What are your general comments?

"I was not particularly impressed with Drexel, although I think I came away with the interview feeling that it wouldn't be a bad place to go to school. There were 15 people interviewing the day I went, and all said their interviews went very well, and were really easy. I was the only one that had my particular interviewer, and he wasn't Drexel Faculty. He was kind of cold and very hard to talk to, and spent a lot of time looking for problems with my application. I also felt very rushed during the interview, like there wasn't enough time to get out all I needed to say before he would go on to the next question." Report Response
