    The University of Pennsylvania is a school of opportunity, and is only as good as you make it. I loved it with all my heart, because I let it take my breath away every moment as I walked down the beautiful Locust Walk to my classes, dorms, or to meet with friends. It can be challenging at times because of the academic rigor and competition, but the relationships you form with the amazing people around you can get you through it!

    UPENN is a beautiful, historical, campus with a very friendly administration that genuinely cares about their students, even their prospective students. The school dedicates itself to staying at the head of innovative learning and research. I have never been more impressed with a school before.

    Penn, as Quakers call it, is a large school in terms of numbers, but it's easy to feel at home on campus. Penn is welcoming and diverse, and despite the vastness of the University, it's very easy to find your niche thanks to Penn's great extracurricular environment. Penn is the whole package: social life, fulfilling extracurriculars and leadership opportunities, a great city, and rigorous academics.

    Penn is timelessly beautiful and historic by nature. It provides me with a quality education recognized anywhere and everywhere, not simply a degree. The opportunities are endless, no matter what your area of interest.

    It is a great place for those who are socially intelligent, ambitious, and extremely brilliant. You will find a great mix of people from all backgrounds who will truly influence your experience along the way. Finally, though the faculty can be a mixed bag, the amazing ones are truly top notch.
