Drexel University ACE Spring 2010 - page 4
Hello all, I just received a letter from Drexel saying that my application for the ACE program is now complete and I'm waiting for a response. I was wondering if anyone else here is applying for the... Read More
May 27, '09Oh that is funny!! My best friend was an engineering major is now back in school for interior design, and we always talk about science and art (particularly design) are so similar in such a weird way we just can't explain. Will you be in the ACE program in the Fall or are you doing the 4-yr program?
May 27, '09CocoBelly- my undergraduate was awful too with excellent prerequisite grades and I got in to Drexel. They sent me this teeny, tiny envelop and I was so sad opening it...only to find out they were just telling me (again) that my application was complete and under review. I got my acceptance packet a few weeks later.
May 27, '09oh that's good to know!! I feel better- but lets hope I'm not that odd exception. And knowing me, if I am, I will go back to them and grill them with WHY I wasn't accepted and ask them to lay it all out for me. haha. I can be a little crazy like that when I really want something!!
and btw- congrats on your acceptance!! I'm excited to talk to more people attending the program as it gets closer. As much as I want it and hope I get in, I get nervous thinking about it and feeling alone in such a rough program.. so it makes me feel better to talk to everyone on here.. and it's also nice because every time there is a response on here and I get to write back- I get excited and it keeps me focused on the goal
May 27, '09They are similar! Glad there are people that understand that
I'm doing the ACE program in the Fall. you're Spring?
May 27, '09If I get in, I'll be Spring. But I haven't received word yet.
As for the science/design similarity... I think it has to do with maybe our analytical abilities.. good problem solving skills and our sheer curiosity and need/desire to understanding how things work....????
May 27, '09I think you're right about that! Well, I hope you get in! Maybe we will cross paths.
Fran Englemann is super helpful if you still have questions, she helped me out a lot. I can hunt down her
email if you need it, or you probably already have it
May 28, '09Yep! Fran was a huge help. They aren't the most organized over there, and I had handed my transcripts in person since I had read about their disorganization... however, they still managed to temporarily lose them. I spoke with her over the phone many times and she was always really understanding and calm, and never got super annoyed with my freaking out, haha, and she made it a priority to get it all under control.
May 28, '09Hi...ahh I started my statistics class this week and it's a mess...between work and school I don't have time for anything...it's not one of those fun classes either...
CocoBelly, sorry for not answering your question earlier...no, I'm not from US (as you might have notised already from my writing) and my degree is in Bioengineering...
Did you hear anything yet, or still waiting?
May 28, '09ha, i did not notice from your writing at all! usually i can tell that stuff pretty quick since my family is not from the US either, haha... but you have great English typing skills! And yeah, I am still waiting to find out.
May 29, '09Thanks, I'm trying...it's been 4 years since I'm here...where is your family from?
WOW, I'm very surprised they are still keeping you waiting...I got my letter pretty quickly...you should be getting something soon!
May 29, '09My family is from India, however, I was bored and raised here in the good ol' US of A!
Where are you from?
It has really only been one week since Fran let me know that everything had been submitted for review. I may give a call today anyway to check in.
May 29, '09lol you really have no intentions to leave them alone until you hold that letter in your hands haha...I don't blame you, I would be the same way if I didn't receive mine already. One thing about Drexel is that they are not too strict with admissions (I don't know if that's good or bad), but I'll be very surprised if they deny you. Just hang in there, you'll get it.
I'm from Bulgaria...
May 29, '09Haha, well I just get worried bc although my name is very unsual, for some reason, there's always issues with it. There is one girl in Philadelphia who has my name, and we keep crossing paths. When I was working in advertising, I worked with a staffing agency who mixed up my whole file with this other chick's bc she's a graphic designer. So today I talked to someone at Drexel about my application and they were like "oh yeah here's your file, were you a graphic design major?" and i was like NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Apparently they mixed my file up with hers again at Drexel too. (Now I know she went to Drexel!) But it's all under control now, so they say, they gave me a new ID number, and apparently my transcripts and application will be reviewed today and I should recieve a letter in 2 weeks.
I would LOVE to go to Bulgaria.
