What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn is a great school academically. There is a wide range of people that attend, and it is definitely a great place to be if you want to meet people from different backgrounds. The classes are difficult, but being able to graduate from this school will open so many doors that it is worth it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

A hard school to get into, even harder to succeed when you get there. Exceptionally beautiful to cover the anxiety that lurks under the surface. The mask, "Penn-face" we call it, is alive and well. It lives up to the Ivy League name. (Wait, Penn State-- I mean UPenn-- is an Ivy?) Sigh, yeah.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Pennsylvania is a great place to make dedicated and ambitious friends. One of the best resources are connections you'll make, many which can lead to internships, entrepreneurship, or fellowships. Sometimes it feels as if there are too many opportunities available and you might feel as if you are the only one not making use of all of them. But it's very important to remember that there are so many departments dedicated to helping students make use of all of the on and off campus opportunities, in a very balanced way. Overall the school has a fantastic faculty and responsive alumni base. There have been many renown speakers that came to Penn last fall. The city of Philadelphia is lively but not over crowded. It is a very nice campus for those who have never lived in a big urban area. There are great restaurants and there is always something going on during the weekends. Lastly there are plenty work opportunities for students who plan to work during school to supplement school fees or just to have some extra pocket change.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UPenn has a very pre-professional, driven student culture. We truly work hard and play hard. Cons: the administration is not very popular among the student body for various reasons; Greek life is often a very heavy presence on campus. Pros: lovely campus; accessibility to downtown Philadelphia; the student body is diverse and open, if cliquish.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Penn is a prestigious university that offers many diverse fields and career paths. There's a great student-to-faculty ratio and students can find plenty of mentors on campus. On-campus housing ifs very comfortable and clean. Off-campus housing is also accessible and decent. There are also many cultural spaces where people can find safe communities. The campus is beautifully located in West Philadelphia, just a short distance away from the bustling city life. The campus is also surrounded by many different types of restaurants and cafes, with some of the best ones being located on campus. Penn is a great place for both business majors and liberal arts majors alike. There's something here for everyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Pennsylvania is a wonderful college for the independent and focused student. Many students here know what they want to do and pursue it full force; the passion and drive of the student body is both contagious and motivating. However, if you're unsure of what you'd like to pursue, you might find Penn overwhelming. The number and availability of opportunities - both academic and extracurricular - are endless, and they are complemented by world-class programs, research facilities, and academics that are readily accessible and either on or close to campus. Socially, the large student body allows for a variety of many different personalities. Whether you're someone looking to join a fraternity and go out every night or someone who likes to keep to himself, their exists a sphere in the Penn social scene for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Pennsylvania will help me grow because of the many opportunities it can offer me. I normally describe myself as being a conservative, reserved person. In recent years, however, I find myself becoming increasingly tolerant, liberal in my outlook, and open to most kinds of change. When I visited University of Pennsylvania earlier this year, I realized immediately that it would be a very strong match for me. Our tour guide mentioned that University of Pennsylvania is not only accepting to change, but also welcomes it. I see this as a significant advantage for me, someone who is in the exciting process of increasing self-discovery. By attending University of Pennsylvania, I will be able to take a huge step forward in nurturing my emerging character. Being able to tolerate change and personal uniqueness among others is a positive trait, in my opinion, and I’m certain that University of Pennsylvania will help shape and expand my way of thinking about who and what I am now and what I will become in the future. University of Pennsylvania will also help me attain my future goals. I am interested in having a career in the field of International Relation and University of Pennsylvania offers outstanding program in this field. I have a wide range of interests, from dance to foreign languages. I want to continue my pursuits in most, if not all, of them. University of Pennsylvania will help me grow because of the many opportunities it can offer me.
