What impressed you negatively?

"Facilities seemed small and run down. Staff weren't that nice and students who gave tour/had lunch with us didn't seem to be too happy or very accomodating. Felt crowded at lunch and as if the applicants were just left to figure out their own interview days instead of someone helping them out. I appreciated the independence but would've liked a more structured interview day. My interviewer was nearly an hour late to my interview and he had to interview someone after me as well so things were messy and in a rush. Even the parking/security attendant was unnecessarily mean to me and unhelpful." Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"-have an actual interview packet or something to give to people when they come for an interview. an information booklet or something that they can take home instead of just a few sheets of paper. -make the lunch more organized instead of just directing students to the cafeteria -notify students when they are being offered an interview immediately, instead of waiting however many weeks to send an email and leaving it up to them to check their portal every day I understand that Drexel receives a lot of applications but their admissions & interview process needs a lot of work."
