What impressed you positively?

"The school is very wealthy, and they treat their graduate students very well (as opposed to their undergrad students). For example, the school provides breakfast to the med students before every exam and a snack afterwards. Also, the curriculum is pretty sweet. It compels the students to be laid back. In fact, Penn students have the reputation of being the most laid back students of all the med students in Philly." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"For some reason, Penn students don't have a very high match rate. I'm not sure why this is so. I'm a student always looking a step ahead, and something like this is somewhat significant. Penn would be my first choice if the students were a bit more succesful." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I knew the schools was rich, but I couldn't believe my eyes when I actually saw it. Ask your tour guide to see the new gym they built! If you're a workout bum like me, your jaw will hit the ground...I promise." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Great school! Very impressive what a bit of money can do! If only they were slightly more successful with their match rate! Still...Penn is a (not the) top choice of mine. Anyone would be very happy to be there. " Report Response
