What impressed you positively?

"The location is not as bad as some people claim it is. It's certainly not a "ghetto", but if you go deeper into West Philly it gets a little shady. The environment is very collegiate (lots of restaurants, cafes and young people) and I like the fact that the undergrad campus and the graduate schools are all in one area. The students seem to have social lives." Report Response
