i'm confused, how can you be a first-generation college student if your dad went to graduate school?

See, that's where Im not exactly sure. I am a first generation undergraduate student. My dad did not go to undergraduate school, just grad school. My mom did not graduate high school.

I applied to Wharton ED too, and I actually have very similar stats - 1480 SAT, a bunch of AP courses, 3.9 GPA, 2 or 3 in class of 90, lots of music EC's (I play violin). Sounds like you are qualified to get in, but your EC activities are relatively generic so your application may not really stand out (not to say that mine will stand out any more than yours). There are so many people that are overqualified to get in that it's really tough to say how they will choose. Mostly a crapshoot these days, so it's silly to stress about it too much.

Anyway, good luck though.

Thanks, but I have a lot of leadership in those EC's, will that help?
Good Luck to you too.

Yeah, your leadership positions will certainly help - after all, Wharton is looking to train future leaders. My advice would be to just forget about it until Dec. 12. You've already applied, they've probably already read your application and made a decision, so just relax while you can and you'll find out soon enough (my opinions are just as good as yours as to whether you will get in or not).

From what I've heard, Wharton looks in particular, for students with strong quantitative abilities. Whith this in mind, could anyone shed any light onto the debate of Math IC vs. IIC for Wharton, and what the ballpark scores are. Is a 700 Math IIC equivalent to a a 700 Math IC or higher? Thanks.
I also applied Wharton ED.
