What impressed you positively?

"EVERYTHING! Penn is an incredible institution. Their curriculm is very innovative, the students are HAPPY, the faculty and staff are very supportive of the students and encourage students to do what ever they want - this is not a doctor factory, and talk about an endowment. Penn is an innovative institution committed to helping their students be successful and happy. The school offers a plethora of opportunities in research, community service, international medicine, dual degress, and non-medical opportunities (you can take any class at UPenn). This school is very impressive and I would do almost anything to get into the school. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Outstanding. Breakfast and you hear from Gaye and Gail Morrison (they are great!). You sit in on a class, hear about financing your education, and take a tour. Your tour ends for lunch over looking the Philadelphia skyline with other students. You have two interviews (student and faculty) and then they have a rap up...not really informative kind of nice but kind of pointless. It is a long day and be prepared you will be happily zonked afterwards." Report Response
