    I really want to attend Penn because you go there, and judging by your obvious coolness, I would love for us to be friends.

    cuz i b nerdy
    seriously, though, the people are awesome, the school is awesome, the place is awesome, what more could you want?
  • neobezneobez Posts: 801Registered User Member
    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?

    awesome is also rather a subjective assessment.

    what's your definition of awesome?
  • VicunaVicuna Posts: 81Registered User Junior Member
    Your presence is enough.
  • collegenowcollegenow Posts: 214Registered User Junior Member
    i admit, awesome is rather sujective, but its my opinion, so why should it be objective?
    awesome- what i like
    neobez, i read stuff on the website, the awesomness i inferred.

    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?

    I think one word is sufficient: Wharton
  • tenebrousfiretenebrousfire Posts: 2,531Registered User Senior Member
    what about wharton?

    a name is just a name unless there's something to back it up.
  • collegenowcollegenow Posts: 214Registered User Junior Member
    tenebrousfire, the name is enough
  • tenebrousfiretenebrousfire Posts: 2,531Registered User Senior Member
    i'm simply asking for more specific reasons.

    otherwise the answer to this thread's question would be that penn's name is enough...

    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.

    Honestly, heres what I want:

    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.
  • tenebrousfiretenebrousfire Posts: 2,531Registered User Senior Member
    haha, i'm asking in order to get the prospective / applying students to think of specific reasons that really appeal to them...

    i don't particularly need new reasons from other people, i already go here and have plenty of my own =)
