I've been UR since 11/16 too. There was only one other person that got admitted going UR the same day in this thread I think. I have a strong feeling we'll hear from them tomorrow or monday


That would be nice. I'm really surprised at how fast they are going through apps. I'm not even under review at any other school I've applied to yet.

yea.. I designated UF as pluto reach.. as in the odds of me getting in there are so long, they stretch all the way to pluto. Ive applied to UF for undergrad, grad school and now law school. So far ive been denied there every time. Maybe the streak ends? I doubt it.( at least im consistent)


anyways... If I get into Penn State, I will be extremly happy.

Congrats to everyone who is in so far and, to those who are still waiting, hang in there! The admissions office is working hard to provide decisions quickly and efficiently. I hope to see a lot of you at the Open House in the spring! I will be giving tours and answering your questions, so plan on a great trip to central PA :)

are you going to have TLS somewhere on your name tag? Otherwise, assuming i get in, im going to be spending too much of the tour trying to match tls names to real life names, and miss out on everything..


just a thought

If I am able to come I will, indeed, put TLS name on my nametag...

anyways. I called PSU today and asked about how long it takes to be in review. The lady was actually nice and told me that they are busy working on making decisions, and it takes anywheres from a couple of days to 3 weeks from once your application goes from in review to decision renderded. Once a decision is made, they will update your status and send a nice email. Depending on when you go in ( near a break, finals, midterms etc) it may take longer. So for those of us who went in reviw around the 16th, If we dont hear anything by next tuesday, I would bet that our decision would be around december first. ( just a guess)

Those that went in review earlier, it should be anytime soon.

they probably left right after my phone call... I think I might have scared them away!

you should hear something soon. im not sure when they go on thanksgiving break ( i would be surprised if they did anything over that period) though.

I should have heard already. I asked her if in-state gets reviewed first, and she said they are reviewed based on when they are submitted-- so mine was definitly reviewed a LONG time ago. Which means they aren't accepting me.. which I find bizarre and a bummer :(.

A common tactic law schools use is to put applicants they've reviewed in a separate stack that will be reviewed later in the admissions process. If law schools take everyone really early, they may leave out students with good numbers that apply in December. So they take this stack and compare them to applications that come in later in the year. I'm not saying Penn State uses this tactic, but maybe that gives you some insight.

I wouldnt worry about it. If they dont accept you, they're missing out, not you.

Besides- I dont realy put a lot of stock in these conversations. You really never know where in the pile your application is. Seton Hall told me that they make decisions on those that applied early, but wont release them until december/ january. So we wont know either way if were in or out.
