the site says:

J.D. PROGRAM INSIGHT OF THE WEEK

As per our rolling admissions process, Early Decision candidates will begin to receive decisions starting today and through December 22; Regular Decision candidates will also begin to receive decisions prior to December 22. It is our policy that every application is read by at least two members of the Admissions Committee – often times more than two. We appreciate your patience.


Good stuff, thanks.


+1. I love how Penn is clear about when decisions will start coming out, and when they will stop coming out. Saves a hell of a lot of time being neurotic about this stuff.


+1. I wish other schools would follow their lead on this...


let us be neurotic until exactly the 22nd then, shall we? :wink:

I'm still waiting to be read by even one person. I don't know how they've decided they don't want me already when apparently no one's read my file.

PS Penn: If you see this my frustration is not stemming from actual dislike; it's only because I love you so much!

Before the 22nd for the first batch. At least that's confirmation that we'll get news before the holidays!

Any RD status updated to 12/8 or 12/9?

I guess we shouldn't anticipate RD decisions until someone's status changes/updates? ED applicants all saw the updates, many of them yesterday.

Didn't I read somewhere that you don't necessarily see if your file has been accessed, since the adcomm can access your file remotely? In which case, maybe we can hold out hope for Friday/Monday? Or am I being too hopeful/anxious?

It was Monday last year.

I am just trying to get the thread active because Quakers need more love. :mrgreen:

"My UCR hasn't changed since 11/4 (even now), so as I speculated before, changing dates do not appear indicative of much."

From an admitted student in the ED thread.

I got a call from a 215 number yesterday in class (almost 9PM) and I was really confused. I was like oh crap is this Penn already? I'm not even under committee review...
Looked up the number and found out it's Red Cross asking for blood... these people are persistent.

So I fail and have been busy with finals. I just checked my status and it updated from 11/30 UCR to 12/6 UCR. I am trying to catch up on my TLS stalking but do we have any idea what that means?

I believe it tells you what your decision is when it gets to that point.

It will change to "Offer of Admission" if you are accepted, but I received a phone call a day before it showed up on my status checker.
