What impressed you positively?

"So many things! 1.The faculty is very dedicated, which can be seen from the style and structure of the medical curriculum at Drexel. 2. Compassionate and kind physicians---my interviewer is such one. 3. Innnovative curriculum and excellent modules. IFM fits my learning style well, and I like the sympton-based approach of learning. 4. No use of live animal in the lab. I like that because I do not want to do harm to sentient beings. 5. Excellent opportunities for community sevices: downtown is about 30 min drive. 6. Friendly students and relaxed interview. They really want to know things about you. 7. The medical school is just one building. All the lectures will be taught in one big building. " Report Response

"It is cold in Philly. However, weather is not that important for me. What is important is whether the school teaches me so that I will become a good and competent doctor." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really. I prepared a lot. Only one tip: if you have to catch the plane back to other places, you may want to make reservation (the earlier the better) for shuttle so the shuttle will pick you up at school. I went to airport by cab, because I did not make reservations in advance. " Report Response

"Interview started at around 9am in the morning. The tour was given around 10am. The student interviewer was friendly. I felt like talking to one of my friends. It is very relaxed.
