I've been hearing a lot of stuff about the culture and social scene at penn. after visiting, I realized that I met an alarming amount of people who came across as utterly pretentious - the type of people who would think others are beneath them because they're not as rich or don't go to as good of a school.
Altogether, this has me really worried. I had really liked the school, especially the huntsman program, but I don't want to go to a school in which students are closed-minded, arrogant, or pompous people who don't accept others, regardless of the prestige or good job prospects.
Is my experience an anomaly? I want to attend a school that has a community fell where people accept one another rather than looking down on others. If Penn isn't that school than regardless of prestige I simple can't see myself attending here.
