Same School

<p>How often does Penn except two people from the same school? My friend and I are both applying to CAS ED from a high school in New Jersey. Ironically, we both intend to major in biology (however, she is going pre-med and I am looking to take a concentration in evolutionary biology). She is ranked in the top ten of the class, I am 30/570 ( i messed up freshman year.. only difference). She has a <2100 and I have 2200. We both take the same courses practically and have great recs ... and both have amazing ECs. The only major difference, I guess, is that I am a legacy and she is not. What are the chances of Penn accepting two people from the same school?</p>

<p>darn good, especially if the school is a respected one.</p>

<p>plenty of schools send more than one student - it's more about the quality of students than a "quota"</p>

<p>my high school (also nj public) sent 5 my year, and later penn accepted a 6th via transfer</p>

<p>k good... i am not assuming that any of us will get accepted. I just think it would be a shame if one did and the other did not</p>

<p>two friends and i checked our decisions online on the same computer, one after the other</p>

<p>thankfully we all made it in (and all decided to go)</p>

<p>otherwise that would have been awkward</p>

<p>Lol, there are some schools who have sent >10 kids in one year. Don't worry too much about it, it happens.</p>

<p>my bff just told me she's applying ed to penn...and shes a semi-legacy. fml anyone?</p>

<p>what does semi-legacy mean?</p>

what does semi-legacy mean


<p>her mom attended, but transfered ... jk</p>

<p>I have no idea.</p>

<p>But anyway, Penn does not have quotas for specific schools, although certain regions or states will have a "general" quota so to speak.</p>

<p>Around 30 students from last year's senior class in my school were accepted to Penn. So they don't really have quotas for schools. As tenebrousfire said, I'm sure it's more about quality of the individual student.</p>

<p>haha..idk what semi-legacy is.. his sibling attends upenn currently..</p>
