Also he told me that he went to Temple for his MD and that he liked it so much that he stayed for his residency. Something else that really impressed me is that the testing is set up to be USMLE style to help students prep for the boards. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The food was good" More from this Member | Report Response

"The student led tour was great. They said that Temple's learning environment is very non-competitive and very supportive. The teachers are mostly PhD's who love to teach, and they are very accessible and willing to help. The curriculum is also appealing because they are switching it over to the newer organ-based system. The facilities are a bit old, and some are not very appealing. However, the number of hospital and medical center affiliations is remarkable, giving students a plethora of opportunities."

"The students absolutely love the school. I was VERY impressed with the newly redone clinical simulation facilities. They are all bright, spacious, and technologically advanced. I was also impressed with the students level of contentment with the school - they boasted a high level of administrative feedback and responsiveness to student issues and their general happiness at the school (being happy at med school is not something to be taken lightly!)"

"3rd and 4th years seem to be awesome at temple. The doctors at Temple hospital really treat their medical students as if they were residents, and there are a ton of opportunities to get your hands 'dirty' in. Students are allowed to help out with procedures/suture, etc. Great clinical practice!!

"Not much, I was not all that impressed with Temple. I think the only positive thing is if you want to go into ER medicine, Temple would be a great place because their ER sees one penetrating wound every night (on average.) The interview was fine but the students didn't seem all that competent in the grand scheme of things and said the only reason why they are there is they got into Temple and nowhere else." More from this Member | Report Response

Although the new building wont be finished any time soon, they have made improvements to the old building and it seems that they will continue to do so. They seem to emphasize giving students clinical experience even before third year so you already have experience when doing clerkships. Campus is well lit and patroled by huge police force.

(I'm interested in becoming a pediatrician) The opportunities for early clinical contact are tremendous! Plus, the cases that come into the ER are not your run-of-the-mill problems (like gun shot wounds: the students on my tour told us that they have at least one a day) because of the area it is located in. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Poor organization/communication from the admissions office staff." More from this Member | Report Response

"Honestly, very little. The only thing I did not like about the interview day was there was a lot of empty time where we sat in a room waiting for the next activity/interview on the schedule. I wish there had been something for us to do during this free time." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day was a bit disorganized. They gave you a few appointments and directions on how to get there, but otherwise let you roam around for the rest of the day. There were a lot of sitting and waiting around periods, but you did get to talk to the other applicants more." More from this Member | Report Response

"No student housing, tuition cost." More from this Member | Report Response

"The surrounding neighborhood is sketchy. I know people said that on SDN a lot, but I didn't know quite how much. Also, I thought my student tour guides were a bit strange... at other schools I interviewed, student guides often split up so interviewees can ask them questions. Here, they clumped up with each other and talked about how their classmates are doing or about that last exam they took. Really? :-/ So at some points, it was literally the tour guides talking to each other in front and all of us interviewees in a separate clump following them. Then at lunch they started talking about how they started taking certain pills to stay awake at night." More from this Member | Report Response

"The area Temple is in is not nice and all of the students live at least 30 mins away." More from this Member | Report Response

"The methodology of my faculty interview, being that everyone had said that the interviews are laid back and low stress. The admissions office seems to not be on point with everything, they won't be meeting for the next 4 weeks so I won't hear back for a month and a bit. Kind of ridiculous." More from this Member | Report Response

"The area. I saw an old woman get arrested. And someone else saw a cop holding up a gun...." More from this Member | Report Response

"Like many OOS applicants, the location is in a really shady area. I didn't find it to be too much of a problem, though, nor do many of Temple's medical students." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location of the school could be seen as a detriment. Additionally, the tour guides led students into an anatomy lab, which could have been an unnecessary stress for some students on this particular day." More from this Member | Report Response

"no student housing, location" More from this Member | Report Response

"Location. This school is in the worst neighborhood of Philadelphia, and the fact that the tour pointed out the fact that they have "stadium lights" on top of the hospital so that the streets have "cloudy day" levels of light all night long for safety reasons was slightly disconcerting." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really. I had heard that Temple is in a shady part of Philly, but, as far as shady urban areas go, it was not so bad. Also, there was a lot of security." More from this Member | Report Response

