Just one -- diversity.


Same. And gotta say, keeping it to one page was annoying.

Penn is awesome. My guess is that they will not make you wait too much longer. How goes the construction of the new LS building? I was there in July, and it appeared to be a giant rubble factory. Then again, if you're going to do lots of messy demo on a law school building, might as well do it during summer break.


Still only frames. I don't know when they are doing the exteriors, but I can't tell what it would look like yet. Only if they would build a parking lot to go with it...

Jumping around LSN from last year they definitely call RD applicants as well. IDK If they email some as well but all the random people I've picked have gotten calls.

Whats the Philly area code?

The renderings looked pretty sweet, that's for sure. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Though I've been to Philly about 14,000 times, this past summer marked my first visit to the Penn campus. I like.

It's a gem ... also since there are enough grad students it isn't so UG/fratty everywhere.

Penn has an active Greek life, but I never thought it was overly fratty (a lot of my friends go there, so I've visited numerous times). The Greek kids seem pretty chill for the most part; Penn isn't nearly as brotastic as schools like Vandy or Emory.

I know, I used to party hop during Penn Relays. But for the most part I don't see them now, there is plenty of social life with grad students only (with free drinks and food).

I went to Spring Fling and was kinda unimpressed with the greek life's ability to throw parties.

Then again, my school is like the King of private school trustfund babies wearing letters across their chest, so my PoV may be slightly skewed.

Well I didn't have anything to compare because I wasn't in college at the time so the partying was pretty good from my PoV :lol:

Anyone know if status checkers change in addition to phone calls? I just went UCR yesterday, so my hopes aren't up for tomorrow or anything, just wondering in case (fingers crossed) I see some movement next week.

There are some ED and RD lurking. Nobody has found out anything yet. Its probably safe to say ED will hear this week, with RD hearing in the next week or two...

Question - do they call you even if you're denied?

Ha ok just curious. I'm pretty sure I'm a ding, so I'm gonna flip my lid if my phone rings tomorrow. And if I answer and they say "deny"...I don't even...

Would love Penn... I've been stuck at 'application received and processing' since 11/21 :( Good luck to all EDers this week! Hope those acceptances come in.
