As an alum (and married to an alum) parent of a current 12th grader, I've been working quite hard to manage my stress regarding the wait to hear from Michigan.
Well, the stress-control dam just broke wide open. Alumni parents of applicants for Fall 2019 just received an email from the University. The tl;dr version is that a record number of Early Action applications were received. As a result, a "decision may not reach your student until spring."
Ugh! Someone, please hold me.
