I’m happy to serve as a resource for anxious applicants. We also just got our grades back, so I can speak a bit on that as well.

Good luck everyone!

*I should add, I was an EDII applicant who had an interview and was waitlisted thereafter. That happened to five of us on here. Three of us are now at Penn! So, no giving up, people!


I'm also an EDII applicant! Would you mind sharing if there is any hope at all of getting any aid?

I was admitted relatively late in the application season off of the waitlist and received aid!

I had a 75th GPA and below 25th LSAT. If you're waitlisted it is not the end of the process at all. I do think you should prepare for a tough road ahead if you are waitlisted (as far as developing patience). Can talk more over DM.

I don’t think not getting an interview is something to really stress about at all. Penn very rarely does interviews. Spoke to people on previous admission committee and they said the same thing very very rare. Also 2 people I’ve spoken to this cycle who received interview requests switched to ED2 after submitting RD and before the ED2 deadline. So the basis of the interview was essentially are you sure you really want to go here and why?

Admitted 1/10, just got the mailing, no scholarship info. Just two viewbooks and a PennLaw folder. I have to say they didn't come up with the swag like duke did...

EDIT btw i'm in the midwest for reference

hmm I'm in NY and still nothing. Sounds like it's nothing special anyway!

What time is typical to expect a tweet or announcement if they were to release EDII decisions today?

Getting a little late so I’m guessing we’ll find out tomorrow. Can someone please sedate me until then?

I should add that it was precisely this week last year, on Friday, that I found out. My interview had been on Tuesday. So, my guess is that there will be decisions tomorrow. That said, I knew it was coming because Penn Law Admissions had tweeted about it. Are they not doing that this year?
