how does penn decide?

<p>do all the adcoms read your file and then vote on it? how exactly do they make a decision?</p>

<p>very carefully tre zonday</p>

<p>Phase 1: Get through your regional advisor.
Phase 2: Get through a unanimous committee vote (after thorough review)
Phase 3: Borderline files not accepted by committee reviewed by dean (who may automatically take any he finds worthy)
Phase 3.5: Each individual regional advisor gets a certain number of free picks (people who they like but didn't make it past committee)</p>
