What impressed you positively?

"UPenn is a world-class medical school. Student/Faculty camaraderie, excellent location (if you like Philly), the health system at Penn is ostensibly very well endowed, and somehow Penn does a good job of recruiting smart, humble, hard working, fun students. Fourth years chill. " Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I held Penn in very high regard before interviewing so some of the current students seemed peevish and immature even though I'm sure they had immaculate resumes. Students mentioned an inner ivy league envy from Penn for schools like Harvard, Yale, and Columbia even though they have no real reason to be envious. Biomedical sciences library is not up to par with the rest of the facilities. Students bad-mouthed other Philly schools. Admissions does a thorough job of repping the school but it comes off forced/desperate. " Report Response
