I went complete in about a day, from 10/14 receipt to 10/15 complete. I would say you'll probably go complete by Friday.


Thanks for the replies. I went complete this afternoon. Feel better about it now.

I submitted DS, Why Penn/5 year, and the literature essay. The only essay I didn't write was the grade/LSAT addendum.

I just did a literature one. I'm hoping that doesn't relegate me to waitlist territory.

Same here. My choice actually fit right into my DS and PS though, so maybe that helps? Or maybe that will just get them bored with me?

I didn't complete the "five year plan" essay, but I did complete topics 1 and 2 (slightly modified diversity statement and LSAT addendum). In my diversity statement I specifically mentioned Penn.

Is it a huge problem that I didn't do the five year plan, which I guess is the new "why penn?"

I've got a 3.75 and two LSATs... a 161 and 171 (non-urm). Do you guys think I have a good shot?

I'm curious . . . what piece of literature did some of you use?

Sent in my application today. Penn is definitely one of the school at the top of my list. Let's see what happens...

Went complete today. They're not my top choice but I can see myself going there if it ends up that way.

Went complete on 10/12. One of my more preferred choices in schools. According to LSN, the non-ED people start hearing back in late December.

None. I sort of twisted the 5 year plan one into a "Why Penn" essay, which is what is what in a convoluted sense, I guess. I'm complete as well, since 10/8.

Someone (hi mods :) ) should merge this with the Penn waiting room thread.

Submitted my application sans an LOR earlier today.

Submitted a Why Penn? that pretty much said I wasn't totally sure which of a couple of directions I wanted to go with my life, but the availability of the cross-disciplinary programs at Penn made it easy to go into school flexible. That, combined with my ultra-cheesy literature essay might make the adcomm collectively facepalm.

But considering I'll probably get YP'ed if I don't submit as much stuff as possible, I figure crap is better than nothing.

Good idea, I never realized another one existed.

edit: I guess I did since I posted in. These things are all starting to blur together.

You would not believe how convoluted this is to do. Give me five.
