Penn State 2010 application cycle

Postby joliveri » Wed Nov 04, 2009 12:37 pm

Hey I got my application in on October 27th and I just called the admissions office today and was told that my application was complete. Does anyone have any idea the earliest I would be hearing back from them?

On December 1, they send a status checker link to your email. I think they're pretty slow.

yeah I've heard of people last year though getting their application in around the same time and hearing back before Thanksgiving. The office of admissions said that they start reviewing applications in mid-November.

Check the PSU 2008-2009 cycle on LSN. You can definitely find out there.

Hey thanks that was pretty helpful. It seems that if you are at their medians or above them you hear sooner depending on when you get your application in. We'll see...

No problem. Yeah, I definitely noticed that. Those above received decisions as early as late November, whereas those at or below had to wait until well after the new year.

I've gone complete at Penn. I hope to get an answer soon, as my numbers are at or above the median (3.23, 164).

Has anyone received an email saying their application is complete? I only received the "received" email in October. Based on LSN, we should be hearing some decision next week (let's hope!)

Hey I also got a "Received" email a couple of days after I sent it in but no complete e-mail so I called the admissions office a couple of weeks ago and they said I was complete so you may want to try calling the admissions office.

Looks like PSU has sent out the status checkers today. I'm "under review" as of 11/3 (according to the checker). Anyone else get theirs?

I just got mine too! I have been under review since 11/3 as well. I wonder when we should start hearing decisions?

I just got the status checker too. I submitted mine on 10/17, and it says my review began 11/3. Good luck all :)

Just received mine. The fact that it's a different username than all the other status checkers is a little annoying, but on the plus side, the link is conveniently located on their homepage. And it's nice to know I went complete way back on 11/11.

Status Checker received. My username was the same as every other though. Been complete since 11/3. Fingers crossed for a decision in the near future.

Using LSN it looks like last year's first admits came on Thanksgiving.

I'm going to be optimistic and hope they continue their trend from last year's cycle. On LSN, they sent a wave of acceptances the day before Thanksgiving.

Hey, thanks for dropping in to take questions. Are you happy with your decision to attend PSU? What made you decide to go there? The school is high on my list and would like to hear what your experiences have been so far. Thanks again!

P.S. what campus are you at? I'm wondering if Carlisle was a good choice.

Yeah. When did you get accepted to PennState? :D

Also, did you apply to Temple/Villanova/Pitt?

If so what made you choose Penn?
