What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel was my number one choice since day one. I absolutely love it, there is always something to do. Whether on campus or in the heart of Philly, you'll never be bored. Explore the city and all the school has to offer! A very diverse school regarding the people and the academics.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel University is far too expensive, and it isn't worth the money. This school is not good enough to cost as much as it does. It also uses a quarter system which sucks. They try to cram too many exams and projects into only eight weeklong terms, so you are constantly struggling to keep up with everything. You'd do better to save yourself some money and go somewhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel University is a big university that has a lot of students enrolled. Because of the large student body, some of the professors do not have enough time for all of the students. The professors are generally accessible, but most of the time, there are too many students who need help and the professors do not have enough time for everyone so some students are left behind. In terms of academics, the university is very rigorous and the quarter system is tough. Drexel's extracurriculars are subpar at best and there is not a lot fo advertisement or incentives for the students to join clubs or sports.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Not only is Drexel University one of the top schools in the nation, it is also a top school for nursing. I have had the best experiences with my instructors and professors, who are at the top of their professional status. The school is very involved in the community, as well as participating in efforts of justice and fairness within various people groups. One thing that stands out for me is the dedication to help those in need. For instance, I have learned through attending Drexel, that they have a nurse managed clinic that provides care to the under served and impoverished. This means so much to me because that is a goal of mine when I graduate as a FNP and the very education I am receiving is from a university with a heart for the very goals I have in mind.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel is a good school just very expensive in which I am seeking assistance now however the school overall is very good and the fact that Drexel gives students the option to work online or on campus is very helpful for full time people who have children and also work full time. It allows people to still get the education that they want in order to make the money that they want so that they too can be successful. Another aspect that I like about Drexel is the communication system is very good as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I took classes mostly online at Drexel University Online shortly after it was established. I had the most fabulous professors who were either readily available by telephone or responded quickly to emails. The other students in the class were very supportive as well. We not only had posted webinars and class discussion pages but we also had live classrooms a few times a semester. This was a positive experience for interacting with my peers. I enjoyed the course work and learned more than I thought I would.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel University is a very good school, but it is harder than most people anticipate. Drexel accepts 75% of applicants, but many people drop out because of the rigorous education and insane tuition. Our graduation rate is about 68%, and I am not sure if I will be able to afford the entire 4 years. Unfortunately, the tuition starts at $70k, not including housing/food, but I think they are continuing to raise the prices. I love Drexel, but my estimated cost for my sophmore year is above $90k including room/board. I am currently applying for a bunch of scholarships because otherwise, I do not know how to pay for this crazy cost. Drexel will rob you blind, but it is a good education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel is a school that is rated highly and has a great location. The academics are almost ivy league as we share professors with the University of Pennsylvania. The campus is 3 blocks from center city Philadelphia making it easy i=to find something new to do every day. Drexel has a 10-week quarter system that makes each term go by very fast so it is important to stay on top of things.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Life at Drexel will keep you busy. The 10-week terms go by in the blink of an eye, and oftentimes you're learning everything that you would learn in a semester at a regular school. There are tons of clubs and activities, and I know very few people who aren't involved in at least one thing outside of class. Co-op is probably the main reason that everyone decides on Drexel, and you won't regret those experiences. You'll hear people working at big-name companies like PWC, Google, and Boeing. There are also a ton of opportunities to go abroad, whether that's an exchange program for a term, an Intensive Course Abroad for a week or two between terms, or going away for co-op. There are plenty of opportunities for research with professors or at the Academy of Natural Sciences. We're also right next to Penn and plenty of students will utilize their resources as well. The area outside of campus can be unsafe and we definitely get our share of DrexelAlerts, but I don't feel any less safe than in other major cities. Overall, Drexel is a great school and if it weren't for my experiences here, I wouldn't have a great job for co-op or the leg-up for grad school. I would definitely recommend the Drexel Experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Drexel University is the perfect city school. It has a lot of night life and is close to University of Penn to offer college campus life as well. While it is definitely insanely expensive, the school has a lot to offer. The academic terms are 10 weeks long and so it is important that you are able to work in a fast pace. Their greatest attribute is COOP which allows students to gain work experience and get paid while still studying which is a huge strength career wise. The campus feels very safe despite being located in a city. Overall, I would recommend Drexel to any student who enjoys city life and fast paced academics.
