nothing since then...
Wrote one of the optional essays, but not the "Why Penn." I made it through the first round of waitlists, but it seems like my app is just floating in the ether somewhere. 3.5x, LSAT>175. Anyone else stuck on a really early UCR1?

I'd do a little background research so you have some good answers planned. I am sure this is a good thing! When did you submit?

First off it is my opinion that if you are having a phone interview, the acceptance is your's to loose. As for the content of the interview, Dean Post just asked me why I feel that law school is the right choice at this point in my life, Why I want to leave the west to study in Philly, and what type of on campus organizations I hope to join if admitted. If I could go back and give myself advice I would tell myself to have a better understanding on which extra-curricular activities UPenn Law has that attracts me to the school (Journals, Clinics, ect.). I felt like this is the question I struggled with most.
Also, I spoke with another TLSer that had the interview and both of us felt that we BUTCHERED the interview. This is mainly due to the fact that Dean Post will not reveal anything, what so ever, about how the admissions council is feeling about your application. She will be very formal and straight to the point. Her reaction to answers answers were very neutral and initially other interviewees and I took this as a bad sign. In the end almost everyone who has interviewed has been admitted so don't be too critical of yourself. Again in my opinion they have pretty much made up their mind to admit you. They just want to make sure you have given UPenn some serious thought and that you are not totally incompetent.
I Hope that this helps to ease some of the tension those with phone interviews may be facing.

I did that and got in on the second day they gave out RD decisions, so you do have a shot. Did you give a reason for switching to RD?
