Is there still anyone who hasn't gotten any financial aid emails, not even the one with the login info?

Same as all other schools, just email the admissions email saying you would like to withdraw and they'll do it for you immediately.

I just got a missed call from a Philly #. Do any of you accepted folks remember what # called you for acceptance? I'm on my phone and can't scroll thru this thread, sorry if this has been asked already.

No voicemail, so probably overthinking this.

I haven't gotten any e-mails from Financial aid. No login info, no merit, no need-based. nothing. I was accepted like 2 months ago....I guess I should probably call.

Just talked to Kate (the Penn finaid lady) on the phone and she just moved me several spots ahead for finaid and scholly evaluations.

Been the total opposite for me. When something like this happens I think it's important to also look in the mirror. I am not being rude or anything...

you mean look in the mirror, and see if you're visibly gay/minority/disabled or some other thing that might cause people to look down on you? :^)

i mean, you seemed to be indicating that the poster was being rude or a jerk, causing adminds to be rude or a jerk back. i was suggesting perhaps they don't like the poster for some other reason unrelated to his behavior, such as his appearance.

You seemed to be indicating that Penn fosters a discriminatory environment. I was more agreeing with the first part of ksimon's post, anyway (I had an extremely positive experience at the ASW).

haha no. I'm a minority. They've gone above and beyond to help me with the smallest of things.
