So I visited Penn Friday, and I have to say I was shocked
by how friendly people were. I mean, there was a pretty snooty Penn undergrad in our group, but the law students were sooo nice. One guy came up to me after the torts class and was all "Hey were you just in there? Did you like it? Yeah awesome. Good luck!" Really cute guy too
The torts class was an insurance kind of emphasis and I loved it. Very engaging, students seemed interested in the topic, the professor seemed cool. I mean I know they put the tour groups in the great classes but still, pretty sweet.
The building felt very safe, seeing as there are security guards at both entrances and you have to show ID to get in, or show a license and sign on a sheet why you're there. It didn't seem like there were any crappy classrooms, but rather they had an "updated" feel, even though they were a bit chilly. They showed us some lockers in the basement area of the building where 1Ls get their own space (like elementary school cubbies, one might say!) and told us they're really useful considering how many books 1Ls have to drag around. One of the 1Ls said the graduate housing is a bit old and dilapidated, but what are you going to do.
Overall, I'm definitely
glad I applied there, and it's still at the top of my list.
Any Penn people find fault with this brief analysis?
