university of michigan. He carries around the Umich gear all the time saying he graduated from university of michigan and not university of michigan - Dearborn lol.

    I know someone like this too. I don’t think the degree states the difference (according to the guy I know that does that). I try not to let it bother me even though I went through the academic rigor of the undergrad at the main campus (ann arbor).... I am not sure how difficult dearborn is but ann arbor is academically challenging. I would think the degree would state it but guess not...

    Several people make this claim but they've probably never actually read their diploma.. Either that or

    It says "University of Michigan" in very big letters at the front followed by a smaller font that says a couple of things including the most important statement "hereby it is certified that upon recommendation of The University of Michigan - Dearborn(or flint) School of Whatever, The Regents of the University of Michigan have conferred upon X"

    My guess is most of these people see "University of Michigan" in huge font and assume that means their diploma doesn't mention anything about campus. So if you do lie and say you went to University of Michigan Ann-Arbor and your employer eventually finds out, it'd be grounds to fire you.
