There's a big difference between a Wharton MBA and a UPenn undergrad degree done in Wharton.
This is so wrong it makes me sick to my stomach. The Wharton MBA program won't take anyone who went to Wharton undergrad, as a rule, because 1. it's basically the EXACT same material but condensed and 2. the admissions committee believes that one with an undergrad degree from Wharton has absolutely no need or reason to get a masters, and if they do, then the school has failed them.
No, UPenn law will not care that you were in Wharton undergrad.
Now THIS is true. They'll care about as much as admissions committees would care if someone got a liberal arts degree from Princeton - as in, that's great for you, and helps give an idea of the kind of candidate you are, but a 3.13 from Wharton still counts less than a 3.14 from Kutztown. It's not because they're ignorant, it's just all about numbers, and you can't put an asterisk next to the average gpa of the school and say "well, the lower GPAs went to HARD schools". The other part of that comment, Penn caring about Penn, I can speak from personal experience that they DON'T CARE AT ALL. In fact, if you do really want to go to Penn Law, I'd highly recommend a pretty intense LOCI proving that you want to go to Penn Law on its own merits and not just because it's your alma mater. I got waitlisted there with a Penn undergrad degree, a 3.76, and a 174, primarily because I didn't include such a letter.
Good luck, though - If you're really interested in sports and entertainment with a 3.13 I'd recommend targeting UCLA and USC with a good LSAT score, those will give you better contacts. If you get an absurd score you could also target Columbia and nyu. Vandy is the only other school with specific Entertainment/Sports law contacts and programs, but you shouldn't expect to make any contacts or get much help from your professors if you go to school any place other than new york, LA, or Nashville. Penn would help you with that only in the sense that its strength is corporate law, which is the most common route one must travail to get into entertainment law down the road. Good luck!
Admissions committees will wonder why you did "notoriously" shitty in a "notoriously" easy undergrad major. You can study [strike]business[/strike] law at any school in the country and at the end of the day its still just [strike]business[/strike] law.
that revision makes as much sense as the original. Perhaps Cooley opened a business school and sent a troll to disparage Wharton?
