Unlocking UPenn: Your Roadmap to Application Success

Set in the city of Philadelphia, where both American democracy and the Philly cheesesteak were born, University of Pennsylvania is a hub of academic innovation and diverse majors.

This Ivy League powerhouse attracts minds as diverse as the food trucks scattered across Philadelphia. At UPenn, one moment you can be debating complex economic theories with classmates and the next you’re witnessing an impromptu jazz performance in Rittenhouse Square. A UPenn education is a blend of academic rigor, cultural richness, and yes, perhaps a cheesesteak or two.


Student population and Top Majors

At UPenn, there’s no such thing as an average student – they come from all walks of life, every corner of the globe, bringing with them diverse backgrounds, unique experiences, and a shared passion for learning. With over 10,000 undergraduate students, the university is a melting pot of cultures, perspectives, and ideas.

There are more than 90 majors spread across its four schools, all adding their own distinctive notes to the grand symphony of academia here.

Wharton School, the first collegiate business school, plays the bold bass notes, leading with majors in Finance, Marketing, and Real Estate. The School of Engineering and Applied Science chimes in with Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering. Meanwhile, the School of Arts and Sciences flutters with the melodies of Biological Sciences and Psychology. And not to be outdone, the School of Nursing, one of the top in the country, adds its harmonious refrains with the Health & Nursing major.

Application and Acceptances

University of Pensylvannia’s Admissions Office receives tens of thousands of applications each year, yet their acceptance rate plays a challenging game of limbo – just how low can it go, bobbing within single digits.

To impress UPenn’s admissions officers, you’ll need more than just a stellar GPA and an impressive array of extracurriculars. You’ll need to showcase the unique aspects of your personality, the driving forces behind your aspirations, and the tangible impact you plan to make within the Penn community.

In other words, if the application process is a talent show, don’t just sing – belt out a power ballad while doing cartwheels. It’s time to pull out all the stops and let them see the real, and extraordinary, you.


Navigating the UPenn essay prompts is kind of like playing a game of Twister – it can tie you in knots if you’re not prepared, but with the right moves, you’ll remain standing while your competition topples. Here are some universal tips:

  • Be Specific: The game of Twister isn’t won by making vague, sweeping gestures. Similarly, your essays should focus on specific aspects of UPenn that appeal to you, rather than broad, generic statements.
  • Understand the Penn Values: UPenn has a strong commitment to interdisciplinary studies and actively encourages its students to take on a holistic approach to learning. If you can show that you too value a multidisciplinary perspective in your essays, you’ll score points in their books.
  • Show Your Passion: It’s not enough to merely want to attend UPenn; you need to show you’re passionate about the opportunities you’ll have as a student there. This means detailing why you’re drawn to your chosen major or program and how it aligns with your future goals.
  • Demonstrate Your Contribution: Just like in Twister, everyone has a part to play. Your essays should indicate what unique contribution you can make to the UPenn community, whether it’s leadership, community involvement, or a particular talent or perspective.
