That makes me wonder if any RD applicants have gone under review.

I'm RD and "Under Committee Review," if that's what you're referring to.

One from professor, two from employers. Only out of UG 1 year, but I've gathered that professors suck at this stuff (Also, as a fine art major all my relationships were with wacky artist-types who could only comment on my proficiency with reeling film in the dark and paper mache)

So okay, full disclosure, I did not technically follow directions either (I got 2 profs, but one of them I just worked for in a management capacity, albeit in an academic setting), BUT I feel like/am hoping this may not be as big of a deal as we think. Obviously we all have strong numbers and have demonstrated our ability to perform well academically. I am hoping that my decision to give Penn a full picture of the people I've worked closely with both during UG and after UG will pay off as I attempted to better demonstrate my full range of skills inside and outside the classroom.

Maybe this is just me justifying my personal decision and maybe I'm totally screwed b/c I didn't follow the instructions to the letter (fair enough), but I'm hoping that what Penn mostly cares about is getting to know us through the people that know us best whether they are profs or employers.

I was complete 9/30 and just went under committee review today. I imagine that the rest of the September/early October submitters will go under review over the next several days.

Also UR today. Complete 9/25.

Funny, it is almost like they saw us all complaning ITT last night.

ETA: All of my applications are officially as far as they can go without getting a decision with the exception of a possible interview from Chicago. Making a personal spreadsheet to record every step of the application process was a good idea.

Doesn't it just bring such a sense of peace and order to the whole process? I mean, as much as it can.

Mine's color-coded. Orange means the only thing left is a decision so I'm jealous that Specs has more orange cells than I do.

Mine is color-coded too! I just love when I can change the cells to orange and then hopefully to green!

So glad other people are doing this lol. Each cell on mine starts red and turns green when I type something into it.

Wow, it looks like there are lots of us doing this. One thing is for sure though, you guys are way more advanced than I am. Mine is color-coded but not automatically. Looks like i need to educate myself on Excel a little more. :)
