What impressed you positively?

"One of the things that impressed me was the cheap rent for apartments in the area surrounding the campus. The fact that the entire medical campus has wireless internet access and the ability to watch all the lectures on-line also impressed me much." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tuition cost negatively impressed me, but then again the cost of tuition to any medical school would probably negatively impress me. One other thing that negatively impressed me was the fact that Drexel was not taking anymore acceptances at the time of my interview. I have to wait until May 15 (6 to 8 weeks) for any decision." Report Response

"Nothing, really took me by surprise. This website prepared me for anything that would take place on interview day." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"My day started off with an information session, followed by a tour of the campus. My tour was cut short because I was the only one in the group who had to go off campus for an interview. My faculty interview was great. My interviewer made me feel completely comfortable. When I came back from my faculty interview, I had a student interview which was also great because it was completely informal and my interviewer was a very relaxed person. I jsut wish that I could've changed into something more comfortable for the student interview (it was that relaxed!)." Report Response
