Submitted over 2 months ago, pretty extreme splitter. Feel like not getting WLd was about as well as today could have gone.

Anyone who got the call yesterday and status check change still not get the acceptance email? I want to sign in to the admitted students website but haven't gotten my info yet. Should I send an email asking admissions about it?

I haven't gotten anything else either. Tried requesting my username from the admitted students website and it didn't work.

So I decided to analyze Penn's applicant pool on LSN to pass the time while I'm waiting for a decision. I know LSN isn't exactly representative of the total applicant pool but it at least gives us some idea of what they're doing.

For regular decision applicants:
At or above median LSAT and GPA - 23 accepted, 0 rejected, 2 waitlisted (likely YP, both URMs)
At or above median LSAT, 25th-50th GPA - 15 accepted, 2 rejected, 13 waitlisted (looks like both rejected people were international)
At or above median LSAT, <25th GPA - 8 accepted, 4 rejected, 23 waitlisted
25th-50th LSAT, at or above median GPA - 11 accepted, 0 rejected, 6 waitlisted
25th-50th LSAT, 25th-50th GPA - 3 accepted, 20 rejected, 14 waitlisted (2 of the 3 accepted were URMs, the other had just under median for both LSAT and GPA)
25th-50th LSAT, <25th GPA - 0 accepted, 4 rejected, 0 waitlisted
<25th LSAT, at or above median GPA - 1 accepted, 0 rejected, 4 waitlisted
<25th LSAT, 25th-50th GPA - 0 accepted, 5 rejected, 4 waitlisted
<25th LSAT, <25th GPA - 1 accepted, 2 rejected, 1 waitlisted (accepted was a URM)

Current Regular Decision totals - 62 accepted, 37 rejected, 67 waitlisted

Early Decision totals - 7 accepted, 4 rejected, 1 waitlisted
Of the 7 accepted, 4 had at or above median LSATs, the other 3 had at or above median GPAs
Of the 4 rejected, 3 were below both medians, the other was a KJD with a 75th LSAT and <25th GPA

Remaining applicant pool (231 pending)
At or above both medians - 23 (9.96%)
At or above LSAT median, 25th-50th GPA - 77 (33.33%)
At or above LSAT median, <25th GPA - 34 (14.72%)
At or above GPA median, 25th-50th LSAT - 19 (8.23%)
At or above GPA median, <25th LSAT - 6 (2.60%)
25th-50th LSAT and GPA - 39 (16.88%)
25th-50th LSAT, <25th GPA - 12 (5.19%)
25th-50th GPA, <25th LSAT - 13 (5.63%)
<25th LSAT and GPA - 8 (3.46%)

Obviously there are going to be some problems with the data, people are more likely to report acceptances, people with higher stats are more likely to make a profile, etc., but at least it gives us something to look at.

Honestly as LSAT>75th and GPA<25th I'm surprised I haven't been WL yet. It is giving me hope and I really need UPenn to come through :(

WHY THE SILENCE TODAY, PENN!?

Does anyone think we'll get another wave this week?

Does Penn have its own application for financial aid beyond the FAFSA and CSS? I can't find it online.
