Penn State 2011 Applicants

Postby Rgaliana » Mon Nov 15, 2010 8:51 pm

I couldn't find if a thread was started on PSU.

Who's in?

Went complete 11/11/10. Hoping to hear soon. This is one of my top 5 choices if I can get a decent scholarship. 163/3.7.

I went complete on 11/11 as well.. I'm not holding out for a decision soon though, it seems as though they might take their time.

Did you do the optional "Why PSU?" essay?

yea i did. as a general rule of thumb it never hurts to do every optional part of the app. it could make the difference.

Did your status checker go to "in review" or something like that before you made a decision? How did they let you know you were accepted? Thanks

Applied 11/15. Hoping to go complete when the rest of my LOR's are uploaded within a week. Any idea how long decisions take to make after you go complete?

I'm in the same boat. Under review since 10/25. Makes me nervous that others are in at the same time. Possibly a ding? It was a "safety" so I hope not.

Hey everyone, current Penn State 1L here. I have been taking questions on this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=130990

So let me know if you have any.
I was complete and accepted after about a week and a half last year (160/3.85) and I got a nice scholarship.
Good luck to everyone and I hope to see you next fall!

I applied at the beginning of November and went complete on 11/11. I wasn't really sure which campus to apply to. I went with Carlisle because I figure I could do without all the distractions of the undergrads for my first year. From all I read, it is relatively easy to switch between campuses for 2L and 3L years, so I don't think I'll miss out on any opportunities.

Did anybody get accepted yet for the Carlisle campus?

I applied to UP and if I end up going to Penn State that will be the campus that I am at.

Where ya'll applying (campus wise)?

Applied 11/11. Complete 11/12. Under review TODAY! :shock:

My college roommate recommended I apply to Carlisle because that's where she is (1L), but I need a bigger campus, so UP is where I applied.
