No offense, but why do you care? You are already in a bunch of great schools. Why does Penn owe you an explanation? They rejected you because with your numbers and being an URM you clearly were going to get into a better school. That's it. You didn't get in, move on.

If you're wanting to do this because you plan to re-apply in a later cycle and are looking for tips on how to strengthen your application, then it might be acceptable. If you're only being neurotic, don't do it.

Do schools actually respond to that if its for the first reason?

do it. of the t14, penn needs humble pie the most. the other t14s already know why they're great; they don't need to be reminded constantly with a "why ___" statement.

The dean of UChi's law school basically told me the same thing. But UChi has the biggest inferiority complex of any law school in the country, so I wouldn't put too much stock in it.

yeah like, when asked about the one student who failed the bar, he responded that they probably only failed because their answers were too intellectual and they thought to much about the questions. LoL.
