    He sounds like he has a good chance especially for summer session. He has the same class rank as my son who was accepted in January. Just an fyi, it doesn't matter if you apply Sept 1st, as long as you apply by November 30. Penn State has a modified rolling admission process. Many students who applied Sept 1st did not hear back until the end of January.
