Drexel University Reviews
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.
The professors in the communications department are some of the best in the school. They are always available and a great support. The facilities unfortunately are not the best for the communications department. It may have changed after I left. I am happy with my education from Drexel.
Drexel is a really good school, so be prepared to get challenged. Review you syllabi and make a schedule to keep up with the pretty face paced school year. If you don't prepare your self, you may fall behind. Also, register on time in order to get the classes you needs for completion of your degree. If ever you need to drop/add make sure you make the deadline. Some courses for majors are only offered certain times of the year. Meaning if you have a class scheduled for spring of this year, if missed the chance to register, you would wait a full year to be able to register. There are no exceptions.
The online classes from Drexel Online helped me get my degree while still working a full time job. I would recommend it to anyone trying to work a job and still earn a degree at the same time. Now I have a great job working at a communications company that I wouldn't have been able to get without my Bachelor's.
Drexel is by far the WORST university regarding loans or any type of advisement! Their business office is horrendous. They are never able to provide assistance. They read from a script and just blow you off day after day, month after month regarding loans, registration, finanacial aide etc. The advisement center is also horrible. They don't return emails and when you meet with someone they are clueless. This has by far been my most stressful experience of my life. I DO NOT recommend Drexel as an online school at all. Save yourself the hassle and attend somewhere that is organized and hires competent staff and that doesn't outsource!
