Need to stay in the top half of the class.
I also live in NJ and the status checker said they mailed me my packet on the 26th.

Got the acceptance email/status checker 1/22; They mailed out the scholarship packet on 1/26 and I received it today. So a little over a week to get from University Park to South Jersey.

Thanks! That's when I got the email too ad=nd in my status checker it says that something was mailed out 1/26 but it doesn't have a description of what it is. Hopefully I'll get something today or tomorrow!

Congrats, by the way :)

Just got in via email. It says they will send out scholarship info in January (it's now February). I guess I'll wait and see how much they give me.

Edit: Also, status checker hasn't changed. Weird.

Hey everyone,

I finally got my acceptance packet today as well (accepted on 1/22 with 160, 3.85) and was offered the Dean's Scholarship which is $60,000 total (so 20k a year).
Pretty exciting stuff that makes me consider Penn State even more.

Was your scholarship money awarded in your mailed packet? I'm curious to know mine, but I don't want to harass the poor admissions people.

does it place well in say judicial internship type things? what's special about penn state?


same as my post. its a great undergraduate school but it doesnt offer anything special for law graduates... PSU's name is not even comparable to similarly ranked schools like temple, pitt, nova (in the region)... However, if you wanna get drunk and party for three years, PSU wins hands down!
