What Makes UPenn Unique?
As a rising senior, I have begun the exciting yet stressful process of applying for colleges. After compiling an extensive list of universities(UPenn being a top choice), I am trying to narrow the options down to 6 or 7 schools. This way, I will be able to concentrate my efforts on a relatively selective few while also diversifying my chances. However, I have had a difficult time narrowing down my choices. Thus, I turn to the CC community for advice.
I recently visited Penn's campus over spring break, attended the admission tours, and sat in on a class(FNCE 101: Monetary Economics & the Global Economy). Several things about Penn really drew me in, such as the beautiful campus, its location in Philadelphia, the Wharton School of Business, the balance of a practical education with liberal arts, etc. However, I would like to pose a question directly to current students and alumni: What makes Penn unique when compared to other universities(other than the examples I gave), and what specifically about the school do/did you love the most? Any perspectives, especially ones speckled with personal anecdotes or experiences, would be greatly appreciated.
