Sort of weird they are dinging so many people with high stats early on...

to be fair, I didn't have an excellent chance to begin with... but I was hoping for at least a waitlist.

Dinged with your stats??? No way. I have similar stats, so that's not a good sign.

WTF I have similar stats to you too :/ Does UPenn just really value the GPA over the LSAT? If it makes you feel better, I know people who got rejected from UPenn who got into NYU & UChicago.

YP is very real at Penn. >170 LSAT with a good GPA is solidly t6 territory.

Wouldn't that usually result in a waitlist and not a rejection?

I got waitlisted.

This is very surprising, given the dings that have been here.

I have no explanation.

Sorry to hear as well. It'll be okay & if they're your number one, get a solid LOCI or Why Penn essay over to them! It could help.


No no, I wasn't clear; people with much better numbers than I have got dinged. I'm pleasantly surprised.
