Penn says that they review each and every application "holistically". While there is some truth to that, I know that some parts of the application are more important than others. My question is which are the most important parts? Obviously high school transcript is at the top of the list, but other than that I really have no idea. Help me out:
letters of recommendation
quality of character
If you had to make a pie chart in which a certain percentage is given to each category, what would it look like?
My guess is something like this:
HS transcript: 35%
standardized tests 15%
letters of rec 10%
quality of character 10%
I'm probably wrong. Correct me.
EDIT: Sorry I meant to post this in the Penn subforum. I'll go do that now. Feel free to delete this.
