UPenn Fall 2015

I think we all have the "April 1st" deadline, so probably we'll be all making the decision at least before the last week of march. The problem is that HLS and SLS release their decisions late in March.


Thanks a lot, mpgrijalva!

I have a feeling there is at least 50-100 students wait listed. So chances are quite low...



Waitlisted as well. Not sure if there are any applicants who were rejected. I feel the same but let us wait till after HLS releases its decisions I am sure many spaces will be available by then.

For all of you guys waitlisted, I can only say that the admission staff from Penn knows what they are doing and I can only assume that they expect a significant number of candidates to reject the offers made any time soon. At that moment you may receive an offer.

Hang tight and best of luck! Any of you enrolling for sure at Penn Law?

@mensrea - You maybe right about the waitlist theory. I cross-checked with last year's posts and the year before that. Applicants whose status disappeared got an email the next day informing them that they had been waitlisted.

My Status went blank this morning! However, now I have four heads under the "Status" window -

"Current Status"
"Current Status Date"
"Decision Status"
"Decision Status Date"
(all of which are blank)

I guess this is because the LSAC website is undergoing maintenance. I hope this is why our "Status" disappeared (though it is unlikely)



I didn't see any update in LSAC concerning my offers. Is it on the Completed LSAC window? I had a problem with UPenn website and didn't see my status change, so I can't confirm the theory. By the way, did anyone get an offer today?

From what I have observed, most people in this chat already got at least one offer.

How big is UPenn's class? Is it big like NYU (400 students) or small like Chigago (70 students). Does anyone know?

The email says 1300+ students applied. Surely they didnt admit hundred and put 1200+ on the waiting list.

Wow, I didn't think they'd start offering admissions to people on the waitlist that early, since HLS, CLS and NYU have not finished giving offers yet.

Even I am wait-listed. Seems like a large number has been wait-listed. I guess we will have to wait and see :(
