(215) 898-7400 was the number that called me. That's the number for the admissions office.

I burst out laughing in class when I saw this and my teacher gave me an evil look - I need a Penn ED acceptance so I don't have to care what he thinks anymore.

out of curiosity, are the people who have gotten answers in possession of last names starting in letters towards the beginning of the alphabet, and responseless individual's from P-Z?


west coast
end of alphabet


and i submitted 11/13, UR 11/15, 11/23 then phone call

My UCR date changed to 12/9/2010. I am an ED applicant with a 167 and 3.91.

Seeing the other acceptances with similar numbers to me, give me hope but also seeing those numbers make me worried that I won't be accepted because they do have similar numbers. Ugh, now the waiting will me make sick...

It says its on hold and to update my application.
Problem is I already sent in an additional essay and updated resume.
Also, I tried to call to verify and was sent to a message saying the office was closed today.

If you have no real preference between UVA and Penn, then yeah, I would ED to UVA.

i do have a preference, but i feel like being held, my odds are well below 50 so the safe access to a good school might be UVA. not like my fall grades will be spectacular working 40 hrs a week anyway. i might be able to negotiate some higher grades with my professors if i mention the circumstances, but who knows?

please don't quote this. this post is probably not something i want coming back to bite me.

but typically if i didn't get in ED, why would i get in RD? makes no sense.

yup. in all likelihood a rejection/WL, but since they only call in the morning/afternoon, part of me is still hoping and praying.

I didn't go UCR until 12/6, 12/7 so I'm holding out hope for Friday.. Then I will probably give up/sob.
