Went ahead and wrote a Why Penn essay and sent it in. We will see what the outcome is soon enough, I guess!

Just received my acceptance mailing today (accepted on 1/10). Did anyone get scholly information in theirs (outside of the application process and that merit awards are rolling beginning in January)?

Was it the basic acceptance letter or the acceptance packet?

Well then here is to hoping that mine is waiting in my mailbox when I get home! I'm out in Utah so I may have to wait. I'm just hoping it trumps the packets I've received from previous schools because we all know the quality of the packet is indicative of the quality of the school.

I've been accepted to Penn and while it wasn't originally one of my top choices, after reviewing more of the courses and opportunities, I realize that it would be a really good fit for me. However, I'm not expecting to be invited to apply for the merit scholarships (I'm 169/4.14/non-URM), and attending at sticker seems silly when I have a $90,000 merit offer from UVA and a $67,500 offer from Michigan (3 year totals) which are peer schools. Does anyone know if Penn will consider matching scholarships?

Yes, they do non-named merit schollies. However they are traditionally very stingy.

Mine was decision letter and packet, although I was admitted last Thursday, so that explains why both came together. Also, the admission packet is a beast, going to tackle it tonight, but it looks very informative! I guess I'll just have to wait on the merit-scholly info haha.

I'M IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

TEARS OF JOY!

Dean Post just called me. Told me I had the best personal statement that she's read yet. I proceeded to ramble on incoherently. This is insane. I was ED2, so cycle complete!

I can't believe this guys. I owe this to TLS.

Too many to name. It's sorted with dividers that have info on course offerings, dual degree programs, Philly, Housing, Financial Aid, etc. Comparable to Vandy if you've heard of what their Black Box entails.

Got the beast of an admissions packet today. I will also be tackling it later haha. It's cool that they put a course catalog in it with nice long descriptions.

I don't see one...

Also, got mine today all the way down in Florida, accepted on the 10th. Usually takes forever for stuff to get here, FWIW.
