What impressed you positively?

"The general feeling of the whole school was very supportive, they are a teaching institution, not really a research center. I am impressed with the two curiculla, and am leaning towrads PIL. I felt the facilities were nice (and large enough) and the whole campus is wireless and has everything online. The new student center was great and added a lot of study room. The neighborhood is just what my wife and I are looking for, outisde the city but close enough (15mins) to go out at night to do things. Oh, and the lunch was good!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

What are your general comments?

"Overall I was very impressed with Drexel. The problem based learning is what I am looking for and they seem to incorporate it well in their curicullum. They are very supportive of families and non-trads and seem to focus on the student more than other schools. The day went well, a short orientation at 9:00am and then interviews started at 10:00. I was first interviewed by a student and then a faculty member. Both were very nice and seemed genuinely interested in me and what I had to say. They didn't grill me in any way but just wanted to know: why I was applying to Drexel, about some of my esperiences, and where I see myself in 10 years. We then had lunch with some of the students, they all seemed happy to be there. Finally we had a tour of the facilities, which I thought were great. Again, overall it was a great experience."