"the area was not as bad as some people described it but it is not a very lovely area. but thats why they have excellent clinical experiences" More from this Member | Report Response

"my interviewed left me waiting for almost 40 minutes in a hospital waiting room. Obviously as a physician, he had things going on, but I found it disrespectful especially since I was not able to get any information to even confirm that he would still be able to see me. I was about 10 mins from leaving... also... the school is located in a bad area of philly, almost all students commute from a wide range of areas, the tour guides said that less then 50% of students attend class, not much class unity" More from this Member | Report Response

"location can be better, but better than what I anticipated, expensive tuition of $46K for OOS" More from this Member | Report Response

"Yeah, so it's not in the greatest neighborhood, but at least the patient population is diverse and the proximity to downtown is nice! Living in a city is exhilirating" More from this Member | Report Response

"Buildings look very plain. Others who've posted feedback talk about how old the school is. Don't misinterpret this to mean that things look like they're falling apart or run-down. Instead, I would say that because some of the facilities look a bit old, they feel a bit plain." More from this Member | Report Response

"The fact that they're on PROBATION!" More from this Member | Report Response

"none" More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing really." More from this Member | Report Response

"Neighborhood isn't great, but it isn't horrible either. Interview lasted about 20 minutes, maybe 15. That sort of scared me, but the two people before me all interviewed for that long as well, so I guess it's normal. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not like that they had no resident housing for med students and it is in a somewhat dangerous neighborhood" More from this Member | Report Response

"The only negative aspect might be the immediate location (north philly), but on the bright side, you really get to see unbelievable cases (because it is a local hospital). " More from this Member | Report Response

"The area is very squalid. The two blocks surrounding the hospital has the highest stabbing rate in all of Philly and Pennsylvania, according to our tour guide. That's good if you're in the ER working, but kind of bad since you have to leave work every day. Also, there are flood lights on Broad Street to make sure there aren't any dark corners. It felt like a prison." More from this Member | Report Response

"We didn't get to see the ER, though we were supposed to." More from this Member | Report Response

"School looks pretty run down, ancient facilities, small library, anatomy labs looked crowded. Several students during the tour told us to go to law school, which was the BIGGEST turn off for me. The Financial Aid advisor was the most boring and dry person I've ever met. He gave a 30 minute lecture on Financial Aid and told us that if you can't afford medical school, get ready to go home to ask mommy and daddy for $$$." More from this Member | Report Response

"financial aid presenter was rude and financial aid procedures seem unfair. There is no merit-based aid at all, apparently." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location of the school isn't the greatest and the Dean was not able to meet with applicants at the beginning of the day. The receptionist was somewhat rude." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing, I work down the street from the Med school so the location doesnt bother me. I like that there are three hospitals literally across the street from the medical school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Didn't see too much of the facilities. Skipped library, gym, didn't go in class room b/c in session." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much. Just that the class is full and may be difficult to obtain an acceptance." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview was short and I was only asked 4 questions, two of which could be answered with one word answers. My interviewer was done with his questions in 10 min. I used the rest of the time to ask questions of him that gave me the chance to expose my personality a bit and demonstrate my interest in the program. Not to be full of myself, but I think there is plenty in my app. that we could have discussed in order for him to get an understanding of who I am. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Facilities weren't top rate, but not too bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"location isnt so great, but thats the kind of place that generates the best doctors" More from this Member | Report Response

"The location of the school is quite scary.." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer told me that the class is probably getting close to being filled and candidates are probably going to start getting wait-listed as opposed to getting acceptance letters." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much. only that the medical school facilities are not top notch. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Sure the area wasn't the greatest but it definitely doesn't deserve the "slum" tag everyone is writing on here. If you've lived in a big city (NY, LA, Chicago, etc.) then you will see that it just looks like any old part of downtown. I mean, yeah, I wouldn't walk around here by myself at midnight down a dark alley but that's common sense people, not because of where it is. Other than that, the only other thing I didn't like was that I had one guy in my group who was a total gunner - I just hate being around people like that!" More from this Member | Report Response

"No one lives near the school, so it seems you have to work hard to get a community feeling as a student there." More from this Member | Report Response

"the area isn't great but it's not that bad (unless you're super sheltered). it's not like you have to live there, just go to classes and the hospital." More from this Member | Report Response

