Congrats!

d330, I'm taking it to be a positive. I had my JS1 a week or so after yours and have been held for a while. I'm thinking they're saving the best for last :)


I'll roll with that one.

This is how the day went:

HLS - hold email

much much later in the day:

Penn - acceptance call.

I won't say I would have been good with a role reversal on that one. I'll just say it's been a good cycle so far and I'm definitely going to law schools somewhere.

I'm sorry about Harvard, but congratulations on Penn!

Thanks to all too. This thread has been supportive and it's nice to celebrate the success of strangers and share their frustration. My cycle is actually a miracle in every sense of the word though so I'm going to be thankful and hope everyone else gets the options they want.

I don't remember Penn. I think I went complete in January. I know I was HLS complete on 12/6 or so and JS1 1/9

Don't feel bad, bro... I was raised in Pennsylvania and still wait-listed by Penn! They're cold.

The fact that you got waitlisted at Penn but still got a JS1 gives me hope. Seems like there are a lot of qualified AA's who flood CCNPVM with applications but hold off on YHS thinking they don't have a shot.

+1. Waitlisted today and I'm starting to get anxious about the other schools I haven't heard from yet (NYU, Chicago, Harvard and Stanford).

I think you should remind them of this the next time they invite you to give to the Penn Fund. I certainly will after I get my WL or ding, but I applied so late I have no right to expect anything more.

Penn definitely seems to know exactly who they want. Consulting LSN, I found 7 URM applicants this cycle between 3.6-3.8 and 164-168 and all 7 were WL. Of the 10 folks in that range who are showing for H, 9 of the 10 have been admitted.

MVP are the most notorious URM WL and YP schools in the T14.

+1 on the find dawy. 3.6+/165+ URM has been damn near golden at Harvard this cycle.

Definitely, man. I feel like Penn and Berkeley have been very selective this cycle with who they want. Penn was honestly my top choice going into this cycle, too.

Has anyone heard from, or know a fellow URM that has been admitted to Yale?

Do any URM's usually get off of the notorious Penn WL?

waiting on all these schools feels like the 4th circle of Hell. I just hope that April brings swifter replies so I won't be completely clueless come graduation day.

According to LSN, there's usually a huge wave of URM acceptances from around 4/05-4/15!

Congrats on NU Hank and welcome to the aforementioned Yellow Vortex for Penn. Make that 9/9 3.6-3.8, 164-168 URM's WL there this cycle.
