    Since no one has started a UDM acceptance thread, i will

    I interviewed some time in November and got the call Dec. 1

    By the way, i also got into other schools including Michigan (I'm a Mi resident) and chose Detroit mercy.....how could u not?

    I am a MI resident too and Detroit Mercy impressed me so much when I interviewed there. Much more than the other schools I was accepted to. I am sending out my deposit Monday! :)

    Haven't "officially" decided but strongly leaning toward UDM. Thanks for starting this thread. I just discovered it today.

    I too am jumping on the band wagon! See you all later this year! :biglove:

    p.s. did anybody start a facebook group for us?

    p.p.s. does anybody know if it is in any way possible to live in Windsor and commute to school everyday as an American?!? Windsor is sooooo much cheaper and safer than Detroit... I know that a student or work visa is probably needed, but do you think I could get one from the University of Windsor b/c of their relationship with UDM law school?

    One problem w/a Windsor commute could be getting tied up in traffic at the bridge or tunnel. How about the Royal Oak area?

    UDM for me!

    I haven't seen a facebook group yet.

    I know a couple of Wayne medical students that live in Canada, I'm sure that it would be possible. I am not sure about dealing with regulations though. The next time I see them I will ask if I remember.

    Yea that's true, I have heard about that being an issue. RO area is where I am now, it's not bad...can make it to the school in ~15 mins.

    Do to the price of living in Windsor and how close it is to the school (and some other personal reasons) I liked the idea better than Royal Oak. Now I love Royal Oak but I feel like I am ready to live in a really nice place and I can't afford it in the Michigan area lol. If it doesn't work I think I might live in Troy (right next to Royal Oak) I love that area and Somerset mall hehe. The commute across the border is also not a huge deal to me because I can get Nexus, and I also cross the border all the time already.

    Also, someone make us a facebook group! :D

    You can send a check. Not sure if they accept credit for the deposit. Be sure you send it to the dental school on Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. and not UDM's main campus.