"It is in a god-awful location with crumbling houses all around the area that stretches for miles. I drove through most of Philadelphia and it reminded me, for some reason, of Detroit. You have to live far away to go to school there, and it's expensive, and I hope this is not the only school I end up getting into." More from this Member | Report Response

"Not much financial aid" More from this Member | Report Response

""No frills" can be bad, too. It's in a rough neighborhood--that's why there are so many patients and so many of them with end-state diseases and penetrating trauma. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Safety seems to be a big issue here." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer wasn't engaging at all but I talked to 2 current students who were interviewed by the same person and they had similar experiences and got in. Students who park on the street have had their cars broken into. Lots of people live far from campus and drive. The phili subway is unbelievably crappy." More from this Member | Report Response

"location of the school" More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities were not that great and the neighborhood was scary. the tourguides said that you shouldnt walk outside in when its dark out and that 90% of the students do not live near that area" More from this Member | Report Response

"Students entirely live off-campus, away from the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The individual schedule to do the initial presentation was late. She came during our lunch with the students and tried to talk to us then but we were all pretty hungry and didn't really listen to her." More from this Member | Report Response

"loud traffic made it hard to hear the tour guides outside, the urban city locale wasn't very aesthetically appealing to the rural/suburban in me." More from this Member | Report Response

"i was disappointed to see that there is no campus housing, even for first years (which means that everyone lives by themselves away from the school/hospital)" More from this Member | Report Response

"there is no med student housing "on campus." that said, the students didn't really seem to mind, said the commute (in general at most 15 minutes) wasn't a problem and housing options were nice in the surrounding areas." More from this Member | Report Response

"The location of the school is not the greatest. However, the hospital does see a much larger volume of less "privileged" patients, which means that the students will most likely find less resistance when they are in the hospital learning." More from this Member | Report Response

"as everyone says - temple med school's immediate neighborhood is kind of skitchy - but surburban girl that i am -- i'd say it has character. i paparazzied all the rundown buildings and graffiti with my camera. i'm SUCH a tourist. and i was also by three different people for money down the block from the school. even got to hear one woman's entire life story when she appealed to me to find god and to give her money. i ended up buying her food in rite aid. it was an experience :)" More from this Member | Report Response

"While not as bad as some people describe it to be, the neighborhood surrounding Temple is pretty unpleasant." More from this Member | Report Response

"Financial aid presentation (not very helpful), The tour was rushed and we didn't see as much as I wanted, the fact that the admissions dir tells you you are interviewing for the "continuing students list"-basically the waiting list...you feel like "well, why am I here???""

"cost" More from this Member | Report Response

"Neighborhood is not safe-looking at ALL. The school looks rather old in parts. No student housing, most students live in the suburbs or this area about 20 minutes away by public transport. Considering the cold and the not-so-safe looking neighborhoods around temple, that could be a huge hassle." More from this Member | Report Response

"students commute because the area around the school is so ghetto." More from this Member | Report Response

"how scary the surrounding neighborhood was, i learned that the er gets at least one to two gun shot or stab wound victims a day (great clinical experience but bad if your the victim), that it is necessary for the school to have big spot lights around the school to make is safer at night, the it is necessary for cops to walk you to your car if you leave the school once in turns dark" More from this Member | Report Response

"that there is a lottery during rotation years that determines where you "have" to go...and also that there is really no campus to the school---but these choices really depend on the person and other people may like this...also, the financial aid doesnt seem particularly helpful to me at temple..."

"Nothing" More from this Member | Report Response

"No campus housing and parking was kind of bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"It seems as though the students have a relatively easy first year. USLME scores hit the national average but nothing beyond. The interview day seemed pretty disorganized.

