I am a pretty good writer so I think my essays will be pretty good. I am confident in my recommendations, and I am good with interviews as well. I know my SAT I scores are a bit low but will solid SAT II scores pick up my app a little bit? Please be honest...Thanks. Tell me if you need anything else.

    sorry to say, but your chances are moderate to low for any program at Penn, let alone Jerome Fisher, which is possibly the most selective program in the world.

    I thought the Huntsman program is the most exclusive program at UPENN. I think you have a fair chance, probably not for the program, but to get into UPENN. Your grades are slightly on the average side but if you can pull off a good essay and recommendations, you might be able to shoot for an entrance spot.
