I've been UR1 since 12/18, feels like I should've gone UR2 by now...anyone in the same boat?

I was UCR1 from 11/17 until I went UCR2 yesterday, so don't worry too much, I'm sure your UCR2 is on it's way!

It's Penn's policy to have every candidate reviewed twice so all it means is that they're closer to a decision on you.


So if the date was UCR2 yesterday, does that mean that a decision was made yesterday and just not released? Or does that phase take longer?

no. UCR2 I believe is the 2nd round of reviewers look at your file. then after they are done, you will have a final decision.

^believe this is correct

Exact same situation here, but I'm sure we'll be fine and get it soon.

I have yet to abandon hope. But I am bracing myself for a WL just in case.

If it makes you feel any better, I was UCR2 11/30 and still nothing... GPA between 25 and 50 percentiles, LSAT above 75th. Master's degree, significant work and public service experience, and wrote one of their optional essays but nada. I think I need to chalk this one up to a waitlist or ding at this point

From looking at the data, I don't think there's reason to be overly pessimistic. The vast majority of admits so far have been above both 75ths with very few exceptions and there haven't really been that many acceptances at that. I think there's still a lot of room left.

Also very curious to know if any UCR2 1/10 people have gotten a call. My guess is that 1/10 will get decisions before ED2 - maybe this week?

i feel like they wouldn’t do 3 waves in one week, and I think ED2 will get a wave before the next RD wave, but i’d love to be proven wrong

They also did 2 RD waves back to back. Maybe this year is different (plus they've been getting decisions out earlier than usual). This Friday would ROCK.

I feel like I’m not gonna be super unhappy either way when ED2 decisions roll out. If I get in - sweet! Awesome school. If not, I’m not stuck paying sticker and I can see how the rest of my cycle plays out.

[cut to May and I’ve been rejected everywhere]

Silly question, but does anyone know if after ED2 you can be straight up waitlisted or is there also a weird “held for RD “ limbo option?
