Ambitious and focused, but willing to have fun and not take everything seriously. Someone who wants a private school within a vibrant city

Honestly, there is no one type of Penn student. There are traits that are more or less consistent; hard-working, ridiculously intelligent, very much overachievers, but if one is willing to put in the work to get into as well as remain here, they will certainly find their place. Having the ability to deal with high levels of stress is imperative, however.

Students come from all ages, locations and walks of life. Something all students share is a desire to learn at an amazing college, and become enriched by the oppertunties afforded to us.

There is so much diversity at Penn, but I'd say all the students are driven, ambitious, eager-to-learn, and friendly. If you have a thirst for knowledge and are willing to work hard, Penn is a great place for you!

Because of the generous financial aid programs at the university, Penn students come from a variety of backgrounds and tend to be more grounded than other Ivy League schools.
