Being as though I'm UR 6/28, I find that to be slightly misleading. It would be nice to get an acceptance so I don't have to start GULC's Write-On Competition tomorrow. It would suck to waste time and money on it and not attend.

Perhaps by "a week," they mean approx 5 business days. Considering a lot of adcomma werw out last week, that might be slightly delayed now. For those who were complete more than a week ago, then you're neither an auto-admit nor auto-deny, so they're probably weighing your app against those they received the past 2 weeks.

HTH. Same boat here, but I'm trying to remain patient, esp bc I really, really want Penn

Well, we are on seven business days now. Is that what they're counting as a week? lol Btw, I thought you wanted HYS.

On their site it says that all decisions on apps completed by the 15th should be made by the 15th. So because Sat. and Sun. are the 14th and 15th, I would imagine we would know by Friday.

Apps have to be completed by the 15th. If it's completed before then, you should have a decision. I would imagine that the person who got in on the 16th must have gone complete on the 15th. Either that, or they just don't follow their own deadlines.

How about someone call and ask when the 6/28 people will find out? Anyone feeling daring?

If someone will call, they should give a good reason for needing to know, like the person yesterday.

Whenever I call, they always look up my application. I don't see how a fake name will work.

I think that's part of their regular 1L application process.
