    Congrats on getting accepted!

    I'm also going to be applying for wharton next year, and it would really help if you have any advice you could share, stats, extracurriculars, etc.

    Tysm!

    @owlmeat I was accepted into CAS so I'm not sure how relevant this info will be, but I'll try!
    ACT: (super score) 30
    SAT/Subject tests: N/A
    GPA: UW 3.91, W 4.73
    Rank: Top 1%
    12 AP courses total - quite a few honors courses - 6 APs my senior year
    EC's: Debate (officer for 2 yrs), NHS (officer 1 yr), 3-year hs medical program, 4 yrs of V track and field + 4 yrs of V cross country, 3 years of volunteering @ a clinic, and 6-week summer program in coding and another 2-week pre-college program in engineering
    Hooks: FGLI student
    Awards: Couple very meaningful awards, most were local and 2 were regional, 1 national
    Essays: I honestly thought they were pretty good.
    LoRs: Both were from junior year teachers who I really grew close to throughout the year

    Some tips I have is to be as genuine as you can. Though my GPA could be seen as somewhat "competitive," my ACT score is below their average, so I had convinced myself I would be rejected based on my stats, but here I am lol. I also had experience in my intended major with the medical program and summer programs so I recommend doing activities that relate to your major. This helps not only to demonstrate actual interest but makes the essay writing sooo easy. Make sure your essays are well thought out (I finished my common app essay in October and revised it 10000x) and that you've done your research! I included courses I would like to take, clubs I would want to be a part of, and research opportunities I found interesting. Also, take this with a grain of salt, admissions can be so variable sometimes so be patient, enjoy your junior year, and stay curious!

    waitlisted w/ 1580 SAT, great rec letters and 10/10 essays. i'm convinced my interview was the dealbreaker for me because my interviewer didn't seem to like me too much (he was very into talking about his frat and just seemed very different type of person from me). but oh well I wouldn't have been able to afford it anyways

    on another note does anyone know what percentage of applicants are waitlisted? I read somewhere that generally 5-6% of applicants are put on the waitlist but not sure if there's any validity to that

    accepted with 1540 superscore SAT, good rec letters (i think!) and in my opinion, good essays. Interview went really well, but i know that it has a minuscule effect on admissions as a whole. congrats to everyone!

    Run away unless you're 100% sure research is what you want to do forever.

    If you applied to the ISB program does your acceptance say you have been accepted to the College of Arts and Sciences or the ISB program?

    I got a letter inviting me to the Benjamin Franklin Scholars Program that was under my acceptance letter in the portal. Does anyone know if everyone who gets accepted gets invited or do they only select a few students?

    Accepted to Wharton!!! As an international asking for a lot of aid I think this is huge accomplishment.
    I got into Harvard so I think i'll go there.

    Does anyone know how much the UPenn enrollment deposit is? Can’t find that info anywhere with/ out accessing the link to accept. Not quite ready to do that yet. Need to plan for my budget. Thanks in advance.
