Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2012

As a Drexel student, I did not feel like a "number" or a "customer" but like a valued "partner." I invested in a Drexel education, and felt that the faculty and staff were invested in me - my future, my success, my goals. Earning my Master's online provided a great opportunity for me to balance my full time job in an unrelated field, raise a family and lead a normal life. I had previously attended Drexel for my Bachelor's degree as an on-campus student, and didn't feel any different. Both experiences connected me with the university, and both times I graduated happily. Thanks Drexel!!!

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Drexel is a great school but it is very expensive and my public health is so large that it's hard to get individual attention.

Degree: Physician Assistant
Graduation Year: 2014

The Drexel-Hahnemann Physician Assistant program is a highly demanding, but very rewarding program which pushes its students to their full capacity. Although it is a rigorous program that puts most of the responsibility for learning material on the student, most faculty members make themselves available for support at the drop of a hat. While I do think there are a few kinks in the progression of courses, I have to trust the Drexel system because they have put out so many amazing PAs, and continue to grow and adapt to the increasing demands and responsibilities taken on by the profession.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2014

Drexel's Doctorat of Physical Therapy program is a great size (graduating classes of about 50-60), a good tight network of professors with students, and in the heart of philadelphia. Cost of tuition with little help and teaching from financial aide offices make finances difficult.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Although Drexel's Law program is not yet ranked quite as high as we would like, the value for the education and faculty is worth it. They are pretty generous with giving out financial aid, and the atmosphere on campus is incredibly supportive and friendly for a law school. Most students worry about finding a job in this market, but career services has been helpful with giving us the tools to succeed in this economy so far.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2014

I'm currently enrolled in Drexel University's Executive MBA program. It's a phenomenal program for anyone interested in entrepreneurship and leadership. It's a small class size and focuses on experiential learning, which I love. The great thing about this program for me is that I find it very empowering as a minority woman to go back to school and be a part of such an elite program. You learn a lot about yourself and your capabilities. I also have been very fortunate to have supportive administrators and encouraging classmates to make my experience extremely positive. The only downside for me is the high cost of tuition. Otherwise, I highly recommend anyone that is able to go back to school to do so as it takes you on the path to you achieve your life goals both professionally and personally.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2014

I am an online MS student. Many of the rating categories do not apply to me; hence the low grade. Therefore, if I was to give an overall rating to Drexel based on my circumstances, I would give it a 9. The online format of my program is a huge relief. I wanted to get a quality education from a well-reputed university, but could not afford to leave my job and relocate somewhere. The online program provided a solution. My experience with the university overall has been wonderful. The staff and faculty are very friendly, informative, and reliable. You can trust them to do their best to guide you. One of the reasons I chose Drexel University out of the three well-known universities I had been applied to is because of their friendliness and reliability factors. I would recommend Drexel University and its online programs to anyone. The only con I can think of is that I did not find much financial aid opportunities aside from loans (looking for grants or scholarships instead). But from my understanding this is an issue for any Master's student at any university.

I love that my program is online, and the school does well to set up cohorts, so you are taking classes with familiar names, if not faces. The advising support is also very strong. However, the instruction is hit-or-miss, and I feel that each quarter, I find myself enrolled in one class with a very strong instructor and thought-provoking materials, and one class which is a seeming waste of time, and taught by an instructor who does not present new ideas and/or does not know how to suitably use technology. Drexel is not cheap, and offers little institutional aid. If it were not for the convenience of the online program, I would look elsewhere.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2013

I am in the Publication Management program, focused on the Publishing Industry, a division of the Communication Department. I feel like the professors are extremely knowledgeable and well-known in their respective fields, except they are nearly impossible to contact. The advisor of my program is especially difficult to contact, which is frustrating. The expensiveness of the school should allow for more contact with advisors and better career outlooks.
