    I loved my time at the University of Pennsylvania, and I would not give it up for the world. It truly was a unique experience so please prospective students, take advantage of this amazing opportunity. Feel proud to be a Quaker!

    It's expensive living in a city but there are many chain restaurants in the area where you can get food at a decent cost. Sales tax is also 8% in PA.

    It's expensive. If you're goal is to graduate with a high-paying job to compensate you for your investment, you have a good chance of doing that at Penn. With On-Campus Recruitment and the connections available, one can graduate with a hefty starting salary. If you're not looking to roll in dough, but rather to come away from your undergraduate experience having learned more than you could have ever imagined, made wonderful friends, traveled the world through grant-funded research trips, and created a new home for yourself, your Penn investment will also prove to be worth the hard work.
