What are your general comments?

"Overall the interviews were very laid back. My faculty interviewer was a sweet lady who asked me very broad questions (I was able to talk about whatever I wanted). She was very encouraging during the interview, always giving me reaffirming comments saying "This is good, real good." I got along really well with my student interviewer. We had a fun conversation, and we just talked and talked for a hour. The choice of curriculum is unique to Drexel, but I could see people getting depressed here because there is nothing to do around campus. Overall, if accepted, I would definitely come to this school." Report Response
