From their FAQ page:

Applicants will be notified by email when their application is received, again when their application file is complete and at other times to provide an update on the status of their application. Additionally, applicants will be able to check the status of their application at any time using Online Status, Penn Law's online status checker.

for people who have seen date changes at Penn - how many times has your date changed?

I first went UR on 6/24, and then updated on 6/30, but no movement since.

Has anyone seen it happen 3 times?

I was processing at NYU for over a week (even though I knew everything was in), so I called yesterday and they confirmed over the phone that my application was complete. Finally went UR today, except the date the status changed was 7/1? Yesterday I was definitely still processing. So strange.

NYU told me they did not have my official law school transcripts and I sent it out over 3 weeks ago. I sent out 4 transcripts at once from my current school. Now I am wondering if Columbia does not have my transcripts either because it was sent in the same batch. I sent Columbia an email asking what files I am missing yesterday but it could take them up to 5 days to even respond. Should I call Columbia? It is getting pretty late and I am starting to worry I am too late for any of these schools due to an administrative error.

So Northwestern apparently got my letter of good standing in Chicago, but Penn didn't get it from across the river? WTF? I blame holiday mail sorting.

Note to future transfer applicants: do your letters of good standing BEFORE everything else (basically the second your grades come in). I blame myself on this for waiting way too long, and my requests ended up conflicting with my Dean's vacation and the 4th of July holiday.

I had the same issue with Penn - they were the last to receive my Letter of Good Standing (still haven't received it actually). I called them and they told me on the phone that, unfortunately, all mail sent to Penn gets sent to one place, and then is sorted and distributed. The suggestion I got was to have your current school e-mail Penn a copy of the letter.

Of course, this will only work if the person at your school is amenable to it, but I had my school do it this morning and I'm now (finally) complete at Penn.

Penn: I went from UR 6/28 to 7/6 so only two for me as well. Any guesses?

Anyone know if this can be done with transcripts? They still haven't processed mine.

how long after your application was submitted to NYU did you receive the status checker information?

like three weeks for me, but I submitted really early in May.

I'd actually recommend getting your letters of good standing and certs even before you get your spring grades. I requested mine the day after exams ended and had them sign the envelope so I could then send them myself (I didn't trust them to do it in a timely fashion). I mean if you're not in good standing after grades come out, you probably wouldn't get admitted in the first place, so get them in as early as possible. This way, once your final grade is released, receipt of your transcript will complete your file (and some schools even completed me with an unofficial transcript emailed to them)

Yeah, I did this for Georgetown/Berk/Chicago super early and had no problems (well, minus the two rejections, but it's doubtful either had anything to do with the letter). And we don't even rank, so it's not like I had to wait for that. Why I waited on the rest, I still don't know. I blame finals burn-out :lol:.

I had the friendly person from the Dean's office email a copy of the good standing letter to me, and then emailed it to Penn. It posted the same day on the status checker.

I know who you're talking about (she's awesome). I'll shoot her an e-mail.

Yale: July 18- July 22



Any idea about Stanford and Chicago?


According to TLS posts of the past two years, Stanford has accepted people on July 14-16 (both years it was over only two days that people were accepted). Rejections came later. Given the extremely small number of transfers Stanford accepts, I'd have to guess that these few data points are unreliable (and SLS probably loses a couple transfers admits each year to Yale and Harvard, which may cause them to do a second round of acceptances).
