What impressed you positively?

What impressed you negatively?

"The small size of the school, isolated location in suburbs." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Bring a book. I was lucky to have a morning interview, but others had to wait a long time in between their faculty and student interviews." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"All in all, I had a good time while interviewing at Drexel. I wasn't blown away by anything in particular, but I also didn't find any large problems with the school. I can see myself being comfortable here. If you want a busy, bustling urban school with a lot of things to do, then this is NOT the school for you. But if you want a solid education and don't mind its suburban location, then I think you would be happy here." Report Response
