Nope; the last field on the form was for LSAC number so I think maybe they just used the email from a previous year's WL Informational Meeting Form.


yah that's what i thought. I acted so quickly so I couldn't take it all in. I need to stop rushing everything when it comes to penn lol

Is the 16th the earliest date to schedule a meeting for or are all the earlier days just taken? And is this the same "informational meeting" that the website says that waitlisted applicants can request?

Thanks! And are these meetings mandatory for acceptance? Earliest I can schedule for is the 23rd, scared that's too late


I don't think so

For anyone that sent in a LOCI, did you simply send it in the form of an email? Or did you attach it as a PDF?

So if I send it as a PDF do I write a letter heading on top (like the school's address) or do I just start it by addressing admissions

I didn't use a letter heading, just addressed it to admissions.

Wow, that's pretty weird, but I'd say that's really good news. That means they're taking a look at your app, so don't really see how that can be a bad thing!

Anyone else get a date change? Or anybody who already got a feeler call get a date change? If uncomfortable posting here please PM

Mine is still at 3/29, the day they placed me on the WL. It probably means they are not looking at my app.

Has anybody received a feeler call WITHOUT having submitted a LOCI beforehand? Or were all of the call recipients people who had sent in a LOCI already?

I've been kind of MIA the past few days. Just caught up reading.

For anyone still possibly hitting up a LOCI, I did the following: super brief email with a personal update, reiterating interest, and introducing the attachment which was a 2-page statement of continued interest focused on my visit and some other stuff.

Status date is still from initial WL decision.

Anyone know the deal on these informational interviews or have gone to one in the past? I know it says they are purely informational, but I suppose one still can't help but wonder if there isn't a checkbox: [ ] came to informational interview
