What are your general comments?

"The day felt a bit amateur; the financial aid talk was the admissions staffwoman saying "I don't know anything about financial aid. call this # if you have questions." Also the student interviews are in the cafeteria at lunchtime, so it's not really a formal interview. All in all, Drexel seems fine, but it certainly lacks some of the research opportunities I've seen elsewhere. Also, you don't get to see the hospital unless you interview there." Report Response
