UPenn Admissions

Post by deviant_lime » Wed Feb 09, 2022 8:27 pm

Has anyone received a decision for UPenn yet? I saw a few people got invited to an open house, did they say when they would be making decisions?

Just emailed them. They said that the department won't be able to make first round of offers for another few weeks. And for those who didn't receive invitations, including me, I think we are doomed already. :mrgreen:

That's unfortunate. I guess I will have to wait a long time for a rejection.

Penn already had their open house? Wow, that's incredibly early. I thought they would hold the open house in mid-March like all the other schools. Anyways, that is good to know!

The open house was held virtually. Once I got my admission, they had me set up plans for an individual in-person visit day.

I did contact them a few days earlier and they told me that same day that I have been waitlisted. Then they sent the email yesterday as well, even though I was already told this earlier.

This is weird. They might have a backlog sending admissions. It doesn't hurt to email and ask them. After all, why inviting people to open house if they are not admitted.

No, they just said that I was waitlisted. But they said that they expect to make more offers as they believe some students might turn down the offers.

Thanks a lot! Penn is one of the few schools I've seen where ppl on the waitlist actually get admitted eventually.

I applied for UPenn pure math and didn't get into waitlist. I see they obviously sent out some rejections today. I didn't get anything. What is it supposed to mean? Is anyone in the same boat?

Also question: is math department at UPenn small? Why is its math ranking low compared to other ivies?

Upenn math department normally has a incoming class of around 10-12 students according to their website.

I have not heard anything from them yet. But I guess that like U-W-Madison they will be sending rejections in two waves! So perhaps we have to wait a couple more days for rejection! :( :(

I think they're just waiting for those were accepted to make a decision. When I was accepted, the email asked us to respond sooner rather than later and said "In particular, if you decide not to accept our offer, telling us this early will permit us to make an offer to an applicant who is on our waiting list: they would likely very much wish to know sooner rather than later." It definitely does seem like there's a waitlist of sorts. Maybe you're on it unofficially?

I got the offer of the Ph.D. in AMCS on Friday and accepted it in 10 minutes. Unfortunately, I know nothing about the mathematics program.

Thanks for the info though. It could be helpful to others. Wish you all the best at Penn!

Hi, has anyone declined their offers or heard anything from them recently?
I just declined my offer.
Thanks for the timely update! I've been shamelessly stalking you on this forum. You sure have a handful of great offers to choose from. Good luck to you with your chosen program!
