Yeah, probably won't start until Wednesday, sadly. Oh well. I can deal with it.

Sorry if this has been asked before, but does Penn email you when you go complete or does it just update on the checker? Thanks :)

Hopefully. I think it's more likely to be Wednesday, just since based on the last few years it seems they like to give most of the ED decisions Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. But based on the heavy RD movement we've seen in the past ~48 hours it's a possibility they could start tomorrow.

Yup! Definitely true. Let's hope we can start posting in the Penn Law Class of 2015 thread tomorrow!

They were in the lobby taking photos of the post admission committee members today, I assume for this year's version of the admitted student website. So it's going to be soon, and I hope to go post welcomes in the class of 2015 threads tomorrow too :)

BTW our classes end on Wed. so acceptances will definitely come by Thurs. the latest I would think.

Well if they're giving decisions today we'll probably know in the next hour or so. I'm still thinking it'll be tomorrow, but we'll see.

Haha yeah, same sadly. I don't think they'll start now since it's already 1. But at least we can be reasonably sure it'll be tomorrow!

November was the worst for me as far as waiting. Ever since Dec. 1 hit, the whole process seems to be speeding up. Law schools decided to move my application through the process. Got Georgetown last Thursday and Vanderbilt mailed a decision to me yesterday. Now all of a sudden, I don't feel like waiting is so bad, but that dead silence throughout November was rough.

I haven't got an acceptance yet and my most recent updates are 11/22. Only under review at two schools. I submitted late October, but was waiting on an LOR to go complete, which didn't happen until mid November, so effectively my late Oct submission was pointless.

It's not very fun waiting on the first acceptance. If Penn is the next day or two, I don't think I'll ever know where else I got in. I'm okay with that, as long as I get in! See you guys tomorrow for some good news.

November wasn't bad for me just because I realized that I probably won't be hearing back from anywhere until late December or January anyway (besides Penn), but the last 2 weeks since I got back to school from Thanksgiving break have been horrible in terms of the wait, bleh.

I submitted 10/28 I think, went complete 11/9 then UR 11/10 and 11/17. Probably just a coincidence that I went UR the day after I went complete, but I keep telling myself that Penn was holding the 11/10 batch until I went complete because they really want to accept me. :lol: I've gotten in at Georgetown and GW so far, which makes waiting a lot easier, though.

It's been the opposite for me -- I got into UCLA and Michigan pre-Thanksgiving, and was expecting to see a lot of other decisions (whether accepted, held, or even denied) this month. So far, though... nothing! It's strange that I got so much movement early on my cycle and there is nothing but silence post-Thanksgiving. I submitted all my apps in the first week of October, as well :-/
