What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you have the opportunity to go to Penn and are interested in a school that will help you post graduation (besides memories) I would say go. The name alone will get you so many opportunities and so much respect. I do think Penn has a hard time supporting all of its students, especially those that come from schools that did not stress academics or if you're a first generation college student. Still, there are just so many paths available and resources here. If you want to do something business related, political, or health related, I would say 100% penn is a great option. The engineering is pretty good too (although there are probably better schools for that).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I personally am not a big fan so far. I attended for a semester, and frankly I found the preprofessional atmosphere suffocating. I'm not sure what people mean when they say that Penn is the 'social ivy' because most people seem socially awkward and, if not that, intent on social climbing.

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?

The University of Pennsylvania is honestly the best place to be! It was my first choice, and I am so lucky to go here. There are so many opportunities that come with being a student here. Additionally, ​there are tons of resources and activities that students get to be a part of! Definitely pick Penn!

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.
