    MegC- I was wondering the same thing. I think the package we will receive in the mail will provide us with more useful information about the deposit deadline. For some reason I thought it was 60 days, but I may be wrong!

    Hey everyone, I just found out today that I was accepted! It was quite a surprise as I was not expecting to get in, since I still have a lot of prereqs to finish. Here are my stats: 3.67 undergrad GPA in sociology, 4.0 in prereqs, but I still have to take nutrition, ethics, chemistry, and two more quarters of A & P.

    Congratulations to everyone who was accepted!

    Hey Guys! I just found out that I was accepted to the program today! I am beyond excited and was thinking that maybe starting a fb Drexel ACE Fall 2012 wouldn't be a bad idea so we can all meet each other?! If there's any interest, I will set it up. Best of luck to everyone who applied and I can't wait to see who will be in the class of Fall 2012!

    Hello! I was accepted as well! I am waiting to hear from a few other schools before I make a final decision, but I am incredibly excited to possibly become a member of Drexel's Fall 2012 cohort. Congratulations to all those who have been accepted and best wishes to those who still have yet to hear!

    Hi All, I was accepted too! I'm still waiting to hear from other schools, but it was such a relief to receive an acceptance. My stats are: 2.6 undergrad, 4.0 prereqs, 3.5 last 60. I still need to take ethics. Does anyone know of a good online course? Like others, I'm wondering what the deadline is for making a deposit. I emailed the coordinator for the program but haven't gotten a response yet.

    Congrats Stephaneph!!! I am happy for you. When did you apply? When exactly did you hear from them and can you give an idea of what your stats looked like. I am still waiting for a reply and getting nervous.

    Hey everyone,
    I was wondering what you all have done for your "Computer Techniques" or "Techniques of Speaking" course? I am baffled that I need to take a computer literacy course, and can't see myself spending the money or the time to take one. Has anyone successfully argued that they should be exempt from the course? I took a Sociological Research Methods in undergrad that used SPSS for a good chunk of the semester, and if I can write syntax programs for that software, I would think I am computer literate? I am *really* excited about my acceptance to Drexel, because Drexel Nursing grads are so well-regarded by area hospitals and have great NCLEX pass rates, but when I got my transfer credit evaluation I started feeling pretty bummed and that it would be easier to attend another program here in the city. My B.A. is from a liberal arts college, so even though I took courses with comparable/higher level content to Soc 101 and English 101, the transfer credit evaluation didn't recognize that. Do you guys have any advice or success with transfer credit wrangling of your own to report?

    Thanks!! and good luck to those of you that haven't heard yet-- I submitted my app in early October and only just heard a week ago, so don't stress too much :-)

    Also if anyone needs housing/neighborhoods advice, feel free to PM me, I moved to the city a year ago and have been loving it!
