Congrats to you all!

- I fear that this might be doom for me though. Fingers crossed for a phone call after the deposit deadline.

What is the deposit deadline?

Ughh... seeing these admits with similar stats and such should make me happy, but it's just making me more nervous.

For those of you freaking out, take heart. I didn't get my acceptance email last year until 7/18 7/19 (went complete at the beginning of July, maybe right after the 4th holiday).

Deposit deadline is 7/16. A bunch of other stuff is due shortly thereafter. They sometimes make notes on if you get admitted or pay your deposit after those deadlines though.

IU-B is legit. Much higher ranked than my school. Still feel like I should have been in one of these acceptance batches... getting very sad :cry:

I'm still waiting on every other app: Columbia, NYU, Harvard (dreamland), and Yale (yeah right). So if I get in to any of those, I'd withdraw from Penn. I'm concerned though, that I won't hear from other schools until after the deposit deadline. 7/16 seems mighty early.

Also someone asked for my stats so here they are if I didn't post them already: 5% at T30, moot court, law review, 2 yrs WE (Teach for America).

I went complete on 7/6. U/R 7/9 (I think). Admit yesterday (7/10) at 4 PM.

Good luck to all.

So, this thread was pretty dead today -- were there just no admits/dings?

Calm down shock259. Shouting doesn't help. Unless you want to call Penn, tell them your name, and then shout at them.

Good luck to the rest of you.
