Regional Question

<p>I've heard rumblings that people in the imminent area of Penn might have a (slight) advantage. Any truth to this?</p>

<p>(Now I think this is more because the schools in the area might have better relationships with the school itself, but w/e)</p>

<p>This is probably true, especially if your school is within the city limits. It is probably true to a lesser extent in the suburban schools - more get in, but more apply as well. Of course, there is no real way to quantitatively prove this using public sources...</p>

<p>I've heard that Penn cares about geography more than others. I'm hoping this may be a plus for me... I would doubt anyone in my entire district has applied to Penn (and very few to other Ivies) in the past ten years or so.</p>

<p>Well, my guidance counselor was telling me about it. Now, we've had at least one or two people get into Penn every year (Philly burbs) and two this year ED with around 12 applying this year.</p>
