It means you'll probably get a decision soon; I'd guess tomorrow. What was your first UR date if you don't mind me asking?

Ooh, exciting. I think my first UR was 1/12. Went complete 11/14.

HELP I'm actually freaking out because I went into first committee review on 1/23 and today I went under review on 1/26. Does that mean a waitlist decision is likely? I feel like everyone who has moved quickly through has been either waitlisted or rejected. Seriously freaking out lol HELP Penn is my top choice

With your numbers, I'm not sure I'd worry about it too much.

My URs were 5 days apart with a weekend in there and I got in. I think you'll be fine. Your numbers are perfect for Penn. Good luck!

Take a breath. Calm down. Things are going to be okay.

You'll get a decision when you get a decision. Freaking out is not going to make anything any more in your control.

Breathe and be ok.

If the stats in your profile are right, i don't think you should worry.

Had to salvage the penn thread from page 2.... We're too good for that right?

Anyway, hoping for good news for lots of us today!!

I had my first UCR on 1/12 and nothing since. Did anyone who heard back last Friday (good or bad) have only one update morning of the decisions? Or am I stuck waiting at least one more week?

Think you're probably waiting at least another week.. I'm in the same boat, and i have yet to hear of anyone getting a decision without first getting a second UCR.

If you are non-URM, have a 169 LSAT, and want admission to UPenn, do you basically need either

A. GPA > 75%
B. Apply ED

?

GPA >3.8 and you're almost definitely in ED, probably need >3.9 for RD. Penn's really selective with GPA's for people below their LSAT median (170).

Same here. And I'm also curious as to the turnaround.

Ehh... actually, I just looked on LSN and it seems like very few people who submitted in November have heard anything yet...

UCR as of today. Went complete 12/7. This is a pretty big reach for me.

I don't know if any of us are going to be able to offer you much more than this: http://penn.lawschoolnumbers.com/stats/ ... Cycle=1112

All I can try to add is that I think you've got to give adcomms something to work with. If you are sub-median LSAT, then >75th GPA certainly helps to do that. Similarly for certain exceptional soft factors or URM status. If I were an adcomm member, I would only take hits in one area for an applicant if they were compensated for in other areas.
