I just applied to PSU main today,

Junior year GPA was 95.14 out of 100, top 15 in my class, possibly top 10 now. SAT - 640 verbal 680 math, National Honor Society, 3 year academic letter, baseball letterman, golf, basketball, student council co-president, office and library worker, PA resident, plan on majoring in nutrition or biology. Included personal statement about why i want to go to PSU for nutrition. 3 AP courses, recieved a 5 on my AP Psych test last year. AP Biology and AP Calculus senior year. 6 Honors courses. etc. Senior year schedule = English 12, AP Calc, AP Bio, Spanish IV, CP Government and Eco., Organic Chemistry, Physics,

What are my chances of getting accepted to U. Park and how long should i expect to have to wait until i hear back?

Thanks -

    right now you have a really good chance of getting in.
    you probably won't hear from penn state until october, my friend last year applied in early august and he heard in early october, but call them and ask.
    good luck

    im not really sure, have you checked out collegeboard.com? that might help some. i really dont think you should have anything to worry about. your resume looks better than mine and i got in. dont sweat it.

    You should be fine, you applied really early so thats an advantage because they are rolling admissions and your stats are much better than mine were and I got in just fine. If you want to get a better idea on where u stand check out this thread if you haven't already. I also didn't apply until October. You'll probably hear back around October, if not then early December.


    It's the thread for accepted freshman for this year, although the acceptance criteria will probably be more difficult due to the high number of incoming freshman this year.

    I dunno... 95.14? geeze you will need at least a 95.2 to be competitive at Penn State. 3 year academic letter? why not 4? you're going to need to explain that one... Apply to some safties.

    Is it too late for an out-of-state applicant to take the SAT's again in October? I heard that you have to have your application in very early for UP.
