Joint degree app plans change: tell the law school or not?

Postby accidentalhippy » Fri Feb 10, 2012 4:03 pm

Hi All,

So, I was planning to apply to the joint degree in City Planning at Penn, but decided to ride out my law school application cycle and then apply for the program if I get in and decided to go to Penn.

BUT on my Penn Law application, I indicated that I was applying to the joint degree. Should I email Penn Law about my change of plans? Or should I just wait to see where the dust settles?

I would contact them and let them know, as you're supposed to keep the schools up to date on anything in your application package. It shouldn't have an effect on your chances of admission, as those two programs are separate and the law school would consider you under the presumption that your application to the other school will in no way affect your decision to go to law school.
