Any thoughts as to whether it's a good or bad sign to get an interview request? I don't think it's bad because they're definitely interested in you to the extent that they would take the time to interview you... is it a bad sign if you don't get asked?

I had an interview on Tuesday, and was accepted on Wednesday. I think the interview is a great sign. Dean Post will ask you about your reasons for wanting to transfer to Penn. You should also develop some insightful questions to ask her at the conclusion of your interview. Good luck.

Dinged just now. Can't remember when I originally went UR (think it was late June) but did get an updated UR 7/8.

This waiting is brutal. My productivity at work is pretty much 0.

I think that Penn has a deposit deadline coming up tomorrow, so hopefully some more news comes out friday or early next week

TheZoid, it looks like it's just me and you still here. We're probably on some sort of wait list and won't hear until whenever their next deposit deadline is. Best of luck

Haha same brother. A little surprised, to be honest, but oh well. I was fairly committed to staying at my current school anyway.

Sorry about the rejections, guys.

Anyone planning to attend though? I got accepted two weeks ago and I decided to go. I also have been living in Philadelphia for the past five years so if you have any questions about the area, I'd love to help.
