    I just was "accepted" yesterday - just a heads up!

    Also - my first degree is from Drexel and I live & work in the area. I work at Jefferson so - any questions about the area etc. feel free to message me or whatever - I've been down here for 4 yearsish and live outside the city and commute in every day.

    I technically applied in earlyish April / May - I still had some pre-reqs to tidy up.

    Ok, thanks. I applied 2 weeks ago and have 1 more pre-req this semester but I'm hoping for a preliminary acceptance soon. They are waiting for one more transcript which they should have received by Thursday or Friday at the latest. I'm going to call on Monday and if they haven't received it yet, I will probably go pick it up from the school and drop it off at Drexel since I live just outside of Philly.

    Just got accepted to the ACE Spring 2013 program! I am from Oregon and got my Bachelor's at the University of Arizona so I'm not familiar with Philadelphia at all! Any suggestions on where to live?

    Hi arulli! I was accepted for Spring 2013 and was excited to see that you went to school at the University of Arizona. I actually just graduated from Arizona State and am from Arizona. What did you get your bachelor's degree in? When are you planning on making the move to Philly?

    Hello Again.

    So I am trying to get a private loan for this program. Only problem is almost everyone says I have to wait at least 3-6 months before the program starts to apply for loans. We all know that we have a 60 day period to give a final answer as to whether or not we accept. How are the rest of you dealing with this dilemma?

    Can anyone suggest private loans that they are using? I am just in over my head and I want to go to this program so bad, but I DO NOT want to be stuck paying for tuition and not have a means to pay.

    Anyone else in this situation??

    Hey everyone! I was accepted into the Spring 2013 class as well. I'm looking into housing and will be looking for a roommate, so let me know if anyone is looking too. CONGRATS to everyone who was accepted!

    Hi Yea I emailed the finaid advisor and she said they it's best to apply for loans in January. I decided to attend Drexel and I'm hoping that I can get most of my loans from the direct parent plus one..

    Hi,

    I filled out my online application on the July 17th, transcripts were sent on the 18th so I am assuming they got there by the 23rd or 24th. I received my acceptance package in the mail yesterday which was the 30th. I think that was reallllly fast and I am surprised they responded so quickly considering how late I applied. Kinda makes me wonder if they are desperate for students lol? Anybody know how many students they are accepting for this cohort?

    Thank you for that info. I applied the same day and they should have gotten my last transcript last Wednesday but on the website it still says they haven't received it. I called yesterday and they said to give them until Friday as it may take time to process because they receive so many. Unfortunately I'm going away Friday until Tuesday and won't have any sort of internet or cell service to check, but if they still don't have it by Wednesday I will be taking a copy down to the office and handing it in myself. Hopefully I'll be able to celebrate soon!

    how long did it take from when you received your acceptance letter until you received your financial aid package information? there is a message on my drexel portal page which states the following (and i am sure is standard on every students page):

    congratulations on your admission to drexel university! we are currently reviewing your account and finalizing your financial aid package for the bachelor of science in accelerated career entry bsn program for the 2012-2013 academic year. you will be notified via mail if any additional information is required to complete your financial aid award.


    also did you receive it via regular mail or email?

    thanks!
