Haha, I think I'll stick to my Columbia acceptance ;). But Penn is still a good choice, even though the Sandusky scandal kind of puts it in a bad light.

@Everyone else:
Will be withdrawing from the waitlist soon. I hope that lessens the competition.


Yeah, I wish the law campus was in Happy Valley, but west Philly isn't bad :D

Putting a law school in Happy Valley would probably overload the universe's irony generator.

I was :). It was an indirect joke between me and DonnaDraper.

But it seems confusing Penn for Penn State is common enough that Penn feels the need to address it in the FAQ.

"'Is Penn a state university?"

"No. The University of Pennsylvania is a private Ivy League institution with no connection to Pennsylvania State University."

They wouldn't match any of my scholly offers despite basically telling them I'd enroll immediately. (I currently live 15 mins away!) So sadly, I've withdraw. Good luck to everyone still waiting!

I haven't looked at this thread much in a bit. Have they made any WL movement?
