Congrats again! Sadly, for people with second updates today, it doesn't seem like great news.

In via phone call. Top 1-2 percent (unsure) at T20. Complete around 6/24.

Well, they're from T30 schools. That's not all they accept. They're just auto-admits. Not really concerned at this point.

Correct, but it certainly means we did not make it past the first round.

That's pretty awesome. I can only imagine it would help once you send in official stats.

I emailed every single school with a PDF of the class rank page and asked my registrar to do the same!

Penn would be awesome. Now I'm scared I didn't get called...

I think everyone that did not make the first round of admission offers got a 6/28 update. There is not one TLS'er who has not either been admitted, or got the update (provided that they were complete before).

Anyone know how long the turnaround has been between sending stuff like official transcripts and Dean's certs and having them checked off on the status checker?

I'm pretty sure my Dean's Cert was mailed out 6/22, and my official transcript on M 6/25, but as of today (saturday), neither is checked off.

I'm sure there's something like a 1-2 day processing delay, but I would have hoped both would be checked so that I could be "complete"...

Anybody suffering a similar delay? Thx.

Admissions told me that a lot of them are on vacation the past two weeks; so that may be the reason for your delay.

You were dinged just now? Sorry to hear that.

What were your stats, if you don't mind?

Best of luck wherever else you applied.
