    Wow what lol. That must be like the latest II of the cycle (that I know of at least). Congrats nevertheless :) I'm assuming you weren't on pre-II hold here?

    Yeah I never got the pre-hold email or any email from Drexel since I submitted my app in early August. To be honest, I thought my app was either dropped on the floor somewhere left forgotten, went straight to their Spam folder, or was feed to the Dragon mascot. :rofl:

    So those days that Drexel closed, they extended the interview dates to late April which now makes sense as to why they deferred people. Gunna be matched up to the the last few applicants for the handful of spots left.

    Does anyone know when they’ll be sending information on when school starts/registering for classes?

    Did you just withdraw your application from the secondary application / interview portal? Or did you e-mail admissions? I tried to withdraw my application from the secondary link but an error keeps showing up
     
  20. I was able to withdraw from the secondary portal. But if that’s not working for you, I would email them :)

    How often does Drexel send out acceptances/ rejections in a month? Will there be any more contact before April 30?

    Is there the hope to get an interview if you're on a pre-II hold?
