<p>Sorry if I got wordy and don't ******** me, dont mind some honesty!</p>

<p>Also let me know if there is anything I can do besides writing some good essays to strengthen my app.</p>

<p>@OP: Profile looks pretty good. EC's look strong. Only thing I'd say is not to include "stock trading" unless you worked this as a profession over the summers or something. A lot people try to use that and "owning a small business" towards getting into Penn. And quite honestly, it doesn't do much unless the business/stock profile is absolutely outstanding. As in, your profile is of similar strength to day-time traders or even MBA graduate student traders. Penn/Wharton stresses that you need no business experience to be accepted.</p>
