For those curious, I updated twice, first in late October and the most recent was on 11/21. This was actually a reach, below 25th LSAT, but a 4.11 GPA and very strong softs/essays.

Congratulations! Will you still be hanging out on TLS? I guess your cycle is over.

Now withdraw from all your other schools :wink:


I'll still hang out here with you guys :wink: The panic of finding a job, getting an apartment, etc. are still lurking in my head lol I'm sure Penn has already sent out the withdraw notice to all my other schools (I'm sorry Cornell lol).

So awesome! Congrats!

Unless Penn is different from other schools, you send withdrawal notices to your other schools.

ETA: Also, congrats guys!

Congrats! Does Penn send out decisions in the order of complete dates? When did you go complete?

I went complete on 9/26, was first UR on 10/20, and then updated to 11/21. I don't know if they send out decisions in order of complete dates, but it would make sense if the first wave of acceptances is made up of people who have been complete for a while.

Congratulations!!! So exciting :)

I am from the area too, do they take that into consideration? Or is it just a fun fact? (I'm RD, so I won't hear a decision for a bit, just curious)

I don't think it makes a difference. I think for undergrad they have a "soft" quota for people actually from the city, so it makes it a bit easier to get in that way, but otherwise I don't think they care.

They definitely like getting Philly public school kids for undergrad and it's a big boost for an undergrad app. I doubt that is going to matter for the law school, but I can hope.
