Write the 5 year plan essay with an emphasis on how you will tie your previous work experience to your Penn Law education and your work as an attorney. Penn is rare among the T-14 in that they actually prefer applicants who already have some idea as to what they would like to do. However, with your numbers it is still a long shot since you would hurt one median and not help the other.
