Alright so I realize this is ridiculously early but who cares - I'm freaking pumped. Plus I figure once more ED people start hearing there'll be a bit more interest, even if Penn gets a bad rap on this board.
My sister and I are going down to University City tomorrow (the neighborhood UPenn is in, if you're not familiar with Philly) to check out the scene and see how far north/west we can go before we get mugged. I know we shouldn't be looking for apartments until like May, but scoping out the area isn't too creepy, right? There's also a great bubble tea place nearby, which I'm sure we'll hit up at some point. Even though I won't be 21 until a couple weeks into 1L, it'll still be cool to check out the bar scene as well.
Other future Penn 1Ls and perhaps current 1Ls, feel free to jump in
