Rockstars get their Levy invites in February, everybody else gets to wait until March.

That awkward moment when this post makes you go back and re-check not only this but every status checker (including Golden Gate) only to see nothing has changed.

So after my 2 recent UCRs, should I be expecting to hear back on Friday? After waiting so long to change from being complete I feel like hearing back so soon after going UR would be a miracle

Yeah... the law school application process is basically constant disappointment with a few marked moments of happiness every couple of weeks...

good luck to you guys waiting!

for those who have been accepted-- Anyone else underwhelmed by the admitted students mailing from Penn? Mine was a big floppy thin envelope with one book on faculty, and a one page letter ("personal" note="congratulations!") saying I would get a more substantial package "in January". Maybe (OK, definitely) I am being a brat, or just really spoiled by NYU :)

edit to vent further: this is the tls equivalent of complaining to a bunch of starving refugees that the paprika and garlic in the third course of your four-course meal was a bit off-putting... :)

That's not the admitted students mailing. I think they just send that to hold you over.

My real packet came last Friday and it's a huge portfolio full of stuff.

haha like I said I am being a brat. Sorry. At least for the people waiting to hear back, you can rest assured that you are not missing out on some amazing package in the mail. In fact on a positive note I am just glad that Penn called. I was not sure which schools would call vs. just sending something in the mail. The calling is a lot more personal and prevents the whole mailbox-watching saga that begins once one person on TLS gets a letter. At least the phone-watching saga is not a one-shot-a-day (or less depending on your postmans work ethic) deal like the mail.

Nelson-thanks...It did not work, I am not held over :)

word...

Dear Penn - can I call you Penn? - okay cool... I just want to be straight with you.. I'm into you. Not just like "oh, I'd love to see how cool Penn's admissions packet is," but like, "I want to take criminal law with Paul Robinson and business classes at freaking Wharton, and I'm ready to commit." Yeah, I said it - I'm ready to commit. You can call me, email me, Skype me, or send me some raggedy-ass looking envelope, the only thing that matters to me is that I get to be a part of what you are doing there in Philly.

Sincerely,
Cog

I'm already into a law school I love, that looks amazing and I'm looking forward to, but, I'd withdraw from there and go to Penn if I got into Penn.
