A quick definition of count:

Count: A count is a way to describe a reason why someone might be in trouble with the law. It's like a separate problem that needs to be solved. For example, if someone is accused of hurting someone else, there might be two counts - one for hurting them and one for touching them without permission.

A more thorough explanation:

Count

Count refers to a specific accusation or charge in a legal case. It is a cause of action in civil cases or an offense in criminal cases. Each lawsuit can involve multiple counts in which someone can be held liable.

In a criminal case, a defendant may face multiple counts of different crimes. For example, a person accused of robbery may face counts of theft, assault, and possession of a weapon.

In a civil case, a plaintiff may bring multiple counts against a defendant. For example, a person injured in a car accident may bring counts of negligence, recklessness, and intentional harm against the driver who caused the accident.

These examples illustrate how a count is a specific accusation or charge in a legal case. Each count represents a separate offense or cause of action that must be proven in court.

@OptimisticOutlier That sounds terrible, I'm sorry you had to experience that lol. Can I ask what made you feel uncomfortable? Like the sketchy vibes of the city or like the camp\us itself etc.?

campus
penn is in a nice area
right next to drexel
it was campus itself, honestly i can't explain what it actually is. I felt the same way when I was touring schools for undergrad, pretty much pulled up to upenn and told my mom i knew i didn't like it and didn't need to take the tour lol
would argue with the nice area piece lol i think all of philly is kinda scary, someone pulled a gun on my team while we were down for a football game at upenn and walking around at night
but that said, i'm pretty happy i moved to pa after school and i know lots of people love upenn!
dear god is that sketchy
definetly safer than how its being described
people are absolutely crwzy
yeah yeah will 10000% agree i've had like bad outlier experiences lol
