I am also enrolling. I planned on doing the Wharton Certificate but I just find it to be too expensive (approx. 13k). Is anyone doing?

yop im almost sure ill go for that.. right now im trying to contact some of the alumni who did certificate to learn about their experience and make myself 100 per cent sure that it is worth the extra monetary burden. Do not have any useful information just yet. If anyone could chip in with their insights on the WBLC it would be greatly appreciated.

I have one friend who's doing just now the LLM and he told me that the WBLC is absolutely worth it, not to mention that Wharton is now the third best business school in the U.S (according to U.S. News 2015 ranking). Has anyone heard something different?

I still wait for NYU and Columbia's decisions, but I do not know which choice I will make between Cornell and UPenn ... Anyone in the same situation ?

100% UPenn over Cornell. I was also admitted to both of them. City + Ranking = UPenn

I think I am enrolling as well. However I would like to find out what are the chances for receiving financial aid after depositing the initial $500.

I think pretty slim since the first wave of financial aid offers will come before April 1st - meaning if you dont get your offer on financial aid before April 1st it is not a good sign at all. (at least this is how I understand the process - correct me if I am wrong)

Well I did write to the Associate Director Graduate programs and she said that the first offers had already been made but they would be able to make a few more after April 1st( this was on 13th March). Thing is I haven't heard anyone say they have a scholarship unless those that received them are not on this blog or the Upenn blog

well that is not good news to me at all - perhaps the first offers had been made to those admitted via the early cycle? Just like you, I havent been able to find anyone on this forum with scholarship offer from PennLaw which is a bit odd.

Yes it is odd, I am also anxious about the financial aid issue. But I guess we will have to wait.

well one of the users of this forum just messaged me saying that she was confirmed by the admission office that the first offers had already been made as to March 14. Really brought my hopes down. Full tuition itself is an unbelievable financial burden. Thinking of the WBLC is now out of question. Penn Law does not allow for tuition deferral so paying the tuition after graduation is not an option either. Though I was not going to stay in the US after completing my LLM at least I thought that sticking around for some shorter period of time might be a solution to the financial commitments. Recently I have been getting more and more information that gaining a job in the US depends on other things than your resume and skills. What a prospect huh

I guess the only thing now is to hope that after April 1 more financial aid decisions are made and we are among those that do get.

I was just wondering if there was anyone on the forum who had any more insight on this

CENTER CITY X UNIVERSITY CITY?

Does anyone have insights with regard to housing in Philly? That would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

Just a stupid question to those of you who will accept Penns offer without any scholarship - are you planning on staying in the U.S after you have finished the program and work? does anyone have an idea on the job prospect for Penn LLMs nowadays. I myself had no intention of sticking around but I guess I will have to try my best to land a job in the U:S. Not very confident about the the job prospect though
