College of the Day: University of Pennsylvania
Founded by Benjamin Franklin, the University of Pennsylvania is now the largest of the Ivy League colleges at about 20,000 students - about the same size as Towson. Penn is located in center city Philadelphia, giving it an old city feel like Georgetown University. Because it is an Ivy League college, and with an admission rate of about 10%, getting admitted is improbable, even for the most qualified student. UPenn would be a reach for anyone, and has earned its competitive status by providing such a high quality education.
