    For me you have a hurdle with your HS grades,... They are good but not great or typical of your average Penn over-achiever.... But.....

    Your ambitious writing and success in publishing, whether done on our own or through a publisher is very impressive and to me is more impressive and counters the grade issue (not that Bs are so bad, but a bunch of the is not great on Ivy applications). Your testing is competitive so that should not hurt. I would say that if your writing shows great promise --- and I cannot even begin to guess about that.... then you have a GREAT chance. You sound like a very interesting person and would be a great addition to the Penn student body... you seem to have a real passion for literature, teaching it and getting others involved in it... When writing your why Penn essay.... you should concentrate on it and knock it out of the park. Good luck... and see you on Locust Walk hopefully soon......

    Recruited into a writing program? Let us know about that if you can...

    Best of Luck!!!

    Do schools recruit for things other than sports? When a school recruits you it means they want you and a normal chance thread wouldn’t hold up. Have they given you some written indication that they’re specifically bringing you in for your writing?

    Milygymfam, this is a great question. Lagging Strand, can you share the nature of Upenn's interest in your writing? I believe that in rare instances a school will see an application of a highly talented or accomplished student and approach them, perhaps with a likely letter. Also, there are specific auditions for various programs in music, dance, composition, choreography and musical theatre of course. Persons in design or art, etc. submit portfolios..... but I have never heard the word "recruit" for a writer or for that matter anything outside of sports... Can someone can get us an answer to this one?
