how hard is it to get into Upenn

Postby justwondering123 » Mon May 02, 2011 2:41 pm

what do they expect out of their candidates i.e.
extra circulars
gpa
lsat
letters of recc

and i was wondering if any past or current students could tell me about their experiences there?

That is the median so you better have a higher GPA.

Which means its easy to get in if you have a 172/3.9 and that its very hard to get in if you have a 166 and a 3.4.

A bit easier than it is to get into Harvard, but a bit harder than it is to get into Cornell

I think I've got some extra circulars in my recycling bin if OP needs them. :P

Roughly on par with getting into the rest of 7-14. Harder than Cornell.

Seriously OP, read the stickied threads at the top of each sub-forum. You'll learn 90% of what you need to know, then ask questions.
Lurking is healthy.

Also, learn how to spell.

He made the same thread asking about Northwestern

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=154528&p=4357137#p4357137

Yes, he even spelled "extracurriculars" wrong in the old thread.
