My other phone calls have all been in the afternoon or even evening (6:30-7ish). I'm not sure what the trend is for Penn but I don't think you can call the day over at noon.

people being out of school actually makes less sense for the before-noon thing. how many undergraduates actually have classes 9am - 5pm every day? or even just before noon on a friday?

It seems a little crazy to call before noon. They do kind of expect us to be in school.

quetzal: Hello?
Dean: Can I speak to ******
quetzal: Speaking
Dean: Well I was going to offer you admission to Penn Law, but I see from your transcript that you should be in German class right now. We dont like slackers around here.....(click)


My call came around 10:30. It woke me up. God I love not having class until 11 MWF.

Question for y'all...I am planning on visiting some East Coast schools over spring break. I have family living in Philly that I plan on staying with, and naturally I want to visit UPenn. I haven't been accepted to Penn yet, and I'm trying to finalize my plans.

Does anyone think it would be a good idea to call/email/send letter in order to let them know I'm interested in visiting, but haven't been accepted yet? I think it could possibly help speed up a decision and possibly increase a scholarship offer (I didn't write a Why Penn). How should I go about this? Should I send an email or do an LOCI via snail mail? Also, I don't want to be pushy and come off like "hey, i want a decision so could you please hurry it up?" At the same time, I would like them to speed it up.

Any thoughts are appreciated!

I would go ahead and visit. I scheduled an individual visit for next month and Cheryl in the admissions office was very accomodating.

Had you already been accepted before visiting?

Ya I have, but I don't think that its a big deal to visit before being admitted. I think that they view it as a positive sign you are really considering them and that they have a good shot at getting you to actually attend.

Any thoughts on whether visiting would help after being waitlisted?

I don't think they'd mind me visiting before being admitted. My only concern is making travel plans (I live on the other side of the country) only to be WL/Denied. I'm wondering how to gently ask them if I could get a decision soon because I'm interested in visiting their school and need to finalize travel plans. I think a phone call would be bad. I'm debating between email and snail mail.

I think it could help a great deal. If not just for the direct contact you could have with the admissions office, I think it would provide great material for a LOCI.

Well, looks like this whole conversation was for naught. Just got the call...I'm in! Last UCR was 2/1. Good luck to everyone else.

In at Penn today. Received 1/14, never got an UR, Complete 2/15.

Does anyone know if they mention scholarship offers when they make the call, or would that info potentially be in the letter? They didn't say anything to me, but I was hoping I was competitive for them.

She didnt say anything to me about scholarship forms, but I suspect they will come with the packet. I dont think I have the numbers to get anything though, but ill still try.

Was UCR 2/9, saw today that that was changed to UCR 2/18. Does that mean anything?

Next step is Under Committee Review (UCR). That might take a while, though, it's not uncommon to wait over a month in the queue (I was closer to two).
