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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The worst institution I've ever attended. They will mess up your financial aid package on a weekly basis. Most professors are a bit cold and aren't that interested in out of classroom conversations unless you look like them and or share other life experiences with them. The campus is hideous. The students are entitled. I'm not really learning much and I'm paying a lot of money. If you are disabled do not come here. If you are low income I also suggest you choose another school that will be more supportive. I transferred to Penn from UCLA and I feel like I made one of the hugest mistakes of my life. It feels like I'm serving a prison sentence. There is a reason why there is a high suicide rate here at this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UPenn is a wonderful place for those academically motivated and seeking to learn at the highest possible level. I have been attending UPenn for two years now and I can with confidence say it had been the worst two years of my life. My first day I was walking into the freshmen dorms and I walked into a toile that was cemented to the sidewalk. I broke my foot and lie there for half an hour until somebody came to my aid. When they did they simply took a video of it for snapchat and kept walking. My phone had no service due to the absolutely terrible reception on campus. After that though it got much better. The toilet was removed and my foot healed. But not before I got my nickname, "Larry the Limp". Not much better. UPenn students are mean and always make fun of my height. I'm really not that short if you think about it, 4'10 is below average for sure but I can still reach most things if I have access to a step ladder. This ties in perfectly to dorm food. I used to say, eat some of that rocket fuel and you will be boosting for the rest of the day. Freshman 15 took on a whole new meaning when I took 15 trips to the bathroom in one day. 10/10 do not recommend. Make sure to pack a lunch if you are coming to school next year. Hope this was helpful, I really love this school and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Shoutout to Ms. Buchannon for helping me get over my fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of my mouth. Hope this was helpful! Smash that upvote.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you are entering medical school, becoming a nurse, conducting research, pursuing a law degree or business degree, want to study abroad and learn a foreign language, work in politics or international relations, this is the school for you. If you can't deal with bureaucracy and administrators who are so focused on their priorities that they fail to recognize the student is their priority, you will struggle with that as much as I have. The experience is different for students fresh out of high school versus graduate students or, like me, non-traditional students. Navigating the system is difficult in a school with something like 25,000 students. The academics are stellar, it is the execution that is a problem. $12 billion endowment and half the outlets in the undergraduate study center of the flagship library don't work? Come on.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Pennsylvania caters to my needs. I thought that the school would be hard, but my first economics class was amazing! The campus is also very beautiful, it feels almost as if I am in Harry Potter. The walk between classes is a bit long though.
