The green triangles on LSN are piling up all around my numbers : ( I'm not going to be able to concentrate on anything until I find out one way or another.

Yeah, it changed a little after they called me. Maybe a day. Now it says "Offer of admission".

Oh I mean like before you got the call, did your date change?

Like mine changed after a month to the date for last thursday, i'm wondering if that's a sign...

I was ED. I don't know if that would make a difference, but I was UR 11/11 and didn't get a date change at all until accept.

Found a couple egregious typos that I probably would have been stressing out about had I noticed them pre-decision. Moral of the story: Penn is apparently forgiving when it comes to typos, so if you've noticed any, fear not!


Thank you for posting this! I did notice I made one (really REALLY stupid) typo in the very last sentence of an optional essay for them, and I've been stressing over it for weeks. Now I guess I can calm down a little about it.

I'm in the VP hate club. Didn't apply to Michigan but I even wrote additional essays for Penn.

i only did one supplemental essay. i hope that was enough.

Quick Question--

If I want to submit an additional letter of recommendation to Penn--do I do it through LSAC, or should I advise my recommender to e-mail it straight to Penn admissions?

Still at 11/3/09 UR. Applied -> Complete -> UCR, and nothing since then.

I'm pretty sure Penn requires that LORs be sent through LSAC.

wow...so they've been making calls all day-ish, presumably. the time lag between people reporting it in this thread shows how few applicants are really on TLS.

congrats to the admits today :) hopefully more tomorrow...

According to my LSN, complete on 10-09, wrote on additional essay (not a Why Penn?, though). Good luck, everyone.

Shhh. I like to think that I was the first admit overall.

By the way, any scholarship information for any of the RD admits, or does that come later?

Just got a call from 215. Left my class, in which I sit three feet from the president of the university (a notable lawyer in his own right), to call back. Got Penn's admissions office, but a message about it being closed. Came back, sat down, and actually met eyes with the president...and then noticed I have a voicemail.

Bad form to get up again?
