The school is difficult to deal with. Everything is outsourced. Payment plan, insurance, etc. Everyting must be done on the computer. You can never speak to one person regarding any issue. There are academic advisors, co-op advisors, admissions advisors. If you call about billing they will not speak to you about financial aid. Example, Dining Dollars are different than dragon dollars and are not the same as dining passes??? Dragon dollars can be added by credit card but dining dollars must be added to the academic bill. The school is very expensive and the bills are difficult to comprehend. My daughter is suppose to start the co-op experience in the spring, if it doesnt work out she is leaving the school. Thats another problem, they do not allow you to pick your co-op cycle. Because of the academic cycle credits may not be easily transferred. Academically good school, but a headache

Drexel has wide variety of education. Once you get in you can pick whatever you like. From medical to Computers to the most famous Engineering. And like everyone else said Co-op. I am actually going to be entering this university and cant wait to go in. Again dont forget this is a University so you can practically do any major here and like I said before Co-OP.

Drexel is a school which focuses on teaching skills and knowledge to be successful in the world as it is today. This is not the school to come to if you just want to party and read about philosophy. THis is the place to come if you want to work hard (especially in engineering), act like an adult, do networking, and graduate with job offers and head hunters coming after you (i am not kidding about this).

Drexel offers the coop experience which is amazing. For either three half year blocks(five year prorgram) or one half year block (four year program) you get experience working in the real world (and getting paid for it). The responsibilities that student are given are huge (not just getting coffee for people). THe networking that is done through these jobs is also invaluable. Imagine graduating from college and having more experience listed on your resume than anyone at other schools. This experience even includes patents and published papers in many cases.

In schools with really big names who are known for their great classical education, they turn out lots of students who have no actual real world skills and never find jobs. I dont know anyone from drexel who did not have job offers waiting for them when they graduated.

If you are serious about your life, yourself, and your contribution to your country, Drexel is the place to be.
