What was the most interesting question?

"All the questions were pretty basic, about items on my application and my ideal career. The student interviewer asked me a lot about what I want in a medical school and sold me on Drexel." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"My interview was with the dean of admissions, and she asked me a big block of questions all at the beginning and then let me basically give a monologue to answer them all." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"I read over my application, Drexel's website, and this website." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The facilities are BEAUTIFUL, and there's going to be a new building with a big student center complete before the class of 2010 gets there. Their curriculum looks really good, like they have really put a lot of thought into making the learning pleasant, fun, and memorable -- especially the PBL track -- and I just don't know why Drexel has such a mediocre reputation. Despite what other people have said on this website, the school is not far away from Philadelphia, in fact it is in the city (just not downtown), and the night after my interview my cousin took me to a really nice neighborhood nearby with a hopping nightlife." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The neighborhood around the school is relatively poor, but nothing like the neighborhood I live in now (in Oakland -- yay) so I wasn't bothered by it." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"About half of Drexel's students are from California. The lecture curriculum (you can choose between a lecture curriculum and PBL) is symptom-based and is a fairly new curriculum. It looks really good, even though I would go for PBL myself." Report Response
