Hmm you give me hope. Did you write any of the supplemental essays?


I only wrote the 5 year plan, basically just wrote a why penn essay...it wasn't too hard as I am from Philly and Penn is probably my number 1 choice

Hmmm...I think I was UR on or about 1/19 and then I went to UCR on 1/29. My status updated against to UCR on 2/1/10. Don't know what any of that means as far as hearing back soon. :?

Since people usually have at most three UR dates, it should mean that your next news will be a decision.

did you send something and/or call?


I sent them an LOCI and updated my resume. They told me that we will hear before April but it should be MUCH MUCH MUCH sooner (this was in December)

Well good job Penn, I have moved from Penn being my number one choice to now seriously considering withdrawing because I just spoke with them on the phone and they think the that the earliest "held" candidates will hear back is Mid-March.

Ouch, that sucks. Is that for people with grade requests, too?

No point in withdrawing though; you can always just wait and see what happens. Mid-March is still scholarship negotiation time, before deposits are due.


I guess thats true, but I want to have an idea of where I am going by that time so I guess I will just wait and if they dont give me a scholarship then send them a no thank you letter.

She also said that it is most likely going to be April when we hear back? I dont know though, maybe she was lowering expectations but that sucks if true, I freakin applied in September with above median numbers.

If there is a school that YP's, it's UPenn. Unfortunate. Hears to you going to a school that doesn't frustrate you.

I got in earlier with similar #s. I wouldn't be so quick to play the YP card.

Got a call from an unknown number in class today, with voicemail, I was hoping it was Penn, but as soon as I checked the missed call and saw "Austin, TX" under the number I knew it was UT. I went UCR 1/29, so maybe tomorrow?

Is there usually that fast of a turn-around after going UCR?

Depends... took me about a month. For others, a lot longer.

Haha, didn't think so, thanks. What fun would this process be without status checkers to refresh for months on end?

Fun in the sun rather than getting tanned by the computer screen.

No idea-probably not, but I think I saw that a UCR 1/28 got accepted today. I've heard back from 4 out of 11, and I'm starting to really lose my mind (checking my phone every 2 minutes, checking the mailbox multiple times a day even though I'm fairly certain the mailman comes before I even get up, going through the message board too many times a day). I wish I could just forget that I ever applied to law school.

I think earlier applications have more leeway for being accepted than later ones for UPenn, when the numbers are obviously above what their entering class is.
