I'm so excited to be attending in the fall! Do we know when the admitted students website goes online? (Or is it already?)

Congrats to all those that received an acceptance on Friday! I am looking forward to meeting all of you at ASW. And I second whuntington3: I can't wait to be in Philly next fall.

Am I the only one who feels like it's just a little bit cool that we are each one of maybe 10 total people currently admitted to Penn?

I was in Saint Paul for four years...I'm just glad not to be in the midwest anymore :D . Will other ED folks be going to ASW? I'm already excited and it's three months away.

yes definitely... have you received any information? I haven't gotten anything since the phone call =/

I'll probably be driving out a day or two early to do some apartment hunting while I'm there.

First official post and I'm really happy to be making it in this thread! Totally looking forward to meeting you all in Philadelphia. Congratulations to all on your tremendous accomplishment! I would like to propose a motto for our class in the upcoming journey:

"We must, indeed, all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately." - Benjamin Franklin

Penn's founder. Way cooler than Thomas Jefferson, if you ask me.

I'm visiting Philly/Penn next week, and if they haven't given us more info by then, I'll ask them what the deal is.

This is SO collegial.

I'd love to take credit for that quote, but it was actually Pizzaburger. Definitely in the spirit of Penn's focus on collegiality and cooperation.

This is quickly turning into one of the most collegial threads on TLS. Thank you, Ben Franklin.

I've been fortunate enough to be accepted, and I want to congratulate everybody and say hello! So excited to be attending Penn Law! How did everyone else go about withdrawing their applications from other schools (email, phone)? I assume it is supposed to be done immediately, like within 24 hrs?

So stoked on living in Philly the next 3 years. Planning on cruising out for the New Student shin dig so it will be good to see a few of you out there!

I'm sure you already figured this out from the e-mail they just sent out but it is suppose to be sent out via e-mail next week!

Congrats all. Stoked to be apart of the class of 2016

Second this. Has anyone made a FB group for our class?

I BCCed all the schools I applied to and sent them a short email asking to be withdrawn from their applicant pool. It seemed nicer than putting them all in the "To" field, but I still got to be lazy.

I think there is a Penn Post-Acceptance Committee or something like that which puts together an official Class of 2016 facebook group for us (based on what I see from the previous years). I don't think there is anything to stop you from making your own group, per se, but it might be better just to wait. Though I am just as eager... :D


Any thoughts on whether ED people have a shot in hell at merit/financial aid?

Good to know. I really just want that packet to be sent now. Don't know if I can wait until January :shock: !!! As for aid, I am not counting on any Merit based but who knows maybe they'll give me the "I don't want to live off of Ramen Noodles Scholarship". Even need based is up in the air since they consider your parents financial situation for everyone under the age of 30....

I have limited information on this, so I would be speculating wildly if I tried to give a definitive answer. I do know that a few people have received aid in the past (don't know whether it was merit or need based), but I don't think it is common. Signing that ED contract removed most of the incentive for them to offer merit aid. I know nothing about need based aid.

That all sounds reasonable, and obviously I (and I assume most everyone who did ED) entered into it knowing that merit aid would be highly unlikely (plus, no T-14 is giving a 165 merit aid anyways). But some financial aid would be soooo appreciated.


Also looking forward to finding the big packet in the mail come January.
