I hope those who have been admitted but are keen on enrolling elsewhere (like those admitted to Yale, ahem ahem) will signify their decisions immediately to Dora-Maria to ease the worries of those still waiting for decisions.

My application is complete on Jan 8, 2018 and I still have not heard anything from them. If they say they examine the applications on rolling basis, this is quite strange to me.

Sadly, yes. Admitted candidates have until April to make a decision. The board meets on funding decisions in March. So if you put two and two together...

What is your CV like?


Hi! I'm from India. Graduated in 2016. GPA was 8.76/10. I initially worked in a law firm after which I interned with the UN for six months. I'm going for international law with a focus on human rights and humanitarian law. Any idea about my chances? Thanks!

Do I have to accept an offer in order to be considered for funding?


No. But only admitted students are considered for funding in March. Waitlisted candidates are not.

But won't the wait listed candidates who eventually get in have a shot at scholarships also? The scholarship given to a person who decided not to study in Michigan should be given to people who are eventually taken off the waiting list.

In theory, yes. However, funding is a privilege, not a right. Even the currently admitted students may not all get scholarships. So, firstly, as funding is a major deal for most students, the chances that a candidate who is part of an exclusive group of 45 and gets generous funding will reject such an offer are very slim.

Secondly, if in fact a person declines an offer, an admitted waitlister and originally admitted students have an equal chance at the newly available scholarship. I do not mean to be pessimistic, but these are the stark realities.

I really have no idea but your CV sounds really good! I know the UN don't pay their interns; how did you cover the costs?


My older sister lives in New York. So the cost wasn't an issue. Otherwise I would hardly have considered applying. I was lucky in that sense. Got to work in the Office of the President of the General Assembly.

Btw, I've received an offer from Georgetown Law. I'm really inclined towards it. The only hitch now is finding suitable funding. Of course I will wait for other schools to respond before I accept this offer, but I'm seriously considering Georgetown because it's great for international law.

What about you? What's your CV like? Where are you from??
