Who's the man!

<p>After waitlested for WashUrdishes, and rejected from MITit, and didn’t receive any good signs from other schools I have applied to in past 2 months, then miracles happened in the last day of admission process. After got rejected from both Columbia and Harvard (who cares about this school), I finally got into both JHU and Cornell, best of all UPENN (what a unexpected gift from God)…</p>

<p>Althouh Cornell still remains as my top choice in my heart, but my parent would probably force me to go to upenn anyway.</p>

<p>Ques: which of these three has the better engineering school and has good business major also?</p>

<p>you can dual with wharton at penn</p>

<p>I posted this thread in cornell board also, for comparing the engineering school in these three college. Most opinions from Cornell people are sugesting me to go to cornell if i wanna to major in engineering. Is SEAS in UPENN that bad, or just their bias opinions...and talk more about the one in JHU.</p>

<p>I originally applied jerome fisher prog, but didn't get in and they put me in the engineering, so is seas good? Thanx</p>

<p>Honestly, SEAS at UPenn isn't the best in the country.. I belive it's ranked about 20 overall now. (It also depends on your major.. some majors such as Bioengineering and nanotech stuff are top of hte line here)</p>

<p>however, you have to take into account more than just the program.. you have to think about the entire experience.. no matter which of those schools you go to you will come out with a wonderful degree and a well paying job, but it really needs to come down to where you're going to be happiest for the next 4 year.</p>

<p>I'm SEAS by the way, so if you have any specific questions, i'd be happy to answer them.</p>

<p>Penn's business program is better than Cornell's, but if your interest/projected career is definitely going to be engineering, Cornell's engineering is definitely better than Penn's. Not to say that Penn SEAS is bad, cause it isn't at all: just that Cornell is ranked top 5, and is generallly considered #1 in Ivy league for their engineering program. That's one of the programs they're known for (along with hotel admin, I think?).<br>
My opinion is that, since Cornell is your first choice, you seriously consider it and do your best to convince your parents. Being happy, with no regrets, is much better than second-guessing and feeling forced if it comes to that.</p>

<p>i am also in SEAS, and i can say that penn has a pretty good engineering school. it isn't ranked higher than it currently is because of its relatively small size. it is top-notch in several areas, including, as mentioned by mnasy1122, bioengineering, materials science, and nanotech. they are currently building a new bioengineering facility with a nanotech facility to follow in the next few years.</p>

<p>i c, thanx for the replying...I guess I have to visit them first to find out:)</p>

<p>I chose penn materials science (in seas) over uiuc materials science (which is ranked #1 in the us) cause penn is better than uiuc (except in basketball)...</p>

<p>Megamike, I had a similar experience.. I chose Penn CS over Carnegie Mellon which has hte #1 comp sci program in the country.. but Penn was just soo much more appealing overall..</p>
