However, particular events along the way have proved Buddhism the most influential aspect of my life to date, and not in the spiritual way one would assume. In a sense, Buddhism has shaped my identity, changing my intellectual understanding of the world forever. It is a rare privilege for an...

Whether it is because of affluence, race, or sex, inequality has been an incrimination of the human race - and it still is in 2014. ...

Honestly if financial problems are a deterrent for applying to Penn (yes, it's expensive, around 62k/year), then you don't have to worry about the cost. Penn's financial aid is EXTREMELY generous. How do I know? Let me tell you a story. Upon getting my acceptance letter, I was extremely happy - up to the point until I opened my financial aid. It read, "You are not eligible for financial...
