Sorry if this has been asked previously - is a car completely unnecessary in Philly?

Definitely seemed like it at ASW. I wouldn't want a car living there.

Yeah, no need to get one unless you really dislike public transportation.

I just received my finaid package and I was surprised to find that fin aid actually exist outside of HYS.

Just curious, has anyone received merit award notifications yet? Does it come after Fin-aid, or if you didnt get it with Fin-aid you dont get any?

1L at Penn here.

I've lived in the city for a significant number of years and have a large amount of knowledge about the law school and the city in general if you guys have questions.

Also, there is no reason to be afraid to keep your car here. In all my time in the city, I've parked around Penn's campus without any problems. I've also parked in very, very bad areas that you guys will likely never even go to and had no problems there either. The area around Penn and Drexel is very well protected and despite the fact it may look scary to people that are not familiar with such an urban environment, I can assure you that it is extremely safe.

So, bring your cars if you have them. There's a lot you can do around Philly if you have a car and all your classmates will think you're a total badass if you can drive your group of friends places.

Was finding an apartment that had a parking option difficult/expensive?

No. Anywhere in University City you can find a free parking spot on the street relatively close to or sometimes even actually in front of your apartment. Living in center city means $200/mo. for parking though.

Does anyone know whether the April 10 "Scholarship Deadline" applies to general "Dean's Scholarship" awards -- or is that strictly for Levys and Wilsons?

Personally, I like that they are taking their time to find a new dean. It's a great opportunity to push the school forward, and I'm sure the position will be highly coveted.

Interim Deans are pretty common when an old one leaves.

Just a plain blue Penn law shirt with "class of 2017" on the arm and the penn law goat on the back. Nothing special