"The facilities were horrible and run-down. The library was essentially two rooms full of dated journals and a computer lab. The location in north Philly isn't great either. The student tour guide was also said that the first year curriculum isn't very rigorous, which could either be a plus or minus depending on the person." More from this Member | Report Response

"location (rough neighborhood, everyone lives away from campus), buildings kind of old, small bookstore, libraries didn't look very comfortable, no "community"-feel" More from this Member | Report Response

"The students leading the tour said that you don't have to go to all classes or buy all the books. I guess you can see this as a positive or negative depending on your learning style." More from this Member | Report Response

"The area surrounding Temple is not only a rough area, as others have mentioned but many buildings are boarded up...it's just depressing. Also the Temple facilities are pretty old." More from this Member | Report Response

"I found the facilities to be rather small and meager. The school is actively constructing new buildings and rennovating the old ones, however. Also, my interviewer's taking a phonecall during my interview made me a bit nervous." More from this Member | Report Response

"Nothing major, although it seems that all of the students have to live off campus, the building classes are in is old, and the gym on campus is very small." More from this Member | Report Response

"Area's a little rough, but not as bad as I thought. " More from this Member | Report Response

"You have to pay for parking and it's not safe to park on the street." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities are small and not as high tech as most school. Despite having diversity within the student body, the racial relations seemed a bit strained more so than at many of the schools I've visited...so much for the progressive North. The financial aid seemed a bit stingy, especially since I'll be paying it back for 10-15 years." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interviewer, who was a researcher not a clinician. Everyone else in my group had good interviews. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school facilities are old. REALLY old. They are building a new building (14 stories) however its not going to be done until late 07 so that means we probably won't see it." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's in one of the roughest areas of Philly." More from this Member | Report Response

"I wish the probation issue was taken care of already; that would make my decision easier." More from this Member | Report Response

"It's a small school in terms of facilities. Also, you really seem to have to search out opportunities there. Both are in the process of being addressed- they are building a new huge classroom and lab facility, and students are setting up new groups now that will address alot of holes in the extracurricular/international opportunities. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I did not like Philly too much." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was a lot of construction and drilling going on. One of the applicants jokingly remarked, "That must be the dental school downstairs." so for that killer one-liner i suppose it was worth it. The surrounding area is a little rough." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, there was just a bad aura at Temple, for me. The facilities are pretty poor. I wouldn't get to use the new medical school bldg they are planning to construct. You can't live near campus. No safe restaurants or anything else worth while near campus. Lectures are 8 to 3 everyday. The tour, and the whole experience, didn't leave me thinking about the positives of Temple but rather the negatives. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Obviously Temple is not the Hamptons. There are a lot of ghetto elements that surround and permeate the campus. Security is a premium, with football stadium lights + tons of police but even then I didn't feel completely safe. The probation thing doesn't help either though they are open about it and seem to be proactive in addressing the problem." More from this Member | Report Response

"nothing really" More from this Member | Report Response

"The area the school is locted in (North Philly) and the fact that they are on probation with the LMCE for student indebtness and aging facilities. But during our orientation with admissions, they fully addressed the issue and hope to be off of probation by Feb. 2004. I really liked how they were up-front about that! They are alos breaking ground for a new med school building beginning next year. Looks quite promising!" More from this Member | Report Response

"North Philly isn't the nicest area, but not a big deal. They also made kind of a big deal about the school being on probation, although, I think they've sorted out most of the problems." More from this Member | Report Response

"All the tour guides did was talk about how they get drunk all the time! The interview was extremely short. School Being on probation" More from this Member | Report Response

"i hate the area where the school is located, the buildings are not connected in anyway except that they are on different sides of a city street. in other words, the campus is not enclosed." More from this Member | Report Response

"The area...beware if you haven't been to a poor urban area before it is shocking at first." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was upset about how my interview went. The facilities were among the worst of the medical schools I interviewed at. I was also concerned about safety issues on campus. Temple is on probation." More from this Member | Report Response

"Our tour guides told us that they liked the school, but for most of our tour they complained about how much work they had and how stressed they were. They seemed pretty stressed. The area, of course, leaves quite a bit to be desired--it's very destitute and run down and rather depressing. Cafeteria wasn't great. Traditional curriculum.

"still on probation, but as far as I could tell (maybe I'm being way naive) they are on probation not because students become bad doctors but because the schools facilities are poor (need more space, no money) So the probation does not bother me. The school is in the middle of bad neighborhood (was told, "its not dangerous, just dirt poor"), also not as much funding for MD/PhD as some other schools, lab buildings are run down it seemed, even thought that is superficial" More from this Member | Report Response

"Probation issue. Seems to be a lack of funding. The area isn't so hot, but the school itself is better than I had anticipated" More from this Member | Report Response

"In the center city where my hotel was, parking was expensive. There is a lot of talk about the bad neighborhood that Temple is in, but the immediate area is nicer than I expected." More from this Member | Report Response

"The facilities, as they have noted, do need improvement. Its hard to get there by public transportation, and if you go a block in any direction from the school the neighborhood is not safe. Also, because of this students live all over the city. One friend said that she has felt as if there is racial segregation there. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Lecture halls, size of the library, the fact that my interviewer didn't really seem to be too enthusiastic about interviewing people that day.

