<p>What's my %?</p>

<p>You have a really good shot. Good test scores, demanding curriculum, decent ecs and and awards and an area of the US where penn gets little apps.</p>

<p>are you ED? if so, I'd say youd get in. if not, then still a good chance.</p>

<p>Yeah, ED. Man I hope so, my life is dependent on my acceptance :P</p>

<p>It's determine whehter I'm a top level manager or a gym teacher.</p>

<p>BTW applying to M&T, SEAS if that helps. I heard SEAS has a higher % than Wharton and the college?</p>
