Don't go unless you really want to be an incredible engineer and even then there are better engineering schools.
SAT: 1220 Male
Just do the typical things to get into collegeSep 16 2008School of Information
Just do the typical things to get into college. Keep your grades up and stuff like that, nothing special. However, you ARE required to have 2 letters of recommendation, one from a teacher and one from a guidance counselor, that might be the most difficult criteria but applying to Drexel was very simple. The SAT scores aren't that important really. I've scored a 1680/2400 which isn't anything to brag about but I was still accepted and my financial aid wasn't bad (but it wasn't great either). I wouldn't recommend this school but if you have your heart set out and you can afford to come here, then by all means go ahead.

I had an interview with an admissions counselor andSep 07 2008Communications
I had an interview with an admissions counselor and *wonderful* advisor Brandon. Overall, be prepared with your resume and transcripts so they can assess your transfer credits and place you in the right program for your needs.

I had to write an essay, just a standardAug 30 2008Engineering Department
I had to write an essay, just a standard essay that most colleges require. I had to supply my sat scores and all the ap scores that I wanted to transfer in.

I recommend that if you want to come to Drexel for engineering, IST, CS, SE, Media/Arts, fashion design, or nurseing, to give Drexel a try. If you are looking for psycology then you are lucky because drexel is the forerunner for research in psycology. If you want to come for a liberal art not mentioned here, then you should probably go somewhere else.
SAT: 1230 Male
