Thats insane. How did you find out? status checker?

Status Checker.

I guess I shouldn't have written my PS about how I want to live in Hyde park because I like getting high on blow and punching hookers in the mouth with fistfulls of rolled up quarters.

Top 3% at T35 here. Regular Decision. Stunned.

Why would anyone be stunned at a decision like that? Transferring into elite law schools is notoriously difficult, even harder than the normal process.

True, but someone from my school last year was ranked twenty spots lower than I am currently and got into Chicago, so I'm wondering if I really screwed something up in my app.

The rumor is they are overenrolled this year and are taking very few transfers. Someone with a higher class rank than you at a higher school got waitlisted too, so there was probably nothing you could have done.

Chicago was much easier to get into in previous years. It sucks that some transfer hopefuls are going to get screwed over because of an over-enrolled class, but there's not much that can be done.

Thats just ridiculous. If they don't accept a top 1% student, then who do they accept?


Yield protect? Do they do that for transfers?

Yield protect makes little sense in the context of transfers. There's no harm to admitting people who will not enroll, since there is no US News hit for selectivity.

I think it's just a very competitive year in Hyde Park.

Yeah I thought about it and yield protect really wouldn't make any sense. What a bummer!

On that note, I'm still 5/11 hold sent by email. I suppose since they haven't gotten around to even WL'ing me, the rejection should come sometime this week.

I somewhat regret not applying more widely in the Top 14. Oh well, such is life. :)

If it makes all of you Chicago WL's feel better, I got outright rejected back during the ED cycle.

Updated at Penn from UR 7/8 to UR with today's date. Whoever doubted they work on Mondays a couple of pages back now has an answer

Was this your first date change, or second?

First. Think that means I may not be getting an answer today?

To clarify. I went Complete --> UR all on 7/8. Now it changed to UR with today's date.

Yeah, I do not think you will be getting a decision today. I am no expert though haha but I think everyone's status checker changed dates once, and then at some point you either get a decision... or you wait in limbo like me.

I think you will get a decision Thursday or Friday, but who knows.

Same here, except I went Complete --> UR on 7/7. Then changed to today.

The deposit for the first batch of acceptances is due Thursday. This is pure speculation, but I would think the second batch of decisions would be sent out on Friday.

I guess we'll see. Do people who had their UR update to today want to post stats?

Is there anyone complete at Penn who did NOT update to today's date? Because otherwise, stat posting wouldn't really tell much.

If its any help, I talked to the admissions office today for unrelated things, and it seems, based on the information I was given, that decisions will be coming soon. Maybe not today, but very, very soon.

It's posts like this that get me checking the status checker far too much
