I don't see any reason you wouldn't get $$ somewhere. You applied at least, right?

And thanks so much justice, I keep pinching myself, I still can't believe it! I definitely do NOT like the cold, and I have never even seen snow before, which is another reason Chicago is scary (and why I ultimately want to move back to Miami)....so if I am gonna face 3 years of this "windy city" I wanna make sure it's worth it/I'm not miserable the whole time. I'll try leveraging with Penn, I've been hearing a lot lately that they hate losing kids to Chicago.
Chicago is cold and windy. Like my grandmother once couldn't move because the wind was too strong windy. If you're not a fan of cold, or want less cold, I'd say come to Penn.
Last I checked (read: last year) Philly had winter too.
Mid-Atlantic cold does not even begin to compare to Midwestern cold. You're talking a good 7-10 degrees colder (plus wind chill) in Chicagoland. Remember, this winter was unusually mild.
That said, I would say that unless Penn offers you substantially more money (ie, ~1/2 tuition or greater) you should probably suck it up and take Chicago. If it does come down to a push, however, pick on the basis of which region you would prefer as a "fallback" (as you probably are aware, neither school is a direct pipeline into the Southeast).
