Come on CQ, I think you've still got some more magic in store this cycle...

Based on your numbers, I definitely feel a bit better about my 1/12 to 1/30 update.

Don't count yourself out. With the reduced number of LSAT takers they need your LSAT score.

Being serious... do you really thing Penn bundles candidates? My arm chair reading of the situation seems more random.... I did a little research on LSN and only about 2 in 10 were accepted who had decision dates 2/4 - 2/6 ( the basic timeframe I expect we'll be in)... I'm nervous. This is my first choice. I just want to be convinced that I'm not being a debbie downer.

FWIW, i don't think you can deduce anything from absolute dates, so to speak. I think the timing of things is pretty different than past years (fewer acceptances than at this time last year). So that doesn't do much to argue that you're in, but i definitely don't think you should feel like you're out based on the timing.

Updated to 1/31 sometime this afternoon. Ugh, I hope this is good news. I haven't heard anything since late December, I am going crazy.

They have accepted people with my numbers/lower, though, so here's hoping.

Pretty much this, but I do think they partially group candidates. Just based on trends that I've seen, a quick difference, e.g. 5 days, between UR dates typically signifies either an auto-admit or an auto-reject. As the difference in dates increases, the ultimate decision becomes unpredictable because, historically, the decisions included held, rejected, waitlisted, and accepted.

ETA: Don't read too much into it. You still have a good shot.
