If Penn Actually Cared About Mental Health, the Jonas Brothers Would be Performing at Fling

(04/04/19 5:26am)

It’s no secret that mental health is a prominent issue on Penn’s campus. And in recent years, the administration has — arguably — taken active steps to provide more mental wellness resources to the student body. Huntsman closing at 2 a.m.? Brilliant. Task force? Life-changing. Forcing all sophomores to live on-campus? I've never heard of a better idea.

The growing prominence of Early Decision in Penn’s admissions process is not without controversy. Applicants who apply early must submit a binding contract, and are required to enroll at Penn upon admission. Legacy students, student-athletes, and students of higher socioeconomic status have been shown to compose a disproportionately high percentage of the Early applicant pool. And despite the fact that fewer than a sixth of applicants applied early, Early Decision admits made up over 55% of Penn’s Class of 2021.
