After seeing the election results, as much as Michelle Obama’s presence at Penn may have helped the Democratic ticket, it may have stung just a little too.
Penn could implement need-blind admission for international students if it really wanted to. All it would need to do is roll back no-loan financial aid.

It’s up to us to appreciate the power and recognize the pitfalls of our deepening digital footprint.

If you ever needed more proof that lives are decided by popular opinion then look no further than the current state of federally funded embryonic stem cell research in this country.
