What impressed you positively?

"Both curricula have interesting things to offer, the facilities were very nice, Ms. Trottie was very very nice to all the interviewees, and my student host was great." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The tour guide was a little off the wall, and told us something about the anatomy lab that sort of left me with a negative impression about the students. Also, my interviewer, while polite, was a bit cold and allowed our interview to be interrupted by someone (really not that big of a deal, but it sort of broke my concentration)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"How exactly the shuttle system at the airport works. And that most applicants were from the east coast or west coast, not the midwest.. I felt kind of like a loner!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Drexel was an interesting place. I felt like there was a lot of downtime, which is both good and maybe not so good. My student host was great, very helpful and informative. The faculty interviewer was kind of hard to read, and just asked the standard "stuff about you" questions - tell me about yourself, etc. No ethical questions or off the wall questions. The student interviewer had a distinct set of questions she wanted to ask, but it wasn't really awkward or anything. I liked the facilities, and the curricula - both IFM and PIL - seem to have a lot to offer in different ways. Plus, the humanities thing is neat. I thought our tour guide was a little off the wall, and she told us about a pseudo-prank that was done in the anatomy lab.. that was a little unsettling to me, but maybe I'm being too sensitive about it. I'm not sure that I felt "at home" here like I have elsewhere, but I guess we shall see, and that's totally a personal comment." Report Response
