What do you think it is?
I wouldn't put much stock in yield protect at Penn with numbers like that. I was accepted straight up last cycle with better numbers and didn't even bother to write the then-optional Why Penn essay that most people wrote.
I think the issue is more that schools are going to be holding/waitlisting a greater percentage of applicants this cycle because applications are expected to be at an all time high. I have also heard (from a friend who works in the admissions office here at Penn) that, so far anyway, they've been looking for diversity first and will turn to numbers later when they have a better idea of what all the applicants look like. Hence all the holding/waitlisting.
