I mailed it. I'm in Philadelphia, so I'm sure the school will get it today or tomorrow.

I got an email from them yesterday saying I forgot my resume. I emailed it to them and within an hour they emailed me back. Everything is checked under the requirements list but it still says incomplete :(

At least they communicate, unlike NYU, whom I haven't heard a word from since I applied.

hey,

first of all, i haven't done penn ED yet. I am currently debating myself whether to apply ED or regular for penn.

i assume you guys are more aware of Penn's pros and cons than me, as you guys made this huge binding decision,
and so i'd like to ask a question and hope i get a response :D

sorry for hijacking, but can anyone tell me anything about penn's Intellectual Property law / Patent law and how strong they are?
I am interested in both corporate law and patent law, leaning more towards to the latter, and I am at reverse split for penn and berkeley.

Penn sounds better to me, but it is very hard for me to let berkeley go by doing binding decision for penn.

if anyone can give a tip, i'd appreciate it!

Thanks,

don't slap me hard, who knows, i might be your next year roommate :p

Penn is way better for corporate, Berk is way better for IP. Better make up yo mind brah!

Seriously though, even given the above, both are v good schools all around.

If you're a reverse splitter (high GPA/low LSAT), you're right up Berkeley's alley.

For what it's worth, I'm also interested in IP (with an engineering background) and I'm EDing Penn. In fact, I just sent the app an hour ago! Berkeley isn't in the cards for me cuz I'm a moderate splitter.

I guess I don't see where this would be a hard decision if you know what you want:

Penn:

Is better for corporate

Places better on the east coast

Places better overall (east coast stronger legal market than CA).

Berk:

Is better for IP

Places better in CA


Only you can figure out what your priorities are.

I called the Admissions office and they told me you can scan and email the ED contract to contactadmissions@law.upenn.edu

Much faster than snail mail!
