<p>I think that's what I submitted on my application. So thanks for your time.</p>

<p>rejected.............................. lol sike... its like, random, u might u might not.</p>

<p>Your major would have to be Business with a concentration in Finance/OPIM etc; Wharton does not have an Economics major. Economics is offered in Penn's College, and is very different from studying business.</p>

<p>^^ I thought the degree was a BS in Economics?</p>

<p>Yes the degree is CALLED a BS in Economics, but you don't study Economics. Penn and MIT don't think a BBA is prestigious, so called their undergraduate business degrees BS in Economics. If you want to study Economics apply to the College, if you want to study business apply to Wharton. They're very different subjects so make sure you research them properly before you decide.</p>

<p>^Yeah, I know. I realize that Wharton is undergrad business. I just put that down as my major because that is what they call it. :)</p>

<p>Troy? Pioneer? Grosse Pointe?</p>

<p>If you learn anything on this forum, learn this:</p>

<p>{above a certain level} *** It's not about stats!***</p>

<p>You can see this if you look at prior years' decision threads or wait for this year's.</p>
