Just got the waitlist e-mail!

How crazy is the UPenn waitlist? Do they abuse it like UVA? Or are they more conservative with it?

Waitlisted today. Not too bummed since I have other offers that would have trumped the most likely scenario from Penn (either no or very little money).

Submitted a LOCI/ Addendum today since I'm still UCR. No rejection/WL yet.

edit: wow they received it quickly, email was responded to within 5 minutes.

Confirmed my interest in staying on the waitlist. I prefer Penn only a little more than the school I will probably commit to soon, so I'm not going to think much about the WL. Does anyone know how easy it is to get off, or did I basically just get soft-rejected?

I'd deposit at the other school and stay on the WL. You never know what may happen, and what your particular position (I mean that relatively) on the WL is.

Just make sure that the other school allows you to stay on WLs. I know some don't.

Thanks for this information. I actually did not know that. I will be sure to check it out.

NP. Check the deposit form/site. They usually have some sort of agreement, and it would be stipulated there. There is also info about double depositing, and refund if you withdraw usually.

I was waitlisted yesterday as well. A little surprised that I wasn't flat out rejected.

I applied 2/3, got the complete email 2.15 and have been UCR since 3/8. Should I send a LOCI at this point or wait a bit longer?

Standard procedure for LOCI, if you choose to do one, is three months.

LOL! Penn is my ultimate Hail Mary app. In a last-ditch effort, I'm retaking in June, and if I do well enough (170+), I might as well apply early next cycle so I'll have a realistic shot at my current super-reaches, including Penn. (If I score around the same or worse, I'll happily matriculate at BC/ND/W&M.)

Still no movement from first UCR 3/8...at this point I'm just confused but I assume we're running out of time for more acceptances... :?

Best of luck! Even if you get on the WL and retake into a good score, there would still be a good chance getting in!

Hey guys,

Did you receive a decision as soon as your status date updated a second time, or is there typically a lag (or more date updates?)

I had my first UCR on 3/8 and haven't updated since. I have some deadlines coming up, so I called the admissions office (they were really nice about it) and she said I should be hearing "very soon," but I had thought that people here were having three or so updates before getting a decision. She also said that if I send an email to contactadmissions@law.upenn.edu and let them know about my date they can keep that in mind, but she seemed to think I would hear back before then.

Also, is it still the case that in is a phone call, WL and rejection are emails?

Sorry for all the repeat questions, my searches haven't been too helpful.

Thanks so much and good luck everyone!!!
