When I visited I didn't really realize a few very important things that I will share so you guys also do not have to find out the hard way. Though, I know a lot of you already live in Philly so you may already know or, hopefully, will refute some of this. 1) The financial/admissions individual I spoke with said that it's not a great idea to have a car as it will just be an added expense to take care of parking; 2) the apartments are pretty expensive/ hard to find/ small. I live in NYC/ Queenish area and for less than what I saw last night I get like 1,000 sq ft versus 700 sq ft or less. Does anyone know how much it costs to park at Penn? The adcomm just said that it was expensive but was an option.


good to know. i'm hoping to bring my car up too, although i don't plan to drive it to class. i have friends in DC, Boston and NY, and i want to take road trips. AND i want to be able to drive to get groceries/shop. sadly, i hate public transpo, a side effect of growing up in Houston. so far i think my best option as far as large apt complexes go is 2400 chestnut,




Hmmm that's interesting, I'll definitely have to check that out. Your parking idea also sounds good. I'm also pretty spoiled when it comes to the car and I want to be able to drive home to NYC. Heavenwood aren't you suppose to be there today?where it's $120 per month for parking in a garage and not too far of a walk to campus. it's expensive, but oh so cheap compared to boston

...and i know this is crazy early, but anyone interested in getting a 2BR there? i suppose i'll have to wait til the fbook group is up, sigh


I think there is one, though it is understandably a little underwhelming at 28 group members.

ya i joined that a few days ago, but i thought there would be a group reserved for admitees instead of a page, like last year's: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=178219219855

gonna go check out the admitted students website now!

edit: i'm enjoying the videos with bayrex haha

+1. I'm trying to stalk people (isn't that what FB was invented for?) but can only see 6 members of the page. Lame.

Yeah, someone should let them know they should create a group instead of a page. (Or maybe one of us could create a fb group?)

I just created one. Join! http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_153921794659179#!/home.php?sk=group_153921794659179&ap=1

I needed to add a friend in order to creat it, so my girlfriend is in it for a minute. Now we can actually see each other's profiles!

I think I signed up to call admits and convince them to come to Penn this Spring. God help whichever of you gets the call from me. Last year I made them while shitfaced drunk outside a bar.

I look forward to receiving a call from you then! Any hints? I will make sure to ask you if you had a drink or two if I figure out it's you. Maybe I will just meet you at the bar? :wink:

Hahah. Honestly, if you want to start getting a sense of social life at U Penn, you're welcome to come out with me and some random 3L friends at some point this Spring. It's really not any different from what you're already used to in Philly, though.

You'll know if its me on phone. I'll be the guy who prefaces the pitch with something like "Look, man, heres the fucking deal." I like to keep it classy :mrgreen:

Sure if you don't mind. I have a get a sense of what Penn Law is like before time to make decisions. I have met people from every graduate school except Law. I go to a lot of the GAPSA stuff as long as they have free drinks. I will be on campus 4 days a week, so let me know what going down. Thanks in advance! Meeting and hearing some personal stories from 3Ls will definitely help me decide.

Actually come thing of it I know a couple of 2Ls, they seem to like it but I guess they are not facing job search yet.

Cool. I get back to Philly in about 2 weeks, and I'll try to put together a mix of 3Ls - some with ridiculously awesome job offers and some with none. It'll give you a good cross section. How do you feel about Local 44?

You coming again? :)

I will be in SF visiting Stanford and Berkeley. You should come next week, I am going to go tour the LS and hang out .

I will have Monday/Wed afternoon classes across the street in the spring so if anyone comes to visit and want to hang out let me know. My happy hours place is right between my classes and the law school. Convenient :lol:

Ugh, how inconvenient. Yeah, I'm coming again because I have to drop off my brother's girlfriend who lives right near there since he is going back to school. ;/. I'm sure I'll be back again soon.

Here's the link to the page. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=gro ... 59179&ap=1

And no I've never even been to Philly. That's why I want to visit just to make sure. I actually go to school out in Cali, but I'm ready to make the transition to the East Coast!

That link doesnt work.. At least for me. I think the northeast can be a little bit of a shock. You definitely want to visit and want to visit during the winter. GL!
