Also 10.5K a year (which they say will rise with tuition, and maybe more if I'm really, really good and eat all of my vegetables).
Towanda say it isn't so ...
I was hoping the OP was right. I figured if they're accepting 2.9s I'd be an auto-admit at Yale, what with my URM status and all.
I'm looking forward to it as well. In terms of where you'll likely live, if you're not gonna have on-campus housing, you'll want to check out University City and Center City. In general, you'll almost certainly live downtown from the Penn campus as opposed to anywhere uptown past 42nd street (where the area turns slightly dodgy, but that's vastly overblown). If you're looking to see the sites, there's lots of history (liberty bell, rocky steps, stuff like that) all over the place.
