why are you so nervous about it anyways? you have applied to many top law schools, and you just need to be offered admission from couple of them in order to be satisfied with you choice :-) I don't think there is a reason to be tensed. by the way, mdm, who is participating in this forum, got a deferral from Penn and got admission from Columbia.

Yes, I got accepted by CLS and i am very very happy for that. I know it is kind of selfish and maybe I'm just too spoiled, but I still was a little disappointed by Upenn's deferral. Anyway, I agree with someone that said the decision process is pretty random: you never know what each school is looking for in a specific year, the profile of the other applicants, how many of each country have been admitted, among many other factors that somehow affect the decisions. So I guess we just have to understand that we probably wont be admitted to every school we applied to, but trust that we will have some pretty great schools to choose from in a few months.

@GodBless, what do you mean by update your profile? Is that even possible after the application has been submitted?

Btw, I'm a "she" :)

@GodBless, I'm sure you will get an offer from a law school here in the US! Just try to calm down. I know it is not easy to wait, but we are in February and maybe you will need to wait a little bit more (the schools may send offers until July!).

hey mdm31!
Oh somehow, great t hear your a girl :D (sorry all the guys out here! )

Also.. congratulations on Columbia! Also I did not mean to say you're selfish or anything. Its just that knowing that you got into Columbia is the best thing that could happen. I am sure u know that! So i know its disappointing but don't be disappointed about UPenn. PLus its just a deferral.

And yes, u can update them with your activities even after application is complete. For ex. I did an apprenticeship with a senior counsel after applying to UPenn post which I got into a huge MNC. So I updated them with the same.

Hey! Thanks a lot :) That is very sweet of you to say! Hopefully I will hear from then sooner than later! And with good news ofcourse! But again, thank you :)
You sound so positive. I wish I were like that!

I'm sure that you have the profile they are looking for. You have a great TOEFL score, you are practising law in your country...

What is this 'application status' everyone seems to be looking at? I have login information for both Duke and UCLA but never received anything from UPenn. Do any of you have accounts to log in to on their website? (I applied through LSAC)

Hi~

I'm curious about my current situation.

I applied on 28th November for early notification(and I received 'admission acknowledgement mail' at the same date), and LSAC reported to penn on 4th December.

But I haven't received admission or deferral mail yet!
(my current status: application under review)
What does this mean? Am I rejected?
Or do I have a chance for admission?

I'm so nervous...

I would say that December 4th is too late for early notification (Penn asks for all the material to be submitted until December 1st). You are probably in the regular cycle, and should receive decision in following month(s).

Hey Folks

I applied to UPenn a couple of days back. Reading the posts in this thread it seems I will not hear from until April.

Congratulations to those who got in and best wishes to all of us who are hoping for the best!

But any suggestions to improve my profile?


Come on, this is absurd. Do you really think that asking these kind if questions or, even more, updating us on your work ex and profile, will help?If you just got accepted for an internship, just relax and do you best at your job. We are not teenagers applying for undergrad...

Ah BTW, got accepted @UPenn. Anyone knows how scholarships work? Do I have to apply or I am considered automatically? To be fair, I have not yet reviewed all the info they sent me so probably the answer is in there:)

Dude! If u want to help, help! If you have suggestions give them. If not just keep quiet! We are all looking to just help each other and share.
and besides what I post and what questions I ask is MY choice!! whether or not u find it absurd is irrelevant! If you don't want to help, it is your choice. but then, just keep quiet!

you got in- great! Congratulations! But if anything's absurd, it is the fact that u think that u calling something absurd will be of any importance to anyone here!

Kind of inclined to agree with TY.

Well, that is rather contradictory of you to say. Note your final sentence on your reply to TY. You said no one would care if he found something to be absurd or not. Perhaps I agree with him, therefore someone on the forum must think that his observations "matter".

I would prefer to come on these threads to read about people's application statuses or information about the University, not personal issues or development queries. Maybe a separate thread would be more suitable for that purpose.

Just saying.

that was exactly my point!
I don't know who TY is! or why he has to pick on what people has to say.
So if you don't want to see 'personal issues'- tell the person u agree with.
Besides, if you're agreeing you're adding to it.
