So if I didn't get a call but I went under 2nd review on 2/18, does that mean I'm rejected?

Wow, looks like today was "boost GPA median" day. Congrats guys!

Went complete yesterday, so it's good to see they are still letting people in.

Just got the waitlist email. They said they wanted my fall grades, and I guess a 3.94 wasn't high enough.

Held for further review 12/17
172 and 3.80

In via phone message at home. Was at work and checked my email, which said that I should have received a phone call by now.

Thrilled!

Congrats to everyone who was accepted today! JP09 would you mind sharing your numbers or at least their relation to the 25-75% at Penn?

One of my friends is on the waitlist too ... (not a TLSer) Any ideas on whether it's even worth sending in extra stuff? She wants to put down a deposit for Illinois instead. It would really suck to keep hoping and praying all summer only to be let down again.

Me (applied November, complete early December, first went UCR in late January). Though with my numbers I view the long wait as more of a stay of execution than anything. They can take all the time they need, I say.

I applied mid-Nov, complete early Dec, and have been stuck at 1/7 UCR since then. I'm really starting to think someone spilled coffee on my file and then tossed it out or something? If it reaches 12 weeks (next week or the week after I think) I'm going to call and ask what's going on.

I applied mid November, complete in early Dec. No news yet. I am dying to get back to Philly, I got into Temple but I really, really want Penn.

Got the WL email around 5:30 pm CST today and withdrew right away. I don't remember exact complete & UCR dates, but the former was in the 1st half of December & the latter was on or around 2/5. Congrats to the new admits & good luck to everyone still waiting. :)

I applied on 1/20 and I am not complete yet, should I call to check? Seems like people that submitted after me have been complete for a little bit now.

The last update I had was 2/5 UR. I got the offer of admission on the phone on Friday, and the email shortly after. LSAT = 75%, GPA < 25%. So I guess they accepted a lot of high GPA applicants to offset my crappy one.

Good luck to everyone! I know Penn may not be a great school to many of you but this was one of my first choices. It's been such a rough application process for me, recently culminating in getting WL to Notre Dame. At that point I gave up on getting in anywhere in the T14, and now I can finally relax.
