I thought that Penn had a really quick turn-around on decisions after interviews (less than/around one week). It' been a week and a half since my interview and I'm getting nervous. I just want to know either way...

Do you think it would be bad to call/e-mail Corky and ask when I might expect to hear back? I just really want to know!! I mean, if they're going to waitlist or reject you, why not just TELL YOU! How does that hurt anything??

future penn dental students,
don't loose hope :)

I thought Penn dental was one of the best dental schools, it was hard to give up my spot at Penn. but, in the end, i know someone else will take my place and become a great dentist who treats his/her patient whole-heartedly to people of all backgrounds.

Good luck you guys, and those of you who get in.
have a wonderful 4 years at dental school.
i know you'll love it. best wishes!:oops:

yup, that was me, the old korean guy. i got my letter about 10 days after, agonized over penn & tufts, and then sent in my deposit to penn 10 days after that; it was due on 3/1.

let me know what happens!

i got waitlisted.... it's not good, but i thought worse was going to happen, so i feel kinda relieved. since i still have a hope, i'll just have to wait. i hope to see you again!! btw it was fun to talk to you on that day. i was the last person who walked to the school with you.

waitlisted - wow, you're right, don't know what to say - that's not great news, but not bad news either. I sure hope some spots open up for you so we can be in the same class! Do you have other acceptances to fall back on for now?

Did you deduce that, or did you get some sort of letter about being on the waitlist?
QUOTE]

i got a letter. it was a medium sized letter, so i guess that means waitlist. small letter=rejection, big letter=acceptance. lol

Congrats on BU! well, at least you've got somewhere to go in the fall. Boston was a tough town for me to turn down (Tufts); I've heard sooo many great things about it. I do hope Penn gives you a call..

I called them yesterday and they said that "no decision" has been made yet. You can call and ask them and they'll tell you if a decision has been made and something has been sent to you or if no decision has been made yet.

Hey Nunn,

I remember Corky saying that if u are in a time squeeze for deposits, u can call her and she will let you know the decision. esp when UBC's deposit is so much.

Hope that helps.

I called and let them know I'm facing a $750 WAITLIST deposit at Tufts (that sucks if you ask me) - they haven't made a decision about me yet, so they said they will decide and send out their decision by the end of the week. Now I'm really nervous. On the plus side I really like how they're vert accomodating to people in our situation.
