Give me a break...Penn Still Pending!
« on: April 09, 2005, 12:12:15 AM »
Has anyone still not heard from Penn??  I thought I would be an automatic reject, but I am still waiting on them?  Do you think I actually hae a chance?   
Is anyone else in the same boat?  :-*

Ditto... Complete since around  Feb. 1st. Amazingly annoying--know, rationally, that I'm a reject, but still holding out hope for an acceptance. Misguided? Yes. Why oh why must they lead me on?

I heard someone say they were way backed up with applications this year, so guessing its pretty chronological in terms of review. When were you complete?

I called Penn yesterday and they told me that my application is "about to be submitted for review"!!!!!!!!!!!  I told the lady I had been complete since ~February 4, and she apologized, saying this year's "applications were up".  I should have, but didn't, ask her if applications were being reviewed alphabetically since that's the only way this situation could make sense for me, being "W".

I was complete in early Feb.  I too should be an auto-reject, but I've still heard nothing, and I'm a "G."

Sometimes I imagine that my phone will ring and it'll be Penn letting me know I've been accepted--but then I snap out of my daydream.  It's fun to pretend that I may get in.  Sooner or later they'll reject me, and I'll have to give up the fantasy.

I have been complete since December 21 and NOT ONE WORD from them.  Oh well.  Is it my turn to row?

Ditto. Complete since end of January. I've given up any hope on Penn.
