I'm starting to think that the reason they take so long for some is because they have a more personalized rejection process where they actually explain in a letter why they didn't admit the applicant. That has to take them awhile to compose thousands of personalized rejections? Sitting at 1/17 1st UCR w/ a 12/2 complete. Yikes!

Whoa, I just logged in for the umpteenth time today and after more than a month of seeing 1/27/2012 as my 1st UCR, it finally reads 02/29/2012. Hopefully the leap year update bodes well...

Sorry if this has been asked, but how is the WL at Penn? Are we talking a soft rejection, or do they actually go to the WL?

Thanks. This is kinda a bummer, Penn is definitely one of my top schools. I'm holding out for NYU at this point, and really really hoping that this WL isn't going to foreshadow my future at NYU

I'm waiting to hear back from NYU too. What're your numbers?

To the WLers...be strong! Penn takes a decent number of waitlisters every year! I personally am sitting on two wait lists...

Now, a question: what were your UCR dates? I went complete 1/3 and had my first 1st UCR on 2/17, but I've seen that some 2/17ers updated today...trying to figure it out. Thanks in advance.

From what I've seen here, it's 2 UCRs ---> decision. And everyone gets 2 UCRs, as each app is evaluated by two admissions officers.
