My condolences guys. Looks like Penn still got a lot of hate for splitters. They didn't seem to use their WL much last year, but maybe it'll be different this cycle with the further decline in apps.

With your numbers, there's only one conclusion. They think you're leading them on. Did you write a Why Penn?

Send in a LOCI showing them how bad you want it.
Profit.


I did not. I emailed them back asking for an on campus interview. I am a Philadelphia resident. If this is not granted, I will submit the Why Penn. Thanks!

Any difference between getting a WL via status checker and email?

Just for clarification- these are literally "waitlist" emails and not holds, correct? Thanks!

Edit: Nevermind. I just read it was a waitlist by status checker.

Hey all,

I've been seeing a lot of questions about "hold" status and thought I'd share this video that clarified a lot for me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8QMcD1oq3Dg

Held today. Submitted 11/05.
