That Hopkins name is so hard to turn down, but Penn is incredible. 95% @ Penn but want to get some feedback whether or not ppl think I'm crazy.

1) i doubt the answers you'll get here will be any different from those you got in your old thread
2) gotta make your own decision. go to revisits, consider financial aid, and ultimately choose where you'll be happy. the slight difference in prestige is likely irrelevant for residency placement - students at both schools do very well for themselves.

no one will think you're crazy or really care. just go to what you feel more comfortable. and penn could give you $, which would make it a no brainer

You're definitely not crazy. If you felt like you were a better fit at Penn/in Philily and the only thing holding you back from Penn is the "name-brand" of Hopkins, go to Penn.

I seriously doubt that going to Hopkins magically opens doors that Penn wouldn't.

there are a ton of people in my class who chose Penn over Hopkins. I'm loving it at Penn, and I think most of my class feels the same way.

I'm pretty sure I would take Penn over Hopkins, especially if they gave me money.

It just seems that everyone likes it there so much.
