Yes, it does "Under Committee Review."

Haha thanks. I've been reading the boards for the past couple of days and thought I should start contributing to the general knowledge I was taking advantage of.

Yes, it does "Under Committee Review."


Thanks! And so we receive an email when we switch from Complete to UCR?

Do they frequently request fall grades? Only for borderline candidates?

shameless self-promotion: I tried to start a Penn WL thread earlier that didn't take off... a.) possibly cause not enough people had been WL'ed yet, or b.) possibly cause I just suck at life (Penn sure seems to think so).

If it's cause of a.) : viewtopic.php?f=7&t=102604

They don't think you suck at life or else they would have rejected you already. They probably think you marginally suck with a chance of improvement.

Yea it looks like maybe a lot of from the the poorly or average ranked undergrads may have been shut out. I get it on one level, but on another level my 3.65 comes from an undergrad where median grade is still floating around 2.9 or 3.0 so there's not as much grade inflation. Oh well . . . at least I'm in at Michigan.

Damn. All I can say is that I hope you messed something up bad, or have no softs at all. Otherwise, I'm not going either (171, 3.5)


WL'd with a 171 and 3.75, but with a retake from a 161. I had decent softs, including founding a non-profit and community volunteering. Also from a poorly ranked undergrad, though. I wonder if it played a role. Very bummed out, Penn was one of my top realistic choices.

Just updated my file with a new essay after being held yesterday. I hope they show the same promptness in reversing their decision and accepting me.

Denied 1/12/10
166/3.67 URM non-trad--also from an "ordinary" public school. Do you guys/gals really think that they are pulling that elitist crap?

Oh well, at least I'm in @ NYU.

I went to a top-5 liberal arts college and was denied. It probably had something to do with my below median stats.

Yeah--Penn was a reach for me, so I'm not overly stunned. I was just hoping that Penn wasn't "like that," when it came to picking people. It's so 1950s :lol:

Very convenient that they happen to have an info session one of the days I'll be there. Woot.

Also, haha, just noticed your edit. <3
