I Was Waitlisted But I Just Got An Email Today Saying I Have Been Accepted. Its Good News For Me But I Wasnt Offered Any Scholarship So I Dont Know If I Will Accept It Because I Cant Afford The Fees At All. Does Anyone Know any Scholarship Opportunity For Indigent Africans? Or Any Human Rights Scholarship?

Hi guys.
This is a question for all those who were waitlisted. When abouts were you placed on the waitlist? I was waitlisted in february but havent heard back. Im guessing from past posts that the time in which you are placed on the waitlist is irrelevant to whether you are higher up on the waitlist?

Thanks :)

I Got Information On My Waitlist Status On 25th February. They Just Confirmed My Place In UPENN A Few Days Ago. They Gave Me Till 18th To Confirm My Acceptance Or They Will Give Some Other Persons (Maybe Even Before Then) - They Didnt Give Me Any Scholarship And I Cant Afford The School Fees. I Will Look For Scholarship Opportunities And If I Dont Find, I Will Have To Decline.

If You Have Any Information On Scholarship For Indigent Africans In The Field Of Human Rights, Please I Will Be Obliged If I Get Any Hint Or Link On That

So I had emailed Mr. Parker. In his response he said that they are unlikely to turn to the waitlist until after May 1, as that is the next deposit deadline for students admitted in the first round.

I'm not sure how to interpret this statement. Um.. I thought a few students on the waitlist had already heard from Penn?

Tks for the info. I guess a few people withdrew their application before the deadline so some spots became available.

Hey, guys! I was accepted yesterday at the University of Virginia, which is just as good as UPenn, according to the 2013 ranking.

Therefore, I'm going to accept it!

Good luck to everybody on the wait list!

Same. So what have you decided between NU and Upenn? Or do you have offers from other Universities?
