    From your experience, is it too early to be getting worried about not receiving an interview? I submitted mid July....

    How did you know? Were you guys sharing stats during the interview? Also, admissions is just super arbitrary at every school. Like nobody knows how the decisions are made.

    If you are telling me your stats at interview day without me asking, you are a gunner

    This is so weird — in all of my interviews I haven’t heard one person tell me their stats. Not sure if that constituted a gunner, but more so someone who needs affirmation or a feeling of superiority. Not sure which of those personalities are worse

    While albeit not the best stats, it still surprises me they sent one this early. Tbh, those stats are awesome for someone who went back to grad school and came out with 4.0, their mistake not yours don't sweat it!

    Does anyone know whether Umich waits to see new DAT scores? I just got rejected and its obvious its because of my DAT score but I would figure they'd wait ... They have a decent amount of post December interviews so I didn't think they'd reject me until at least my new score was in. I'm retaking at the end of the month and its on my application. I have a 3.54 GPA and lots of experience, volunteering and research. Good personal statement and letters. So I'm just confused. Anyone have any intellect on this?

    @Ruguox3 @futureDDS_19 When did you guys submit your application if you dont mind me asking? It is weird to see them sending out rejections already... but don’t lose hope! It’s only one of many schools.

    I think that the issue could be that your new scores would be coming in past their application deadline. I know on their website it suggests not taking the DAT after august 30th so that the scores can come in before the mid-october deadline

    I took my retake August 30th, and didn't event find out about this deadline until a few days after. Talk about a close call. Anyways, anyone else just frantically refresh their email after seeing these posts? Lol

    They're a slaughterhouse today lol, is this school doing only pre-December interviews? I'm for sure cancelling if I get one post-December.

    Also submitted 7/19, haven't been rejected yet, stats in signature. Good luck!

    Have all the people getting rejected already interviewed? Or is this pre-interview rejection?

    You can't really find any cheap options around football Saturdays. The closer you are to downtown or campus, the more expensive it is. However, if you choose not to stay close, you will need to factor in the cost of Uber or Lyft.

    They interview 30 people per interview date. And so far either 4 or 5 interviews have already taken place (not sure if they did any interviews yesterday, every few weeks they pause interviews for admissions committee meetings).

    What I meant by my last statement was that since they didn't hold interviews yesterday, yesterday was basically dedicated to allowing the admissions committee to meet. That's basically what the off weeks are meant for.

    Hey guys, just looking for some advice. I submitted my application on June 19th and received the email that my app was processed on July 5th by U of M, and AADSAS said my app was complete on July 12th. Has anyone who applied the same time around me heard back yet? Umich is one of my top choices, and I heard they've already had 4 interviews dates. I can list stats and all if needed.
