i'm stil UCR 1/17


i went UCR1 around 1/17 then UCR2 1/28, but nothing since then. I think im on the ding boat. hold fast though.


Nice to know that I'm not alone... and that Penn may get to me... eventually.

Wilson invite... it's not Levy, but hey, I'm not complaining (too much).

If you don't get a Wilson invite, does that mean there is no way you will get a $20,000 or more scholarship to Penn? Or is that just a specific merit scholarship, and unnamed merit awards can be in any amount?

Looks like they can do whatever they please for the Dean's Scholarship, though it reads as though it's on a one-year (at worst) or year-by-year (at best) basis. So that's fun. :|

I only have limited knowledge about Penn's scholarships, but AFAIK the Dean's will only go up to $20k a year, and they give it to you for all 3 years.

Good to know, thanks guys. I also noticed on the admitted students website, it says 80% of students receive some aid, and, more importantly, there is language there about sending them your scholarship offers from peer schools, and they seem pretty amenable to negotiation.

when schools say some form of aid though, that usually includes loans

^ Yeah I figured that, unfortunately :/. But the main point I wanted to make with that post is they definitely seem open to negotiating.

The LSAC data (which I believe includes the classes of 2012, 2013, and 2014) states that, of 803 students, 351 or 43.7% receive grants of any kind, and the majority of those students (278 or 79%) received grants for less than 1/2 tuition.

I think Penn will be more generous this year, though. I just can't see how they can afford not to be. NYU even invented a new full-tuition scholarship (it had previously been a named scholarship for LLM students) to give to people, presumably just to be more competitive this year.

Is it a call if admitted, email if WL/rejected? what's the deal?

And is it the same for international applicants?

Also, is UCR 2 a necessary condition for admission?

Sorry for the twenty questions...
