    Drexel can be extremely expensive for some while others pay less. I find that what you're paying for you can get back in full if you really really take advantage of everything. The co-op program is the biggest draw which will really help set up a student for after college when they have some experience on their resume while other students may be behind.

    Drexel is expensive, like the majority of schools. They provide a plethora of activities, benefits and a quality education. The opportunities of a Drexel education are limitless. They also offer the opportunity for job experience.

    Drexel is mostly known for the co-op experience, and most colleges don't offer up to 18 months of professional experience by graduation. The price may be steep and continuously rising, but the opportunities for research and professional development is unbeatable.

    I think they charge too much for what they offer... I have been to other schools, and $813 per unit is too high.
