Oh, right, yeah, that's totally what I meant. because by "Top 17," I clearly meant any of the colleges in the top 17. . . not just the ones ranked 17.


:roll:

Yeah, I caught that. Thanks, though.

Waitlisted as well, not particularily surprised, but obviously would have preferred an acceptance. Having some other good choices takes some of the sting away though.

Wow, denied. 3.75/171

Really, really weird timing. I just visited last Friday (it was really nice), had a pleasant meeting with Dean Post (not sure how I even got this, but the secretary "hooked me up"), and wrote her a thank-you letter and a follow-up letter yesterday to the admissions committee. And now a straight-out denial.....not even a wait-list.

As far as I can tell, no red flags on my application, and I'm in at 4 other top 30 schools (the only ones I applied to). Just so weird to me.

Advice: should I follow up at all with Dean Post? Is there any way to inquire about it, or should I just let it lie?

FWIW, she saw me again after our meeting and asked me how everything was going, but she didn't respond to my thank-you e-mail (I'm sure this is over-analytical, but I'm a bit fuzzy atm, sorry).

Yeah, I knew that you knew. I was just continuing the farce. My bad.

Any speculation on whether 11/25 UR batch of WL's were actually YP's?

I am wondering whether to stay on the WL. :?

Edit: didn't end up choosing WL.

Seriously? I have the exact same stats, and was complete just a few days before you were...

EDIT: Wait List status checker. Damn. That's my first decision too...

Question: Is the "response" requested in the WL e-mail supposed to be a full-on LOCI type thing, or a simple, "Yes please I would like to be considered"?

It partly depends on how interested you are.

How do dings and waitlists arrive? Snail mail? Email? Status Checker? What about acceptances?

Has anyone who sent in an essay/LOCI in response to being held gotten a response back from Penn yet? Not a decision, but just an email or update saying they received your letter and updated your file?
