I’m still at complete as of 11/10. Seems like I just missed the cutoff with the UR wave. Anyone complete later than that UR?

I'm UR2. Almost didn't check today but I saw the Reddit post as well. Sooo what does this mean? As in, should I prepare to be disappointed next week? The week after? I'm thinking ED applicants are UR2, everyone else is UR1.

Wondering when ED people can expect decisions. Looks like 12/13 from last year's thread but I really want it to be earlier.

Eh, Im ED and still UR1 so maybe they didn't get through all the ED applications today lol. And looking from last years thread, it was about 2nd week of December lol. Hoping for an early Christmas miracle.

Same. I can't even say how much I'd like Penn to be my first acceptance even if I snuck in via ED. And yeah it looks like on last year's thread not all ED people went UR2 at the same time. It doesn't mean anything, but I don't like how the guy with the exact same dates as me got waitlisted.

If I get an interview offer, is this, like, a good sign, or pretty standard process for admitted and denied, alike?

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but from reading last years thread I am pretty sure they interview all splitter ED applicants or people they aren't 100% sure about.

This makes me super nervous. Got an interview request this morning and I’m 166/3.96.

Not 100% sure but I am gonna say that it is usually just for ED applicants. But the good thing is that you get a chance to really nail the interview and cement your admission.

I think I just saw your post on Reddit. I didn't get an interview request and I'm 164/3.93. So if anything they're leaning yes on you and definitely no on me.

The interview's 20 minutes. It'll be over before it starts.

Could someone please be honest with me and tell me if I should be concerned that I didn't get an interview request. I'm 164/3.93/non-URM/K-JD/ED. I was completely calm about it until someone said that it's for people they aren't 100% sure about. And well, unless they're 100% sure I'm dinged, I should probably have gotten one, right?

There is a distinct possibility that ppl online, especially OLs, could be wrong. Also a possibility that they don't interview every single person who they aren't sure about.
