Is anyone still waiting on a secondary?
That portal issue email almost gave me a heart attack
rt! It's too early in the morning for this I was not ready for that emotional rollercoaster
Found the secondary in my spam folder today. Smh
RIP. Looks like I didn't get a secondary.
Don’t they send to everyone?
I didn’t get one, maybe they’re having issues
I got an email on 7/3 after submitting my secondary that it was complete and under review, but I just got that same email again tonight... is this what they meant by a portal error?
Edit: have received this email 3 times in the past 24 hours and each time my heart skips a beat
I would assume so. I just got the same email, but have been complete since the 15th.
+1 ive got it 4 times...
Same. I guess we’re really complete.
Aagh I keep getting mini heart attacks every time I get an email from Penn .
I’m about to start filtering Penn as spam. They just keep getting my hopes up and breaking them...
maybe they're sending these to the peeps that are actually marked to get II already...conspiracy theory...but sad if true since i'm not getting them
Hey everyone~ question on the global activities prompt. Is this one referring more to study/ internship/ research abroad?(i.e volunteering in a foreign hospital) or should we also talk about living abroad? (I'm an international student so l've been technically living abroad until college...)
Is anyone else worried that every time we receive one of these repeated “application complete” emails it means that their system is pushing back the date that our application is marked as complete?
Lol not until you said this
Is anyone else who has been complete for a long time not been receiving these emails? I haven't seemed to have any problems with the portal...
I called admissions. They said the glitch in the system will NOT cause the completion date to get pushed back every time one of the emails gets sent.
Finally just filled out my secondary. It only gave me 500 characters for #3
"List all science courses that you have taken online."
Does this include sociology?
I don't think that's considered science. That's more humanities and social science.
No IIs yet? Anyone? Does anyone know an estimate of the time period when they start sending them out?
Really? The MSAR dates are driving me crazy, they seem so inconsistent/wrong. MSAR says August for Perelman but I guess no one here has heard news yet
In my experience, MSAR isn't completely accurate in that regard.
last cycle the first II from Penn reported on SDN came in Sept. FWIW. Every cycle can be different though.
Hello friends. Penn student here. We were told by email today interview invitations will start going out week of August 20th.
Thanks! Do you know is Penn is receptive to ITA notifications?
I don't know. You might want to look back at previous years' threads to see if that worked for anyone. I can't recall anyone in my class having said they got their II that way.
Also, I will drop in on this thread from time to time if I hear whispers but this is my throwaway account and I won't be on much. I got some PMs and you shouldn't expect a quick answer. Best of luck everyone.
I had a quick question - my application is still incomplete at Penn because one of my LOR writers ghosted me and the school requires you to have all references in for your app to be complete, even if you meet the minimum LOR reqs already.
Is there any way I can have my app reviewed without the last reference? I tried emailing the Penn admissions office but haven't gotten a reply in almost a week. I wanted to know if there was any other recourse for my situation?!
I would probably call the admissions office and see if they can override that or something. Sorry to hear about your LOR writer ghosting you!
I had this same problem, I called them and the woman on the other end overrode the missing letter. Call tomorrow and they can fix it ASAP and you'll be complete.
Thank you so much!! I sent my app in mid July and was waiting for the LOR writer to upload it, but it's been far too long. Hopefully it's not too late to be complete and have my app reviewed.
No II releases as the current student mentioned???
Also a current student here. The e-mail we received stated that interviews will start the last week of September. When I interviewed, I scheduled about a month out so I expect II to start this coming week
Thanks.... Any idea what says of the week they interview?

Absolutely nothing. a BUNCH our class interviewed the last 2 weeks actually, and the majority interviewed November-January (at least according to word of mouth).
II! Complete 7/25
Damn complete 7/10, nothing yet
Wait...what do you mean? like last two weeks a few months ago?
I think they meant last 2 weeks of interviews
II! Completed secondary couple days after receipt and got the complete email 7/25 too
Congrats! What are your stats?
II - I swear I’ll never understand this process.
CONGRATS!! Complete date/LM?
