What are your general comments?

"I was not into Penn at all until it got to the interview aspect. There's a talk from a faculty member and financial aid info, then the tour and lunch. During all of it, I was not loving how great everyone thought they were. Lots of cocky attitudes. So I wasn't loving Penn by the time I got to my interviews in the afternoon. I somehow lucked into the world's nicest and most interesting faculty and student interviewers. Great rapport, great conversation, no stress. All around wonderful. I left Penn thinking about it differently than I had upon arrival." Report Response
