i'm trying to decide whether or not to apply to the PIL program at Drexel. i think that my style of learning would fit well with the small group format, and i tend to study by making "thought maps" (like they do in PIL). however, i'm worried that PIL will be more time consuming than IFM, considering that students are required to research and present to classmates. of course, this research and presentation will probably help in the learning process. i hear that IFM students often don't go to class, opting instead to study at home and be more efficient (obviously this varries with the individual). any drexel perspectives out there? both "loveit" and "hateit" responses welcomed? thanks.
