What are your general comments?

"I think Drexel is a nice place, but the impression that I got was that it is a nice second choice. All the students I talked to said that they choose Drexel because that is that was the only school they got in to. They all seemed happy and balanced, but I wasn't struck by anything that made me think, wow, Drexel is really great. If I wanted to do PIL this would be a great place, the PIL students seem cool, but the IFM seems pretty standard and second-tier. Interview was very friendly and conversational, don't stress about that." Report Response
