UPenn Transfer Thread Fall 2021

You should!

Update: mid term report still marked missing. D emailed yesterday to inquire about waiver status and the email back said you can’t get a waiver, you have to send something explaining your grades. Huh? She’s on a GAP year…there are no grades. smh

Edited to add: kudos to the admissions department. Super quick resolution after a phone call with a very nice AO.

Hoping the decision is out next week. I wish they would release the decision date.

Based on previous years, I think the decision will be out next Friday the 14th.

did penn just shut down its portal with a message saying that it’ll releases its decision on may 17th?

Yep!

Did everyone get the same message?

“Thank you for your application to the University of Pennsylvania. We will post admissions decisions here on Monday, May 17th, at 5:00 p.m. ET. We have enjoyed getting to know you through this process.”

I honestly really like that. They give a concrete date and time. They only left one message on everyone’s portal. I won’t stress out over it during finals time.

:joy: they really did. I find it funny how they’re not letting us assume anything for ourselves. They haven’t even been emailing a lot of us back. I respect their set date but I also kind of want to investigate and analyze for “indicators” though :sweat_smile: Does anyone know or has anyone seen/received any indicators of acceptance/rejection?

I think that since upenn doesn’t have a separate FA portal and they closed their app portal we just have to wait (not that there would be indicators there just that we literally have nowhere else to look for them), one week isn’t too bad to wait though :slight_smile:

Hey guys, did upenn send an email or just left the message on the portal? I’ve been having problems login into my email so idk:(

it’s by email, and if you login your portal now, there will be nothing but a statement saying that “Thank you for your application to the University of Pennsylvania. We will post admissions decisions here on Monday, May 17th, at 5:00 p.m. ET. We have enjoyed getting to know you through this process.” :slight_smile:

Thank you!!!

Is legacy taken into account for transfer admissions decisions?

Haven’t seen anything official saying it helps. But who really knows what’s discussed in the admissions committee.

Highly probable also y would they ask if they didnt
