vicuna most people aren't as cool as me so your reason is not valid. If you came here you would realize that just judging by one really cool person like myself would leave you disappointed with the student population
and collegenow how do you know all that? did you read it on the penn website?
My dad really wants me to go to Cornell (where he went), my sister wants me to go to Dartmouth (where she goes), and I want to go to Penn because:
a) they have great programs in both biology and cinema studies
b) no one I know or anyone from my family has ever gone to Penn
c) it's far enough away from where I live so that I don't feel completely suffocated (buffer zone, anyone?)
d) even at the risk of sounding "subjective," I believe it to be awesome
e) er, all of the above?

Reason: needed a few more reasons
the Penn Symphony Orchestra! and Penn's bountiful resources/facilities.
"Social Ivy". That should give you a clue about the people at Penn.
Mucho diversity, as well, although I'm underrepresented. The fact that you can still have fun while people know you attend a very good school.
1) Business program: awesome <-- subjective? haha. business + liberal arts + prestige = awesome.
2) Intellectual atmosphere, but not the "nerdy" kind. People seem to know how to have fun.
3) Philly, not in the middle of nowhere, not in the middle of the city, just perfect.
4) # of students: not as big as UT Austin where you are just one more, but not few enough that you can't find people with similar personalities & interests.
