Should I be freaking out if I've been under committee review since 12/03?

Denied via status checker. I applied 10/1 and was complete on 10/5. Best of luck to everyone else!

Sorry to those that got dinged today. Bright side: the wait is over.

I have a mini heart attack every time I wait for my status checker to load. Still UCR 11/25

Actually, the dean in the Info Session said that the PS was the most important part of the application. Meant to make us feel all warm and fuzzy inside, no doubt.

Once in an info session my parents attended the Dean said she cares a lot about what high school you went to because that is where people learn how to write

I'd be interested in finding out if this is actually true, because my high school is ballin'. (but I was in remedial English)

This could be influential for me. I went to a public high school in the middle of nowhere...

Straight up rejected today via status checker. Nice note at the top of the status checker though. Stats on LSN.

That's really interesting and, if true, was to my advantage - I went to a top public school in the Philly area.

And on another note - I think these rejections/deferrals are evidence of Penn's clear desire to move up in the rankings.
