    Hi Everyone,

    Is having a car an absolute must for getting to and from clinicals? Does anyone knows if they school gives preference to those who do not have car to pick clinical sites that's easily accessible by public transportation? I am from the NYC metro area and do not have a car...was thinking about how I would get around w/o a car.

    A couple people did not have cars, they just used public transportation or car pooled with someone in their clinical group. But no, the school does not give any preference as to where your sites are going to be.

    Hi Everyone!

    I just wanted to let you all know that a Facebook group has been created for the Fall 2013 cohort. If you type in "Drexel ACE Fall 2013" in the search box, you should be able to see the group and request to join.

    Hi everyone I just found out that I was accepted for the Fall 2013 cohort yesterday!! For those of you who have received the official acceptance package, does it have information on all of the requirements for the program such as vaccines, background check, certifications, when we start, etc.? I just started my Hep B vaccine today but I'm not sure if I need titers drawn and a physical. Also how long did it take you to get the packet in the mail? Just trying to get all of my ducks in a row I can't wait to meet everyone and thanks for the help!!

    I also could not find the Facebook page for fall 2013.

    The official acceptance packet did not have any of that information in it. I believe we receive out compliance package in February or March.

    Congratulations GCKJ01! When did you apply? I applied in early October and I'm anxious to hear back.

    Thank you!! I applied mid October and just found out on Wednesday. It took them awhile to process my Fall transcripts so that may be what is delaying your decision if you recently sent transcripts. Contacting Drexel helps. I contacted them to make sure that my transcripts arrived and as soon as they were processed i had a decision that day. Good Luck!!!

    Congrats GCKJ01!!! Just wondering who you called to confirm your Fall transcripts were received?
    I also applied mid Oct and called the general Undergrad Admissions number early last week and they confirmed my Fall transcripts had been processed (finally! ~4 weeks) and my status still says Under Review/Complete. Thanks!!

    I emailed (MODERATOR EDIT OF NAME - PLEASE DO NOT POST NAMES OF INDIVIDUALS IN YOUR PROGRAM PER TOS), he was very helpful and responds pretty fast. Good Luck!
