Not yet. I've definitely been on the lookout for it.

If I have a roomie I definitely want to live with another Wharton student. As for having a car in Philly, I think it really depends on where you're living. I currently live in the suburbs. There is a bus stop in front of my house as well as a train station about a 10 minute walk from my house. I still have a car because it's faster than PT from the burbs. If you're planning on living in the city then I don't think you really need a car to get around. Parking in Philly is horrible unless you have a permit or pay for a spot in a lot.
On the other hand if you're a person who likes to explore an area and/or likes to get out of town then a car is definitely a convenient inconvenience if that makes sense.


Thanks for the info! I'd rather keep my car, not having one was not a great experience in undergrad.
As far as housing goes, so far I don't see much of a difference in price between getting a studio and getting a roommate.

During Welcome Weekend I asked everyone and their momma about bringing a car to school. I am pretty determined to make it work because my car is paid off and I have friends/family in NY that I want to go see without having to take a bus (not a fan of buses).

Has anyone received a welcome package yet? Every other school I know sends something, but from Wharton so far, I've only received the print out of the acceptance letter. Nothing else.

I don't think Wharton sends a welcome package. I waited for weeks for it to arrive before I finally figured it out. Kind of disappointing. Opening welcome packages is one of the best parts of the application process.

With the most electives of any business school, at Wharton you are able to focus on a specialty, or pursue a wider overview across many subjects.
