    I didn't visit philly until I started the program in June. sort of a gamble, but it's a GREAT city!!!!! of course it makes sense to visit beforehand, but totally do what's best for you $$ wise and read up on the city, chat with current students, etc. If you're a city person, you'll like philly I think. West philly to me feels so much like the bay area/oakland/berkeley (like further away from campus, really hits close to home, which is nice. I'm west coast born & raised seattle to bay area).

    Thank you so much for the advice! I have been to philly and I am originally from the east coast so I think if they honestly weigh the phone and in person interview the same I am going to save my pennies and do the phone interview. Hopefully ill be able to do the skype interview that some of you were talking about

    That's great to hear that Philly is similar to Bay Area/Oakland/Berkeley!! I was born and raised in the Bay Area (East bay) and went to school in Berkeley so that sounds awesome. I love the Bay

    Hey Atomicgirl--

    I planning on opting for the in-person interview for psych on December 7th. Where are you planning on staying? How long are you going to be in PA for?

    I'm opting for the in-person interview on Dec. 10th.

    Do any current students know if it's safe to walk from 30th Street Station to the campus? I'm taking a train from Lancaster, PA. Don't know if walking is OK or if I should catch a cab.

    Hey guys! I got my interview invite (YAY!) and I've already booked my flight but I don't have a hotel yet either. I'll be leaving the 6th in the morning and I'm flying out of Philadelphia at 7:30 after the day is complete (kind of nervous because I will need to connect in Atlanta at like 10 PM with only an hour to get from one flight to another, and it'll probably be the last flight out of the night... but I've done it before and it was fine so I'll just hope for the best, lol) but I haven't gotten a hotel yet either. I think I'm going to Priceline it...
    kdiem and hollysf like this.

    Ask Filomena, the admissions director, she should know.

    UPDATE: Expedia has the Westin Philadelphia for $109, about $123 with taxes. It's listed at over 200 on the Westin website!!!! So I booked that, and it's about a mile they said, and you could walk if you wanted, but they said a taxi is better and costs less than $10. They also have a Lady Liberty shuttle that goes from the airport to all the hotels for $10 for a flat fee. Priceline wasn't cooperating, haha.

    CONGRATS!!! See what'd I tell you ;-) What date is your interview? the 7th? I'm staying at a nearby b&b (the gables I think it's called). I've always had great experiences at b&bs and it's usually cheaper than a hotel stay.

    *nevermind about the b&b, I just saw you posted! That's a great price! I paid like $120 for the b&b

    Hey KoKe! I'm staying at the Gables B&B. It's on Chester Ave about a mile away from the nursing school. I'm arriving on the 5th and leaving in the evening on the 7th. How about you??

    Only problem with the Westin is that you have to check out by 12pm or else you get charged for the next day.

    Hopefulnurse24- are you planning on staying until the 8th?

    Atomicgirl - I'm arriving the morning of December 6th, and leaving late Dec. 7th!

    Yeah, that should be fine though because I'm arriving on the 6th in the morning as well, and leaving at 7:30 PM on the 7th. I'll just check out in the morning right when I wake up and I'll bring my luggage with me to the interview, I'm assuming it'll be an all day event anyways.

    Thanks atomicgirl! I'm so excited! I also need to find a suit for my interview, lol...
