As a philly resident who was accepted on 2/23 . . . . should I expect my acceptance letter (and scholarship info!) in the mail this afternoon when I get home?

Only if I, another Philly resident, can expect the same thing.

Someone else should call and ask again today. I have called too much for these admissions folks not to be annoyed :-\



I didn't get my scholarship info with the acceptance letter, I received the info (by email then by letter) about 2-3 weeks after I got in.

does anyone have recommendations on where to live? I hear that it's expensive near the school and less so as you move further away, but I honestly have zero knowledge of the Philly area

I live in King of Prussia, with a roommate; $500 per month covers everything except groceries.

15 minute drive to the school.

Villanova, Rosemont, Ardmore, Philly are going to be the most expensive. You can find a place in Havertown or Drexel Hill for considerably cheaper and not be too far away. There are a ton of backroads to get to Nova that allow you to miss rush hour traffic too.

I think you guys all missed the sarcasm in jlnoa's post too. Or maybe he's still bitter from getting owned by beach_terror in pifp pong.

+1 as a UG. I love the King of Prussia area, and regardless of where I go to school around Philly, I'll probably stay put and commute. I pay $750 a month rent, but I don't have a roommate so its kind of pricey.

I understand, plus there's probably some money in this one for you.
