Here's an update: Went on the interview, I don't think I did so well. I was very nervous and I know I answered the research question inappropriately. Praying they saw past the nerves ( being interviewed by 4 people is new to me). How long did it take for UPenn to get back to the interviewed?

about 4 weeks I think. And with interviews you never know. I had one job interview and thought that I did stellar, we branched off on so many different topics, he fed into it by whipping out research that he was doing, .. it just so happen that I had done a pseudo-research capstone project in college on that same exact topic and to present it to hospital board,... so we had lots to talk about.... did not get the job. Every other interview that i've been on in life,... lil to alot nervous, doubted that I did well... always got the job/position/admission. Its just one of those things...

Congrats on getting in to U Penn. I got accepted to Drexel. I'm not too familiar with the area but I think U Penn and Drexel are very near each other. I'm also looking for cheap apartment as well. The school has grad dorm for only $900/month with all utilities included but the rooms are only 10" x 10". That's really small but the dorms are located right across the street from the school. The only issue that remains is parking. They charge so much to park in Philly.

Ok Update: I did not get in. I had the feeling I didn't when I left the interview, so it wasn't surprising. However, I have another interview, so experience is now on my side. Congrats to all who got in!!!

really sorry to hear that. Don't let that get you worried and nervous about your next interview. Like you said, just use it as an experience.

Yeah drexel is actually very close by. Not even a 5 minute drive. And you're right. Parking is ridiculous!! I've been so spoiled by having a car for so many years, unless you wanna spend all that extra cash, we might have to look into public transportation,.. at least some of the days.

I haven't even started looking at apartments or neighborhoods yet.
