ditto on the great time...so far, the only other school ive visited is umich...def liked penn/philly better than umich/ann arbor...in fact, i would be shocked if i like any of the other schools ill be visiting as much as penn...it seemed like i place i could def feel at home...the students were great...not just the self-selected post admis committee, but the students i met randomly out and about were all very helpful and down to earth...they (and many of the admits) seemed like the sort of people I would normally associate with......and maybe more importantly, they all seemed to genuinely love the school...ditto the professors...plus, philly doesnt seem like an overly expensive place to live...hmmm...sans money, i have a feeling penn might be my first choice...i really cant think of anything i didnt like...stupid money
