Thanks for the info


Yup I did. I think it's just a generic email. Technically their deadline for applying for Fin Aid was yesterday, so I think they're just sending out a reminder to everyone. Note to all: Include your parent's info on the FAFSA! I already submitted mine, THEN saw the requirement to include parental info on the supplemental application for Penn State. Now I've got to wait for it to be processed to submit a corrected version....oh joy.


o i didnt do my parents info shoot

Rejected via e-mail. Really quick turn around (in review since last Friday)...I guess they knew for sure they didn't want me. :( Haha.

I got my waitlist email today. I also thought the tone of the email sounded promising. Penn St is one of my top schools and I am probably going to write a loci. How long should I wait to do this?

Has anyone negotiated a higher scholarship offer with Penn State?

Mind telling me a bit more? Like your numbers, scholarship offer, who you contacted and what you said? Did you have other offers to leverage with? You can PM me if you want, I'd really appreciate any information.

Actually I'm pretty sure that is the Fin Aid email they sent to us on Tuesday. You'll probably notice that you've also got a mailing date of 2/25 on there which is when our acceptance emails were sent.
