I have been working at University of Pennsylvania part-time for less than a year

Pros

The professors are great to work with. I work in a group of doctoral students and I do the same caliber of work that they do. Professors are very receptive to your input, which is refreshing because I know that is not necessarily the same at other institutions.

Cons

I wish Penn better integrated other disciplines. All they claim to try to integrate knowledge and even have endowed professorships through the "Penn Integrates Knowledge", with the four schools I still find Penn academically decentralized.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

To structure both graduate and undergraduate curriculum to where there is more interdisciplinary learning within all 12 schools.
