Would it be fair to say that between Penn and Northwestern, Penn is clearly the stronger school? Or is it close? Chicago is an amazing city, so if the two schools are comparable that might be a hard decision.
NU definitely holds its own in placement power despite being a bit lower ranked, but I would bet a lot of this has to do with their preference for w/e. Someone said at one point that it would suck to be one of the few people at NU without w/e when doing interviews at OCI because everybody else has w/e. That makes sense but I am not sure exactly how true it is.
Earlier there was a post of the numbers for people accepted at NU that didn't have w/e and usually they were 175+, iirc.
I would say due to lack of w/e that you have a better shot at UPenn.
