I'd be interested in finding out if this is actually true, because my high school is ballin'. (but I was in remedial English)
That's really interesting and, if true, was to my advantage - I went to a top public school in the Philly area.
And on another note - I think these rejections/deferrals are evidence of Penn's clear desire to move up in the rankings.
I went to a well-known Philly-area public school, too, but I don't know how that'd be a better indicator than your PS. Seems weird.
