    December 2nd: Received my acceptance, with dean's scholarship, this morning by express post. The letter was stamped December 1st. Sending in my deposit right now!

    This is how I expect my life to play out, or else I'm going to go talk to my shrink.

    I would check AADSAS on November 30th at 11:59pm and for the next couple of hours after that. A lot of schools update AADSAS early. Also some schools will mail out your acceptance a couple of days in advance (anticipating it to arrive on December 1st. But it actually arrives one or two days sooner. ;)

    I also received a call from Corky today...very excited! just curious though did she mention the scholarship over the phone to those who have received it? i am hoping it may have slipped her mind when she called me.

    What time did Corky call you guys? Is it late enough to warrant thinking that she didn't call everyone today?

    Someone make a facebook group - I've got some creeping to do!

    Congrats, everyone! For what it's worth, if I had to do it over again, I'd still pick Penn in a heartbeat.

    I was accepted in the first week of December but did not receive the dean's scholarship. On last year's forum some students who were accepted in February noted that they received the scholarship upon admission. Does anyone think that those who have already been accepted, paid the deposit, and did not receive the scholarship initially will be awarded the scholarship later in the process?

    No, the deposit is really an incentive to convince people to attend. If you already made the deposit and/or they know Penn is your top choice, then that money is going to someone else with similar stats and have Penn as a #2 or #3 choice. That's why I always tell all my schools that they are one of my top 2 choices lol.

    Is anyone interested in renting out a house starting in June? I was thinking about renting a pretty nice place with 3 or 4 people. I checked the graduate housing and it seems much more expensive than private housing. After looking at houses for rent it seems very doable to get a place for 3-500 per person. I'm a 23 year old male and wouldn't mind rooming with either males or females. I'm really laid back, but I study hard and work hard. I think that it would be ideal to room with other dental students.

    When was your interview and when did you find your status out? I believe they take a few people off the waitlist.

    I suggest to avoid Craigslist and spend a day or two at Penn looking for apartments. The CL listings are very slim and not indicative of the real apt. market around campus. I stopped by two apartment rental companies located around campus last week and they had listings of hundreds of available apts and the prices were cheaper too than the ones found on CL.

    I'm a female 2nd year dental student at Penn living with two other girls: another 2nd year student and a 4th year student. Since the 4th year is moving out, we need a new roommate! I sent an email to Corky that she might've forwarded out to the incoming class, but I thought I'd try this too. Here's the copy and pasted email about our place: ..........(also, do you guys have a facebook group for the 2016 class???)

    Hi Class of 2016!
    We are two 2nd year dental students looking for a 3rd roommate for next year. We live in a large Victorian style house; the owner is a doctor that lives on the 3rd and 4th floors in his separate apartment. We have the 1st and 2nd floors. Downstairs we have the kitchen, living room, dining room, half bathroom and newly redone backyard. The 3 bedrooms and full bathroom are upstairs and there's a washer and dryer in the basement. The available bedroom is $575/month plus utilities that average about $100/month. We're only four blocks from school(44th and Locust), and there are coffee shops, a grocery store, and CVS, within the block. To tell a little about us, we are easy-going, enjoy cooking and baking together, going out, and watching Smash(!!). We are clean and would like a roommate that is too. And, sorry boys, we'd like a girl roommate. You can see pictures of the house and available bedroom here:

    http://s1261.photobucket.com/albums/ii590/suziemss/

    Please email us back([email protected]) if you have any questions or are interested and we can set up a skype date! Congrats and welcome to Penn Dental!
