Penn is one of my spaghetti schools, so it's unlikely that I'll be enrolling with any of you, but I'm still excited to see how my cycle turns out. There's a lot to like about Penn; are there any Penn trolls (the good kind) in here? Penn seems like it gets forgotten in the T14 because it doesn't have a niche.
Spaghetti? LOL Please explain
Haha, I was JUST about to ask this!
It's when you're a splitter and apply to a bunch of reach schools in the hopes that one "sticks" and you get accepted. Large splitter cycles (like mine) can be hard to predict, so it's often advised that you apply MVPNCG with the idea that you should get at least one of them and be T14 secure. Derived from the expression "throw spaghetti at the wall and see what sticks." (Does anyone actually do that?)
Haha I have never heard that term before but I thought that's what it meant. Makes sense anyway. Pretty much the strategy I used too (I applied to every T14 except HYS and Cornell), though Penn has always been my favorite.
Also, if they start making calls at 11:30 like they did on Friday, only about another hour to go!