"Facilities, Probationary Status" More from this Member | Report Response

"the area of the health science campus is not the best, pretty much all the students commute. the day only gave us the opportunity to meet 3 students, and i felt like i didn't really learn that much about the school during the tour and talks. also i didn't think they addressed the probation issue thoroughly enough." More from this Member | Report Response

"The lecture halls" More from this Member | Report Response

"It's not so much the curriculum but rather the envirnonment and facilities. The neighborhood can't get rougher. And the SOM facilities are OLD. Perhaps that is the reason why it was placed on probation by the LCME. Being on probation really doesn't affect the education itself but definitely left a bad impression on me." More from this Member | Report Response

"The probation issue. One of the reasons they're on probation is because of the very high student indebtedness. This is definitely an issue for me. Also, I'm interested in international health rotations/electives and there seemed to be little structure or funding in place for such things. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The suger coating that was given to the hardwork that is done in medical school." More from this Member | Report Response

"It is located in the ghetto. Do not get yourself lost in this area! Park your car in a hospital garage. Most students live pretty far away. This prick gave us a financial aid seminar, where he basically yelled at us because students spend more then their budget allows and get themselves into trouble. "I can't increase your budget. If you run out of money, I'll hand you the phone and say, call mommy and daddy." Jackass." More from this Member | Report Response

"Students don't seem to have enough time for a life at all. Our tour guide said, "I'm either studying or thinking about where to study next...you won't have time for a hobby or more than an hour to yourself on weekday evenings."" More from this Member | Report Response

"The classroom facilities are not aging all that well. Also, no housing for students near the campus, many people have cars or carpool to the med school "campus"" More from this Member | Report Response

"What impressed me the least was the fact that the caferia is at least a block away. So I have to go outside to eat. That sucks, especially for the winter time. This shows you that there isnt any negative things about it. Some people say that they dont like the neighborhood and that its in the middle of the ghetto. But I grew up in the ghetto (Newark, NJ), so I really didnt let that get to me. I walked around Philly with a suit and nothing hapened. They are very friendly people. Of course one is not gonna get caught walking around the neighborhood in the middle of the night alone. Thats a target for getting robbed or mugged. But according to statistics, crime rate is not too high. Many assaults dont happen, considering the number of cops around. So you will defintiely be protected.

"That I would be asked to give my "dream wish" for where I will be in 10 years. I did not feel comfortable telling the interviewer a very specific specialty I see myself in as I don't have a concrete idea.

"There are no supermarkets along broad st. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Temple will be switching to an organ-based curriculum for the class of 2009." More from this Member | Report Response

"We did not get a chance to see the facilities the way I would've liked...Also, the neigborhood is not that bad, trust me! If you've never left the suburbs, yes. If you're a relatively cultured person whose traveled to many cities, it's a typical urban city with good parts and parts you have to be more cautious in...if it concerns you that much, scratch of 90% of the US med schools and only apply to UCLA." More from this Member | Report Response

"There is no on-campus housing for medical students" More from this Member | Report Response

"Cab drivers do try to rip you off, esp if you're from out of town. Public transport is much better...the subway and train system are definitely worth it (the train runs about every 1/2 hour directly from the airport to the city -there's one stop right next to Drexel- for only about 5$ compared to 25+ for a cab)..where I'm from, public transport is sketchy or nonexistent, so I definitely like Philly" More from this Member | Report Response

"admissions are only from a wait list this late in the year." More from this Member | Report Response

"The medical school is many blocks away from Temple University. Also (this is important) Temple's class for this year is FULL. That's right, they are full -- you are interviewing for a spot on the waiting list. " More from this Member | Report Response

"how awful the public transportation was on a day that it was FREEZING " More from this Member | Report Response

"If you are staying in a hotel and take the subway to Temple (cheaper than taxi), don't take the Cecil B Moore stop. Everyone there will tell you to take this stop but that leads to the undergraduate campus. It's two stops more (I believe it starts with an A...sorry I forgot) and it will drop you off where the law and medical school is.

