Pardon the vile language on the para aboveDec 22 2019Unknown
Pardon the vile language on the para above. I'm a fairly intellectual kid with a 3.4 right now and 1450 SATs. Drexel gave me a okayish scholarship, and the CS dept. is fine. So, I came.

I transferred to Drexel as a sophomore from aAug 04 2018Design Arts - Industrial Design/Graphic Design/etc
I transferred to Drexel as a sophomore from a state university in New York (SUNY Binghamton). I think it's probably easier to transfer in, so if you don't get in the first time don't hesitate to try again. I transferred because my original school didn't have a design program and I switched majors, but I know I probably would have been accepted if I applied the first time around.

I recommend going to Drexel and taking a tour and talking to faculty if possible; Reach out to the heads of the departments you'd be taking classes in and speak to them personally. Leaving your name may help, and you'll get a better sense what the school is like. Also, Maggi in the admissions office is insanely helpful and kind, and if you speak to her and talk about what you're passionate about, maybe it'll be useful.

Easy to get in if you have good grades. Definitely "appeal" to get more money, they will give it

I got nearly the exact SAT scores as theMar 09 2018Computer Science
I got nearly the exact SAT scores as the average accepted student to Drexel as well as GPA in high school. Drexel was the only University I applied to and got in. They know only about an 8th of the students make it through the program so a lot of the accepted students end up just giving the university money so please consider your options before going here.
SAT: 1810 Male
