Anyone get an interview at UPenn yet?

Postby Sara83 » Tue Feb 07, 2006 8:13 pm

I am on their "waiting" list for an interview, was wondering if any of you had the chance to interview there yet? If so (and you don't mind) could you please provide me with some stats?

Mine are:
P: 8
V: 9
B: 10
GPA: 3.85
EC: treasurer of pre-med group, volunteer at a retirement home (12 hrs/week), habitat for humanity, research resulting in a defence of a thesis, tutor, horseback riding instructor/exerciser.

When I check my status on their website, I get the "waiting" info also....what I'm wondering is if they have even sent any rejections or if everyone is just put into this category?? I have but a snowflake's chance in hell to get in there and I've very surprised to not have received my rejection letter yet.

Has anyone been rejected yet from UPENN?

I concur! I don't think that I actually have a chance to get in, just curious.

U Penn is a tough one. If you ppl are getting interviews now it is probably for waitlist spots. I would say call them and ask. Someone told me that some schools make a note everytime you call to check on their file. This gives an impression that you are still interested, as many candidates with multiple inteviews have to decide.
