Drexel University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (34)
I do not recomend the MSN progam. The professors are not helpful. The advisors are a joke. The program is needlessly difficut assignment are due the due date without exceptions even in the event of an emergency. Grading is unpredictable and unattainable at times. They do not give A's, per the syllabus, and passing is an 85 or above. That is a very small window to base your career and your future on. The program is not geared towards working adults.
Terrible school. Several unforeseen charges and difficulties. There were way too many errors made by the school I ended up paying the price for. Anytime I talked to someone on the phone they were very rude and did not seem to know how to do their job. Financial aid was terrible. Unless you have about $65,000 dollars free money, you'll have to take out several loans. Think twice before you commit. I would not recommend this school. They claim not to charge you tuition while you go out on Co-op however I was charged the full amount. There are so many other schools with great programs and opportunities. THINK BEFORE YOU COMMIT!!! Even now, as a student who withdrew, I am still paying for the mistakes the university made.
Great institution with quality education. The Coop program is top notch. I came to this school and was employed throughout my years from undergrad to graduate school. Small size classes and great professors.The Quarter system is fast paced and great if you are ready to work and finish school quickly. From 2000 to 2005 I have already got my bachelor and Masters degrees. it is expensive ,but it is a private institution. The financial Aid office is awesome. They will work with you throughout your program. This school will one day be among the top notch private university to the likes of Brown and Stanford. I have no regrets attending Drexel. Go Dragon!
Drexel's rigorous coursework, co-op program, and location make it a great option for any student. In addition to being challenged academically, I was provided career assistance that has played a key role in the work that I do today. I would encourage every prospective student to think realistically, and strategically about the financial expectations for attending; Drexel is not cheap!
I have no regrets, having chosen Drexel University for my undergraduate studies. Beyond academics, Ive learned self-advocacy, agency, how to collaborate, and how learn from failures. Drexel has great research- and industry-experienced instructors, rigorous coursework with real world applications, relevant majors and program offerings that parallel workforce trends, and career development opportunities alongside cooperative learning experiences (whereas students can graduate with up to 1.5 years of work experience). Additionally, Drexel is in the heart of Philadelphia, rich with great museums, job opportunities, shopping, food, and culture.
Drexel's quarter system prepares young professionals with time management skills and critical thinking. I think the curriculum was rigorous but effective. Also, anyone who attends Drexel should really attempt to take advantage of the coop program, steinbright career development services, and the study abroad program.
Drexel University is located in Philadelphia, PA. It is close to several businesses and hospital networks, which allow them to work together to form the Cooperative Education program. Students are given the opportunity to choose between a 5 or 4 year program. Both include the coop program, which allows students to leave with at least six months of work experience in their desired field. Drexel follows a quarter system, which makes their programs rigorous but also allows students the option to maximize their workload and graduate early with their flexible schedules. Also, the social life is great. Students can join a variety of student organizations from Greek Life, Athletics, and Academic organizations. I enjoyed my three years at Drexel and I would recommend this University to everyone else.
Drexel University provided a profound education and applicable working opportunities through their unique co-op program. The school offers students to complete three, six-month internships, over the course of a five-year undergraduate program. This unique opportunity allows Drexel students to apply what they have learned in the classroom to their desired professional field. As a result, I was able to discover the best career path to take after receiving my undergraduate degree. The personal experience I had at Drexel University allowed me to figure out my intended career path, which led to my decision to attend graduate school after graduation. After five years, I feel that Drexel has set me, as well as all other graduates, with academic and professional experience that makes me stand out from other undergraduates. Very few schools offer the co-op program, but I believe it would be beneficial for all college students to have a co-op opportunity. Another unique aspect of Drexel University is the academic calendar follows a quarter system, consisting of 10 weeks. Thus, the curriculum is rigorous due to the heavy course content covered in a shorter period of time (when compared to a semester school system). The quarter system teaches students time management, organization, and a strong work ethic. Such skills can be transferred over to professional work. The classes also carry a small student to teacher ratio, allowing students to work with teachers on their academic performance. All staff, including academic advisors, co-op advisors, and teachers offer guidance for current as well as future concerns. Overall, I would highly recommend attending Drexel University for an undergraduate degree. The co-op program provides a unique experience for students to explore their professional path. The small student to teacher ratio creates an open academic relationship for students to seek guidance and mentorship from professors. Other staff, including academic and co-op advisors, also creates an open and inviting relationship to offer guidance whenever needed by students.
Overall, I enjoyed my program. I believe that it definitely prepared me well for medical school next year, and look forward to using all of the skills that I have gained in the future. The staff and faculty were very helpful and went out of their way to help out students.
