Wharton international acceptance rate?

<p>Can anyone speculate or confirm the most recent Wharton international acceptance rate or applicants accepted/denied?</p>

<p>How much of an advantage is applying as a Canadian, as opposed to other Intl countries?</p>

<p>Overall Intl acceptance rate I found was 14% a year ago. Would Wharton be closer to 5% or 10%?</p>

<p>I would think it’s much, much lower than 10%. Possibly 3-6%. Also, most accepted internationals have the ability to pay for their education at Penn. So, things get a lot more tricky for internationals applying for aid. Though, I would never discourage you to apply regardless of your financial status.</p>

<p>"The University has a “need aware” policy regarding financial aid for students who are not citizens or permanent residents of the U.S., Canada or Mexico. "</p>

<p>Yes, that is what I said. What have you added to the conversation?</p>

<p>Lobzz, the OP was asking about internationals, specifically Canadians. You said “things get tricky when applying for aid,” and @banmaisen was clarifying that as a Canadian, Penn is still need blind, and only becomes need aware for other internationals.</p>

<p>Id say that was an appropriate contribution to this conversation, and even when I was reading this thread (as a Wharton applicant seeking aid, from Canada), I was confused as to your statement saying that international applications get tricky when aid is involved.</p>

<p>My apologies, then.</p>

<p>This is just a wild estimate, I might be extremely off…
Non-financial aid= Same as the American, Canadian, Mexican dudes.
Financial Aid= 3-4%</p>

<p>I would think that being an Asian international would hurt your chances, especially if you are not extremely good at math. Canadians though would probably depend on that specific year’s applicant pool.</p>
