Wharton Visit

Last weekend I was in Philly going to a high school graduation. Since I was there I figured I better go visit some schools in the area. Turns out the only school I wanted to visit in the area was U. of Penn – Wharton. Obviously Wharton is one of the top schools in the country so I couldn’t waste a visit to Philly and not visit, even though classes are out, but I said what the heck.

First stop was straight to the admissions office to see if maybe there was someone I could talk to. Nope. The receptionist in the MBA office politely told me no you idiot classes are over, sign up for updates on the website, told me applications would be out in August, gave me a map and sent me on my way. I decided to wonder around the Wharton building for a minute and found the marketing department…empty also. Also in this building were a bunch of study rooms and some lecture halls from what I could see.

After I had gotten my map, I decided to walk around the “campus” a little. Mind you that Penn is in downtown Philly so the “campus” I am referring to was like a street area called Locoust Walk, you could walk from one end of campus to the other end of campus, but today there was some construction going on, so I had to walk around. It was there that it actually felt like a traditional campus to me. Coming from Michigan the whole dang city is campus as my bf kindly pointed out so I didn’t know what was going on being all downtown in a big city. It was cool though. I could see myself going to a school in a city, would just take some getting used to which I easily adapt so its fine.

All and I since I couldn’t talk to anyone and had my own little tour, Wharton LOOKS like…from the outside…a great school to consider.

Oh by the way one of the little graduates that I went to see graduate high school is going to Penn. and the other Stanford. Congrats to them!
