I have the Further Review notice under mailings, but it still says Under Committee Review, not waitlist...what should I make of this?

Yeah I think at the end of the day this had more to do with you all having such great stats; think they might have gotten the feeling that you'd easily get into and consequently choose a T6 over them. They can make only 900 or so offers, so they have to make excellent people play this WL game to determine who is serious.

That said you guys are all in such great shape this cycle. Wishing you all the absolute best

Hey I have similar stats -- do you mind sharing when you went complete and UR??


I think complete was early November, and my last status tracker update was 1/6 - hope it helps!

! Congrats! If you don't mind me asking, what were your dates? You seem to be one of the few of today's acceptances whose GPA isn't > 75th.


Wow, I guess I'm pretty lucky then. Submitted 11/9ish, complete 11/12, under review dates of 12/5 and 11/1. I wrote a nice Penn-specific essay responding to one of the prompts (I don't remember which one, sorry) which probably helps.

Just received the WL email. So do I basically submit a LOCI as a response to this email?

Just got an email asking for me to send my Fall semester grades...is this a good sign? Should I send a letter of interest as well? Any insights would be appreciated

Congrats! I think we have similar stats and hope to follow your trend soon!


Nice, good luck brother. One thing that might help (although I know it gets downplayed on this site, perhaps for good reason? I don't know how these things work) is the way my GPA splits; I was under 2.8 freshman year and every other semester has been much better.

submit the new transcript to LSAC
after it's processed
email a LOCI and confirm they receive the new grades
