What was the most interesting question?

"The faculty interviewers questions were all personal in nature, intended to examine specific aspects of my application. The most interesting being what I would do for my community if I became a physician. The student interview was odd, my interviewer appeared quite shy, and I asked most of the question." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"Why have you taken so many classes in college? -I am a non-traditional student who basically started over as a premed after majoring in political studies for three years." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Browsed the Drexel website. Read up in the journals. Did a lexis-nexis search for articles about Drexel and by doctors who taught at Drexel. Reviewed my application." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The curriculum provides ample clinical experience right off the bat. The campus really focuses on training outstanding clinicians. The students were extremely friendly. I was approached on at least five different occasions by students offering advise, answering questions and chearing me on. The technology on campus is the most impressive of any medical school that I have visited. Center city is only a twenty minute train ride away, but Germantown and Maynuck offer exciting entertainment options much closer to the campus. Very affordable housing options near campus, with the opportunity to live in Center City or Pittsburgh during the third and fourth year." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Not much. The size of the library is indeed small, as I am sure you have already read, but none of the students I talked too seemed to feel that it negatively impacted them. Students have access to the library at the University City and Center City campuses of Drexel's other campuses. The one thing that did bother me is the fact that MCP hospital is closing (it was were I had my interview) and that clinical sites are spread throughout the state." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"What a great place Drexel is. I came expecting the worse and left totally converted." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Drexel Med was my first interview experience and might as well been my last. I have been offered an acceptance and I am taking it. I have been accepted at more prestigious schools, but I feel that they can not offer me the educational opportunities that Drexel can. " Report Response
