UPenn LLM 2014


melmelo
Hi everybody !!

Could you share what kind of candidate you are ? I'm trying to figure out if I stand a chance to get into an LLM next year and I saw that a lot of few got accepted this year so it would be interesting to see what kind of resume you all have.

I'm a french student finishing my "licence". I'm currently studying abroad in England. I have, as of now, 14/20 (mention bien), which at the university of Toulouse means that I am in the first 10% of the class. I don't have any experience however. Next year I will be doing a Master 1 in Business Law.

Thanks in advance everyone :)

I emailed them about financial aid, and this is the reply:

"We began making financial assistance determinations in late February, however, the process may last well into the month of April. At this point it is not possible to predict how the limited financial assistance available will be distributed, however, you will certainly be considered as a candidate for whatever financial assistance is available. "

Hey guys,

I got waitlisted unfortunately.
Does anyone know, STATISTICALLY, when will I hear back from UPenn to inform me of whether a seat has been made available for me or a definitive rejection?

My "Applicant Online Status" does not show anything like "under review," "application complete," etc. Is anyone on the same boat? Is this mean that I was rejected?

Hi, I haven't heard from UPenn on aid as yet. Considering we need to make the deposit by April 1, I am quite surprised - or have they already made a first round of scholarship offers? which may trickle down to others based on rejections?

I emailed them a few days ago and they said: "will make a first round of scholarship offers before April 1 [...] we may have scholarship money to offer after April 1 and will contact admitted students accordingly. "

However some people in here have already reported receiving scholarships or financial aid.

So I guess we will just have to wait and see...

They told me that they have already made first round of scholarship decisions. Second round will be after April 1 should anyone decline their offer. I guess the chances are slim..

Same here. The chances may be slim, but again not losing hope.

Just wanted to know, how many are for sure enrolling for UPenn and also for the Wharton Certificate program.
