or is it too early for me to have received a decision?

sorry, i worded that incorrectly
probably just a bit
that's only like 2-3 weeks and in my completely uneducated opinion I feel like it's just a bit too brief of a timeframe
I just now went complete. It’s been two months since I applied. What the hell
That guy made a rough breakdown of hearing back by school by application date
Penn is 87%+ have heard back if you applied 11/20 or earlier
drops to almost 0 for dates after
13:17
Anybody else get a date change today?
way late on this but if anyone knows where I could find an accepted students' discord/groupme/anything lmk, looking to get connected with people
minimal
22:36
finally went UR today
how is Penn ranked #4 but they are also splitter friendly? unlike duke which is #5 and not...
I would venture to say rankings have a lot more to do with a variety of metrics than just the LSAT score of admits
@BizarreInsidiousPebble: a chat for Penn?
yea like a groupme or whatever
I requested the facebook group but wasn't sure if there was some chat already set up
@LawSchoolPrincess: when you think about it, most admitted applicants are splitters or reverse splitters. It's relatively rare to be above both medians

@BizarreInsidiousPebble: check the aggregate post on reddit there is a discord server

PaltryWickedPeacock
19:25
just starting to worry that even if i don't get one of those scholarships i won't get any merit at all since my numbers are not amazing
@PaltryWickedPeacock: on the law school admissions reddit or is there one for penn
nvm I think I found it
