True, good plan. anyone?


Didn't write a Why Penn, though I wrote two of their other essays. No change since going "Under Committee Review" on 10/29. However I highly doubt I have YP numbers....so dunno how much this helps.

Should I write one of their other essays? Pick a work of literature or art? I already sent an additional LOR...

I'm thinking anyone who is risking YP but didn't care enough to write the 5-year essay won't be checking this thread as obsessively as something like, er, me.

If you want to show further interest this may be the best way.

FWIW I did 2 of the supplementals despite being ED. I didn't feel like fucking around with my top choice.

Define "bad" in relation to Penn's numbers. Are you a URM by any chance?


GPA is somewhere between 25th and median, LSAT is below 25th - I am a URM. Didn't write a Why Penn, but did 2 of the supplemental essays. I applied RD.

Only if it's about twilight. But seriously, is Penn really going to require an additional essay and then YP people anyway? How much more do I need to fellate them to avoid YP?

Before taking the LSAT, I calculated my probabilities of admission to all of the schools that use the LSAC predictor. When I scored several points higher than I had expected, I calculated again. All of the probabilities went up. Except one. Penn went down.

That said, I don't really understand why they YP when they require at least one extra essay. Surely that scares people who aren't all serious?


I'd be happy to take a few of those pesky YP-inducing LSAT points off your hands :mrgreen:

I get in, you get less risk of YP... win-win!


Then he'd lose his Harvard admit.


With a 178 and his killer-insane GPA, I think he could afford to lose the 2 or so points I'd need to be even a little competitive at Penn, without losing his Harvard admit. Oh, what the hell, maybe even THREE points!

...let's keep talking about a.) him, and b.) trading points as if they were actually possible. I'm okay with overt self-delusion.

I wrote a why Penn too. I wonder if there is anything else to be done. I feel like calling them and saying that they are my first choice would make me seem like a stalker.


If you do get WLed a LOCI expressing that sentiment should get you right in. The biggest concern is, if someone gets off the WL, is there any chance at money?

I don't know. Ugh. I wish they didn't start requiring one additional essay. Then my choice to write a why penn would have been more meaningful.

Challenge them to a game in Flip-Flip-Flipadelphia and if you win, they accept you with full ride.

Write an additional essay about how you're going to sue the fuck out of McNabb and Andy Reid for emotional damages.
