I've always had a positive reaction from potential employers when they hear of my attendance at Penrose. Even more so with my excellent grades and achievements after. I learned so many valuable things at Penrose that I've applied in the field and other areas of my life. I think what stands out the most is something Jill always said: "get comfortable being uncomfortable". Oh man is that the truth! And of course, fierce conversations. Without learning that technique, I would not be where I am today.
