    ya penn is really nice..I applied there too, had a phone interview. How's the jhu campus? I have never been. My cousin goes to penn so i know how that is. JHU was my first choice just because it has the same reputation and ill finish earlier...But now I am kind of nervous about the financial aid package from jhu.

    I haven't been to the JHU campus yet, I did a phone interview. If I get in though, I'm probably going to go up for the day and look around so I can get a feel for everything and see how I like the campus. A lot depends on financial aid, just like for you.

    This is random, but why did you opt for a phone interview at Penn and not an in person interview?

    They said it didn't matter if you do a phone interview or in person. It would have been such a hassle to go there in this cold weather and it didn't matter to me if i get in at penn or I wanted to do the same for both schools. I live in the east coast tho but just hate traveling in cold.

    @ Fingers cross'd- I also applied regular decision and had my interview roughly 8 weeks ago.. the admissions officer said I would be notified within 6-weeks. But then I called her after 6-weeks and then she said dec 15..I dont want to hassle her again but I want to know already!!! this waiting game is terrible..

    That is VERY exciting for you guys! I applied for fall, had my interview about 7 weeks ago, and I'm honestly not sure when I will know if I got in or not. I haven't gotten the same answer from ANYONE yet! Ahh! I'm nervous but excited as well!

    @hopefulnurse, just curious but why fall and not summer??

    Well, first and foremost, I am graduating in May so a break would be nice, not to mention I'm still going to be paying rent on my apartment through July! But also, I've read on here in past years threads that most people who start in the summer have to drop back and do the fall cohort's curriculum because it is too much... so I figured fall would just be better anyways.

    Oh yeah I completely get that; a break between undergrad and grad is a good idea. My break has been over 2 years now so I'm anxious to get back to school

    Damn..when you say 'most people hold back' that's a big statement. I hope there's a reason they have the summer entry running cause people are finishing off in time. Plus I would say most people are not even on this website telling if they got accepted. It's just a bunch who have a hard time with the program and I won't be surprised if there are a few in every year's class that hold back. But I wouldn't say most. It is accelerated either way..either you handle the pressure or not. Sorry I am not trying to argue or anything but I think it isn't true. You actually scared me as it sounded like out of 100 students 70 of them hold back lol. But I hope we all will get through since it's a huge commitment.

    If you look on past years threads, it has been stated that most of the summer students do fall back to the fall term. I'm just stating what many of us have already read - the summer term is very challenging and it's a lot to handle. But they aren't "held back", they just lessen their load of classes and graduate a little later.

    did everyone get the email about the online chat on wednesday 12/19..I might ask about the regular decision announcements but i dont want to be too ill probably just read over the chat..

    Yeah I got the email, too. I may ask, but I also don't want to seem too pushy. I also have questions on financial aid so I will definitely be there.
