    I don't think any school has an actual minimum. The scores are just part of the story. But if you look on CollegeBoard, you'll find the average individual SAT range is 540-670. Also, from that same site, note:
    Very important admission factors:

    * Class Rank
    * Rigor of secondary school record
    * Standardized Test Scores
    * Academic GPA

    Important admission factors:

    * Character/Personal Qualities
    * Application Essay
    * Recommendations


    * Alumni Relation
    * Extracurricular Activities
    * Interview
    * Talent/Ability
    * Volunteer Work
    * Work Experience
    * First generation college student
    * Level of Applicant's Interest

    Drexel University is a great school, but it's not highly selective. Their acceptance rate is 63%.

    There is no minimum GPA or SAT score, but it is true that you need to have a certain GPA or SAT to be in a comfortable position for admission.

    I was not a stellar high school student, have an accumulated unweighted GPA of 2.7 and SAT score of 1620 and was wait-listed.

    My first semester, senior grades were pretty horrible, and if it wasn't for that I believe I would have been accepted.

    That should tell you that you'd be in good position with at least a 3.0 and a 1700 SAT score, however those are not the only things that affect your admission.

    Having a diverse background, strong record of community participation and a demonstrated interest in your intended major should all boost your chances for admission.
