Idk clerk, I'm applying ED with above median GPA and median LSAT. We will see.
@Pleaseletmeinnow: good luck!!!
Applied ED with lsat at 75th and gpa right at 25th! According to last years lsd ED, I’d say I’m sitting at like 25% chance of acceptance so @pleaseletmeinnow you’re really close to like 90%
hi, 160/4.0 reverse splitter. would ED help
Probably still a stretch..
softs? URM?
If you do not care about money, I would say try it
Penn tends to be more splitter friendly
160 may be stretching it a bit, but you never know
I check Penn's status every day and nothing has changed but I will continue to do that until December 15th.
Who else are applying ED to Penn!
I am but def more of a borderline candidate with an LSAT just above the median and 3.57 gpa (stem) but we'll see what happens good luck to everyone
Does anyone know when Penn starts sending out ED decisions?
