Dude the worst possible outcome is that you'll get rejected. In that case I'm sure you'll get in somewhere else, and you can always reapply next cycle. It's not that big of a deal.

Wow. I feel so ridiculous. Sorry for the hysteria everyone - in my defense, I did convey the information I was given over the phone. Who knew I was being punk'd :)

Hey, man, you only go to LS once. If Penn is his dream, who are we to downplay the pain and disappointment of a potential rejection?

Plus, waiting a year would suck, and you have to go through the burden/expense of applying again (and perhaps taking the LSAT, too).

I feel slightly responsible for this one as well. I told ave that given this year's (somewhat overenrolled) class size, I wouldn't be surprised if next year's medians go up.

Unless you really believe Penn is worth sticker over MVD (which I personally don't), I'd say 170 is too high to justifiably ED. You'd be sacrificing up to a half-tuition scholly. With your numbers though, you should get at least one of MVPD anyway, so I wouldn't worry.
