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......
I'm in that range too, but FYI I believe those who are on the lower gpa side were ED. I saw those marks first appear when Penn was doing ED acceptances. Which means for RD candidates they are shooting for gpa 3.8 and up.
You can't read too much into the cycle this early. The people they've taken have been their first pass through the earliest group of apps. Look at past years and Penn takes plenty of candidates in the 3.6+/170+ range.
