    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at University of Pennsylvania.

    Interview

    I was able to interview virtually for the first portion, answering 5 questions. Next, I was invited to an on-campus interview, one-to-one, with an Assistant Dean. It was very warm, professional, and easy to ascertain UPENN culture.
