What impressed you positively?

"The students were SO friendly. One girl was late to class, but she still took time to walk me to the admissions office bc she didn't want me to get lost. Other students that I met were also super friendly. The facilities are great. The faculty don't really do research, so they really focus on teaching and their students. It's a very student-oriented school. It's 20 minutes from Center City, the heart of Philly and there are free shuttle sthere!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"I really loved the school when I went and I can't figure out why its reputation isn't that great. I think that since MCP merged with Drexel, it has had a huge turn-around and is gradually trying to change its image to become a more selective/top-tired school. But I would be wary of being a student there during this transition period. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I had prepared an answer to the "tell my about yourself" question...but when he pressed for more, I wasn't ready. So have plenty to say about yourself! Make a list of points that you want to get across. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Student one was a joke...I think he only signed up to do it for the free lunch. The faculty one was confusing...after I told him abotu myself, he did all the talking and just tried to sell the school which was cool. But I didn't do much talking. But I got in, so don't worry if it happens to you. " Report Response
