Not much hope but would be ecstatic if accepted.

Checking in. Any chance we see some money off the waitlist?

From the Penn Applicants thread:

LRGhost wrote:I'm WL and visited last week. Was told they will be sending out calls for interviews during the first week or two of May, if that helps anyone.


Hopefully this will lead to some movement in this thread...

FYI, once you matriculate to another school (i.e. you're a summer starter), you are required to remove yourself from the Penn waitlist. I did not know this. Did you guys know this?

I say a coordinated effort to dissuade people from going to PENN on the choosing a law school forum...


...just kidding.

Penn is my only waitlist. Wishing I didn't wait until late Feb to apply.

Matriculate as in starting class or just being enrolled?
Ie: Does seat/tuition deposits count? I'm guessing not since the tuition itself hasn't been paid yet...

No idea. The email just said matriculate. I imagine seat deposits do not count -- not sure about tuition.

Hey Penn waitlisters! Anyone else struggling with the "2 page essay of your choice" business? Awfully open ended! I'm not sure how to approach it. Glorified LOCI? 2 page pontification on the amazingness that is Captain Leela? Rumination on eminent domain? Some random topic of interest?

I'm a bit stumped, unfortunately. Thoughts would be greatly appreciated as this mid-May timeframe approaches...

Edit: The character, Captain Leela; applicant/TLSer Captain Leela is not 2 pages worth of interesting and seriously not that obnoxious (yeep :oops: )

I already sent in a 2-page LOCI/Why Penn after I was held, so for the waitlist I sent them a one-page-ish email about my summer plans and about why I'm awesome even though I'm below their medians.

I've been dreading this as well. I'm planning on looking over the optional essays they had for the initial application and writing on one of those topics, but I didn't choose those topics from the beginning because I couldn't come up with a strong enough topic/idea so a lot of brainstorming and creative thinking is going to be needed.

Which email? I'm looking at the original WL email and it doesn't say anything about that. Did you receive an email after the original WL email (or anybody else for that matter)?

Edit: i did get an email confirmation for staying on the WL but no new info

Did you get a call today? Looks like admissions is already on the move.

I myself have not received a call.

yeah i got a call today asking about whether i was still interested, where i was currently deposited, etc. she said they are still getting deposits trickling in so they don't know for sure if/how many seat will be open, but they assume that this year, like others, they will be admitting some people off the WL and will be reviewing people next week. she told me to think about it/talk with family and call back on monday to let her know if i was still interested (even though i said like 5 times i was). not sure how many people they're doing that for. trying not to get my hopes up

That's a good sign imo. If you don't mind, can you share with us any news they had ? Thanks

Edit: just saw your post. Thanks

Separate email. The original emails say nothing about it.

Doesn't seem like it. Based on last year and the year before, next week is probably earliest

Does anyone know Penn's policy towards deferring after being accepted off the waitlist? I couldn't find anything about it their website.

i couldn't find anything either, but pretty much every school's policy is that you can't defer if you're accepted off the WL. i would assume penn has the same policy
