    Rejected Post II. Very surprising because I thought the interview went great, and thought I got along well with my student. Oh wells, would most likely not have attended because I felt the class size was way too big.

    Unfortunately this is how applying to med school works...some schools will want you (timing of when this happens is also up to their jurisdiction) and other schools will not.

    On my interview day the director said that if you don't hear anything past 8 weeks it's reasonable to give them a call about your status.

    Awesome! Did your package include any scholarships? Any other accepted students have any scholarships in their package?

    Are they expecting a lot of movement after traffic day? I should be hearing back soon after and dont know if that is work for or against me possibly.

    Received my FA package today. I was wondering if anybody's package includes more than just a federal loan for 21K a semester? How do we apply for private loans? This obviously does not cover the COA. Sorry if this is a stupid question.

    You need to apply for GradPlus and that will be applied after you sign your MPN and everything.

    I’m just confused cause it says in the Drexel financial aid website that 99% of students get aid from Drexel itself, maybe it’s just early and they haven’t given out scholarships yet?

    Hardly anyone gets scholarships. At least from my experience... they probably actually means loans.

    When should I accept the aid (loan)?


    Im on a couple of other waitlists, should I accept it right away even though I may attend another school?

    Sorry, @MooberGoober asked if you can wait to “accept” your aid, which you can. If you go to DrexelOne and view your aid it gives the option.

    The unsubsidized loan is granted via Drexel. GradPlus you must apply for and you can input how much aid you want and then Drexel approves of that as well. But GradPlus you have to do a separate application.

    Do they let applicants fill out scholarship info if they havent been accpeted yet? I wont hear for a couple more weeks but see the scholarship deadline is soon and you need an ID and email to submit the first survey page

    I think it’s just the nature of schools like these that get an incredible number of apps. I still haven’t heard anything from a couple schools that I know for a fact are done interviewing.:shrug:
