Dinged from WL! I guess they don't need high LSAT scores at this stage of the game.

I wonder if that's why they kept me-- my gpa is pretty high.

Best of luck to you. I hope someone else here (a regular poster, not someone who just registers to brag) gets in.

Thanks man and I'm sorry you didn't get it. I'm not planning on receiving an acceptance by any means but it would be a nice surprise. Good luck...where are you going this fall?

Wow I survived too. I agree with the above posters that it must be the high GPA. Whatever the reason, I'll take it!

It might be time to draft up another LOCI.

High LSAT. GPA around 25th, and I survived.

For now, at least.

I too survived for now too. My LSAT is above their 75th, but my GPA is a little below their 25th.

Good luck to everybody else looking elsewhere... who knows how long this will last.

Greetings from Prague,

I just checked, and I'm another survivor. LSAT >>>75th, GPA<<25th. I'll be thrilled if they can make a decision before the 28th, as I will probably have set plans by then.

I survived too. I called them about two weeks ago and spoke to someone. I also sent a LOCI, expressing my sincere love for Penn. I sent the LOCI on 6/16 so they may have seen it at the last minute but I'd bet that they already made up their mind at that point. I am a splitter 175, 2.98

Survived here too, LSAT at 25th, GPA above 75th. Definitely drafting a LOCI, though I wonder how much of a difference it would make this late in the game. Humm.

Probably not too much but I'm drafting another for the heck of it.

Same here. Thought I was done for sure after they started taking low LSAT/high GPA-types.

Rejected today by mail. This was expected, and not a big deal.

No, I got a letter in the mail. Haven't looked at my status checker in months, though, so I'm not sure what it says.

I'm not sure. I checked the status checker yesterday but didn't notice the update date. Too lazy to check back now.
