ik both schools i will 99.99% not get into but applying because i dont currently have an ed1 school in mind so my parents just said to shoot to the moon, so here are the 2 im choosing between. here are the current pros and cons i have in mind for each, plz correct me if wrong and any advice is appreciated!
intended major: neuroscience / child studies
i understand both schools are basically the same academically (for my major?), amazing opps, won’t be easy, i will likely suffer from imposter syndrome, but will def go if i get in.
- pros: less competitive/more collaborative, amazingg weather, closer to home
- cons: quarter system, ruralness, surrounding area expensive
- pros: more opportunities like for premed (more urban area, which i really love), cheaper surrounding area, im also a very indecisive person so seems better for interdisciplinary (& maybe interested in entering business, so penn good for that)
- cons: way more competitive/cutthroat bc of its preprofessionality, more people seem lonely, weather (im spoiled by socal weather), far from home (im a family-oriented person and will appreciate seeing my family v often)
