Students who believe that the top factor in choosing a college should be the prestige of its name should not attend University of Pennsylvania. I believe that prestige of a university should be a factor, although certainly not the only or most heavily-weighted factor in choosing a college. Deciding where to go for college or graduate school is an important decision, and there are many factors involved that can make it a wonderful and enriching experience, or something that is totally intolerable and difficult. People make decisions based on the "prestige" of something all the time--from picking handbags or cars, to vacation spots and neighborhoods. But choosing something based on how important it sounds to other people is not a sustainable or responsible way of making choices. Certainly there are reasons behind University of Pennsylvania being a prestigious university. So what are they? If students cannot articulate the reasons beyond the prestige of a school, it indicates that they are being taught to value the brand name of an institution over the quality and character that make up that prestige.

As described above, this is not a glamorous profession. It is extremely taxing emotionally and physically, so students must really be dedicated to the cause and most of all care for what they are doing. Anyone who is not willing to make sacrifices or care for their clients should not attend.

Students who are not prepared to work hard and commit to their education should not attend the University of Pennsylvania, because college is a very arduous task.
