So when does Penn send another E wave? They just moved to the top of my law hub
Taking over a month to go complete -- after applying on the later side to begin with -- was not a pleasant feeling.

How is it that applicants who applied after me are already UR and I'm still complete and in queue for review?
If i went under review 3/6 and just had another update today, does that sound like an incoming R? seems like quick turnaround

How do you know if you are UR2 or UR3
@Barbz If that school moves to top of Lawhub, and UR2/UR3 is when under review date changes even when your status doesn't change
Does anyone ever get off the WL at Penn? Why do they WL so many?
