    That was a wonderful recap, hopeful!

    I left the chat feeling really great about Penn--with the exception of the details about tuition, yikes. I am probably going to attend the next chat session as well. Most of the things I learned were result of other people's questions.

    Yes, definitely attend the second chat and plan on being there the entire time! hollysf is right, you learn so much from other people's questions. It was awesome. Oh - average GPA for admits was a 3.5, and she couldn't really give us GRE information because of the new scale.

    Are you all planning to submit your apps closer to the deadline? I feel ready to submit mine later this week, but I'm afraid to send it prematurely.

    Is everyone submitting their Penn essays in 12pt font? The prompt doesn't specify how large the font should be, and I am tempted to change my essays to 11pt font so I can fit more information in. Do you think this would be a mistake? I feel like I already know the answer to this, but I am curious about what everyone else thinks.

    Also, is anyone going to the October 19th information session in San Francisco? I would love to meet up with anyone who can make it!

    I had mine at 12pt, but if yours is at 11pt, I sincerely doubt it would be an issue. However, I think it may be wiser to just make it 12pt, mess around with the margins, and maybe go a little over 2 pages if need be... I doubt they mind if you go over.

    I wish they had an information session near my area!

    I'm considering going to the information session if I can get off of work!

    Where's the SF info session being held? I can't find any information about it on the Penn website!

    Ai yi yi! I can't believe I missed hearing about this. I did visit the school earlier this year but still believe that every bit of face time helps. I'm registered -- I'll see you there!

    I can't wait to visit the school. How did you feel about it? Did you take a tour or go to an information session?
