    I applied in late August and I found out earlier this week I got in, it only took a DAY for them to get back to me once my application was complete. They are definitely still picking people for the spring semester so don't give up!

    Also, I called and emailed the ACE counselors, admissions, anyone who sent me an email pretty much. They guided me through the process.

    I just want to know if I am correct: people have already been accepted to the ACE program that starts in Fall 2012? Please correct me if I am wrong and does anyone know the deadline? I filled out the application but I have to submit my transcript.

    Hello All! I have also been accepted to the Spring 2012 program. Does anyone know when a deposit is due to hold your spot in the program? I am still waiting to hear back from Jefferson for the FACT program, but don't want to miss out on Drexel....thanks

    Hello All! I have applied to the ACE program at Drexel as well. I plan to start September 2012. I have not received a decision as of yet! Does anyone know when decisions for the fall 2012 will be available?

    Hi Everyone - I applied to the Spring 2012 ACE program about a month ago and was accepted last week. The process was incredibly easy compared to the west coast, where even the community colleges demand upwards of a 4.0 and loads of CNA experience. Everyone at Drexel has been super friendly and helpful so far. Now I just have to get through Chemistry and CLEP out of a few classes and my pre-reqs will be complete.

    @J_Layne: Which courses does Drexel accept CLEP scores for?
  7. by   NCPDX
    I am taking Ethics in America, Intro to Sociology and Intro to Computing through DSST/CLEP. I think they would take CLEP scores for most of the prereqs, save for the sciences. Just give them a ring, they are really helpful and get back to you quickly.

    Ethics and sociology are two courses that I still have to fulfill, so that's great news. Thanks for your help!

    I believe the deadline has already passed. But I would check with them just to be sure. I applied in November and just got accepted for fall 2012 ace bsn.

    @ J_Layne
    I plan on applying to the 2013 cycle. I too will be taking clep/dsst exams. So far I have started studying Human Growt/Devl't for CLEP, but am still in need of an ethics exam and a comp sci exam. I emailed the admissions office regarding the DSST exam "ethics in america", and they said it may be too specific. They suggested I still take the exam, and see what happens...??? What was the outcome for you with the 'ethics in america' exam? Did Drexel accept the exam? Thank you!

    Hi, I also took Ethics in America to fulfill that requirement. It's pretty much the only way to CLEP out of that class - I didn't see any others. It satisfied the requirement and I'm starting in two weeks. It's pretty tough as far as CLEPs go, so make sure you pay for those practice tests. It was actually DSST I believe. Good luck!
