Hey gingerbread,

I created a profile to let you know that I received an email a while ago stating:

"Please note that the Penn Law LLM application deadline is December 15, 2013. Unfortunately, there was conflicting information on the LSAC website. Consequently, we will accept deadline extension requests here."

The "here" in question is:

https://www.law.upenn.edu/admissions/grad/frequentlyaskedquestions/forms/deadline-extension.php

Unsure whether you were aware of this, so thought the information could come in handy.

Best to you,
OfficerDawg

Hey guys,

Do you know when Penn starts to deliver answers for the regular admission?
My status is "Application under Review", but I doubt we'll have answers before february for the regular admission.
Are your status the same?

They mention on their website that early app will receive admission results by february 1st; and by March for the regular applicants. So still a long way!
I haven't heard of anyone that got an answer from Upenn and didn't see any "admitted" on the App Tracker as well.

Hi guys! I got an admission offer from UPenn a while ago, but only since I applied for the term starting in January or so (by mistake - not a good start :-) i was offered a partial tuition waiver as well. When I asked they allowed me to deffer to the fall term. I donť think I will be going though. Just wanted to let you know I will give up the space. Good luck to all of you!!

Hi Sayo! Thank you! Im only admitted this early cause I applied for the wrong term :-)
And yes, I did get into Berkeley - the Professional track, I believe everyone applying for the Professional track would have the answer by now, they make the decision within 2 weeks after you submit your application. Still waiting for two more decisions but I think I will go to Berkeley in any case.

Good luck to all of you guys, the waiting seems to have no end!

You are really lucky! I am a Penn student and I didnt know that they have two periods of admission...and I was talking to the admissions office and they told me that no offer was sent yet...They will start in January though...

Are u talking about Upenn or Penn state?

UPenn is great! I like it so much! You have to study a lot though! And if you are a corporate lawyer, I recommend you to take the Wharton program. Classes at Wharton are really interesting and very useful for corporate lawyers.
