Hi, so I really like Penn but my guidance counselor told me that my GPA is too low and that since Penn views your GPA as paramount, I shouldn't even bother applying. Based on the stats below, is this really true? I love Penn but don't want to waste eighty dollars if I don't have a realistic chance of being accepted.
