Yes, me! I wonder how many people they invite to apply?

Good question, says there are 10-12 spots available. I imagine it's somewhat competitive, but it only requires an essay -- no interview, etc. So who knows? Just happy to have the opportunity :D

Congrats to all the scholarship invites! Does anyone know if they are all sent out this week or (for those not accepted yet) do they continue sending invites out?

Not as cool as a scholarship invite, BUUUTTTT just went under review today. Any idea how long before I should expect a decision?

They ask if you don't wish to be considered that you let them know ASAP. So I imagine more would go out if some people declined to apply for them. I'm not sure if they do another wave. Levy apps are due by Feb. 10th, so that'd be pretty short notice to find out next week.

GPA >3.8 and you're almost definitely in ED, probably need >3.9 for RD. Penn's really selective with GPA's for people below their LSAT median (170).


depressssssssing, but still in it to win it!

Congrats to all the scholarship invites! My second UCR was 12/5 (submitted middle of October) and nothing since. Above both 75ths, with Penn-specific information in my PS. Beginning to think my file got dropped behind a file cabinet somewhere and lost forever.
