Penn is snatching wigs and hairpieces off heads today. A number of URMs were WL or rejected, myself included. Bleh.

I was WL'd. Anyone plan on staying on the WL?

Definitely. I wouldn't pay sticker for Penn but I'd love to attend.

Awesome. Me too. Gonna talk about my visit in my LOCI and send an additional LOR. I didn't really sell the "why Penn" in my optional essay. Going to play my last card on this one.

I've decided to throw in a SEO app and work something out with my current employer. My only problem is condensing my résumé to one page. I'm trying to decide which WE, honors, service, and leadership positions to remove. This is going to be a long night.

I won't be hearing back for a while, but if I was WL'd I'd stay on. I loved Penn when I visited and I really like the idea of taking a few courses at Wharton. Plus, their big law placement numbers are REALLY good.

Thanks for the encouragement Ev! I'm just flabbergasted that Penn say they want more black students at their school but have WL'd and even rejected strong URMs, including a 3.6/168 URM.

I guess I should be happy to still have a shot there.

oh okay. I know a few MAs who got WL'd today with 165+ LSATs and 3.7+ GPAS. I think they will probably end up taking a lot of URMs off the WL though.

But why WL strong URMs to begin with? Honestly, by that time folks will have already deposited at higher ranked schools. They are talking about revisiting the WL by mid-May. Say whaaatt??!!

If Columbia accepts me, DEUCES PENN!

Sorry to hear about UPenn AAJD. Also can't believe they would reject your friend, who knows what kind of URMs they must be looking for o_0. I'd stay on the waitlisted and ride it to the end. Best of luck!

What I did was added my ECs in the section where you can add more detail about yourself. My one-page just included all of my work experience.

Its no biggie. I didn't do a why penn essay. Even though it could have only helped. It really wasn't a number one choice of mine anyway. My top choices are between Berkeley, Michigan, Georgetown and Cornell in the T 14.
