Will my lifestyle as a premed be a lot better at a place like Brown or are there better resources at Penn that are worth it?
I cannot speak to being a pre-med at Brown, but I can talk about Penn.
There are a lot of resources for pre-med students at Penn such as dedicated advising and online resources. With a science major, a pre-med schedule is certainly easier given that some of the requirements (if not most) will be covered by the major itself. However, with a non-science major, that becomes more difficult. There are also plenty of research and medical volunteering opportunities, you just have to look around and take advantage of them.
tl;dr Yes, Penn has a lot of opportunities for a pre-med. Effort required.
