Alright, I think we should be back to normal.

edit: for a while there, I thought I had merged every single topic from the first page of this forum into one giant megathread. whew

Got a fee waiver when I applied several days ago (although I had never had any correspondence with the school), so I had a feeling that something was coming in the mail. Sure enough, today I got a really nice invitation-to-apply letter (and fee waiver), as well as a good looking brochure. Great looking campus!

Complete as of 10/20 or so. Wrote a "Why Penn?"

At what point should applicants be worried about YP at Penn? I'm above the top quarter for LSAT and GPA, but not by a lot. Should I be worried?

With your numbers, you shouldn't be a victim of yield protection.

It's kind of hard to tell what's going on with Penn, but it seems to be around 175 that you need to be very concerned about YP.

Hey guys, hopefully some of you will be my future classmates. I've just found out about a situation that will require me to stay in Philadelphia for the next several years, so Penn is the only school I'm going to apply to. Do you think there's a chance I would get money for 175/3.54 or should I just go ED to rid myself of any yield protect and/or low GPA induced anxiety? It's Penn or bust for me now...

Uh, I would probably just apply ED if you don't care about money, but I think you could land a decent scholarship with a 175 and a 3.5. Who knows. Do some research on LSN with Penn and applicants with similar numbers.

It's so difficult to say with Penn though, LSN is just an enormous sea of yellow.

I don't get the whole YP scare. If Penn is your only option, then you should mention that in a ps or an addendum. Worst case scenario is you get waitlisted and send a loci to get off the waitlist with money. Am I missing something about YP that makes it such a threat? Just show some interest after you are waitlisted and you should be good. I have a friend that got serious money after doing that.

Yeah. But I can't imagine getting YP'ed from an entire tier (say MVP) and writing LOCI to all of them in the middle of work / school. It's easier if you definitely know which school you want to attend.

If I remember right, the non-ED people got decisions right before Xmas.
