Good luck to everyone! I know Penn may not be a great school to many of you but this was one of my first choices. It's been such a rough application process for me, recently culminating in getting WL to Notre Dame. At that point I gave up on getting in anywhere in the T14, and now I can finally relax.


this makes me feel hopeful. and congrats!

Who doesn't think Penn is a great school? Clear top 8 in my opinion.

I applied more than a week before you both and I just went complete a few days ago, so I wouldn't worry yet.

Agreed, I feel it's def got an advantage over VP ITE because of the class size and it's a better school than DN.

Dear UPenn,

I know that I've always been a long shot to you, what with my 25% numbers and all. I've been complete since 01/05/10, UCR a month later. So please, if you're going to reject me, do it this upcoming week. I feel this unreasonable hope in your silence, and honestly, if that's the way its going to be, I would appreciate the prompt notification, so we can both move on with our lives. Thanks.

Yours Truly,

Wingdw

Can't make ASW so I took a tour this week. Met with Dean Post too. She said Scholarships should start to come out early March and go all the way till May. HTH

Last year the major set of scholarship awards (Levy, Wilson, Silverman-Rodin) came out around March 10th or so. We had to do the essay about 4 weeks before that. There was also a second round of the scholarships later on for those who were admitted later, but I think it was smaller. There's a thread from last year on it (Levy scholarship is in the thread title).

Sorry to post this here and in the "IN at Penn" thread. But, I submitted my FAFSA already and I'm working on my NeedAccess Form now. Do we need to send actual copies of our (our parents) 2009 income tax forms to the Penn financial aid office by March 1st? An answer to this question would be GREATLY appreciated!

Una pregunta...

I believe Dean Post said that I should receive an email after the acceptance phone call. I received the call on Friday, but still no email. Can anyone confirm that I should have received an email by now? I want to let them know if they have my email address wrong or something.

So, I was 'dinged,' as the kids say, on January 12th, via status checker. I wasn't particularly surprised.

This morning, I received a nice letter from Penn letting me know something like "Your many accomplishments and experiences are sure to lead you to success in life - but not here." Thanks for the reminder, Penn.

I was accepted on a Thursday via phone call and received my email on a Friday. If you were accepted Friday then you should expect the email today or tomorrow. It's pretty much just a link to the Admitted Site. The real stuff comes a week or two later in the portfolio. Congrats!

I got the phone call on Friday and the email a few hours later. Did you check your junk mail? Don't fret too much about it, you're probably already in.

If I was UR 2/4 and then never again, does that mean they took one look at my application and decided to autoreject?

What's the consensus?
