UM: Admissions

The New York Times publishes a report on the University of Michigan’s relatively slow admissions process: “While most applicants to the nation’s selective colleges have been weighing their acceptances (and salving the wounds of their rejections) since April 1 or earlier, more than 10,000 applicants to the University of Michigan had to wait until last Thursday to receive their notifications. That delay, in turn, left those who were accepted with fewer than two weeks to compare Michigan (and perhaps its offer of financial aid) to other institutions. Though the university has been releasing batches of decisions over the past four months, a surge in applications this year after Michigan’s move to the Common Application has slowed its ability to communicate all offers to prospective students, the university said.” [Source]
