    Congrats meredith8!!! I paid my tuition downpayment yesterday. I figured I won't be hearing from Pace or SBU anytime soon, so it might be in my best interest to hold my seat. The only thing I'm nervous about it the housing situtation. I know many who are accepted mentioned in the facebook group that they will be staying off campus. I feel safer being on campus since Philly will be totally new to me.

    Hi all. I just got in for the fall too! Congrats to everyone else that's gotten in so far and good luck to those still waiting to hear.

    Yourstruly_dm and meredith8, I live in Washington Heights right now. I've been in NYC for almost 6 years now, so I'm looking forward to a change of scenery!
    Hey Chula431,

    You should join the facebook group if you have not already done so.

    Hey! I am just as nervous about the housing situation. I have some friends and my boyfriend already in Philly but since I will be finishing my first undergrad this May I am nervous too! But, from talking to other nursing students there are very few that live in Center City (where our buildings are). Most live in University City and travel via the Drexel Shuttle at 33rd and Market daily. They all said it is super easy, safe, and reliable. I am looking for housing now in University City. I just sent a request to the FB group so if anyone is interested in housing let me know!

    I guess after I visit the Philly area I'll decide what to do in terms of housing.

    Hey, congrats to everyone!! I'm attending the info session this Thurs at Drexel. I've recently decided to apply for fall of 2014 and was just wondering if it's better to get my application in early. I do have 9 completed prereqs, but I have 4 more to go. Should I wait until it's closer to the October deadline to apply when I'll have a couple more prereqs completed or should I just go for it when I'm ready? I'm a little scared of the program right now so I'm trying to gather as much info as possible. I'm one of those people that need to be as prepared as possible before starting something new. Again, congrats to you all! And hang in there, I heard it is a grueling 11 months, but well worth it in the end

    Hi mj1014,

    I'll be starting the program this Sept for Fall 2013. I would definitely recommend applying as early as possible given that you already have the 9 prereqs completed(at least 1 of the sciences should be done too). Drexel reviews applications based on when you submitted your application. If you read through this thread, you can see those with earlier acceptance notices applied much earlier than the Oct deadline. I applied in mid October and didn't hear back until the end of Jan., a grueling 3 month wait! Just be sure to send in your updated transcripts as you complete your preqs. I live in the area so I personally delivered my application package to Admissions, but snail-mailed updated transcripts and I noticed those transcripts took forever to be "received and processed."

    Good luck to you!!

    Thanks so much for the info. That info session gave me a lot to think about. It's sounds super scary. I'm going to apply and hope for the best! Best of luck to you. Please keep us updated after you start so we can be prepared! Well, as prepared as we can be anyway! LOL

    hey guys!

    I just applied for the Spring 2014 cohort and I have a question about sending transcripts. Do I need to send it with the transcript request form or can I just ask my college to send it directly to drexel? I am asking this because I don't live near that college anymore and would have to make a trip there if I need to send my transcript with the request form.

    Congrats on all the acceptances and best of luck to those that are still waiting!

    You can ask your college to send it directly to drexel. They should have an "order transcript online" link on their registrar's website. Most schools do.

    Hi guys,

    I was just accepted to Drexel's Fall 2013-2014 program. Can anyone tell me what they mean by a computer applications course? Thanks!
