Okay, somewhat new Drexel topic! (not that there aren't enough already). I guess I'm looking for somewhat specific advice (if possible). I hear the administration and some professors can be less than desired. So, I'm curious what people have done (or would suggest) to succeed in the program. Specific(ish) questions (If you'd rather, send me a PM, and I could at your discression, post it here):
What classes/professors require you to be super textbook oriented (like, test questions often from the book, but not discussed in class)?
What classes/professors seem more notes oriented (text just in case you're really curious).
What is the level of homework in general. I understand there are care plans
, but what other stuff is there? Papers? Regular questions?
What books did you feel were really not worth buyin (never opened them)? Which ones were the most used?
Which professors/classes were the killers (that you wish you had started studying sooner), and which were easier than expected?
How are the classes organized? Does one professor teach all of the instances of a given class, or are there multiple professors for each subject?
What is the classmates comraderie like? Do you guys feel closer or like enemies in the end? Is there a pinning ceremony?
For those that found it to be not the hardest in the world, how did you find a 'groove'. For those that felt it was constantly an uphill struggle, what worked in the end?
Thanks a million! (No, I'm not stressing out immensely, 8.5 weeks and counting!!!!!)
