jeez..

maybe they have something else that contributed to the dings..?

I mean they must have, I guess? But nothing that was at all obvious. Early submission, no C/F issues, etc. Geez.


I dunno... seems super weird IMO... something was definitely missing, or, perhaps, they just put NO effort into applications like their personal statement. I think the LSs have become very against high scorers with apparent entitlement.

Note: Not saying all high scorers are entitled nor do I even think it's wrong to have some sense of it to a certain extent as long as one remains a bit grounded. You've worked hard, you do deserve it as long as you continue to put forth the effort.

I'd be inclined to think maybe minimal effort too, esp. if they were a random on LSN, but given their TLS presence I wouldn't think that would be the case. Could be that they accidentally forgot or really screwed up one part of the application, an LoR writer trashed them, something like that. (For what it's worth, they put it down to shitty UG. Which doesn't really make me feel better. :lol: )

Definitely makes one nervous though. I think it's psychologically easy to interpret relatively high % chance of admittance as definitely yes. An 85% chance of acceptance still means one in six or seven with your numbers won't get in.


Yeah - totally true. I wonder if it is similar to MBAs where they get rejected b/c the university has enough 3.9x / 17x Ivy -> V15 paralegal for two year candidates.

Yikes... Yikes yikes yikes.

You'd think being an alum would be just about the best soft you could have...

I think it would. at the end of the day they want alumni who will donate and rep the name. What better way to get a loyal student than to have gone there for both degrees lol

Need your advice, guys. Applying to Penn right now. I am also planning a visit at the end of January. Do you think I should submit a Why Penn now with the application or write it after my visit and ask them to add it to my app?

If you have enough now to write a great Why Penn I would write and submit now, but if you are really counting on the visit to add meaningful content, maybe wait?

Not counting on the visit (i.e. I could write something decent now), but it would certainly strengthen the content.

Maybe they are pulling a WUSTL which wouldn't be terribly hard given their current rank and class size.
