I am here on a national merit scholarshipMar 11 2016Engineering Department
I am here on a national merit scholarship. I did a few things in high school and had a job in a cafe, but I'm pretty sure it was my high test scores and GPA that got me into the honors college as well. Drexel was my first choice even though I probably could have gotten into an Ivy. It's easy to get into Drexel so long as you have a solid GPA (at least 2.0, 2.5 or up recommended, but that's just an estimate). If you're interested in engineering, I recommend that you get as much coding, robotics, and/or CAD experience as possible just because it will make it easier when you get here and open up more opportunities. I didn't know any of that before coming but I turned out fine, you catch on quick.

Rock your PSATs and get a National Merit Scholarship!Jan 08 2015Computer Science
Rock your PSATs and get a National Merit Scholarship! One of last top schools to offer a great package. If that opportunity has passed, do well on your SAT/ACT and have a great GPA. Do some research on your own and show it on your application. This is a big research school so give them what they want. Also, if you are sure on Drexel, take a summer program. It more than pays for itself as you get a scholarship each year you attend after.

If you are going to get in for theNov 18 2014Economics
If you are going to get in for the co-op it is a cool thing but not worth the inflated price tag the university puts on it. The payout is not worth the cost. I learned the hard way.

I went to the university because of soccer andSep 16 2014Engineering Department
I went to the university because of soccer and engineering. I was very utilitarian in my decision. Looking on who I became I am excited that I choose to go to Philadelphia, but it is more or less because I was forced to become strategic because the school is sloppy. Sloppy records, sloppy organizational skills, sloppy classes at times. More or less they are very business like and even show off that they are looking for entrepreneurs who are going to make a ton of money and donate back. The whole thing about being an entrepreneur is that you don't need a degree to say that you are able to make your own job. So if you go to Drexel you will have fun, but be prepared to be stressed out of your mind and not just because classes are hard.

It's very easyJun 22 2014Engineering Department
It's very easy. You just need to have money. $15k scholarship is automatically awarded and the tuition fees continue increasing. Good luck!
