What impressed you negatively?

"My student interviewer asked closed-ended questions about what was already provided in the AMCAS application. Although I understand that the student did not have this information because the student interview is closed-file, I personally do not see how asking that type of question would help the admissions committee make a decision regarding my ability to fit in at Drexel."

What are your general comments?

"The day started off with a presentation by the Dean about the history of the school and some of its present highlights. The tour was very thorough, led by a student who definitely had thorough knowledge of the school. He described the service project he did that was required of all students, which sounded interesting. Interviews with faculty are scheduled throuout the day, and then later in the afternoon is a presentation about the PIL curriculum." Report Response
