Does "hold your file for further review" mean wait listed? If yes then count me in.

I think there is a subtle distinction between a hold and a wait list

I don't think so. I think that means they're literally not ready to make a decision on you yet. You can still get WL from here, but you can also still get another decision. Congrats on surviving the slaughter!

Just got "held" for further review. Is this a WL? Above both 75ths, btw. So I guess Penn is just on a rampage.

Gah! Sooo many! Is their strategy to have a much smaller class this year because not everyone they're taking is going to accept their offer by far. Obviously most won't.

I'm also acknowledging that it's super pathetic that I'm avoiding my email right now. It's not like it makes any difference whether I get the news now or later.

Guess not. It's a hold. I got the same thing.

I got in on the first acceptance day, so not new. I'm really sorry if I tricked you there :oops:

If anyone does get in, come join the 2 facebook spots going on.

Run by Penn students, has a discussion board (could be helpful for finding roomies)

The group:http://www.facebook.com/#!/home.php?sk=group_153921794659179&ap=1Run by some TLSers, lets you click on other member's profiles so you can creep a bit

I got "held" too. I guess it's not a WL because my status checker changed to:

Current Status: Under Committee Review
Current Status Date: 1/7/2011

Maybe it's YP? Here's the email:

Dear ________,

Thank you for your application to the University of Pennsylvania Law School. The Admissions Committee has completed its preliminary review of your application and has decided to hold your file for further review.

The admissions process at Penn Law is a deliberative process. Every file is read by numerous members of the Admissions Committee. As of this date, your file has been reviewed by at least two members of the Committee and we are impressed with your credentials. We are continuing our review of your file however, and thus have not yet rendered a decision.

Please feel free to submit additional supporting documents, such as one additional letter of recommendation, an updated resume, or an additional two page essay on the topic of your choice.

...

Sincerely,

Renee C. Post
Associate Dean
