Drew is easy to get intoAug 10 2013Art & Design Department
Drew is easy to get into. If you have a pulse, you will get into Drew.

To get in try to get good grades andFeb 24 2013Economics
To get in try to get good grades and be a well-rounded person. Its not because you have to join clubs or anything, but it just lines you up with the school's structure. Seeing things and doing stuff outside of your normal day to day can only help. Good luck.

Drew is an easy school to get into, andAug 26 2012English
Drew is an easy school to get into, and this means that it is not selective. For some, its a reach school, but not many. Drew has a problem, because they are desperate for students. They will take most students with a B- average. Years ago, the school was more competitive (not much more) and now they are taking anyone who has a pulse. I would not go to a school like this unless you are a blah student who is attracted to the idea of going to a school like Drew which looks impressive but is a fake waste of an institution. Don't waste your money and be fooled by this institution. Its not a good school. Save your money and devote you energy to a school which is worth your time.

MY ADVICE: If you have the money(family or scholarships)Nov 13 2011Other
MY ADVICE: If you have the money(family or scholarships) you can come to Drew. BUT do not take out MORE than $10,000 in loans or out of pocket to pay their tuition. Go to another CHEAPER school. It't not worth the price tag of $56,000

If you are a good student, Drew is notApr 03 2011Chemistry
If you are a good student, Drew is not that hard to get into. The school is SAT optional, and for the most part, does not admit students based on athletics or legacy. Drew is mostly interested in your high school grades, difficulty of your high school courses, and your desire to be at a small liberal arts college.

The bigger issue for most students is affording Drew. The school is very expensive ($52,500 per year). Full academic scholarships no longer exist, but there are scholarships for academics, the arts, civic participation, and for minorities. Something like 97% of students receive some type of financial aid or scholarship, but be warned that the net cost (after receiving aid) for a typical student from a middle class family will $30,000 to $40,000 per year.
