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.


Ah. I ended up deciding on the downtown Sheraton. It's the same price as Club Quarters (the hotel Penn recommended) but I get a bunch of Starwood points. As an added bonus, it's slightly closer to the location of the Friday night social. I'm guessing everyone will be fairly spread out.

That's where i'll be as well - location looks good, Living Social was running a deal there if anyone is still looking (not sure if it's still there or not but worth checking...)

Oh okay, I was thinking along the lines of writing something on our name tags. But that's a much better idea! We can all just get way drunk as an indicator :)

How does Penn distribute merit scholarship info? Does it ever come in the initial acceptance packet, or do you have to wait and, if so, how long approximately?

I don't think anyone has received it with their initial acceptance packet. I was accepted in January and haven't received anything except an invitation to apply for the Toll program. I think the consensus is that they making their named scholarship decisions soon and then will start sending out the general scholarships.

For Toll at least, the e-mail said they would notify recipients in April, almost certainly sometime after April 8th. So I think the general scholarships may come out some time after that? Definitely doesn't sound good.

I just got my financial aid offer, and I'm pleasantly surprised. Mostly that I got an offer at all, but maybe it was my special circumstances? Hoping they'll give us some more updates on merit scholarships soon- I applied for Toll, and they're supposed to get back to us by tomorrow. Has anyone heard?

Pleasantly surprised is a great way to put it!

Has anyone gotten 60k+ in need based aid from Penn so far? You can PM me if you'd like. Just trying to gauge whether that's even a possibility.

Question for all. If we don't accept a loan right now, is there anyway we can accept it later on? Maybe during the semester? Im trying to limit myself to only taking out the subsidized loans and the stafford and not take out the alternative loans. Any idea, and is anyone trying to do the same?
