Benefits of attending an Intro to Penn program?

<p>Penn is holding an "Introduction to Pennsylvania" program in my local area next week and I was just wondering how beneficial it would be to attend. Does it help your chances at all of getting in? (ie the regional director might remember you when you submit an app)</p>

<p>You'd be surprised at what they track. I'm not sure if Penn does this, but I know some schools open up a folder for you as soon as you make any contact with the school (email an advisor, request an app, go to a meeting, take a tour, etc). and keep a running tab to gauge your interest level. </p>

<p>Bottom line, it couldn't hurt, and it's a good way to learn about the school.</p>

<p>It will help you in the sense that you will learn more about Penn. As far as an actual admissions decision it will have no impact.</p>

<p>Curious about it?</p>
