I put UPenn instead of Penn in my essay...

<p>Well, it's just come to my attention that you're supposed to abbreviate the University of Pennsylvania into "Penn" and not "UPenn". Unfortunately, I used "UPenn" multiple times throughout my application essay.</p>

<p>Is this a significant blunder? Should I be worried about it?</p>

<p>relax its not a big deal.</p>

<p>Automatic rejection. :(</p>

<p>Just kidding. :p</p>

<p>Listen to happyman2. He's very wise . . . . . and happy. :cool:</p>

<p>I'm confident that more than a few of the 3800-plus accepted applicants each year refer to the school as UPenn in their essays.</p>

<p>I am sure admissions officers get a mix bag of abbreviations. The only way that it could possibly be a problem is say the admin hates when applicants uses UPENN and is irritable when reading your file and they auto-reject you hahaha, but that of course is highly unlikely.</p>

<p>Not an issue as long as you didn't put PennState!</p>

<p>Great minds think alike! I admit i did the same thing and I hugely regret putting UPenn instead of Penn. but its too late to worry about it now.. :/</p>

<p>I had a similar worry with UChicago; my interviewer kept saying "U of C" and I used "UChicago" in my essay and stuff. Note that UChicago is used on their website, and upenn.edu is the web address of Penn.</p>

<p>Either way - not a big deal. Everyone I know calls it "UPenn" except me :P.</p>

<p>Dude, the email addresses for Penn have "upenn.edu" in them, let alone the main website.</p>

<p>So I think you are fine, as long as you were consistent.</p>

<p>It shouldn't be that big of a deal.</p>
