Anonymous Parent Hates On Penn


As a part of The Washington Post's new College Tour '10 series, parents and students summarize their campus touring experiences to be published in the Voices section. Oh sweet, we thought, another opportunity to hear how awesome Penn is. But as we read on, we were like, wait what? This parent totally hates us!

The anonymous submission says, "They talk a lot about the [renowned] business school, Wharton, on the general tour. They take you inside the building. It put us off." While we can see how Wharton could be scary, we think the inside of Huntsman hall is kinda purty!

The hater went on to mention, "The other thing about Penn is that the admissions officer and tour guide talked a lot about being in the Ivy League. Nobody at the other Ivy League schools we visited did that." Okay, we can see that. It's kind of necessary though, since people tend to forget!

In the end, you can't please everyone. Disgruntled parent, we're so very sorry.
