Upenn accepts 40% of legacy students and I'm sure you're as qualified as any of them if not much more. I'd be VERY surprised if you didn't make it in.

I hope so but I'm only a legacy because my grandmother went to Penn for 2 years of graduate school to earn some sort of nursing certificate. She died shortly thereafter and never donated money to Penn or anything does this make me not as much of a legacy as a direct child of alumni? thanks for your help.

I thought that only parents count for legacy, though I could be wrong. Even if that's the case, you still have a great record, and a good chance.
