I couldn't find this thread anywhere. This app is my longest shot. Anyone else applying?

Applied - waiting on them to process my official transcript.

Its a long shot for me:
top 10%, upper T2. - hoping that over 4 years full/time work experience helps.

Top 1% at a school in the 80s, hoping for the best.

Put an application in as well... Ivy Undergrad... top 10% at T50... not sure if I even have a shot but figured the process was so unpredictable I might as well go for it.

My file went complete yesterday, and I'm under committee review as of today. Quick turnaround, so I hope the decisions are the same.

T30 - Top 3%, and from PA if that means anything.

Are you applying HYS? If you're from PA, I would think you are a shoe in.

I think i may have been the first one to go complete at this school. I've been "under committee review" since 6/19, and they have been the most efficient as far as emails and status checker. I'm top 5 at low t2

Question:

Was there always a section on the status checker for "seat deposit"?
I expect there was, but Im hoping that they just added it.

Thanks. I'm hoping it gets me into one of the schools I applied to.

Anyone know how long it takes to go UR or get a decision after going complete?

july 7 is when they start sending acceptances. You go under review a day or two after going complete

July 7? kinda late for starting eh?

Are they pretty much first wave, then late waitlist admits?

When is their OCI bidding deadline?

Penn finishes their cycle way before C/N. So its not that late. Also, I haven't heard of them doing a waitlist, they just wait like a week and give out a few more offers, then reject the rest.

OCI deadline is July 10. But they leave spots open for transfers. It's not a disadvantage if you deposit after that.
