It's pretty hard to gauge something like this however. If they'd gone to CLS, been miserable, and thereby gotten significantly worse grades - Penn would have still been the right choice. I think it's rather difficult to decide you like/dislike a school over the course of an ASW, but there's a definite argument for allowing "feel" into the equation on some level.
+1. and i haven't seen anything that would suggest that i'd have more opportunities at CLS than at UPenn. they're both great schools. it's what you make of your education. and above posters saying that the difference is so great that they wouldn't even bother applying to Upenn is arrogant and pretentious.
