    You never know. No news isn't bad news either. Could just hear back later today or something. Who knows.

    Thank you. Congrats on your A! I did browse through old threads and it seems like those that get waitlisted, deferred, or rejected hear back later rather than at midnight. Hope I’m wrong tho! This is my top choice honestly

    Patiently waiting for my rejection over here :(
    Edit: I'm not even one of the lucky ducks who interviewed here -- still at that "II or R?" phase, haha.

    Haven’t lost hope yet too. Fwiw I’m oos and haven’t heard back, but I also know a fellow oos-er that recently got admitted.

    Hope they’re sending decisions in batches.

    Deferred here too, pretty bummed. Thought the interviews went really well and would be lying if I said this school didn’t become a personal favorite after the 24 hours in blue. The most disappointing part is how much I really liked and connected with the students, faculty, and other interviewees at every step of the way.

    Will continue to stay hopeful, and good luck to everyone else as well.

    I would say so. I only got an II last week exactly, and they had both mid and late November available.

    Same. I was 100% sold on this school and they broke my heart.

    "This decision is not an offer of admission, waitlist, nor is it a rejection. Your file is being compared to other interviewees who interview later than you. "

    Based on this I feel like we're still in contention. We're just moved to another group and re-evaluated. Hopefully at least.

    Yep. Historically, it doesn't look that good and I haven't found anyone in past threads that got accepted post-deferral. But things can change year to year, and if there's a year for things to change it's this one with the new AAMC rules. Curious to hear other opinions as well, but still happy to be in the running here.

    Yeah same. Browsing through old threads, it doesn't look good haha. I think only like 5% get deferred so my interpretation of it is that they're just delaying the decision and comparing us to the next cohort. Based on that our chances are similar to their regular post interview acceptance %. This is assuming we aren't grouped into a deferred pile where it'll be harder to make a case for acceptance.

    I think the changes with AAMC won't change much for how UMich does things. I don't think they're being conservative and handing out more WL or deferrals this year, but who knows though?

    I know the next wave will be for all October interview decisions, and people will find out on Nov. 15th. Based on that, I would assume that this will continue to be the trend for the months after.

    Deferred:( is there a waitlist option too? Or does Michigan only give out acceptance, deferral, and rejections?

    From what I know, deferred is preferable over waitlist at Michigan!

    Is this really true? Every previous u michigan thread I have seen pretty much indicates that deferred is a glorified waitlist/reject at U michigan. Do you actually know anybody who attends U michigan who got in from deferred?
    I was deferred :( Life moves on, but it is discouraging considering how high their post-interview acceptance rate is.

    I definitely know people who get accepted after deferral!! Seriously! It’s the waitlist that I hear is more likely to be a glorified rejection...

    Congrats on the interview. Ann Arbor doesn't have regular commercial service, so you'll have to fly into Detroit. It's only about 30 minutes by car from DTW to Ann Arbor.

    Oooh. That's not bad. I'll rent a car from Detroit then. Thank you!

    EDIT: I waited too long to book my flight. It's over $1000 now. =(

    Even better than renting a car: Google the Michigan Flyer. It's a bus service that can take you directly from the DTW airport to campus. It will be much cheaper than renting a car, and the ride is about 30 minutes long.

    Public transportation in Ann Arbor is actually quite good; unless you plan on doing some additional independent traveling while you're in Michigan, you can use free or very inexpensive public transportation for your whole time there.

    Does Michigan send out a complete email? All I have received was a message saying that it would be marked as complete after CASPER is received

    They have an admissions tracker on their website that tells you how many IIs have been sent already, usually gets updated on Michigan Mondays after their twitter announcement

    Their official MD Admissions tracker shows 7,738 apps, 394 IIs and 107 admissions offers, although they usually update this every Monday night like lex515 said. The number of interview invites seems to vary pretty drastically between years though, if you look at their class statistics they interviewed 527 for the incoming class of 2017 but only 445 for the incoming class of 2018, with a 5-year average (2014-2018) of 534 per year. I guess that means there could be anywhere from ~50 to ~140 IIs left to be sent out?

    How did you know nothing happened, through the admission tracker? I thought sometime they update it a day later.
