Got the call just after noon today! So excited!!!
164 / 3.94 / non-URM.....really believed the sub-25th LSAT would be disqualifying...
Starting to think I'm going to be the only 170 or higher ED on LSN not to get accepted ED.
I really thought you'd be in based on previous years, that sucks man. Don't worry though, maybe I'll get to join you as a 170+ who doesn't get in via ED.

The theory is that when you first go UR it means your file has been accessed by someone in admissions, and when the date changes it means a 2nd person has accessed it (since Penn has 2 people read every application), though there's at least 1 person who's gotten in without their date updating (I believe), so who knows. But generally the date change just means your app is moving along through the process, nothing necessarily good or bad.
Edit: And obviously LSN doesn't make up the whole population, but it's interesting that 11 people on there got decisions today while only 6 didn't (and who knows, maybe the 5 that aren't me just didn't update it yet haha). I feel like they musta just forgotten about me or something
Edit 2: And just out of boredom (and trying to figure out why I'm one of the very few who didn't seem to hear anything today haha), I know I had the 11/10 and 11/17 UR dates, same as Cornelius (who was held) and 4julye (who got in). So based on this extremely small sample... the dates mean nothing
Though we're all 170+ LSAT's, so maybe they put splitters in one batch and reverse splitters in another. Or something.
