Drexel University Graduate Reviews

31 reviews
This is a fantastic school! Many of my professors reflect "good vibes" - they are warm and welcoming to questions and conversations; and some just don't find that as their cup of tea - they're just there to teach and nothing more. Overall, my professors are great. They all work within the field and apply "real-life/world" knowledge to the non-traditional (online) classroom setting. My coursework is challenging, and I really feel like it's preparing me for my future. I wish the online program were more interactive; there seems to be a good handful of miscommunications that happen. A frustrating aspect is the financial aid department, where everyone who works in there has a different story, their knowledge differing on how things are handled, and they never let you speak to someone in charge. The online system of notifying you about payments and such is pretty bad (I never receive anything) - this department definitely needs some work.
