Do you we know the average amount a person gets in $$ who is 25th-median LSAT and 75th GPA ?


Sry, but you won't be getting anything in merit aid.


ehhhhhhh I wouldn't be so sure. I'm 25th percentile GPA and 50th LSAT and they threw me $30k in merit.

Same here. Still waiting on merit. But I am also waiting to hear on Toll, so maybe they are waiting...

Have any ED people gotten merit money?
I realize it's a super long-shot for me, but I've heard of them offering at least a little merit-based aid to ED people in the past. Just wondering if they have/will this year.

Hope springs eternal, right?


FWIW: ED Round 1 acceptance.
LSAT < 50%
GPA > 75%

There are 230+ people in Penn 2020 FB group already
And class of 2019 is about 240+ students
Not sure how many people in FB group will actually attend, but it looks like the chance for off wl will be super small :(

Well they average a yield somewhere between 22-24% so they will likely make a few waitlist offers. Coupled with Spivey's prediction that it'll be a wild waitlist summer, this gives me a small glimmer of hope.

The FB groups from 2019 and 2018 each have 500+ members. Do with that what you will

Copy from the Penn WL thread: Nearly everyone on LSN this cycle with my GPA and LSAT range seem to on Penn's WL (whereas acceptance rates are much higher with the same GPA and a lower LSAT). The YP is insanely strong in this one.

Please love me UPenn.

The groups are that large because current students join during the summer to sell textbooks, furniture, etc.

I haven't heard of the prediction before, but that's a good sign.
Good luck to both of us!

It doesn't say that you're under review by committee?

Oh, sorry, I confused Penn's with Chicago's... My Penn status says "Under Committee Review" as of 3/29! But I guess this is UR1, since I didn't notice any movement before ...

Waitlisted via email. Timestamp 5:19 EST. Not surprised but also not stoked.

Went complete 2/11, last UR movement was 4/5. 168 LSAT, 3.78 GPA, URM.

Also waitlisted, last movement was 4/7. Sad but hopeful for my chances on the waitlist!
