    Impressive list of achievments their, also congradulations on beating cancer! Based on that list, and not your GPA which is absent you have an good chance for Upenn.

    Thanks, GPA - 4.0 unweighted, 5.15 weighted. I am not happy with my ACT (I went without prep, since I had no time and little energy). I also did research work at cancer lab, very interested in bringing new treatments to market and available to patients. I am interested in LSM, which is very competitive. Will I ruin my chances at Upenn if I did apply to LSM and get rejected. I do have option of applying to School of Arts and Sciences or Business, if I do not get accepted in LSM.
