Penn Transfer 2019

Postby MSUN5 » Mon Jun 17, 2019 3:45 pm

Went complete 5/31. Strong Philly ties.

Penn normally moves pretty quick, hopefully we get movement soon.

I went UR 6/18, too! In past years interview requests have been made pretty shortly after applicants go UR, so hopefully we get them soon.

Also, what’re your stats JS? Any Philly ties/other schools you’re applying to?

I am at a school in the T20s, top 10% strong ties to NY and DC. Was accepted EA at GULC. Also applying to NYU and Columbia but I’m very excited about Penn.

I guess we’re all in similar-ish places then. I’m at a school in the 30’s, top 3%, also got into GULC EA. Have you withdrawn from your 1L school yet or are you on the fence about Georgetown?

Jane, you landed GULC EA too, right?

No, I decided to do RD. My app went complete about 2 weeks ago.

I haven’t withdrawn yet. I’m still making a final decision. What about you?

Haven't withdrawn just yet but I will shortly. I just wanted to wait until my administration had sent out all the materials I needed them to--which they have. I more or less locked myself into transferring when I elected not to do write-on at my old Uni after being admitted to GULC EA.

Also, back on topic: anyone receive an interview request from Penn yet? In past years it seems like they started coming out pretty shortly after everyone went UR. Can't stop refreshing my e-mail...

Jane, your stats are so excellent that when I see some status update which happens to me also happens to you I'm like, "Deep breath, man. Deep breath. It's happening to Jane too, it's alright." Lol.

Think this means IV requests soon?

Ha! I think our stats and school ranks are about the same so I'm watching your results much the same way!

I’ll tell you what though: looks like we came out on the wrong end of these IV requests today. We can only hope more come next week.
