In fact, out of the 38 admits, there are exactly ZERO with a GPA between 3.6 and 3.8. This troubles me as I fall into this range......
People round to preserve anonymity. There are two 3.8s... those could easily be 3.75-3.79s.
Also, Penn is known for doing weird things with admissions, but I doubt they decided to just cast aside hundreds of people within their 25-50% for GPA.
Anyway, I'm cautiously optimistic. I really love Penn and it's one of the few schools that could sway me from NYU/Berkeley. It would be nice to go to school in a city and so close to family, and would be such an awesome Christmas present!
