"Needless to say, I was very impressed with Penn upon interviewing there (see my super-long positive impression list below). The faculty did a wonderful job of welcoming us to the university, which is a big change from some of the other east-coast schools I've interviewed at. Despite the long day, I came out drooling and saying "mmmmmm, Penn". Best interview experience ever" Report Response
