September submit here, complete also in October. UR 11/23. I'm a reverse splitter, so I'm not surprised by the wait..
Have you gone UR?


I went UR 11/28 and then 1/3. I'm at both medians almost exactly. You haven't gone UR for a second time have you?

Im UR 11/22 and 1/3

What are Penn's medians? I've only seen 25% and 75%. I am above 75% for GPA and I would guess around the median/maybe slightly below median for LSAT (169). Wrote a supplemental essay.


Penn's LSAT median was 170 last year, don't know GPA off the top of my head but it's 3.85ish I think.

LSAC's is for the C/O 2013. Then again, there isn't much difference between a 3.85 (C/O 2013) and a 3.86 (C/O of 2014).

I was UR 12/19 and 12/21, hoping for a decision soon, but I doubt we hear anything before Friday.

Penn advertises that every app goes through two reviewers, which is awesome, but what happens if one gives you a thumbs up and the other a thumbs down?

There's a no-holds-barred cage match between the two reviewers, and whoever's left standing makes the decision.

You're not still stuck on 12/19? How dare you be different???

Also, it's possible each of Penn's reviewers assigns a number value to your application. A total figure at or above a certain point is an admit. Just a theory, but I know a bunch of undergrad admissions that work that way.

I have almost the same dates. 11/2 complete. 12/21 and 1/10 UR. Interesting. Although it probably means nothing in light of Penn's kooky admissions process.

I seem to be the only sub 170, but since Penn's 25th is a 166 I'm glad I at least jumped that hurdle

I hope the one who gave me a thumbs up is the big guy in the back

Yes it is, sorry. This doesn't mean anything special right? Just the 2nd guy reviewing it now...

I suppose, but maybe it means something too. There seem to be a lot of people who are stuck at 1st UR, but I don't know if that means anything either. I'm afraid I am not too helpful

I think some people have been stuck at complete/first review, but I'm pretty sure that most people who had 2 URs were in the next group of decisions. Now someone who's been stuck on second UR for a month can correct me...
