What are your general comments?

"It seems to me that the interviews were more for students to get to know Penn than for Penn to get to know us. I don't know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. In both interviews I had, the interviewers spent more than half the time talking about how much they love Penn. My faculty interviewer was particularly friendly. He told me about places to go in Philly (i'm from Cali) and where to eat. He even drew me a map of how to get to all the famous Philly cheese steak places! How cool is that!" Report Response
