If I am UCR, is it too late to send some missive to Penn along the lines of, "please accept me, you are my first and only love. if offered admission, i will accept the same day" ?????

Edit: This was a serious post. I am asking.

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


In a word: no.


Actually I went UCR on 1/29 and got my acceptance call on 2/4, so it only took about a week.

If you didn't write a "why" essay then this might help. Call the admissions office and ask how they feel about adding stuff to your file. Good luck.

And if you do call, report back to the rest of us. Would be useful to know.

Admits are called; non-admits hear via email or status checker.

Eeek, that was a fail.

Btw, I guess a lot of people "pay out the ying yang" to go to Penn. (where did I get that expression anyway?) My point is that I really want to go to an intellectually rigorous institution, at any cost.

I think my application went straight from complete to UCR. Could that mean anything good or bad?

Even if God had a separate voicemail system for 0Ls, the message light would always be blinking.

How long after you go under committee review do you get your decision?

edit: oops, read the previous poast(s) fail.

Question... I took my first LSAT a couple of days ago, rocked 3 sections, and had some trouble on RC... seriously considering cancelling. I know I want to apply ED to Penn for the class of 2011, so... for those of you who got in ED this cycle, did any of you have a low-ish LSAT score and then took the test again and got a higher one (167+)? I seriously have no idea what I got on the test, and I'm not sure whether cancelling or keeping my score is the right choice here... I know Penn doesn't really say whether they average or not, so that doesn't help...

Did anyone who was admitted have over a month pass between their last UCR date and being admitted? I've been UCR since 1/7 (either my 2nd or third UCR date, can't quite remember, submitted mid-November), and I've heard nothing!

My numbers are in my profile (and in YP territory), but I did put a lot of time and effort into writing three supplemental essays since Penn is one of my top choices (every one except the GPA/LSAT addendum type question). Should I be expecting a WL at this point or should I send a LOCI or anything?

Okay, I called and they said as long as there is no final decision it is not too late to add. Just fax or email b/c of time sensitivity.

+1 (also 1/29 -> 2/8). If we're a group, I feel for you. I expect a rejection.
