Held at Penn 2011

Postby lawschool567 » Wed Feb 16, 2011 1:22 pm

Was held at Penn (applied ED). Trying to gauge how many fellow TLS members are in the same boat, and thought it would be appropriate to create a space for those in similar situations to voice concerns and update each other on notifications.

I submitted supporting documents as well - a LOCI and an additional essay. No clue when we can expect to hear back, but I'm really hoping it is sooner rather then later. I was held on 12/9.

Held 2/4. Sent additional essay, essentially the Why Penn I didn't write in the first place. I'm guessing no holds have held back?


Edit: i meant heard back haha

Held 1/21. Sent a LOCI the following week. Thinking of sending another essay. Do you guys think we still have shots at scholarships?

I really have no idea, but my guess would be no.

Quoted from the main Penn thread:

"Hey guys! I was part of the hold group in mid-January. Got the phone call from Dean Post around noon. Didn't send in any additional info after the hold. (I guess they're not happy with December test takers....looool :roll: )

Good luck!"
