What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn State University is an amazing school from both an academic and campus life perspective. The Academic outlook on the school is something you'd find at the highest level of education and the campus is something straight from a movie. There is never a dull moment when visiting Penn State

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I like Penn a lot. The academics and the professors are wonderful. The social life, not so much. People tend to study a lot and tend to be very, very busy. There's a joke on campus: "let's do lunch!" but the joke is that lunch never happens because everyone is over scheduled. Otherwise, if you're here to learn, you will do that. You will be very, very happy with what you learn, the variety of classes and the level of instruction.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Pennsylvania is truly a magical place to be. From the moment that you walk onto Campus, you can feel the energy and power that big things are happening there. Thriving in the heart of a huge, liberal and metropolitan City, the student experience and overall quality of life mixed with the unparalleled teachings offered by some of the brightest minds the Country has to offer makes for the most surreal and memorable time of your life.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn's pre-professionalism is one of the most important aspects of it and generally one of the most oft-discussed things about it, which is both a blessing and a curse. Though it's a very good school, the pressure to ensure that you have a good, lucrative path ahead after graduations weighs down heavily on you -- particularly if you aren't doing something that's considered incredibly productive, such as Engineering or Wharton. This is ironic because Penn has amazing programs across many, many subjects, but these are often not discussed whatsoever. Being in the humanities and pursuing theater is an incredible niche group. Perhaps finding this niche group can be a benefit, and certainly, the pressure to get a job after college encourages students to keep on applying for internships, part-time jobs, or other opportunities. However, this cutthroat nature -- which spreads across into extracurriculars, including various consulting clubs which are considered the "elite" clubs which, of course, set you up for a good career after college via networking and work experience -- gets tiring. Finding your group is key to keeping your head above water with that, the intense academics, and the rigor of everyone around you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a very welcoming and friendly environment. There are so many extracurriculars that you can join or try out that you will not feel like you don't fit in anywhere. There is always something for you to join and explore and philly is a great city with lots of places you can explore and visit.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn is an amazing school that will help you pursue your career interests and passions. There are plenty of opportunities for you to meet your classmates and professors outside of class, but students do have to be determined and take initiative in order to get the full benefits of Penn. While Penn prepares you well for the future, the workload can be intense and stressful.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn lives up to its reputation of being an amazing academic institution. Students can find fascinating courses in whatever topic they could be interested in. Although it can at times be competitive and an academically rigorous place, you’re still easily capable of making friends with various interests and backgrounds. I love the social scene and the culture of people. Penn is a wonderful place to be and I can’t wait to enjoy the rest of my time here!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love how diverse the University of Pennsylvania is. There is a lot of opportunities to do whatever it is you're into. But you have to know what that is, sometimes this can be daunting and for me personally it makes it really hard to find a solid group of friends at Penn. Then I realized I don't need a group of people who all know each other in order to have a group I just need to let my friends be my friends and surprisingly their overlaps have happened naturally.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Absolutely love this place, highly recommend. The ability to create your own narrative/future is rare amongst universities. Penn empowers students to chase their dreams and question the status quo. There is no better blend within the Ivy League of academics and social life.
