Minimum wage for a rookie is $310K; however, you have to be signed to a 53 man roster to get this, which I was not.


Right, I was referring to the players who "make the team" in the most traditional sense.

I am just teasing a bit peyso. If you are actually doing what you say you are doing, I find it quite impressive, though I do understand why you wouldn't want it to be a permanent thing.



I figured that you were teasing. I just had to stress the fact that I really love walking. Or at least having the ability to do it well :D

I am done playing. I stopped in Oct of 2008 and got a real job. I then tried out again during the summer of 2009. I never received a game jersey but I do have a helmet and my mom framed my contract lol

Anyone else terrified of Jan 4th? My application went under review about a week before (and it seems a bunch of others did too) and I'm just afraid of the floodgates opening after the break.

I don't know whether you could say "it's a sign." People who applied/went complete after me have been both accepted and rejected, but plenty others from before me have not received decisions.

Any consensus on the significance of date changes? 'Under Committee Review' originally 12/3 --> now 1/4

Would it be trite to send an LSAT addendum to Penn after the last LSAT score? When I took it, it was the 3rd day in a row that I had a fever and I knew I sucked but I didn't cancel because I knew it was the last chance to take it for this cycle.

There were a few of us who went 12/3 -> 12/10 who haven't had any changes since/heard back yet either. What that means, I don't know...

I was UR 12/1 then 12/15 with no other changes. I think the date changes when your app gets transferred to a new adcomm member for review. I don't think there is much significance.

I just got a call from a 215 area code number (Philly).... and it was a wrong number. :|

Still under committee review from 11/20. Went complete 10/26. 171 (retake from 161) and 3.75, white male, graduated June 09. Really, really, hoping to get in at Penn. I love the school.

Penn, I've been under review for nearly 2 months. Make a decision already.
