Accepted at PENN!
« on: December 09, 2004, 10:16:55 PM »
Got the call tonight from Derek Meeker. He said that the letter will be sent in a week or two, and then a big packet of info around January. A very nice phone call indeed.

I'm going to the bar right now instead of studying for finals.

Also got into Temple today.

3.9ish/170ish (approximate numbers).

Congrats on both acceptances!

When did you go complete at Temple? I didn't expect them to have any decisions out before New Years...

Hey congrats! I still haven't gotten a penn phone call, but I haven't gotten a deferred email either. ah well. que sera sera!

but let's focus on the temple accept for a moment. Was it email or snail mail? What date did you apply? Cause I'm waiting on that one too!

The temple letter came in a small envelope and was only one page. It said more information would come later. I was complete around the end of October.

Congrats! You must be the first acceptee of the year...(or at least on LSD!!) How cool!
Oh, sweetheart, you don't need law school. Law school is for people who are boring and ugly and serious!

Also got into Temple today.

I love that footnote on the heels of your 3.9/170s Penn acceptance.  It sounds like you have a pretty tough choice.  I recommend Temple.  As a matter of fact, as someone applying to Penn, I recommend that EVERYONE accepted at Penn choose Temple. :)

Thanks for the kind words. I'm definitely excited. I had seen a few posts on Wednesday night from two people who said they got calls from Derek Meeker, and I guess that myself and a few others got called last night. All of the calls, from what I've heard, have been after 5:00. I suppose that after business hours he decides to call a few people before he goes home. It seems like it will take a long time to call all the acceptees this way, however. I'm curious to know how many EA applications they received (there were reports of an increase in 77%).

If Temple threw me suitcases full of money to go there, and Penn and other schools that I applied to would not, I would consider going to Temple. But I suppose that decision will have to wait quite a while...
