Hi everyone! As the title says, I got into UPenn and UVA as a Jefferson Scholar!
I’m super excited about these, but I’m really not sure which one to choose. I’d really like some advice about what might be a better fit.
For some background, I’m hoping to learn about the importance of science policy in the government. At Penn I’d study Science, Technology, and Society. At UVA I’d hope to study Human Biology.
I’m not really sure what I want to do with a job, or what careers exist for this field.
I have been and would like to continue researching peanut allergies.
I’m not the most athletic person (aka I really don’t like sports) but I know both schools are pretty sporty. I also definitely don’t want to rush.
What are the pros and cons of each school, and would Penn be worth it over the Jefferson Scholarship?
