 Seth Shapiro: Penn attracts Smart, Ambitious and Friendly Students.

Seth Shapiro graduated from the University of Pennsylvania (“Penn”) with a Bachelor’s degree in Economics.

Seth first became interested in when a close family friend had gotten in Early Decision.

Knowing her to be smart and accomplished, he put Penn on his short list.

In 9th Grade he attended the Penn Model Congress Conference where he stayed on the Penn campus for 4 days. Seth came away impressed by the intimate urban environment, the intellect of the Penn students who ran the conference, and the overall ambience.

When he went on a Penn campus tour in his junior year, he was sold. 

Seth then decided to spend a few days on campus in the fall of his senior year before he pushed the submit button for Early Decision.

In our Podcast with Seth, we discuss this and other stories about Penn:

  • High School Interests
  • Classes at Penn
  • Summer Internships
  • Student Government Leadership
  • Advice to Aspiring Penn Students

If you are college-bound, this Podcast is a must listen to be inspired and motivated about your own future.
