Hello, Has anyone applied to UPenn ED from Chennai city (India) has received an Interview call from UPenn?


Also seeking input from others about a UPenn interview. D22 applied ED (Bay Area, CA) and hasn’t heard from them.

hi. I have also applied to upenn ED. I have not got any interviews. I am also from Chennai.

I applied on Oct 29 and I completed my interview on Nov 10. As noted everywhere, getting or not getting an interview seems to have no bearing on the admission decision.


S22 applied ED and had an interview a little over a week after submitting the application. We are located in New Jersey.
