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
