It is not competitive to get into DrexelJan 19 2014Civil Engineering
It is not competitive to get into Drexel. Drexel accepts many students and give them bucks (yeah, but the amount they have to pay is still too expensive) every year, but they don't really have a plan to educate them.
ACT: 28 SAT: 2100 Female
SAT, Perfect essay and TOEFLDec 17 2013Mechanical Engineering
SAT, Perfect essay and TOEFL. Had a constant contact with a representative to make sure it is a perfect college for me.
SAT: 2400 Female
It is very complicated to transfer hereOct 31 2013Electrical Engineering
It is very complicated to transfer here. There are lots of hoops to jump through and a tight schedule to follow. I had to sit through TWO interviews because the first time I was waiting on my grades to come through for my last semester at CC. They take your FULL academic history. If you went to two universities before transferring to Drexel it all gets averaged together.

Good luck.

I worked hard in high schoolMay 24 2013Engineering Department
I worked hard in high school. I applied to 15 different schools including NYU, Boston University, Villanova, Rensselaer Polytechnic, etc. and got into all of them. I chose Drexel because of the co-op program and the ability to do a 5 year BS/MS program.
ACT: 35 SAT: 2040 Male
I didn't do anything particularly special besides take theFeb 10 2013Mechanical Engineering
I didn't do anything particularly special besides take the ACT, SAT, and filled out an early application. Just note that freshmen housing is really tight right now, so you may be with 2 other people in your freshman dorm room. Also, visit Philly and see if you like it.
ACT: 31 SAT: 1900 Male
