What are your general comments?

"I signed in at the front desk and was later esocrted to the Admissions Office by the security guard. As I waited in conference room with the other interviewees, I watched our group grow and grow to a number of 14. Apparently Drexel interviews many people every day of the week. We watched a presentation on the school (history, curriculum, clubs...) and then went on a tour of the school. I then had a thirty minute faculty interview. Consider yourselves lucky if you get Donna Antonucci!! That interview was immediately followed by a student interview. Of the two interviews, however, I must say that the student one was a bit more awkward. Student interviews are conducted in the cafeteria as the two of you are eating which makes for an ''interesting'' interview. The day ends with an optional presentation on the PIL curriculum. Overall, it was a good experience. Not stressful at all." Report Response
