I'm still actually strongly considering going, because of the money I've been offered and how much I like other students I've talked to.
But anyway....I was accepted 3.69/160 early in the cycle. Mine was an unusual case so I didn't follow status checker etc. I'm surprised someone was snotty...my experiences with them have been good so far. Hrnnnnnn.

I am in the same boat - basically a full ride at Drexel ... its quite tempting to be debt free. I'm going to the ASD (also paid for) and hoping that will help with these decisions.

32 is almost a full ride...I think tuition is 33,700
Rankings come out in 10 days....should be interesting to see where they fall.
Actually I have to come out of lurking to comment on this... The Scholarship and Tuition is actually based on credits taken. So in the first year when the students take 30 Credits the scholarship is worth ~32k and tuition is ~37k. In later years students typically take 27 credits the scholarship is ~28K and Tuition ~33K. You can use the scholarship for up to 90 credits but only 85 are required to graduate (or something like that). Either way the scholarship equates to ~5k per year in tuition costs (little north the first year, little south the next two, though they can raise tuition and your scholarship wont increase as well).
At least this is the way my scholarship was presented to me in the "understanding your scholarship" note included in my admission packet.
FWIW I still think it's a good value, though the difference (1,700 expected vs ~5,000) is enough to push the needle towards other offers...
