Aside from "don't come here", if you get anNov 11 2009Economics
Aside from "don't come here", if you get an 1150, you'll get in. If you get a 1300 or so (it varies a little depending on your major), you'll get into Pennoni. The essay is a formality. You'll also probably get a scholarship, but, really, don't be fooled. It's sad to waste this life when you only go through it once.

I graduated high school with about a 3May 14 2009Communications
I graduated high school with about a 3.0. Colleges like to see improvement, so if you weren't active in anything freshman year of high school and had horrible grades, a steady increase in grades and becoming more active looks good. Also a good essay. It's generally pretty easy to get into Drexel though, it tends to be a back-up/safety school which is why most students aren't too attached to the school itself.
SAT: 1100 Female

Doesn't matter- you don't want to get in - move on and find a school that won't give you headaches so you can concentrate on your studies.

I had a killer portfolio for the music industryFeb 24 2009Other
I had a killer portfolio for the music industry program so have that fleshed out very well. Also the higher your testing scores the higher your scholarship. My GPA in high school wasn't so hot but my ACT scores were alright and I got a nice scholarship.
ACT: 30 Male
