<p>Does anyone know if penn has stated how they intend to act in light of Harvard's decision to scrap their early admissions program? I'm assuming that since Penn didn't follow Harvard to EA they probably wont give up the early admissions but has anyonee heard otherwise?</p>
<p>From today's DP:</p>
Penn spokeswoman Lori Doyle said that although Penn officials have held a series of meetings since Harvard's announcement, Penn has no plans at present to change its binding early decision practice.</p>
<p>Early admission "has been very successful for us and for our students," she said. "We like admitting students who select Penn as their first choice."
