    Anybody planning to/already submitted this application? I just sent mine in a few minutes ago... and I dearly wish that all applications were like this. No activity requests, no teacher recommendations, practically nothing. The app took 5 minutes to fill out, doesn't cost me anything (the application fee is waived), and all they want are my scores and a counselor recommendation that, from the looks of it, should take my counselor 10 minutes to fill out.

    Anybody else planning on it?

    Hmmm this is quite intriguing...I should consider it. But how is Drexel?

    It's not bad. University in Phili, with everything (law, med, etc). Nothing exceptional, a bit better than your average state school, pretty much a safety for you dave333 (if I remember, you were the guy that interviewed for yale on campus?). Basically, I decided to apply because
    1. it's such a short application
    2. it's 45 minutes from my home, making it an easy commute and saving me (potentially) a lot of money
    3. it's not a bad school

    Schools that send out applications like this will typically accept almost anyone. They better be giving you a pretty generous scholarship (10-15k) before you should even consider going there.

    Fordham accepts everyone? Cause I just got an email similar to the thing I got from Drexel.

    And the only way I'm considering drexel is if 1. they give me full ride or 2. nobody else accepts me.

    Fordham used to be a lot more prestigious, now its run of the mill. Not many people outside of the east coast know about it.

    Drexel giving you a full ride? Maybe if you get a bunch of smaller scholarships, but definitely not all from Drexel. Delusional.