More from this Member | Report Response

"You should give yourself at LEAST 30 minutes to find parking once you get the the school. Also, the lot they recommend always has parking cones at the entrance, even if it's not full--just wait and they'll move them for you." More from this Member | Report Response

"The area is not nearly as bad as people make it out to be. Of course you wouldn't want to walk alone at night, but you wouldn't walk alone at night in any city. The area was equivalent to many other cities I have seen." More from this Member | Report Response

"If I would have realized how close a lot of things were to my hotel (e.g. the variuos museums) I would have planned my trip better and gotten to see more stuff. You can walk around to most places (although I am pretty active and consider walking a mile to be no big deal)" More from this Member | Report Response

"all the negative stuff would've been nice." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview wasn't in the building they told me to go to , I just got the interviewer's name there" More from this Member | Report Response

"The age/condition of the facilities" More from this Member | Report Response

"How confusing it would be to get there by subway. Make sure you arrive ahead of time! I left two and a half hours early, got lost, and made it 30 minutes before my interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"That Philly cabs are always 10-15 minutes late." More from this Member | Report Response

"Med campus also houses dental school, pharmacy school, nursing school, plus hospitals/research facilities/etc, so you have the sense that the campus is a bigger place with more happening than at other schools I've seen where there's just a building housing the med school, and that's it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great day, great school. There are two thirty minute interviews, one with a student that is blind. One with a faculty member which is open file." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great looking school, we'll see if I end up picking it after the interesting interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"Temple is awesome. Great facilities. Great Faculty. Great students. Research Opportunities. Great location (NOT as scary as people say... AT ALL. Don't worry about the safety aspect.) The best thing about Temple is that it is progressive. It is doing everything it can to cater to it's students and remain on the cutting edge of medicine." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were two interviews: a student and a faculty interview. I ended up talking to the faculty interviewer for 30 min longer than scheduled because we got into an in depth discussion of our respective research fields. The student was a little less casual than the prof, and she seemed kinda nervous to be interviewing. Still really enthusiastic about the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"Make sure your interview email reminder has the times on it. Mine did not and I figured it was not a problem since the lady in the Admissions Office told me I had afternoon interviews. Well, I'm glad I showed up early, because my first was scheduled for 10 AM (although the email told me to come at 10:45 AM!). You should also know that the interviews run one "blind" and one "open-file". So, prepare yourself accordingly. Stay with a student host if you can! It's a lot of fun."

"Temple requires two interviews, one open interview with someone on the admission committee, and another with either a faculty member or a 3rd or 4th year student that is a closed interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"There are 2 interviews: one blind and one open. My blind interview went the usual 30 minutes, but my open file interviewer asked if I had any time restraints and when I said no, it went for 1 hour. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I actually had 2 interviewers, one with a faculty (open-file) and one with a fourth year (closed-file/blind). Both are very relaxed, conversational style interviews. Also, being a Temple student, and having a family member that studied at Temple, they knew that I knew a lot about the area and the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I didn't think that I was interested beforehand and it turns out that right now I'm not - but for a very different reason than before. A lack of gunners was their big selling point. The students and faculty continually referred to the fact that Temple doesn't accept 'gunners' so if you come to Temple, you don't need to worry about them. A gunner is someone who is over-competitive and in my mind often insecure. I wonder who is more insecure, the gunners or the people that are afraid of them. Also, Temple has been in business for a really long time and hasn't had to change its name like Hahnemahn I mean AUH I mean Drexel. I originally didn't think that I could be in that 'hood, but it wasn't that bad." More from this Member | Report Response

"I loved the doctor I interviewed with, very easygoing conversation. The students were very informative and happy with their decision to attend temple." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a very relaxing interview experience. No surprise...a regular conversation." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very laid back. The interviewer (Mr. Schultze) did not put me on the spot at all. He just asked some open-ended conversational questions. It was extremely stress free, even though it was my first interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"One of the best parts of the day was that there was a 30 minute financial aid session which was really really useful." More from this Member | Report Response

