What will you major in/study? Undecided
Why did you choose school? “I chose this school for a variety of reasons. First of all the academics is second to none, which is the most important part. The next aspect that drew me to this school was the outstanding lacrosse program that they have on the rise. Along with that was the coaching staff who I thought were all excellent. All of this accompanied by a great city of Philadelphia makes Penn a dream school.”
