A quick definition of U.S.:

U.S. is short for United States, which is a country in North America. It is also used as an abbreviation for United States Reports, which is a collection of court cases decided by the Supreme Court of the United States.

A more thorough explanation:

U.S.

U.S. is an abbreviation that can stand for two things:

  1. United States: This refers to the country located in North America, consisting of 50 states and various territories. For example, "I am a citizen of the U.S."
  2. UNITED STATES REPORTS: This refers to a series of books that contain the official opinions of the Supreme Court of the United States. For example, "The case was published in volume 500 of the U.S. Reports."

Examples:

  • "I am proud to be from the U.S."
  • "The U.S. Reports are an important resource for lawyers and judges."

The first example illustrates the use of U.S. to refer to the country. The second example illustrates the use of U.S. to refer to the series of books containing Supreme Court opinions.

@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