"The Interviewer kept on telling me of my accomplishment and I nodded in agreement" More from this Member | Report Response

"Weird. My interviewer was pleasant, but seemed at best impartial and at worst disinterested. Twice he answered the questions he asked me, "So then, I guess the reason you did xxxxx was because of xxxxx. Is this right?" He was right both times, but it left little room for me to elborate. That combined with his detached manner made for an opaque and cool interview, where I felt loquacious. Wasn't sure if I should tone it down to be in stride with the tenor he set, but then I thought, "whatever" and decided to just be myself. I left having no good feel on how I did." More from this Member | Report Response

"The experience was positive. However my interviewer didn't really ask any engaging questions, rather it was up to me to elaborate." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer was kind of different- not exactly intimidating, but just acted completely rushed and uninterested. I had to wait over 45 minutes (as he was running late) in a waiting room in the hospital. Got to see more than one person puke on the floor while waiting...kind of unique interview experience. Overall, though, the students were very normal and down to earth. This is a huge plus for me! I like the basic things about the school- grading policy, integrated curriculum, community opportunities. Would be very happy to (eventually) get accepted off the waitlist if possible!" More from this Member | Report Response

"I had my interview at the end of the day which was nice because I got rid of my nervous jitters on the campus tour and during the admissions presentations." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer arrived about twenty minutes late, which was a little unsettling, but it turned out fine. The interview was fast-paced, but overall quite laid back. The tour was great. The financial aid meeting, however, was a little dull. They also really enforce the issue that they're recovering from their accreditation problems." More from this Member | Report Response

"Everything went well. The financial aid talk was very helpful and the student tour guides seemed to really like the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"At first I was unimpressed by the old buildings and bad location, but as the day went on, I realized that for me these things are superficial and the MD program at Temple offers great clinical training and volunteer opportunities." More from this Member | Report Response

"people talk about them not having nice facilities, but i didn't think they were bad at all. i put 7 of ten for stress just because it was my first interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"The guy just asked me questions, had no responsiveness in his face and wrote down my answers on a piece of paper. He kept asking me over and over why I would leave my current state and live in philly. He wouldn't accept my answer. The worst part was that it didn't feel like a stress interview, it just felt like a bad interview..." More from this Member | Report Response

"Very low-stress" More from this Member | Report Response

"I had an afternoon interview so I arrived about 10:00 for the general info and financial aid session. Then we had our tour with medical students which ended with lunch. The students were not sad but they did not seem particularly enthusiastic about Temple. After lunch I had my interview and left. My interviewer was really interesting and nice, though."

"Very mellow day, short schpeal about the school, tour with 4 students, lunch, and then interview with an awesome doctor." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great school, bad neighborhood. But to be honest this actually works in the school's favor in many ways. The school itself has some great clinical resources and seems to give students plenty of options during third and fourth year. In terms of the actual interview, I stressed out more than I should have. The interview was even less than I expected, even after knowing that Temple's interviews are very non-confrontational and relaxed." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was pretty taken aback because my interviewer basically asked me questions that he could have easily answered just by looking at my application." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very relaxed, we just talked about my file, and what I thought about the school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Traffic coming from south NJ was HORRIBLE...good thing I left really early. I arrived at the admissions office and was sent to the children's hospital for my interview with a pediatrician. Then I waited in the admissions waiting area until the info session and financial aid presentation. Four students gave us a tour and ate lunch with us (we were given $8 vouchers to use). " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interviewer got caught in traffic so while I waited I talked with one of her grad students who was very nice. When my interviewer arrived, we basically just sat and talked and it was very low-key." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was a positive experience. The administrative staff were very sweet. AN dthe tour guides were really informative. ALso, the guides said they were not a part of the ADCOM. Many people raise eyebrows over Temple's location, but if you spent any part of life growing up in the city, then the location should not bother you." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was very conversational and we mainly talked about my background and experiences. No ethical questions. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, I really liked it. The facilities are a bit cramped or outdated, and the area isn't great, but I felt safe and comfortable in the environment, and I really liked the students and the people there in general, I definitely liked the atmosphere." More from this Member | Report Response

