If I don't apply ED, have I totally screwed myself by waiting this long? Has there been any movement for RD applicants?
If you're numbers are accurate, and you don't have any super softs, I don't think you are competitive at Penn even with an ED. Maybe applying to the joint program helps, but I don't know. I hate to be a downer, but according to myLSN.info nobody with your numbers has gotten into Penn in a while. But best of luck.
My thoughts as well. I hadn't even considered applying to Penn until submitting my PhD app. Best case scenario: get accepted to the PhD program, wait listed at the law school. Then there would always be retaking the LSAT during my first two years in the PhD program.
