Obviously they were rolling out the red carpet, but they did an excellent job of selling their school simply by showing what is amazing about it.
Way to go Penn...I think anyone with Penn as an option would be wise to give it complete consideration.
It appears I might have had a sip of the kool aid, but I do still have those rose-colored asw glasses on, so take it with a mid-sized grain of salt.
ED'er here, so take my experience with a large handful of salt, but I was also very impressed with Penn's ASW. After listening to all of the panels, I was blown away by how many programs and how much resources are available for such a small class - e.g. I think there are enough slots for everyone interested to be on a journal and get into their top choice of clinic. And despite all the posturing, I think there is something to the whole collegiality thing. All of the current students and new admits I talked to were really nice and easy to get along with. All in all, this weekend made me incredibly happy with my choice to ED to Penn, and I already can't wait to catch up with everyone in the fall!
