    It's in a perfect location even though it's kind of in the city. You can't even ell you're in a city and this helps because you don't get sucked into the city life of Phily. The campus is so historic and beautiful.

    Penn has a lot of opportunities academically and socially which I absolutely love. As most colleges are, you get a mix of both good and bad teachers based on how you learn best, but there are always tutors, friends, TAs, and office hours there to help. I have always been a pretty average student, and I don't find the classes to be too difficult, so don't worry about it!

    The campus is absolutely beautiful! I've seen bits and pieces of the area, and for someone from the middle of nowhere, UPenn was nothing like I expected. Very pleased with what I saw, and hopefully I'll end up at this beautiful university.

    I rate UPenn at a 10 out of 10, I love my school and everything about it. I think what really makes us great is the oppurtunity to have a well rounded education so critical thinking is put at the center of all classes. In addition it is a beautiful campus with much history.

    All students have high academic standards. Everyone tries to think 5 years ahead and gets involved in everything freshman fall. If you want a life without a moment to catch your breath, Penn is the right place for you.

    UPenn has a beautiful campus, in the city. It has many attractive features such as a flexible curriculum and key connections in many fields. The students seem involved and not as cutthroat as other Ivy League students.

    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!
