You're looking good, just make sure to nail all your SATIIs (your SATI could be boosted too) and APs. Make sure you stay consistent with your ECs and don't procrastinate on the app!

Lookinng at your stats, I think you have a really good chance at getting into penn, at least, a much better chance than I do. Like Pennster said, nail you SAT IIs and APs. You would probably have a better chance if you didn't apply as a business major, but you'd still have a good chance nonetheless. Oh...yes..for some reason, universities like diversity, so emphasize your cultural background in your apps. And do NOT do what I did and write your application essay the day before the application's due.

Hey, till now the only admit letter I've got is from the U for which I wrote the essay on the night of the deadline (some weird question that didnt fit in with my standard essay that I sent to every other U).
The IRONY!!!!

(And yes, you have nice scores, ECs, grades and all, expect admission at Penn)

Don't take it personally, but creedthang I don't think you're going to get in..

By Creedthang (Creedthang) on Sunday, March 23, 2003 - 04:38 am: Edit

your basing that on my sat score which is about 50 points higher than the average student accepted at wharton.

By Andrew (Andrew) on Sunday, March 23, 2003 - 07:42 am: Edit

I think both of you have a good chance of getting in, it's just I don't that anyone can accurrately or definitively say either one of you is in.

Jlq3d3 - you have good stats, ECs, unique volunteeer work, etc. I think that you have a very good chance of getting into UPENN.

Creedthang - I think you have a good chance as well but I don't know about the international aspect, you might competing with a lot of people who are very well qualified for Wharton. As usual, I would say it's a toss-up for any school like Wharton. there's really nothing you could do to guarantee acceptance, it all depends on what they want each year and how many people have it in the applicant pool.

I hope this helps. good luck to both of you.
