UPenn's decision


Cecilia_A

@ Cecilia_A - regardless of work ex you can still apply for Wharton Business Certificate program if you feel you are eligible.


Oh, ok, thanks for the info. But I honestly don't get it! On the website they write "Penn Law LLM students who have at least three years of work experience and meet specific program requirements are eligible to apply. This new program will run concurrently with the LLM program."

Do you know anyone who was admitted without the 3 years work exp?

I also got rejected form UPenn, but I do not care. I am already admitted to Duke and some other Top12 programs.
If they had admitted me, I'd not have excepted their offer. Maybe they felt so too.
Is it possible that the universities know from each other and communicate about admissions decisions?


I highly doubt that since it would most likely be illegal and because I have been admitted to UPenn (yesterday) even though I have already been admitted to Duke, Chicago, and Virginia.

Interesting. I have asked myself the same question. I do not believe that law schools send each other a list with all the applicant that have been accepted, but I do believe that in some cases, one Admission Officer could phone or email other to ask about a particular case. I have heard that the Admission Community is very small, especially in the top 15 law school, and usually the same admissions clerks rotate between law schools, so everyone knows each other.
Before apply to Columbia and Penn (both law schools required in their application to state to which other law schools you are applying) I asked to some JDs and alumni form thus law schools if it is convenient to state all the other law schools that I was applying, and they said of course, because if they discover that you are applying to other law schools (that you didnt inform in the application) they will think that youre cheating, and in USA nobody want a liar in his university . Some law schools offers an early application option for the JDs, and if you use that option, you compromise that if they make you an offer, you cant refuse it (binding offer), and you cant apply to more than one law school using that option (because it implies that that law school is your first choice. And in some cases, Admissions Deans have discovered that one student is applying to more than one university using that option.

Sorry if I bore someone, but writing here is a good way to kill anxiety until Yale release admissions notices.

Oh, I forgot in the post above to mention that I believe that, when a law school grant you a good scholarship (i.e. Hausser), maybe they ask some law schools about your status, but that is just a thought

@ Cecilia _A

Hi go to this link

http://executiveeducation.wharton.upenn.edu/wpwp/Prog-WBLC.cfm#requirements

Read the note:

Note: Penn Law LLM students who do not meet these formal requirements may apply if they believe their credentials are substantially equivalent. When submitting the WBLC application, such candidates should explain, in 250 words or less, the basis of their equivalent credentials. WPWP will consider such applications on an individual basis, which may delay notification of the admission decision. Acceptance into the Wharton certificate program is at the sole discretion of WPWP.

Hope this helps

Regards

I have been admitted to Upenn with less than 3 years of working experience. My case is rather curious I must admit since my grades aren't that good, they are the equivalent to a B and I just graduated from law school in december, but I want to think that my recommendation letters where somehow strong even though I've no idea what's in them. I wish everyone the best of lucks.

Thanks elelem! I should have known, there are always exceptions to the principle...
Although, I don't know if I would have a shot with no work exp (except summer internships) at all ;-)

I was waitlisted, and I couldn't care less... :-)))) As far as UPenn is concerned, I reached a state of ATARAXIS!

UPenn was my 7th and last choice, and I appl. only to learn of my admission on early Feb. (not to hear, almost in March, that I was waitlisted... huahuahua).

Be that as it may, I will refuse any place possibly offered by UPenn to me. So, if there is any Brazilian lower ranked than me in the waitlist (assuming that they rank people within this W/L by country), this virtual spot is yours! ;-)

Boa quarta-feira de cinzas a todos!
