What are your general comments?

"I stayed at the Bank Street Hostel, near 2nd and Market, so I got up early and left at 7. I got to the interview 30 min. early. The dean of admissions gave a good power point presentation and took questions. She painted Drexel as a school made for educating doctors, as opposed to other school that brag about their research. The tour was given by a student who splits her time between Texas and Philly-she watches the lectures online while away! The facilities were nice and quite modern. I had my first interview with a first year over lunch. He appeared truly interested in what I had to say and we had a good conversation. My second interview was with the director of admissions. The questions were pretty standard and she participated as much as I did. Overall I was impressed with Drexel. The two options of curriculum allow students to choose how they want to learn. I even like the fact that the school is situated away from downtown Philly. It has a quieter and more serene environment than the center city campus." Report Response
