Mid 2012 MBP bricked after this update. Called support and they have NO CLUE what is wrong with my computer. Turn off your automatic updates. I am out $1200 and I am a poor student. I am so disappointed.

I have the exact same model as you have, same year, everything. I had a problem with the last update that seemed to brick mine. The solution turned out to be to shut the whole machine off, open it up in back, unplug the battery, leave it unplugged for a minute, plug it back in, reassemble the back panel, and start up again. I was able to login after that.

I'm holding off on this update for awhile, but I figured my experience might still help you.
