Degree: Engineering
Graduation Year: 2011

The Drexel experience has well prepared me for the challenges I have been facing in the working world. It has provided me a platform to think outside of the box for innovative solutions while considering all available resources. I has had the best years while at Drexel University. The professors were attentive to my curiosity and put their best efforts into helping me to develop a firm foundation of knowledge. I experienced a well balanced environment between school and extra curricular activities.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Pediatric Primary Care)
Graduation Year: 2018

I chose Drexel University because it is one of four schools in the country who currently offer nurses the opportunity to pursue a dual Master's Degree focusing on Pediatric Acute and Primary care. The program's curriculum is challenging and expectations are high, the downside to this is the forgotten concept of working students. It is an online part-time program; however, flexibility is lacking on some of the courses offered.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

Overall, I was happy with my graduate experiences at Drexel University. I chose this program to help me get in to medical school, which it did. It also served two other purposes: to test one's "readiness" and to give you an advantage once in medical school. Because students take nearly all of the real first-year medical school classes in this program, it is quite a "trial by fire." You will be challenged in ways far beyond any undergraduate program, but if you can succeed in these classes, you will have a huge head-start in medical school. That being said, some people in my cohort were not so successful, and I think for them this was a wake-up call that they were not ready to meet the rigors of medical school. For medical school applicants with subpar undergraduate GPAs, this program can be immensely helpful in giving you an academic boost. But be warned. Not everyone in this program will go on to an M.D. program. Some were accepted to D.O. programs or Caribbean schools, so adjust your expectations now. You have to be honest with yourself. Are you ready to devote 10+ hours a day to studying to be successful in this program (which is still easier than medical school)? If so, you can absolutely succeed with this program. The faculty and staff are wonderful and, if you are engaged and show interest, they will help you to reach your goals. I enjoyed this program because of the amazing faculty, the ability to take real medical school classes, and most importantly because it helped me to get accepted into two M.D. programs.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2018

Drexel's online master's program is one of the best experiences a student could ask for. Your professors are always prompt with interesting discussions and challenging assignments. The program helps you network with people in the field to help you get a job and be successful. This program has helped me grow and continues to change my life for the better everyday.

Degree: Marriage & Family Therapy
Graduation Year: 2019

I received a BS from Drexel University and was so satisfied with my education that I decided to continue with my master's there as well. Drexel has a diverse campus with professors who genuinely care about each student. They are informative and have direct experience in the field. I would recommend Drexel to any student looking for a great education, you definitely will not be disappointed.
