I got a hold email on 1/18, and I believe one other person mentioned they did as well ITT.

Thanks for replying. Have you looked through last years hold thread? Very few people on it, though most seemed to eventually get in late feb/early march. I promptly submitted an LOCI and a 5th LOR.

Just took a look... Wow, I hope we don't have to wait til the end of March to hear anything.

I didn't submit any optional essays with my app, so I sent a Why Penn last week.
Edit: Did you get any confirmation that your LOCI was received? I heard nothing.

Is there a specific day of the week Penn releases results? Is it Friday?
Tomorrow I'll hit the 12 weeks and I got an update today... Seems like a rejection or waitlist is coming :shock:

They tend to release most decisions on Fridays, but they've also released some decisions on Wednesdays and perhaps some other days. I do think we have a good chance of seeing a decision either this Wednesday or this Friday. Let's hope good news for the both of us!

Went complete 10/19. Stuck UR 12/12. WTF Penn. Accepted, Rejected, WL, held...give me something!

Edited to add that this puts me well over the stated "12 weeks to render a decision." Uncool.

Yikes. Make that five, except I thought I had something of a shot (173/3.42). I suppose it's silly to conclude based on this that I don't. But still.

Pretty sure the day you go under review first is based on date, not numbers. They've gone pretty chronologically. The other URs seem to indicate to some extent when you might get a decision, but not necessarily what the decision will be. Don't lose hope because you're in a "reach" group!
