I went to undergrad near Penn, and didn't like the personality or aura of the campus, mainly because I felt like everyone there was constantly judging me for not going to Penn, even if I showed up riding the twin shoulders of the Pope and Gandhi handing out free hundred dollar bills with the secret to cold fusion taped to them.

Can a real Penn student convince me that I was wrong?

We respect all students and the institutions they choose to attend.  Penn students are extremely proud of our status as an elite school.  We aren't stuck up or prone to judge, we are just proud.  Hopefully that helps.

Also, Penn is located in the middle of the eastern seaboard so our graduates place in the most important markets. 

And here is where this becomes the worst flame ever.

Not sure what you have against Penn, but I'm on board. A drearier place I have not been.

I've heard the dreary comment a few times so I will address this.  I believe that the "dreary" feeling is typical of an elite institution.  It may feel dreary but I feel that the abundence of scholarship taking place lets off a certain feeling.

Goalie, we've actually talked on this board before.  I'm posting anonymously so that I can give a truthful view of how things really are.  With all due respect, I can see why you don't feel that Ivy status and history are important (It is hard to think that while attending Boalt  Since you actually turned down Ivy schools to attend Boalt). 

fixt.

I realize that Goalie got into some great schools (Boalt itself is a fine institution).  However, I'm just stating that Penn's Ivy status and history put it at a certain level.

I question the judgement of someone who turns down superior schools to attend a school where they "fit" better.  I think I speak for most Penn students when I say that we chose Penn for the prestige.

If you would like to talk history, what of Penn being the oldest university in the country?  That level of prestige is unmatched by no school out of the top six.

Hmmm..why does the fact that Penn is the oldest "university" make it more prestigious than all the other T6 schools?

(Full disclosure: Penn rejected me. So did Boalt.)
