What was the most difficult question?

"Why didn't you get into med school the last time you applied?" Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read this site, as well as Drexel's website." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The student body is really nice and motivated. But without a doubt, the curriculum is truly unique. While I am not a fan of the small group approach in PIL, it definitely is unique. I was really impressed with IFM curriuculum, and how the material is really integrated together so that you don't study one subject in a vacuum. Also, the facilities are really high tech." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"MCP Hospital closing definitely gave me a moment of pause. However, I have heard that they have already set up alternate training sites for students, so I don't think it will be big deal down the road." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"There are no real clinics directly next to the campus. The campus is just for classes, nothing else." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"You interview with about 15 other people. One interview is one-on-one with a facutly member (open file), and the other is with a student over lunch. Overall, the experience is really nice, although some of the student interviewers didn't seem to really be interested in the process. Also, Drexel does interview A LOT of people, so you definitely sometimes feel like a number. Overall though, the school is great. I will be attending this fall." Report Response
