Personal Story

"I was happily surprised when I got into Penn. I wasn't really expecting too much when I applied and when I actually got in, it was pretty awesome."

Useful Advice

"I'm not sure. I don't that that I did anything too special during my application, but one thing I remember doing a lot was spending a lot of time on my essay.

My only advice would be to spend as much time as possible on the essay because that's the only thing which actually distinguishes you from other applicants."
