Please let me in this week!
Yes, I caught the Penn bug recently too... I wish I had fallen in love with Penn a few months earlier and ED'ed there.. I mean - how amazing to have Penn AND Wharton on your resume after doing the business & public policy certificate???
Penn - ZOMG!@!! I LOVE YOU!!!
(clearing throat) Okay, sorry Penn, was that weird to you? I know.. way too fast..
On this note, what is the consensus on those informal "I will attend if admitted" commitments? This is the case with me at Penn, and I am partially inclined to write that, but I also feel like since it's informal they might not give it much credence. I also worry that it could sound desperate/unprofessional. Also, I sort of indirectly indicated it in prior correspondence by referencing a personal reason for me to prefer Penn over other top schools to which I have already been admitted.
But with all of that being said, if Penn pays close attention to yield like people say they do, I could see it being a positive addition to my application... Any thoughts on these types of letters generally and more specifically whether I should write one?
