Def--->DING! on april 20.  Slobbered all over PEnn in essays, follow ups, etc.  To be honest, I was suprised I made it as long as I did.

No LSN admits since 3/20 (there is one outlier that seems to have conflated a scholarship offer on 3/29 with an admit date)

got my email 2 hours ago.  :(
Did you get deferred at any point, or just complete--> WL?

Penn had 194 admits and 61 admit--> withdrawn at the time of this posting.
Duke 181 Admits and 79 admit ---> withdrawn
Michigan 272 admit and 74 admit ---> withdrawn.

I don't care about the rest, so someone else can do them.
Either way, this isn't reliable or useful data.

I just found out that decisions have been mailed to me from both Vandy and Penn. I haven't received them yet and don't know what they are -- I fully assume them both to be rejections, or possibly WL -- but I'm wondering if either school has notified students of acceptances via snail mail...??

Basically, wondering whether to hold out any thread of hope.... :-\

Penn hasn't accepted anyone since 3/20 (i think the sole 3/29 lsn report is for a scholarship).

Most acceptances post EA late december decisions have been phone--> email.  WL has been email.   All letters have been dings, not WL.

Good luck though, I hope its an acceptance and that they send one my way too.

Called the admissions office today to check status (almost 4 months since deferral).  I am 'still under review' and a decision hopefully will be made soon.  I did not press for a firm timeframe, because I want them to take as much time as posisble if it helps me.

I am pretty confused about what they are waiting on if not yeild numbers.  I have lower than median numbers for both lsat and gpa, but some strong ties to the school. I have gotten my hopes up at this point, foolishly.

Anyone have any theories about the still pending late 05 deferrals at this point?

I've been waiting for over 3 months since being deferred.  Many other people have too.  It's gonna be a while, deal with it.

Sorry you were deferred, but there's no need to be snippy--for many of us the whole reason we are on this board is to commiserate with others who are still chewing their nails to shreds, and this IS our way of dealing with it. I'm not going to apologize for stressing.

Sorry I came off as snippy.  I was hoping to put it in context though.  There seems to be a very large number of folks from Deferrals and RD that will go on well into April.  My sense is (just conjecture) that PEnn needs to have firm yeild info before moving onto borderline apps.  My best guess is that we won't hear much until late April(deposit date), save for an update email.

Rejected at Penn

No surprise here

??? you expected to get rejected w/ your numbers?!

Yeah I got deferred from EA, and didn't even bother sending in a letter of continued interest

Can someone who got the deferal/rejection letter give a clue as to the post mark?  I'm in CA, was fully expecting to get one today, but came up empty.  Obviously I've gone insane but would very much like to know.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: Penn v. Columbia/NYU
« on: March 23, 2006, 02:21:06 PM »
Columbia and NYU are both better for employment (even if its a small difference)and columbia is much better for clerskship academia.
Unless you are averse to NYC, have very strong personal connections to philly or got a lot more money from Penn, it doesn't seem like much of a choice.
