I'd like to check my placement in the Lyman Briggs wait pool.
As a wait pool, there is no chronology. Please note that we begin pulling from the wait pool in late May (after May 1 decision deadline) and will continue pulling students from the wait pool throughout the summer. Feel free to email Jonelle Golding at goldingj@msu.edu in late-April or early-May to re-express your interest.

How do you determine who gets pulled in from the wait pool?
Our recruitment coordinator considers a variety of factors when pulling students from the wait pool. Please be patient, as this process lasts all summer. If you have not heard whether you've been admitted to Lyman Briggs 2-3 weeks prior to your Academic Orientation date, it would be appropriate to email Jonelle Golding at goldingj@msu.edu.
