University of Pennsylvania Graduate Reviews

30 reviews
The campus is beautiful and peaceful: green lawns, trees, brick buildings and walkways, and statues. The food on campus is pretty good, and there are plenty of restaurants and cafes to choose from. Your experience at the University of Pennsylvania will absolutely depend on the school and department you attend. From my experience, the administrative side of attending the school is challenging at times. Financial aid doesn't always alert students to new processes prior to them occurring, causing confusion and delays in refunds. I did receive a generous grant from the school, so that was a huge plus.

I'm only rating my own overall experience and it doesn't necessarily reflect the university as a whole; your experience will vary depending on your individual academic department. There are some great, wonderful ones and there are some toxic dumpster fires. Talk to the grad students & adjuncts and make sure you're not being courted by one of the terrible ones.
Getting through Penn is a huge accomplishment. It is highly competitive and stressful, mostly because of the Wharton School mindset seems to permeate to the other colleges as well. Mental health is a huge issue for many students and it seems like many students are not getting adequately treated. The school does have a lot of resources for students compared to other schools. There are support systems and great professors if you know where to look.
