It does seem really weird because haven't you had a ton of success with full ride offers from other schools? Are there any named scholarships still going out? Maybe that's the reason.

Nope, nothing. I got invited to apply for the Wilson, but I explained to them I had some other stuff going on with school and would not be able to apply by the deadline and they said I would be considered for other merit offers.

Didn't you get a ruby? If so I don't feel bad for you no offense


None taken. I'm not upset I didn't get anything, just surprised that they shut me down for everything.

Has anyone who didn't apply for need-based aid heard about non-named scholarships?

Anyone know if it's possible to get a dean's scholarship in addition to a James Wilson?

Bummed I won't be able to make ASW, but I'll be visiting earlier that week. If any other TLS'ers are from out this way, I'll be attending the Los Angeles Admitted Students reception.

Maybe this has been answered (if so, sorry). What's the deal with regular merit aid at Penn? I did not get invited to apply for of their named schollies and I just got my aid notification email mentioning that I did not qualify for need-based (didn't expect to). However, there was no mention of any other aid at all (even saying $0 of merit aid), does this mean there is a small chance for merit aid at another time? Or am I faced with attending Penn at sticker?

Hey all, Mike Spivey leaked the 2014 USNWR 2015 rankings - Penn stands alone at #7.

Hoping that my registering to visit during ASW means they're recalculating my offer to a full ride due to demonstrated interest.

Well, a girl can dream, anyway.

Historically non-named merit aid has come after need-based aid notifications.

I got a hotel room a block or two from the one in which they had rooms reserved - not exactly a cheap weekend to be in Philly, apparently, but I got a better deal than what they were offering.
