Congrats!

/thanks for ruining my plan to just kick back and not think about it.


Haha, yep. As I alternate between staring longingly at Franklin field from my cubicle and glancing at my phone.

Also, this is great news! Your earlier 'calm down about UCR updates, people' post was totally valid, haha. Now I'll be glancing at my phone every few seconds instead of just refreshing my status checker / hoping for a UCR2 update.

Were you without a 2nd UCR as well?

Also -- for people getting in, who wrote optional essays, and who didn't? I am curious...

Still sitting at 11/20 myself, no update.

Thanks all! I wrote a one-page optional essay that combined the diversity and Penn's values questions. I couldn't figure out if we could write separate essays or if we could only write one essay that covered multiple topics, so I went with the one essay to be safe.

Has anyone who was admitted ED received the decision letter in the mail yet? I've received the email but nothing via snail mail. Thanks.

Me too :(. Actually, i didn't get an email, it just says so in my status checker (status still says UCR with today's date). Part of it says "The Admissions Committee has completed its preliminary review of your application and has decided to hold your file for further review." Is this normal?

Congrats to new admits!

Congrats to everyone accepted today! If you have ANY questions about Penn, feel free to PM me or post in the Ask a Law Student forum or whatever. It'll be 100x more exciting for me to answer questions than to study civ pro...
