Penn v. Princeton?


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone - interested in what folks perceive as the relative strengths and weaknesses of each (and no need to emphasize the city vs. suburb piece - I'm already well-aware of that). Thanks in advance for any thoughts/feedback as I grapple...

From my primitive searches, it looks like Princeton has better placement at top universities. Obviously a higher US News ranking. A potential advisor at one of the schools I'm looking at went to princeton and said they tend to cut you off (funding-wise) after 5 years. Something to check on for both schools.

Also, I spoke to a soc faculty member yesterday that said Penn HAD a reputation for being an unhappy department, but he said this was a while ago. I'm waitlisted at Penn and a faculty member I have been talking to said the graduate program isn't quite as organized as others.

Go visit.
