Same, but I assume they would just email you asking to call them

This seems impossible. Wasn't that a required field? You probably forgot you did. In other news, since I first went under review (as an ED) my status has not updated. I heard people who went ED have had 2 'under review' status updates and this worries me getting so incredibly close to decision time.

It actually wasnt a required field which really doesnt make sense if they plan on contacting you exclusively by phone. I blame the LSAC and their app more than the schools

Since I went UR on 11/22 my status hasn't updated (I'm ED). In fact, it hasn't updated for any of my 11 schools for about 8 or 9 days or in some cases even two weeks. I don't like it...

+1. Finally at long last. RD applicants shouldn't expect to hear back until January, right?

LSN from previous cycles suggests the week before Christmas for the first round of RD acceptances. ED should hear back next week probably.

To anyone who may know... Have any ED candidates from previous cycles been offered scholly from Penn? I understand that ED eliminates the possibility to compare different schools offerings of aid, but does it generally mean you will not be offered any money as well?

Ouch that's not looking too good lol only one person, but I'm wondering if maybe some of the others just didn't report, since at that time they had no reason to update the profile?
