Penn’s graduate programs are highly competitive. Each of the graduate programs at Penn have their own application and criteria for acceptance. Some require standardized testing which should be taken early in case you need to take a second time to improve your scores. Please go directly to the specific graduate program website to research what is necessary and how to best present your application. If you are applying to Wharton Business School it is strongly recommended that you apply by their first deadline to increase your chance of being accepted, and it will be expected that you have completed or are due to complete your GMAT test at the point of applying for the Thouron Award.
