Me too. Didn't leave a message. This is slowly going to turn all of us crazy.

from all the info we have the number will not be an "unknown" but rather a PA number. so only don't get your hopes up unless its the cola company from penn asking for vinny

edit: just bought season tickets at my current school (a sign of my pessimism). I wish all these schools would just hurry up and decide either way

Literally laughed out loud. If that happens to anyone else, we know something is up...

I do hope UPENN is reading this an laughing. I hope they call me to accept (well of course I do) and that they pretend that their name is Vinny.

I'm just curious as to what a UR 7/2 or 7/3 --> 7/9 means (e.g. good/bad/ugly)

I was checking the forums all day for news of whether the schools to which I applied were updating/admitting anyone; this is like 0L applications all over again, and it's driving me crazy!

I called today to ask them where they were on my file and to gently remind them about my Berkeley situation. The lady who answered was extremely nice - explained that most of the adcom was on vacation last week. She told me that one person had reviewed my file and a second needed to before a decision could be made. She then told me she wasn't sure if they'd get a decision in by the end of the week. I thanked her.

A few hours later, I got in via email. Anyone else get in today? I think they did me a solid.

In at Penn today! So very excited! I visited the law school last year and absolutely loved the place, so I'm looking forward to it; plus, I have family there.

For those who are curious:

Applied: 6/26
UR: 6/28
In: 7/9

Are you planning on withdrawing your other apps? The rest of us would greatly appreciate it.

Congrats - what were your status updates? And are you taking UPenn over Berkeley?

Thanks. I don't remember my first update, but the second was 6/28. Status says offer of admission 7/9.

I'm probably going to be straight with Berkeley. I want to go there over Penn, but if Penn lets me see if I can get into HSC/NYU and Berkeley doesn't, I'll probably go Penn. I'll let them know that and see how they respond.

Thanks for asking. Good luck buddy.

Congrats to the recent admits. Maybe I'll call tomorrow if that is the key. ;)

Thanks! I don't think I ever posted them, as someone PM'd me earlier about them.

Anyway,

School: T25-30
Class Rank: Top 7%ish
LR, 2 CALI, Moot Court, Etc., Etc.

EDIT: Also, I noticed there was some discussion earlier in the thread about whether decisions were coming via phone or email. Mine came by email.

I'm debating calling them. Not sure what I should say if I do, though. I don't want them to get upset.

How many of you are under "committee review"/ how long have you been U/R?

I am, and it has been that way since at least 6/28. I don't remember if I was UR before that.

Same here. Good news is we weren't auto-dings. I think they are starting to admit non-auto-admits, but they are comparing are apps against the late applicants, as well as waiting for the HYSCCN accepted students to withdraw their apps.
