Here are my dates:

Complete 12/10/10-->UCR 1/10/11-->UCR 1/18/11

Any estimates as to when I will receive a final decision?

So...if I'm UCR (not UR) 11/18, is that good/bad/unable to tell? :?

Penn is a stretch for me, anyway, but I'd trip balls if I got in.

Can someone clarify what 2nd UCR means? I was UCR on 1/12/11. Now my status is still UCR but the date has been updated to 1/18/11. Is the update the 2nd UCR?

Everyone goes UCR, that's what they call it at Penn. I guess you are borderline and they are still trying to decide. I think you are early enough that haven't been dinged is a good sign.

Everyone your file goes to someone else it updates to the date that happened. Since you are guaranteed to be read by 2 readers, you will have 2 updates (or more).

Hmm, indeed, indeed. My app was only complete 12/15, and I haven't been checking the status checker everyday...bah, that's what I get for not being attentive. Anyway, thanks R6.

My lack of updating after my second UCR on the 11th makes me think I'm destined for the same fate as the other reaches I'm waiting on... I'm gonna just start thinking about it as though my cycle's over and I'm just waiting to hear on money.

Thanks for the clarification. I seriously hope that my not applying for the MA my application indicated I would be applying for will not hurt my application. If admitted, I would attend and then apply to the MA my first year.

We all updated at different dates. As a matter of fact my 2nd update came much later than others but I still got called during the first wave. Don't give up on dates. You got a holiday break in there too who knows how many files they got through and how they are ordered.

Usually following this without commenting, but thanks for the clarification re: UCR, R6!

Went UCR on 1/18, not sure if it's first or second. Went complete on 12/14 :)

You and me, man, we're taking the ride together.

ETA: Except your LSAT is about 8 points higher than mine. ;) No biggie.

Ah yes, the lack of an "avg LSAT score" on TLS...which is 170.5 (13 pt jump? oh yeah haha)...though I wrote an addendum a/b the trials and tribulations of taking a night bus (164) vs. a bullet train (177) to take the test at my closest testing center 430 miles away (hoping it helps, b/c it's true haha)

Regardless, good luck! Will be checking back on this thread

I hate taking the LSAT in a foreign country I took mine in Paris, and had to miss my second time in Istanbul because of a flight delay.

FINALLY under committee review as of 1/18. I went complete on 12/6. I really, really like Penn, so eager for a decision. Let the final wait begin.
