No individualized scholarship info included (at least not in mine - ED/171/3.2x), but there is a financial aid booklet that states that merit-based scholarship nominations will begin on a rolling basis in Jan and need-based awards will begin on a rolling basis in March.

Yep, I got mine yesterday. I haven't been able to look through it all yet but it is a pretty large package of materials. No scholly info though :(

Can someone who's got their portfolio tell me what date orientation/classes start?

I can't find a 2014-2015 academic calendar anywhere, but I imagine they included one in the info packet.

Will do.

Also, if there's anything else anyone thinks I should put up let me know, I'm international so I don't think my portfolio will arrive for at least another week.

Finally got my packet! Wow, that thing is heavy but very well organized with the divided binder. Very neat!

I believe that there is an Office of Off-Campus Services which has a roommate matching service. Alternatively, you can join the Facebook group and try to reach out to people that way.

Yes. It's also the same time as the NYU ASW that I had planned on attending. Very bummed :(

So if I'm 90 minutes from Penn's campus, should I start to be concerned that I haven't gotten my portfolio yet? Trying to figure out if I should call later this week, or wait a little longer.

When were you admitted? Mine just arrived 12 days after being admitted, and I'm in NYC

Also...best packet so far I'd say!!!

It's been about 2 weeks for me so far. I'll hold out til the end of the week I guess, and if it still hasn't come I'll check into in. My mail is not the most...reliable.

Just to verify, if you log into status checker, it does say that they shipped the packet right?

Congrats to recent admits! Where is everybody leaning on in terms of housing? I was considering UC before but now I am thinking CC might be better.

Bumping this.

Also, what are you guys thinking for housing? Park Towne Place and 2400 Chestnut seem like the cheapest options. Any others?
