<p>I don't believe the figure has been released on the internet but does anyone have an idea as to how many people apply to huntsman every year? I would also like to know my chances as well. I have a very strong foreign language background: by the time i graduate I'll have taken 4 years of Spanish in high school (including AP Spanish), 2 years of French (French I + French III--skipped French II), and 2 years of Latin. I have won best Latin student and ranked nationally for all three languages' national tests. I have all A's in my foreign language classes. My math grades are a little iffy, though. I have of course taken the most challenging classes offered, but I have done somewhat mediocre when it comes to Wharton or Huntsman standards. I have A-'s since 9th grade up 'til my junior year now. Next year I will be taking BC Calc, and hopefully I will pull off at least an A- in that.</p>

<p>I have taken humanitarian trips around the world, and I also have had the opportunity to be a club leader in certain internationally based clubs in my school.</p>

<p>So far, I have taken the SAT once, and my overall score was a 2200 and my math score was a 740. I plan to take it again and do better on the math section.</p>

<p>I will take the SAT IIs in Math II and Spanish next year--hopefully scoring above a 700 in both.</p>

<p>So far... how are my chances? I am planning to apply ED by the way.</p>

<p>Huntsman is a crap shot for anybody applying. A really strong essay is essential. Stress your interest in business, not just languages.</p>

<p>Thank you for your input. Should I base much of my essay on how to combine language and business or should that be a somewhat minor point?</p>

<p>You should speak from the heart. I would think you would want to talk about your interest in international business (working for a multi-national corp or in trade politics?) and your love for and ability with foreign languages/cultures. </p>

<p>You should definitely search old Huntman threads and try to reach out to students currently in the program. This is such a specialized program that you should try to find out if it is right for you before applying. </p>

<p>BTW, Georgetown's SFS program may also be of interest to you.</p>

<p>Thanks, this sounds great. I will definitely form some form of communication with myself and some students in Huntsman. I want to know their true thoughts on the program before applying and while attending.</p>

<p>I was considering Georgetown, but I felt a little distanced there because religion and theology are really not my things. I know they have a place for everyone from every background, but I just didn't feel too comfortable.</p>

<p>Do you know of any other programs similar to Huntsman?</p>

Does anyone know of any other program similar to the Huntsman program at Penn?</p>

<p>I think around 500-600 apply for around 40 spots. Emphasis on foreign languages and leadership, I believe (plus everything else).</p>

<p>Where'd you get that info?</p>
