Have any "helds" heard back? Or still nothing?

exactly the same, what are your guys' stats?


172, 3.76


This whole cycle is very strange. It seems like they are not reviewing apps in the order in which completed. I went complete mid Jan. Was UCR 1/29 and accepted on 2/19. Im 170/3.89, so nothing special (by Penn standards). Based purely on anecdotal evidence I think high GPA applicants are out performing this cycle. Maybe a push to a more SLS/Boalt style policy? Who knows?

Could be, though I'm more inclined to think it's probably more of a short-term strategy to capitalize on the surge in applicants (if anything).

Hey all,

I sent in a "Why Penn/5 Year Plan" essay to their "contactadmissions" email address a few days ago. Have not received a reply or confirmation yet, but I just went UCR today.

Would love to attend Penn... should I call them and make sure they received it fine?

Probably true, but ive always wondered when other schools in the lower t14 (8-14) would start copying Boalts 'gaming' strategy. If you accept a kid with a high GPA and an average LSAT (t14 standards), one in which his chances of getting into a YHSCCN are fairly low because of his/her score, while rejecting higher scorers that dont meet your "holistic review standards" (a euphemism for YP), you can lower your acceptance rate and raise your yield (since you increase your chances of being the top school the applicant is admitted to and you weed out the kids that will likely attend a better school). Just check out Boalts LSN, its a sea of red. Obviously this strategy would only work if just a few schools try it, but I wouldnt be suprised if more schools give it a shot.

Would a targeted recommendation and a LOCI help at all with Penn waitlist, or is WL really just a soft ding?

Just went from 2/4 to 3/4. I'm 171/3.56.

Maybe we'll all get good news tomorrow! :D (I'm going to be crushed now when it's a WL batch D:)
