Likely letter

<p>I received one in the mail today, dated March 15. Anyone else get one? Prospects are 98% for acceptance, according to the letter.</p>

<p>Nice job. I though Wharton didn't give out likelies?</p>

<p>Good job! Post stats :]</p>

<p>can you please post exactly whats written on the letter? does it actually say 98% chance?</p>

<p>which school at upenn is it for?</p>

<p>I wish him the best, but I am beginning to think he is pulling our legs. Lol. Unless he is an athlete, I don't remember U Penn sending out likely letters.</p>

<p>I applied to the College, and I am a she, thank you very much ;)</p>

<p>I'm also a non-athlete. I'm not up for posting stats but I come from the Dakotas and was one question shy of a perfect score on the SAT.</p>

<p>And yes, the letter actually does state that while it is not an official offer of admission, 98% of those who receive likely letters do get admitted.</p>

<p>strange time to give out a likely but congrats nonetheless</p>

<p>Congratulations then! Sorry, the name doesn't exactly give a great hint about your gender. Anyone receive a likely from Wharton? </p>

<p>Hope this was your #1 choice?</p>

<p>congrats! i wonder if i should be expecting one... NERVOUS.</p>

<p>I got one too, I think it's only for certain ethnicities because they invited me to an annual multicultural scholars’ preview on April 13.</p>

<p>Oh wow...I never knew Penn sent out likely letters. Hum...well...CONGRATS :)</p>

<p>congrats if u got in</p>

<p>when did you submit your app?</p>

<p>I submitted my application the day of the deadline. I applied to the college as well but you can get this letter no matter what college you applied to, including wharton. The letter comes with a yellow sheet of paper that is used for registration for the Scholars' Preview. It asked you to circle the school you were accepted to, College, Engineering, Nursing, and Wharton. Is anybody going to the preview?</p>

<p>i got one too and i agree that its probably for certain ethnicities b/c im no athlete. it says </p>

<p>"I am pleased to inform you that the committee has designated you as a likely candidate for admission to Penn's class of 2012. In recent years, approximately 98% of applicants receiving a likely evaluation were ultimately admitted. We expect......that we will confirm this interim notification later this month."</p>

<p>has anyone received this kind of letter in previous years?? i guess nothing is written in stone yet but it sounds like great news. who's going to the program??</p>

<p>I wonder what happens to the other 2% that received likelies but didn't get the admissions offer in the end. Did they lie on their applications?</p>

<p>I got a likely letter yesterday (dated March 15)...imagine my surprise :)</p>

<p>i got a likely yesterday, i'm still in awe</p>

<p>you said 'multicultural scholars' it (the letter/Scholars' Preview) only for students who applied for fa or scholarships?</p>
