Anyone from the 12/23 batch still out there with me?

It was my 2nd UCR and no e-mail or phone call yet.

For those who received email decisions, when was your last UR date?

You'll be fine unless they YP. You're above one 75th and close to the other.

I'm 12/23, but it was my first UCR date.

Edit: Still stuck at 12/23, btw.

I know. Harvard rejections are going right now too. I'm not emotionally invested in Harvard like I am with Penn, but I just don't feel like taking a double hit right now. I had a feeling that's what was coming today though.

@123kl - have you not heard anything yet?

WL by email, 174/3.4. UR date 12/23. I don't think I'll stay on the WL, but I haven't completely made up my mind. I'm already in at NYU (can someone explain how I got into NYU and got WL at Penn? Must be splitter magic.) and have a dean's scholarship offer from Mich - I can't see myself on the WL, but I don't want to make the decision right now, I'll wait until the emotional impact/confusion wear off.

I wonder why they only did a couple acceptances before sending out this massive slaughter. They could've at least cushioned it a little more.

yeah, it was my first UCR.

Thanks, I'm not too broken up about this because I'm so excited about NYU and Michigan.

Did you read the email? I was considering staying on the WL until I read that they would start reviewing waitlisted candidates in mid-May. I don't think waiting until then, with chances of very little if any $, will outweigh NYU or Mich w/ $$.

You might have ties to Penn that I don't, but that's just my opinion.

I have your stats and got deferred NYU ED, if I get Penn RD that will be cycle symmetry.

Those are exactly my thoughts as well. Mich w/$ and NYU w/o $ both beat Penn at full price. I just want to make sure I mull the decision over for a day or two.

I saw that too, is there no way off the waitlist before then? Like if you submit a why Penn and you didn't before, update with good fall grades, and do well on a Feb retake does anyone think there's a possibility of getting off earlier?

Yeah I don't mean cushioning the thread. I just mean in general for them to have such a negative day. I just would've wanted more than a trickle of admits on the first day giving decisions after a break. Hopefully they'll resume phone calls again to balance out the day and a some of you will hear good news. Good luck to everyone still left!
