I got an interview to this school, and I just wanted to know if there are nay people who have any information of this program that might enlighten me. As far as I know, it is a bs/md program and so I applied, but before I go to the interview it would be nice to get some feedback or opinions about this school's program. Thanks in advance.

    Hey if you guys have any questions about lehigh/drexel feel free to contact me at [email protected] or IM me at sideran8...I'm a soph in the program so I think I can answer most questions ya'll might have...and funkmasta...the program is a BA/MD not a BS/MD...but yeah as to pros and cons really quickly...its one of the easiest programs to get into...however Lehigh just really sucks and I really wish I had just stayed in-state and done the program between Jefferson and University of Delaware....cuz that way I would have had more fun in college and been going to a better med. school...

    it sux? why does lehigh suck? i heard good things about the campus, and i hear its pretty chill and not hardcore competitive.
  • srp204srp204 Registered User Posts: 5 New Member
    I don't know I just really dont like it...its on the side of a ****ing mountain and the frat scene is fun freshman year but after that it gets kinda dumb...and its not really hardcore competitive because there is no competition at all...like i mean its one of the easiest programs to get into and we've already have like 4 kids in my year kicked out for like cheating or low GPA...but yeah...that's my two cents...
  • funkmastafunkmasta Registered User Posts: 662 Member
    but the med school, drexel, is alright isn't it? I mean lehigh is just like an undergrad thing, i don't really care too much about that, but the med school seemed pretty cool when I went to see it....I have nothing to compare it to, but I liked it.

    Hey...I got an email from drexel telling me to pay a fee with a pin number and ID. Does this mean I was rejected/accepted? How do you find out?
