For my major, I had to submit a portfolioMay 20 2011Other
For my major, I had to submit a portfolio of my work. With the help of one of my high school music teachers, I put together a very-carefully crafted portfolio that showed a wide range of my musical talent. Make sure that everything you submit if professional and showcases your best aspects.
I applied through the free application process to beMay 13 2011Political Science
I applied through the free application process to be considered an early action applicant, which was a very simple process. I sent in my standardized test scores and my high school transcript. I achieved a 3.74 cumulative GPA in high school. My first quarter I was able to maintain a 3.78 GPA at Drexel. I ended up only applying to Drexel because it was a free application, and after my accepted admissions were sent to me, Drexel was my last option, not necessarily because it was my first choice, but because it was the LEAST undesirable of the schools.

Students should still maintain high GPA levels in both high school and be prepared to do so once attending this university to get in to Drexel, and stay in. Many students are dismissed do to academic probation or academic leave, forcing them to withdrawal from the school.

Visit Drexel's campus BEFORE applying, and at the LEAST, before applying to other schools and waiting for a response on acceptance. This will allow you to establish an unbiased opinion of the space and environment of the school. If you have a friend who goes here, make sure to visit & ask them about their experience, too.

Applied, but told them I had a third partyMay 11 2011Business - Management and Administration
Applied, but told them I had a third party payor that would pay 100% but they still treated me like crap. I would suggest apply somewhere smaller, or more organized and efficient.
I have a 2Apr 05 2011Undecided
I have a 2.6 GPA at a competitive prep school all regular classes but a 1800/2400 on my SAT's. Lots of volunteer work, my sister went there, great essay, showed interest by interviews and calling, I'm captain of 2 sports at my high school, and I've worked at my dad's medical practice doing insurance billing for the past 2 years for a few hours a day after school.

Also, if you feel like your borderline, apply to the school like the day before the deadline. I feel like early on if your borderline that they judge too quickly, but once they realize how many students aren't going to attend Drexel that were accepted, they loosen up a bit.

Good luck and come here. don't be socially awkward and you'll be fine.
SAT: 1800 Male
