It's been 11 weeks since I first went under review, and something like 18 or 19 since my application went complete. I know LOCIs are usually for people who have been WLed, but might it be appropriate now? It just seems like an abnormally long time to be UR.


I wrote a LOCI a few months after sending my app and it might have been what got me a hold instead of a WL (unless they're the same thing?). I plan to write an additional essay to get off the hold.


Hold is apparently different from the WL. But only Penn knows what that means.


It means they haven't rendered a decision whereas a WL means they'll be getting back to it later, usually to work with medians and people withdrawing. I don't think they're substantially different in practice for most people, though.

We have the exact same complete -> UR timing and similar stats. I hope this leads to good news for both of us as I would LOVE to go to Penn.

UR2

Was previously UR1 on 1/17, I believe?

Consensus is that it's two updates and then a decision?

I've been UCR2 since 1/15... really hoping for some word tomorrow, expecting a ding though.

I can understand the lack of optimism, but you shouldn't fear the worst. Two other 3.6/170's who have been accepted at Penn already:

App acknowledge email 1/09, Complete 1/23, UR1 around 1/27 or so, UR2 yesterday. Hope I get a decision either way (or any of the 3) in the next week or two...but I'm pretty sure I'll be waiting a while.

Does Penn usually make decisions on a certain day of the week?

Good luck today to everyone waiting, hopefully the blizzard doesn't keep them from making calls!

They have released decisions on several Fridays in the past month, so Friday is always a good bet.

Give me a call, Penn, come on!

Am I expecting it too soon if I went under UR2 on 2/5? Lol.

Actually, I guess I just went UR1 yesterday since the header tab changed on my status checker. Could have sworn I was UR but maybe I was just complete.
