    Here's another fun subject I was just chatting with hollysf about. How many of you tell people about UPenn and then people start talking about Penn State or bringing up Joe Paterno? My aunt is the worst. She keeps on saying UConn. haha. Along those same lines, it's weird that friends and family are way more excited about the idea of Columbia or Yale than Penn, just because of the branding/name recognition. Anyone else experiencing these things?

    Feminista- I agree with everyone else- it's a great sign! I kind of wish I forgot to submit a page to my financial aid app so then I could know faster too
    I get the whole, "you mean penn state?" line all the time and it's crazy. I don't want to have to spell it out for people every time and say "the university of Pennsylvania."

    Ry425- does you cavachon destroy the house if you leave him alone for too long?

    Everyone thinks I'm waiting to hear back from Penn State... I have to explain to everyone that they're both great, but two very different schools haha. You'd be surprised how many well-educated people confuse the two, just because they sound similar and are in similar parts of the country...

    The butterflies are starting to settle in by this time tomorrow though, it'll all be over!

    wow you guys are so awesome! been having a rough day and reading through the last couple of pages of this forum has totally put a smile on my face. I too am currently obsessed with Downton Abbey, LOVE dogs, and adore baking. Sadly I don't know if we'll have time to take care of a pup. I have a friend that recently went through Penn's program and it seemed like she barely had time to breathe and take care of herself.

    t-9 hours!!

    I hate to burst your bubble (and I hope I am wrong) but it isn't t-9. We find out at 3pm, not am :-/

    okay. it's starting to hit me. I'm REALLY nervous. trying not to think about it but I'd say "the decision" is occupying about 60% of my thoughts right now. haha. I hope I can sleep tonight!

    I'm definitely nervous, but I'm doing alright. I've kept myself very busy these past few days. Just remember that there's nothing we can do about it... and we will all hear at the same exact time, which is so much nicer than how the school notified us for interviews! You won't have to wait all week... we will all hear tomorrow at 3 PM EST! We're almost at the home stretch, and at this time tomorrow, we could all be future Penn nurses! I like the sound of that

    Hahaha I can't sleep so I am opening my secret weapon: charonnay and an episode of Revenge that I saved for tonight to distract myself. Tomorrows plan of distraction: gym (running slowly,haha!!), haircut, visiting SPCA to play with puppies, and baking a chocolate cake. That should keep me distracted long enough, right??? Aaaahhhhhh

    What is everyone else's plan of distraction?

    feminista_siempre - I received a similar e-mail regarding my financial aid forms (last Friday)...hoping that means good news tomorrow!

    I'm a former Penn State grad and I also encounter Pennsylvania residents that confuse UPenn and PSU. Frustrating, but gives me a great opportunity to talk about the positive aspects of both schools.

    Best of luck to everyone tomorrow.

    I keep playing the scenario of finding out that I got in - and then I get super excited! But then I play the scenario of getting rejected and feeling completely bummed out! Tomorrow I'm planning to go to the gym, clean out my closet, and go to Goodwill. That should keep me occupied until 3pm EST (noon my time). Good luck everyone!
