Splitter joy--3.6, 171. ED to Penn?

Postby baconpuffs » Tue Jun 28, 2011 6:09 pm

My plan is to blanket the T14 from CCN down, but I love Penn. Wondering if ED makes sense with these numbers. As an added bonus, I feel that I can pull the GPA up to roughly a 3.7 after the fall semester (which is my last). Advice, friends?

Those numbers should get you into Penn without much trouble if you ED. You also have a shot regular decision but that's a bit dicey. Main problem with ED is that you are almost surely sacrificing any merit aid. If you can actually get your GPA up to a 3.7 (not sure if that's really possible) then you should just apply RD.

Truth. Blanket the t14 from CCN down, ED to Penn anyway if you REALLY want to go there.

I wouldn't ED because you could be looking at 50k or so from Duke or Michigan.

You'd be giving up money from lower-ranked T14s, but if you really want it, do it and I'd say you're in.
