"The school seemed very student oriented. The tour guide addressed some interesting topics that now I wish I had heard about at other interviews- how are students taught to do genital exams (by an area advocacy group); what happens to cadavers (all parts are preserved with the body in a special bucket for small bits then a Philly-wide memorial service takes place).

What are your general comments?

"I don't love Drexel but I would go there. My faculty interviewer said it didn't matter where I went to med school because they were all the same. My student interview was kind of pointless. They guy was nice but talked about himself a lot. It was nice to do the interview on a Saturday so I hope for y'alls sake Drexel continues to do that. Overall, everyone was nice. The school was decent but definitely a I-didn't-get-in-anywhere-else kind of school. That is not to say that Drexel is a bad place to go- it has many redeeming qualities. " Report Response
