What did they want?


to know what i was doing currently. im a receptionist...i bet they were WAAYYYY impressed. :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.

And under committee review, 11/11. Now if only Virginia and Chicago would follow suit.

Maybe Chicago has, I haven't gotten to that checker yet.

Well, looks like we won't hear back until Christmas at the earliest. Time to go back to glaring at my Michigan status checker.

I'm not really glaring, Michigan. I love you. Let me in.

Also under review as of today.

Does Penn issue decisions ON the 31st for ED? Also, do they e-mail or snail mail only?

Mine too! That's the first movement I've seen on ANY of my status checkers, and I applied to all the schools in September!

Here's hoping the process speeds up a bit! I've been going crazy and I just applied in October. I can't imagine waiting since September...

Hey guys. I've enjoyed lurking, and I'm now emerging from my anonymity.

Just to be clear, an LSAT addendum would suffice as an additional essay? I wrote a two-paragraph LSAT Addendum (2 deaths in the family in May); is that long enough?

Also, what do you think of the idea of just submitting that, but submitting a "Why Penn?" if I get waitlisted?
I'm a 3.75/171, got a package + fee waiver from Penn, top 50 undergrad.

Thanks. (What a n00bish post with all the questions :( )

First, doesn't penn ask for the additional essays be one page double spaced? You may want to cut down to get closer to this.

Second, an LSAT addendum for a 171?

Poor explanation by me, sorry. The addendum is only 13 lines, 2 reasonable sized paragraphs. Probably just a little over half a page, double-spaced.

LSAT - I got a 162 in June, then a 171 in September. My extremely close grandmother and my pretty close great-grandmother died on consecutive days in May, just before finals and LSAT, and that's what the addendum is about.

Sorry, I misread two paragraph for two page.

And that sounds like a reasonable addendum with that explanation. If you can say everything you want in two paragraphs, the length shouldn't be a problem.

I also don't think it's a bad strategy to hold off on why penn and then submit it if you get waitlisted. IMO, there is a chance you would get wl either way, so this gives you something to fire back if you do.

Are you ED? I've been complete since 11/2, and am still in the queue for review...or something like that.

Just had a date change in Under Review from a week or so ago to today's date. Consensus is that this means nothing for Penn, correct?
