I would just like to here some comparisons between the two schools. I will be majoring in Math, so if any one could compare the two math depeartments that would be great. Thanks.

    I saw both and Saint Joseph's has more of a campus and for basketball, they have a lot of school spirit. It's in a suburban area, but can get right to philadelphia. Saint Joseph's university also is smaller and you will definitely get smaller classes.
    Drexel has an alright campus, but is a little bit more scattered. Drexel also has a co-op program where you can get up to 1 1/2 years of work experience and it's right next to UPenn and is right in philly
    I think that you should visit both universities and ask yourself whether you want to be right in a city, or do you want to have more of a campus and be able to go right into the city. At the end of the day, it's about what you want.

    Neither would be worth it without a significant scholarship.

    To TUOWL: Why not?

    Because the education you receive is not better than most state schools. If money is not an issue, and you truly want to go there, by all means go ahead, but neither school is worth loans/debt.

    Definitely Drexel.

    More prestige, co-op, higher admissions standards, and in Philly
