I'm guessing the 1/3s first, then possibly those of us with second UR yesterday and Wednesday

I submitted October 20 something, had 2 under review dates, december 21st ish and January 3rd.

I was just on the phone with a friend when I got a beep and recognized the area code. I started yelling at her that I had to go while she was in the middle of telling me a "really important story". Oops.

Good luck to everyone!

It could be a good thing. I'm 12/19 to 1/11 and I'm WL material at best.

Do you receive eamil updates on dates of "under review"? I got a "complete" email shortly before thanks givings and never heard anything back from them...Also there is not any status checker available. How do your guys find out the first and second "under review" date?

Just got the call! My last update was before Christmas, and I just had a Chicago update so I've been freaking out over that all day. Totally caught me off guard. Still really stoked.

So you did not have another status update for Penn in January?

Only one update so far, they won't reject me with just that, right?

No I was 12/19 - 1/11, but I submitted way after you, I think. I wrote a badass Why Penn that had some humor/sports reference in it. I can only hope that they will find a female hockey-lover endearing.

No, it still says 12/20. I had honestly put it out of my mind for this week.

I hope they do too! and hope that we're both making the tough M or P decision by the end of the day today. :D!

I wonder if it's too late to write one. My personal statement had quite a bit of Why Penn in it, tied back to personal experiences, but I'm thinking it might not be a bad idea to write a dedicated essay. Thoughts? Maybe?

It would SERIOUSLY mess me up if I got Penn. I'd have so much thinking/visiting to do.

But look at me getting all ahead of myself.
