Nope. On the ASW they said they had printing issues and would be out like this past week or something, but with all the weather issues I'm not surprised that they're not out yet.
I'm interested in this as well. I'm planning pursuing a career in public interest, but would love to combine a focus on entrepreneurship with PI/environmental law/human rights law. Obviously the entrepreneurship aspect makes Penn perfect, but I am worried the school is too big law focused for me. Anyone know about their support for PI, how well it does with placing grads into good PI positions?
I've been doing a little bit of digging on this. I don't remember the exact amount, but I think that pretty much everyone who wants summer funding gets it. And they do have a lot of students interested in biglaw, but I haven't got the sense yet that they don't support those who want PI. They have the Toll Center and a career advisor specifically devoted to PI interests.
