What are your general comments?

"The interview experience was great. 80% of interviewees get in, so that is nice to know. There is a lot of debt that you will acquire if you attend U Penn so be prepared. U Penn's turn-over for students entering the specialized programs is through the roof!! They are an outstanding school if you are willing to sacrifice the 4 years of stress and discomfort."
