What impressed you positively?

"All the students were awesome and open. They were into making the process as least stressful as possible and that was paralleled by the staff. Drexel seems very accessible to students. I think that it is rarely anyone's first choice, but it should be. They are tech savvy and their PIL program is amazing (look up the PIL program, they have reason to be proud of it). Also, they are attracted to the non-traditional student." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The safety around the area. Although it seems ok, some students warned me about parking. The student areas (cafeteria, gym, lounge) could use some work, but they are building a new one. Not that much negativity to talk about..." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They don't provide breakfast - bring a SNACK and a water bottle. That you should get CLEAR, detailed directions and always stay with a student host if you can. Parking costs $5 and check in with the guard when you show up." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The faculty interview was relaxed. It was more like a conversation. The student interview was even more relaxed. Overall, the admissions committee wants you to have a positive experience and they do a good job." Report Response
