Whoever started reviewing mine must have had a good laugh and passed it on to one of his reviewer buddies to break the monotony, hence the 11/5 update.

Just went "Under Committee Review" today! I was previously just "File Complete". Is there a difference between "Under Review" and "Under Committee Review?"

Can we all just ease my neuroticism and agree that the date changes mean nothing on any status tracker? Please?

They don't mean anything.

I'm going to assume so... I'm not expecting a decision until December.

For ED candidates, did you write the supplemental essays? I've always assumed they were to show a serious interest in Penn, but ED takes care of that.

Ultimately, my diversity statement is weak and I have no idea where I'll be in 5 years, but am applying ED. Should I submit additional essays or just roll with it? Penn is (obviously) my number 1 choice and my stats are 171/3.57. Do I need the additional essays to be considered with my lower gpa?

Don't they require at least one?

Also, still not under review. :( Submitted 10/22, went complete 10/23.

Edit:
apparently they just wanted to know what I was doing now, since when I submitted I was unemployed. I'm working as a receptionist, ugh, how mundane, now I'm sure they won't accept me....

That was stupid. It clearly said on the app that you should not submit more than three.


Sigh. :roll:

could've been worse... at least your not sitting on Waikiki beach smoking a cigar and sipping a mohito.

actually, upon reflection, that almost sounds better than receptionist.
