By Dkm (Dkm) on Thursday, October 30, 2003 - 05:34 pm: Edit

if i were u fishbone..i would appply to Mcgill uni in canada..with ur stats u can get a freeride..penn is only good for business anyway..if ur planning on another major..penn is useless..

By Dkm (Dkm) on Friday, October 31, 2003 - 07:14 am: Edit

free ride= they uni pays everything for...its gonna be really difficult to get into warton..its like the best business skool there is....i doubt internatnatiol students can get in..a girl from my skool got in..she had 44/45 for the IB(pratically impossible to get) and 1580 sat, 800 writing, 780 math IIC and i think 800 on physics...anyway..u have to be the very best..the girl was on these boards..her name is something like penn...anyway..u can find her if u do a search for geneva..and email her or something...she was indain too, tats how i knew her.

By Dkm (Dkm) on Saturday, November 01, 2003 - 09:22 am: Edit

My friend is applying ED to Upenn and it's the only school she's interested in so I hope she gets in. What do you think of her stats?
SAT: 1350 (around there...1300 something)
ACT: 30
GPA: 4.0 (weighted)
ECs: yearbook, swimming, and she's being recruited for crew.
Crew is a huge hook, I think. Plus, she's applying to the school of nursing.
