I am a double legacy and my uncle wrote me a letter or recommendation but I don't know if that is enough. He is a tenured professor. I think I wrote some pretty good essays. I applied ED and wouldn't mind a few responses to comfort me until December 15th. Thanks

Well, you're pretty weak for Penn both academically and extracurricularly. Nothing really STANDS out in your grades/scores and your ECs seem pretty thing (any awards/positions?). The only way I could see you being admitted would be if your essays and recs are REALLY good. I dunno, it's not looking too good right now...

Question: I've just been interested in Penn lately. We have so many students applying ED with legacies. I'm just wondering, supposing an ED legacy candidate with good essay/recs applies. What would their GPA/SAT #'s have to be?
