What impressed you positively?

"The friendliness of the staff and students, how relaxed and happy the students were, the location (just outside Philly, very close to Fairmount Park), the PIL curriculum; Drexel is very wired with many resources available on-line and they have a wireless network; At the end of the year they have a memorial service for the cadavers." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The facilities are a bit on the old side." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"You have to take a shuttle to your faculty interview- not a terribly big deal but it would've been nice to be forewarned. Drexel has an interesting history which you will learn during the info session. Also, third and fourth year rotations are done all over PA and NJ. It allows for a broad experience, but you will have to travel and in many cases be assigned housing at that facility. I would recommend staying for the PIL presentation. It is definitely worth it, be prepared for an inspiring presentation!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day was very relaxed and enjoyable. The staff is super-friendly and they give you a great tour. Be prepared to have to take a shuttle to your faculty interview. After this you will have lunch with your student interviewer. And the day ends with the PIL presentation which is optional, but well worth the time. " Report Response
