Dinged an hour ago via e-mail. Not surprising! Good luck to the rest of you.

I guess I can give up on getting a call today. Should've sent in that grade request sooner.

No. You can still get waitlisted off of a hold. Basically you've just been thrown back into the pool, but you should write a LOCI if you really want to get in.

It should automatically be transmitted by LSAC. You can always contact UPenn to advise that you have submitted a new LOR, and to ask for confirmation once they have received it.

I got waitlisted yesterday. I'm going to write an LOCI and send an additional LoR. I have 2 LORs to choose from, one of which is from a prof that got his Masters and PhD at Penn. Would a letter from a Penn alumnus matter or should I just go with whichever I think is strongest?

I would go with the alumnus.

I've been UCR since 1/3 and I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I think my numbers are in the neighborhood (3.8x and 173), and I'm wondering if I should send a LOCI to show them that I'm really interested in Penn. I didn't write a "Why Penn" or anything. Any consensus on whether or not this is a good idea?
