Hello All- I applied to the Drexel ACE program for Spring 2013 start date. Just wondering if there is any one else out there who will be playing the waiting game for the next several weeks/months ;)... Read More
- 0Jul 14, '12 by ashley_nicoleI just submitted my application for the ACE program for Fall 2013. I have been in contact with the admissions office and they told me they didn't need a letter of reccomendation (which is nice, although I may get one just in case). But I do have a question that was not brought up while I was on the phone with admissions.
For the essay part, it says we don't have to write one. Has anyone just thrown one in there for good measure anyway? Will it "look better" (or worse) if there is one added in? I submitted my application without the essay, but I have one writtin just in case. Any advice on that?
I am in my last year of college and will be graduating May of 2013. I have all of my prereqs done (except ethics and developmental psych). Has anyone applied to the program before they recieved their degree, and still got accepted (pending degrees reciept)?
This school is my first choice for admission, but I live in North New Jersey right now and work part time. Has anyone made the move and have just "made it work"? The tuition and living/work situations is what's making me a little nervous. Just wanted to get some feedback as to how people have made situations like that work (especially if it's reccomended that you don't work).
Any information or advice any of you can give would be greatly appreciated!

I just received my application decision. I was accepted! Congrats to all the other accepted students.
I decided to accept this program and am feeling a little unsure. The cost seems high, and I have absolutely NO idea how to find real scholarships or how to even get loans.
I am also confused as to if we have to live on campus during the 11 month program.
Any thoughts / worries similar to mine?

congratulations to all accepted students! i too have been accepted for the spring 2013 start.
i agree that the program is very expensive but i think it will be worth it. :-)
has there been a facebook group created for the spring 2013 ace program? i saw that there was one for the fall 2012 but nothing for 2013.
- 0Jul 17, '12 by owluhsinShawna23, yes I am worried about the cost too! I actually haven't accepted yet because I want to talk to them about financial aid first to get an idea of how much I'd be paying out of pocket. As far as I know, there are little to no scholarships that we are eligible for. Because of the short time-frame and non-traditional start dates, we wouldn't be eligible for most scholarships I've seen. Maybe there are some merit-based scholarships that I haven't seen?
Also, we do not have to live on-campus. I think most people who do it live off-campus.
