We should start a support group.[/quote]

I kind of wish I was 1/12 and nothing. I'm 1/12 and 1/17 but I didn't hear anything on Friday...[/quote]


Your stats are GREAT--I don't think you have anything to worry about! :mrgreen:

Haha, I think they're pretty good for Penn, but I kind of worry that maybe I did something weird on my app. I'm really hoping for SOME scholarship money, so I'm concerned about it.

Good luck to you!

+1 to both this and the support group. I'm thinking punch and cookies. Everyone loves cookies.

For those who are stuck on 1/12, is it your first or second UR? I had a 1/3 and a 1/12 review and haven't heard anything since. Others with later dates have already been Accepted, Waitlisted, and Held. I have a 175/4.0...what do you think they're doing over there? Any reason why I may have been passed up, yet not at least 'Held'?

Eeesh, I'm willing to bet you're getting YP'd if TLS mantra is to be believed.

Also, is there an "Under Review" and an "Under Committee Review" I'm UCR as of 1/12 if that makes a difference.

You should probably not worry about Penn unless you have a compelling reason to be in Philly since your numbers make HYS and big scholarships at CCN good possibilities. There's a good chance you will be WLed at Penn unless you convince them you'll actually attend. If you get in, you're going to be a really strong candidate for the Levy.

How should I demonstrate to them that I would really consider attending? Should I write a short e-mail or a longer LOCI?

Just wait and see first. There's a good chance you'll get in, but Penn does WL some candidates with numbers as high as yours. Did you submit one of the supplemental essays/a Why Penn? If you do get waitlisted, then write a LOCI.

Couldn't imagine a scenario where I would write one that didn't come across as completely contrived.

Just to follow up on this (if anyone else cares haha), it does say legal writing is still graded pass/fail, so they haven't decided to change it (yet).

I wrote the art/literature essay. I had a great topic for it, and I figured that so few people would choose that option that it might make my app stand out (hopefully in a good way).

We'll find out...
