Applied super early, ready to sit here and twiddle my fingers. One of the few schools I've visited outside of my hometown.

Do you/most students live on-campus or off? What neighborhood if off and what buildings are popular if on? Thanks!

The vast majority of people live off-campus. Some folks live on campus, but not many; so I couldn’t really say which buildings for on campus. The most popular neighborhoods are University City west to about 42nd, and Rittenhouse/Center-city. Some folks live south of the law school near Spruce Hill. University City is great if you want the college-town vibe, and Rittenhouse is great if you want the big-city vibe.

Are most people writing a "Why Penn" essay and submitting that separately? Or just using one of the optional prompts as a substitute for that

I used the core strengths. That's the advice I've seen on reddit.

Checking in! I know Penn doesn't start reviewing apps till next month, but when is their first wave of decisions likely to come out?

It was mid-December for me (current 2L) and I'm pretty sure that was one of the first.

Here's the admissions timeline graph for Penn for last year's cycle. It seems like they didn't start issuing decisions until December, with the bulk of them being between Dec-Feb. UVA, Harvard, and Mich seem to be making decisions a little bit earlier this cycle (I think) so hopefully it will be the same for Penn.

Thank you! Fingers crossed that we'll hear back earlier this cycle indeed. Would you mind sharing the source of this diagram? Would love to see the ones for other T14 schools as well!
