Just don't bother coming here unless your going forJul 26 2010Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
Just don't bother coming here unless your going for business or engineering, most other programs, particularly the college of design, are weak and cant teach you much. You might as well save more money to go to another school with similar programs with same quality education.
Definitely write a Drexel-focused essay on why you wantJul 19 2010Business - Management and Administration
Definitely write a Drexel-focused essay on why you want to go to the school and how the program you are applying to fits into your plans. Go on a campus tour (they keep track)! Apply early and explain any less than stellar academic performance.
SAT: 2000 Male
Not that hard, i have a 3Jun 25 2010Computer Engineering
not that hard, i have a 3.0 high school gpa, came from a good high school, i have the presidents award (100+ hours of community service in 1 calendar year), i would definitely recommend doing this, I got wait listed and eventually got in soon after, so im guessing that my gpa should have been higher, but since I proved to be a good overall person/student/athlete (wrestling). I was also talking to the coach for a while trying to get a scholarship but didnt get it, but I bet that he had something to do with me getting into drexel.
SAT: 1490 Male
DONT DO IT!! I've been to a number ofMay 05 2010Nursing
DONT DO IT!! I've been to a number of state as well as community colleges, and this is by far THE WORST! If I knew what I was getting into before hand, I NEVER would have applied. I wouldnt even suggest it to my enemy.
I participated in everything when I was in highApr 21 2010Other
I participated in everything when I was in high school so when I started applying for college, they knew that I wasn't just a book junky. That got me in to Drexel.
