What impressed you positively?

"They have two curricula, and the people in the PIL curriculum seem really excited to be learning that way (in problem based classes)." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour guide seemed unhappy with her time at Drexel. Also, in general, the students didn't seem that friendly or excited. My faculty interviewer worked in student affairs and didn't ask me much besides the basics. For most of the interview, she told me how impressive my MCAT scores are or how great my GPA is. I do have solid stats, but I'm not a 4.0, 45 or anything. It seemed like they were a little too impressed with me." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Drexel is in a suburban, boring location. They don't even have a coffee shop to go to in the evenings." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Drexel has a really great program (two curricula, emphasis in women's health), but it doesn't seem to attract the students it needs to become a really great school. You would get a solid education there, but I'm not going to go there." Report Response
