    It is, but too many blocks into Germantown is bad news.

    Most live in East Falls for M1 and M2 because of the convenience of living close to campus. Third year is variable, many stayed in East Falls, some moved. Center City is only convenient for rotations if you’re at Hahnemann. There is a lot more to do there, so that brings more students down that way.

    I suggest reading over your primary and secondary. If you have research experience know what your projects were and your role like the back of your hand. Know answers to common questions like why medicine and why Drexel. Don’t ramble, be concise, and slow down your speech. Practice answering questions with someone or by recording yourself with your webcam. Have questions prepared for your interviewer because the Q&A and tour will come after if you’re in the morning session

    Lol. This school is trying to get more competitive applicants with high stats in but it seems like they are forgetting the school's rank compared to other school and high stats applicants will likely go to top and mid tier or state schools with qualities they seek. P.S I'm not saying that the school isn't great and I am sure they are getting lots of great applicants! I am just stating facts since I seen mostly people with high stats get II.

    People like Philly which is why it is popular but high stats candidates pick better ranked school apparently which is why so many turning down their interviews. Are you a instate? good luck

    Anyone know what Drexel’s post-II acceptance rate is? The stats from USNWR that was posted on r/premed say it’s like 90%+ which is definitely wrong lol

    Does anyone know how to submit more than one update? In the secondary invite email it says they accept up to three, but if I'm not mistaken the portal is only allowing one. (One of each: resume, transcript, and update.)

    Heads up--they do take additional updates by email and then add it to your app. Kinda wish they said that right on the portal to make things easier.

    Hey so I formatted it as if I am sending a letter by mail. So I wrote my address on the top left, the schools address below on the right, and started by saying I am writing to update my application, then mentioned my recent updates, and ended with thanking the committee for their time and consideration and looking forward to hearing from the committee. Make sure to also include your AAMC ID on the letter. Good luck :)

    I really don't want to sift through 30 pages of content. Any standout questions I should be ready for before my interview Wednesday?
