Can someone slide me some deets on their informational interview?

As an aside, no movement for this splitter.

If anyone could PM any additional details they want to share about the meeting or any questions that are absolute must asks in the question session, can you please DM me? I don't have super high hopes, but I still would love to leave a good impression.

Has anyone done an interview over the phone or skype? I'm going to have to as I'm far from Penn and I want to know what it's like. :)

These interviews... I didn't sign up, did I make a mistake? I thought they said non-evaluative... or is that code for something I stupidly thought meant nothing but actually does?

Penn 2020 FB group has 233 members. Even with some current students included that seems like a lot considering last years class size was 242. I'm worried.

I thought they are gonna start review waitlist in mid May so....


They sent me a confirmation email but didn't change my status page. Doubt it's too late. They started reviewing but I think they would still consider new additions as they come in


Thanks.
In the first email they said they would start reviewing on mid-May, but they actually started earlier right?
And the email to send LOCI is the contactadmission...right?
Anything we can do besides LOCI and campus visit? :(


Yeah they all said late may and they all started reviewing earlier (except Columbia and Stanford ofc). Yeah they provided the email address in the WL update email. Not sure about anything other than LOCI and campus visits. Definitely keep them informed about updates, and if you find yourself on the waitlist in June maybe retake LSAT, unless you're already above their median ( but that's a big time committment )

I'll have to look into it then, thanks. Don't even know what to ask, but they've gotta know I'm interested.

Thanks. Would they let us know if we are not on the waitlist any longer?

I had no idea that was an option. Did you have to contact admissions to make that request?

Yes, I believe it is an option worth pursuing too. You can just email them and ask to set up a phone call or skype interview.

If I recall correctly, I looked at last year's thread and they did let people know when they were rejected. Anyone feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks. So it's not like we can remain on the waitlist as long as we want to...I remember they said they will update the waitlist info later, maybe they will let us know then if we are rejected or still on the waitlist (or accepted)...
Is this the same for other schools btw? :(

Yeah I think so. Columbia Is sort of an exception because they wait till the very very end to reject most people. I also am not sure about Stanford but I'm pretty sure last year Harvard and Penn will start rejections next week if similar to last year

Had the informational interview. It was very friendly and low key, just an occasion for you to ask them questions. They told me that from this point on, they will begin releasing people from the waitlist, so everyone remaining on it will have a realistic shot at getting in. So fingers crossed for updates on Monday or Tuesday - I would say. PM if you would want details of the interview.

Had waitlist interview, it was less one-sided and more friendly than my Michigan WL interview, but it's still really just a chance to ask questions.

Did they tell you if there will ever be movement again or is it fine for me to just drink myself to sleep tonight?

I got a call telling me I was offered a spot on a Thursday, email the next day (Friday). My online commitment to enroll form was due the following Monday, and deposit due that Wednesday.
