    Thank you! That was really encouraging and helpful! I was starting to think about the cost for upenn too since I'm out of state and still have loans to pay. Are you in the primary pediatrics NP program? I'm just guessing because of your username. If so, how is it? I want to pursue PNP too!

    Thanks mewei. Apparently my phone abbreviated that email and only showed me the first half. Definitely helpful to read the whole thing!

    hi tanya! i am indeed in the PNP program, and it's awesome! i've loved all of my peds classes, and the professors are very open to connecting me and providing me with outside opportunities. upenn is a private school, so your costs as an out of state student are no different than if you are in-state. feel free to PM me with more questions.

    also as an overall FYI there's a pretty high interview offer rate. i think around 70% of applicants get offered an interview. it's the admissions offer spot that is pretty competitive. i think it's around a 20-25% acceptance rate after the interview.
