Tell us what's important to you
does penn call for A?
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?
theyre just as indecisive as us @top1percentdelulu
how long does penn usually keep people under review
Went under committee review first on 3/25
Status date change 4/1 but still UR
Anyone have a timeline or similar update?
has anyone hear back about sadie? i saw someone put 04/26 but that's like a future date so i'm confused
Somebody called fin aid and decisions should be out this week
Someone called financial aid office specifically to ask about the Sadie scholarship?
Yes but some decisions came out this morning
Last year they released an update on the WL around this time -- hopefully they do something similar this week as well?
I was rejected from the waitlist
So things are moving
When were you rejected from the WL?
any updates since the last WL>R wave / email saying their class is currently full on 5/8.
i got an email last week about interviewing about a seat
and i just got the call today
i know of 3 other people who did as well
damn RIP
lol what a legendary performance @HoganGoesOver
WL at Temple, in at Penn
@BurlyEnchantedBoar: lol. they said they were interested in me and to send a why temple by x date, never did and then got slapped with it
out of curiosity, did you have anything super unique about your application? @HoganGoesOver hope you don't take offense but it's obviously very surprising to see a 162 get into UPenn off the WL.
@BurlyEnchantedBoar: nah im just Him
