UMICH application materials

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

UMICH application materials

Postby ssapple » Wed Jan 19, 2011 1:26 pm

anyone applying to umich, can you please check the wolverine system and confirm that they received your transcripts? In my case it still says "transcripts not received" . I had send them a mail a month ago, and they replied they are still working, and I don't want to send a second e-mail.

Same here. I am applying for Applied Physics at UMich, and the transcript status is still "not received".

Once the faculty reconvene after Christmas break, they have to sort through the materials of hundreds of applicants so it is not necessarily indicative of a problem if your application status is still listed as incomplete. I'd give it another week or so.

I think you need to request a Umichigan student number.
I didn't do that.
But my friend who is applying to math did and can find that his application was complete

It seems that more than one person have already heard from them.

Right -- they update application statuses as they get to them. That doesn't mean they are finishes doing this.

I'm sort of in the same boat. I applied to both the Physics and Astronomy departments. The physics department says they've received one of my transcripts (I had 2 schools) and the astronomy has none so far. I'm glad to hear they're probably still just sorting things out.
