I thought you ended up choosing Chicago... guess I was wrong.


Nah, I never wanted to go to Chicago. I only applied because they gave me a fee waiver.

The day that I found out that going to Penn Law wasn't going to turn my life into one long episode of Sunny was the day that I realized what a huge mistake I made by applying ED.

Penn gets about 5700 applications a year, perhaps more for this year, and accepts about 16% of them (about 900). In each of the last three years, there were about 800 LSN applicants to Penn, netting about 200 acceptances each cycle. So the LSN data represents a disproportionately high rate of acceptance—maybe as high at 25% if the data is accurate.

So if, in any given cycle, the LSN applications represent about 14% of the total applications, and each year there are about 15 to 25 ED acceptances, even accounting for the slightly higher LSN acceptance rate, we can expect only between 3 and 5 ED offers to show up on LSN. Last year there were 5. So far this year there have been 8.

Does this mean anything?

I think LSN is simply becoming much more used/well-known, but I may be wrong.

Since I never even knew people confused the two until I came on TLS, I remain unconcerned.

Penn State is a good school in its own right though.

people do confuse them off of TLS. but it seems particularly douchey, knowing that, to pretend like you are unaware that people confuse them? I mean, either it's crazy elitism because penn isn't one of the upper ivies, or it's jealousy. or just douchebaggery.

From what I hear from the UPenn undergrad crowd, this will actually become the bane of our existence.

Something like that happens with Swarthmore College. All the locals elide the first R, notionally when talking about the town itself, but out of habit when talking about the school. Really undermines the prestige of the whole thing.

Just got the "your UPenn app is complete and has been placed in queue" email.

After reading this thread I'm pretty nervous that I didn't do enough writing. I had to write the GPA addendum and I opted for the diversity addendum because my PS alluded heavily to a certain influential book. I also tailored it for UPenn so i didn't want to repeat myself with the "why penn" essay. So two additional essays instead of 3.

Bad choice?


When did you send in your application? Mine isn't even complete yet and I'm starting to get concerned.


I got mine in on the 23rd of November. I think you should definintely submit yours before Christmas. After that most schools report getting a flood of apps.


I think that the other poster may mean that it's submitted but he hasn't received a complete notification from Penn.


Exactly! I submitted before Thanksgiving but haven't seen any movement at all on my status checker. The requirement list makes it look like I didn't send anything in yet-only when I double-checked, I had.
