WHAT STUDENT’S ARE SAYING

At the University of Pennsylvania, students share an intellectual curiosity and top-notch resources but don’t “buy into the stigma of being an Ivy League school.” Students here are “very passionate about what they do outside the classroom” and the “flexible core requirements.” The university is composed of four undergraduate schools (and “a library for pretty much any topic”). “You can take courses in any of the schools, including graduate-level courses.” Luckily, there’s a vast variety of disciplines available to students: “I can take a course in old Icelandic and even another one about the politics of food,” says a student. Wharton, Penn’s highly regarded, “highly competitive undergraduate business school” attracts “career-oriented” students who don’t mind a “strenuous course load.” There are “more than enough” resources, funding, and opportunity here for any student to take advantage of, and “Penn encourages students to truly take advantage of it all!” Professors can “sometimes seem to be caught up more in their research than their classes,” but all “are incredibly well-versed in their subject (as well as their audience).” If you’re willing to put in the time and effort, your professors “will be happy to reciprocate.” In general, the instructors here are “very challenging academically” and are “always willing to offer their more than relevant life experience in class discussion.”
