Is the Penn Visit worth to attend?

    @rhandco Does admissions track who comes for the campus tours? If that is the case then, my brother and I ( twins) might be at a disadvantage. When we went up with our parents, we bypassed the campus tour altogether. Since both of us are interested in dual programs, we were able to meet and attend various classes with current students. Needless to say we were impressed with the classes and information from their respective programs! In our case it definitely helped both of us make our choice UPENN! Both of us will be applying ED in 2015!

    Thanks for all who have posted and exchanged great information!!

    if it's a college you are really considering attending, I would visit just to see if you like the campus. Since it is in Philly, the area is sort of loud but the campus itself is pretty and traditional looking. The visit alone is basically walking around and looking at the buildings while the tour guide (who btw goes there) talks about what a normal class would look like, how it is to live there, what to expect, etc.
    I wanted to apply to the college but ended up not liking the campus that much so now I probably won't apply.
    Hope this helps!

    I wasn't too sure about applying to Penn before, but after a visit to Penn on a cold, rainy day, I still fell in love with it. it's still my dream school

    Yes and no. Yes because, the campus is absolutely magnificent. It's its own world within Philadelphia, the architecture throughout is enchanting.

    No, because you will fall in love with the school, and a rejection letter will be that much more painful. (cries)

    Seriously though, yes visit..the campus is lovely, and worth the trip.
