What are your general comments?

"We were given a video introduction to the school then a 1st year student took us on a tour. Since i had an early interview at their Hahneman campus, i had to catch a shuttle to the city and missed the end of the tour. When i came back, i had lunch with a student who interviewed me at the same time. He then showed me around and answered all of my questions. Other than the faculty interview, the day was pretty relaxed and everyone at Drexel as well as the other students being interviewed were really friendly." Report Response
