that's not exactly true. just because penn state is unranked doesn't mean it's somewhere between #60-125. schools may not be ranked in u.s. news for a few reasons:i61164 said:USNEWS only ranks the top 50-60 schools. Since there are about 125 schools, Penn State is just one of the >60 schools that are unranked.
tinkerbelle said:like lightnk says, Penn State never turns in their data...that's why they are unranked.
One of my friends and I also got into Penn State. I really like the school, but I'm deciding between Penn State, Maryland, and NYMC. Unless Penn State gives me an awesome financial aid package, I probably won't go. But of all the schools I've gotten into, I thought the students at Penn State were the friendliest and i could totally see myself hanging out with them.
Good luck getting off the waitlist Buckeye(OH)
i think they said we need to write a thesis/do reserach. You are only expempt from the requirement if you did a research masters or a phdi61164 said:Do you have any details on this? I was unaware of a thesis requirement (I haven't interviewed at PSU yet).
snuffles i'm still sick But anyways. You being at Penn State is the best selling pointsupersnuffles said:You BETTER go tinky mctinky. Baltimore is poo. Why stay in poo for 4 more years. Enjoy chocolate. Yummmmmyyyy. Plus, isn't it worth it hanging out with me for FOUR more years? Okay, so maybe that's not the best selling point....
Hope you're feeling better. Miss you already, baby.
Hi Medikit! I haven't seen you online for the loooongest time Hmmm... why are all the people i like going to Penn State???? When do you hear back from them?Medikit said:If I actually get in there you will have to go to Penn State tink
Did PSU send you an email, or call, or send a snail mail?hunniejl said:Hey guys, I just got my first acceptance from Penn State a few days ago! I interviewed there mid December, and got my letter almost exactly 8 weeks after the interview. Anyone else admitted to Penn State and psyched?
hooniedee said:Hey Lionking, congrats on your acceptance. I interviewed about 4wks ago (Jan 10) and haven't heard a word.
How'd you find out soo soon? Snail mail, calling the admissions office, a friend on the inside????
They say it takes 6-8wks but I would kill to find out sooner so I can save some $$ and skip a couple of other interviews I have lined up.
I'm a Hershey girl, the sweetest place on earth.
Hi Emily.Ylime said:One reason I'm not too anxious to go there is because I'm out of state so tuition is high. And since it's really hard to establish residency, I' be out of state all 4 yrs. But I would like to see the school, so I have to ponder it for a while.
I'm on the waitlist ... still waitingtinkerbelle said:Hi Medikit! I haven't seen you online for the loooongest time Hmmm... why are all the people i like going to Penn State???? When do you hear back from them?
I agree, that letter was confusing.... that orange letter needed to be in within two weeks, I went down to the office to turn the check in with it, and received an email confirmation that they received the check. ....So you still need to send your check in by May 15th (make it out to Penn State University- it doesnt even say that in the letter)- but do you have an address to send it to if you already sent in your orange letter?skiracer90 said:Hey guys,
I have a question. On the acceptance form it says just to return that slip of paper checking off if you want to keep your seat in the class, but it says to have the deposit in by May 15th. So, I just sent in the form without a check and now I'm wondering if perhaps I read it incorrectly???

I just rechecked... that letterhead does indeed appear to have been the same address on the orange sheet... I didn't even think to check there!skiracer90 said:Would I just send it to the office of student affairs? They have an address on the letterhead. If I decide to go there, I could always just call them up and ask them exactly where to send the check to. Thanks for clarifying the whole deposit/orange letter situation. I definitely got a little nervous there for a second.
i61164 said:I just got my interview invite and I'll be heading up to Hershey the first week of March. Anyone care to comment on hotels? I was told that the Hershey Lodge and Hilton Gardens are close to the Biomedical Research building.
I sure hope PSU has some spots left. It's going to be a 9 hour drive each way for me.
Do they give tours of the chocolate factory? It might be something fun for my wife and daughter to do while I'm interviewing.
They do not give tours of the chocolate factory. They have a virtual tour - called Chocolate World - that is located next to Hershey Park. It is free.[/QUOTE]vcatz said:Have any of you been to the Hershey chocolate facility? How far is it from the school? My wife and daughter might want to check it out while I am interviewing.
Congrats Stud... I was going through my acceptance packet again- were we supposed to receive an application for housing? A letter references it, but there was not an application enclosed that I could find.sdnstud said:I received my acceptance to Penn State two days ago. Just wanted to holler at my potential classmates next year!!!
Missy, did your letter state specifically that you were on a waitlist, or give you a ranking of any kind? I got a letter after my interview that said I was in the "hold" category - I was wondering if that's the same thing?naimist said:Hey everyone!
Good to see that everyone's so excited about PSU! I absolutely loved it there, but I'm stuck on the waitlist. Anyone know anything about how many people they take off?
Hopefully I'll see you all this fall!

Anyone having luck looking for off campus houses for rent? anyone moving to hershey from CA? I'm worried....but it makes me feel better that you all will be there.
oh how awesome. i didn't even know penn state had a revisit weekend. Thanks for the infoafr0dite01 said:Hey All,
Just wanted to give some inside scoops. PSUCOM is having a second look day which I believe is April 9th. The info hasn't been sent yet but a MS2 friend clued me in because she was involved in with the planning. Just thought I'd give you all a heads up cause I certainly didn't know anything about it before. Hope to see you all there!!
