UPenn's decision


Waitlisted, but having offers from Columbia, Duke and Chicago (and hoping to reach Yale), it doesn't matter.

But I am curious about the reasons that lead Penn to waitlist me.

BTW, anyone from South America has been accepted

Hey guys... I was rejected by Chicago, and also thought it was very unfair... but come on... let the accepted ones party for a change...

Ah, and let`s remember (defending my "bread") that Upenn and Chicago are both 7th in US News n Report...

These are the people who have come forward to disclose their acceptance.
I am sure there are many more. I am feeling low and I dont think that I would stand a chance since I have been wait listed and not many wait listed students will be offered a place in the program.
I hope more people communicate their decisions so that some of the wait listed candidates may have some hope.
Thank you all for being so cooperative.

Waitlisted today.

Was waitlisted as well. I'm pretty much freaking out over here:( Does anybody have any ideas about the chances for those waitlisted to still get in? Based on past figures for example?

Is there anyone who heard about financial aid in the acceptance? I don't remember if I applied for the financial aid or if UPenn provides such aid.

Dear XXX:

After careful consideration of your application and supporting documents, the International Programs Committee has concluded that it will not be possible to admit you for post-graduate legal study at Penn Law. Competition for the LL.M. Program is very keen and the Committee admits a small number of applicants each year.

We appreciate the interest you have shown in this program and regret that we could not take favorable action upon your application. Unfortunately, Law School policy does not permit us to revisit individual applications or the basis of the Committee's evaluation of them.

I am certain that your past achievements and future promise will continue to lead you to success. We wish you success in your future endeavors in legal education.

Sincerely,


Matthew Parker
Assistant Dean
Graduate Programs
University of Pennsylvania Law School

I also got rejected form UPenn, but I do not care. I am already admitted to Duke and some other Top12 programs.
If they had admitted me, I'd not have excepted their offer. Maybe they felt so too.
Is it possible that the universities know from each other and communicate about admissions decisions?
