    Accepted!! This is insane, I was rejected by both Brown and Yale and I opened my #1 last which was/is UPenn! Congrats to everyone that was either accepted, waitlisted, or rejected. This process has been dreadfully stressful and applying to the Ivy League is that stress^2, but we got through and I hope we all attend a school that we learn to love this fall! Woo Class of 2023!

    It may just be the influx of applicants opening their portals that could be lagging the server.
    I was also invited to the BFS, do you know how many people get invited/acceptance into the program?

    Denied.

    Applied RD for the AI program (Cognitive and Computer Science), with secondary major being Computer Science at SEAS.

    SAT Superscore: 1530 (730ERBW, 800M)
    SAT Subject Tests: 800 M2, 730 Physics
    APs: Stats 3, CSA 5, APUSH 5, BC 4 (AB 5), Physics 1 3

    ECs: Piano, martial arts, Boy Scouts, National Honor Society, Science National Honor Society, Mu Alpha Theta founder, programming club founder, math/science competition coaching, internship.

    Recommendations: Calculus teacher, English teacher, counselor, internship employer. All were pretty good I think (didn't see them).

    Essays: Common App essay was about Rubik's Cubes which I thought was good, Penn supplement was good too, I talked about how one of my projects was inspired by the engineering dean's research/TED talks.

    I was really hoping to get into Penn, but I guess the odds weren't in my favor.

    Son got rejected. Thank god! UPenn would’ve cost me a fortune by the time he graduated.

    Deferred ED then rejected from Wharton. Not too disappointed because during my months of waiting I realized I liked another school more, but congratulations to those admitted! The campus is pretty nice :)

    1570 SAT, 780+ on 3 subject tests, 4.0 UW GPA, 4.6 W GPA, salutatorian from MA public school
    No nationally-ranked ECs or awards besides National Merit Finalist, probably my weak point
