I'm a rising senior currently applying to colleges and I came across the LSM program. My focus during high school has been research and mostly STEM related activities, but I've always been interested in business and I want to explore it more in college. Ultimately, I REALLY want to apply ED to LSM. I was wondering if anyone on here is in the LSM program and if they think that its fine that what I've done in high school covers only 1/2 of what this program covers. I was just concerned because I know you have to be accepted to the College of Arts and Sciences AND Wharton, so I'm thinking I'm hopeless lmao. In addition, if you have any stats on how many people apply, what they like to see in your LSM essay, how I can contact anyone in the program currently, etc. PLEASE LMK

    Hi, I'm a teacher at Wharton. I don't know much about the Vagelos program (as it's known on campus, I never hear "LSM"), but I've had a number of students who are in it. It's one of the top three interdisciplinary programs along with Jerome Fisher (M&T) and the Huntsman program. The idea of Vagelos AFAICT is to educate people who'd be equally at home as industry research scientists or biomedical tech investors, but nearly all that I have met were headed to private equity.
    To learn more, you should contact the program office through the website, try to set up a meet with them and also see if you can network with some current students.
    If you get dinged applying to Vagelos, they bump your application either to Wharton or to SAS according to your choice (just one, not both). GL to you.
