haranv and isthefatlady, how long were the two of you "under review" before getting a notification?

I went UR this week, so I'm curious about the turnaround since school X wants a deposit soon

I have it. Their status checker indicates if an acceptance offer has been sent.

Prob not. FYI, according to their TLS profile, Penn places a heavy emphasis on school rank. This might explain the T4 dings yesterday. http://www.top-law-schools.com/penn-law-school.html

So, looking at Yahoo Groups, the next possible day of admissions is tomorrow.
Then theres the July 13-15 time frame. This year and last year looks like that acceptances are done via phone call with a follow up letter.

Cheers to hoping.

Anyone know if admissions is in today or if they took an extended weekend?
