    Visit the campus and talk to as many current students/faculty/staff that work with your prospective major as possible. Make sure that you are comfortable with the academic, 10-Week, quarter system before committing to Drexel. Explore Philadelphia and the campus area to make sure that it is a good fit for you.

    I was really disappointed with Drexel's on-line program. there is a very indifferent attitude with some of the staff and professors. If you dont understand, it is your problem, and when you are paying something like $ 800 per unit, I think professors should be able to teach or at least try to understand the problems that you are having. The overall class structure is good, but the tech support was so very unsubstancial and I could not follow along. I did not understnad what they were doing, and there was no one to really talk to. That was even worse, I just had to order a transcript, and my friend stuggled to understand how to even do that. It took us a couple of hours to do something that should have taken 15 minutes. Some professors were really cool and understood the program and problems, so they were accommodating the problems, but for some, they graded you down because you did not understand and leaving you in the dark. I think there are schools out there that are far better... and do offer assistance. Who ever heard of a school tech department operating only 9-5 Monday through Friday, and you do homework on a weekend, or late at night and there is no one to talk to. This is NOT acceptable. Before you enroll for this program, make sure you understand the tech programs and how they work. Ask a lot of questions! There is no sense in spending all this money and not getting what you need out of the program. Ask a lot of questions. Many did not have issues, and maybe it was my ability to understand the technology wihich the administration knew I did not understand. A school who can not offer assistance when you ask for it, has some issues.

    Don't let the financial aid fool you. Really think about whether you can afford Drexel because they give freshmen the most financial aid and work study to draw you in, but after that first year they take most if it away. I filed a valid reason for asking for more aid, since my dad passed away and my mom was suffering from cancer and had to pay those expenses and they still didnt give me more aid. That's how selfish they are.

    If you're up for the challenge, the opportunities are here at Drexel. If your interested in research, check out the STAR program for incoming freshmen. It's a paid summer internship with housing. For anyone considering attending Drexel, I would contact the department you would be considering for your major. I set up an appointment with the Electrical Engineering department when I went on the campus tour. I met with a professor and an adviser, they were great. They explained how the program worked, spoke about Drexel in general and answered all the questions my parents and I had . They gave us contact information that we used later for followup questions via email and telephone. Checkout the COOP program,COOP is what makes Drexel different. Freshman year started in 9/2012, all freshman are required to take classes to prepare for COOP. In 12/2013 I interviewed with 4 companies, got job offers from 3 and just started(3/31/14) a 6 month full-time position with SAP Solutions (the 4th largest software company in the world). It's an unbelievable opportunity. Even more unbelievable is that I get paid (I think alot), they offered me benefits, health insurance, 401K. I'm excited to learn and contribute. The other tip is something I heard from student at every school I looked at. GET INVOLVED and do it right away... club, sports, Greek life, work study job, student government, newspaper, pep band, anything.

    A lot of people don't expect the short terms to be as difficult as they are, and aren't prepared to have only nine weeks of study per course. You should definitely make sure your study habits and time are well managed before embarking on your course of study. Although there are many coop jobs available in the system, you definitely want to perform an outside job search in addition to using the internal database in order to maximize your chance of landing a fulfilling, worthwhile position in your field.
