    I got into Penn and received the Deans scholarship as well. If I didn't get that it would have been an easy decision to attend my state school but not it a tough call... I got a my package in Cali today fyi! Only have until the 16th to decide on the scholarship

    It seems everybody who has received the Penn acceptance so far has gotten the Dean's Scholarship. I guess those must go out first?

    I got my letter from UPenn today! Wow! I didn't think I would get in. However, no scholarship attached... so I am going to decline it since I got into my state school too. However it's hard to say no to an Ivy league school :(

    Hey 7 Iron, congrats on acceptance, too bad you are turning it down. Which service did they use to mail it to you? UPS or first class?

    Got in, not going. Nothing about about it would make me choose it over Buffalo. Unless you got the dean's scholarship, it's not even close to worth the cost of tuition.

    It appears that Dean's recipients received their letters on Dec 1st, so the answer to your question would be none are left for now. If people turn down the offer, then the scholarship is passed on down to the next person.

    On a sidenote...

    How many students are awarded the dean's scholarship each year? What is the total class size?
    Anyone know where I can find the specializing rates/placement for UPenn?
    Thanks

    I got my acceptance yesterday! I was/am so excited. How is everyone making decisions? I got accepted to Columbia, Maryland, Ohio State and Penn and have an Army scholarship, so finances are not an issue. I realize this is such an awesome position to be in, but I have no idea how I am going to choose.
