Here's to hoping I'm right about the second part and wrong about the first.


What about the 12/6 people lol?

My "analysis" didn't go back that far. I noticed my status date changed yesterday, and after comparing the 12/14 people with the 12/15 people, then looking at Penn last year on LSN, I am now shaking my head in discouragement.

No need to be worried on your end; you should be getting a call soon too.

just to clarify- your theory is that people who's second UCR is 12/15 are acceptances and the 14th are WL/dings? And this is based on the #s of people with these updates or last years numbers?

Stig - Your numbers dominate. You should be at Chicago or Columbia next year (unless Penn happens to be your top choice).

Went UCR for the first time today, complete since 11/11...I am starrydreamz's number twin (and now I feel like a stalker, lol). Really hoping for Penn, I'd take it (with $$) over any of CCN. They seem to take a fair number of kids from my undergrad each year, so I'm pretty hopeful.

Are you referring to the people who went UCR for the first time on 12/14 or those who were updated to 12/14?

Sorry. I didn't mean to be confusing.

My guess is based on the numbers of TLS members with 12/14 UCR versus the people with 12/15 UCR. Also, from LSN, Penn seems to not like splitters very much but favors candidates with both a high GPA (>3.8) (<- supposed to be "3.8" ) and a LSAT in the 170-173 range.

For my own sake, I hope my guess is wrong; but I am doubtful.

I looked at TLS members with numbers in profiles who said they had a 12/14 UCR update date, but I didn't note whether it was a first or second update.

Please remember I am merely speculating, but decision dates from last year lead me to believe that things will start to move in here very soon.

It makes sense that they would sort by numbers to review, but I'm sure that at least some people with lower numbers will switch into an admit stack, and there will be a couple high number rejection surprises. I think the second review date is probably more telling than the first one. But this is all just speculation. :)

I feel you. Speculation suddenly became very fun. After reading this thread all day at work, I had to chime in.

Reading your comment instilled a little hope in me, which I'm not sure if is good or bad at this point. :?

Haha yeah. I've been speculating on all the schools I've applied to. I don't know how healthy it is, but I really have noticed patterns that ended up happening. It seems that each school really does have a system. But I'm sure that when people go under review they're in a pile based on their numbers, but as long as a school's "holistic" (and a couple are anyway), it's not set in stone.

I like the prediction about the 12/15 group! And hai there numbers twin. I already have another number twin actually, so we'll just be triplets.

So food for thought: I'm kinda close with one of the Board of Trustees at my Uni. He's a lawyer, graduate of Penn Law, and mentioned he was friends with the Dean of Penn when I told him I was applying to his alma mater. He said he'd "talk to him" for me.

Is this unethical, or just good networking? Let the debate begin.

Networking. This is how American (and the rest of the world) functions. Play every card you can, (and toss my name in there, if you can :D )

You seem to be having an excellent cycle thus far. Are your numbers both above Penn's 75th percentiles?

I never cease to laugh when there is an "8" next to a ")" because TLS always turns then into a smiley with sunglasses! 8) 8)

Complete 11/10 with nada. Hope of something this year is gone but hoping I'll be in one of the first waves in Jan.

A few of us around your complete date just went UCR today. I was complete 11/3. Scroll back a page or so and you'll see others.