"it was a laid back and relaxed experience. It also gave the oppurtunity to learn about the schools" More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview experience was good. I messed up a little bit and blanked out when he asked for my extra currics (my mind just died at this point for some reason), but I recovered. I made it very very very clear that I was very interested in their school. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The person I interviewed with was not a doctor and at times it was difficult to explain my research/clinical experiences with him understanding. It reminded me of the time I explained my research to my grandmother, although she is a sharp cookie. I felt like I was carrying the interview more than he was. I'm not at all trying to sound boastful, but since I did get in, I really felt like the interviewers were lacking. Overall though, it was an easy interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was great. I arrived at the building to get my folder and the staff was very friendly. Then one of the staff members walked me to my interviewer's office and reassured me that I would do fine. The actual interview consisted of his going over my app with me and making sure the numbers were correct. Then he asked me a few questions and allowed me to ask him some questions. He said his job was to sell the school to me (which he did a good job of). After the interview we had a couple sessions and then the tour. The 2nd year students were wonderful! They honestly answered all my questions. Overall I had a good time at the school." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was not impressed by Temple. The interviewer wasn't interested in anything I had to say and went down the question list without engaging in any conversation. The students that led the tour did not paint a pretty picture and didn't seem to be enjoying their time there (maybe it was because exams were coming up, but I didn't get a good vibe).

"The interviewer was very nice... conversation flowed naturally" More from this Member | Report Response

"First I was with all the other interviewees for the day. A lady came and spoke to us about the stats of the school, how the classes worked, etc. Then a man talked to us about financial aid. Then we got a tour of the campus by four second year students. The school is great, it's location just sucks. Then I had my interview with the Pharmacology professor. She was really nice and the interview basically consisted of her reading back my application to me." More from this Member | Report Response

"Pretty typical interview day, I would suggest scheduling your interview for the afternoon so that you can get the tour and info session in to gather some more ammo for the interview. Rediculously low stress, my interviewer really didn't ask me any questions, and it was over really quickly, but i got in!" More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview was pretty short. I'm not sure if that's good or bad. But the school was really great, and the students seem very happy and social." More from this Member | Report Response

"Once you get to the admissions office, they give you the name of your interviewer and directions to where his office is located. I interviewed with Dr. Raul DeLa Cadena. He was very pleasant, very nice, easy to have a conversation with. I was only asked a few specific questions, and the rest was just us going off on tangents (soccer, research, school innovations, etc). " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was pretty laid back. It was really hard to read my interviewer. I'm pretty sure the interview was open file, but he definitely didn't look at my apps. So, I made sure I carefully forced in everything I wanted to say from his general questions. Overall, my interviewer was really cool. The interview itself was very conversational. I really like Temple. Hopefully I get in!!" More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very laid back. I got a great impression of the students and faculty, however my interviewer was behind schedule. I had to wait about 25 minutes and then my interview was very short. He didn't ask too many questions, and didn't talk too much at all. Just the basics." More from this Member | Report Response

"I luckily had my interview before the "interview day" got started.(See NEG impressions). This was followed by a financial aid presentation and then a tour with 4 med students. This was probably the best tour that I have been on. The students were really enthusiastic about temple and its programs. They are actually building a new medical school building. We then had lunch and were free to go. There was supposed to be an informational session before the tour but the person who was going to give it was held up. Though she did show up during lunch to chat with us a bit. Location is always a hot topic with Temple and truth be told it is not in a "great" location. BUT the metro has a stop directly across from the school and they have security out the wazoo. In addition, the patient population presents a unique oprtunity for students to work with symptoms that you may not otherwise see. All this to say that it is really not that bad. If you have ever spent some time in any large city you will find that this is no different. Philly has just as many good parts as bad parts. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview experience at Temple is beyond relaxing. The interviewer was incredibly conversational and didn't want to stress me out. He did most of the talking, actually. After he would finish his long lecture, he would ask me if I had any questions. I had a few, and he went off on tangents, answering my questions in ways that I would not even have imagined possible. It's difficult for me to gauge my own success simply because I was asked such few questions." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was in the morning, and it was a little awkward because my interviewer asked me very specific questions about the other schools I had applied to. The tour was given by 3 students, 1st and 2nd years, and they seemed very down to earth and relaxed. I felt like I could feel at home at this school-there was a large sense of community here. The students live off campus, because the area where the school is is a little scary/ghetto, but that makes for great clinical experiences early on. Overall, I thought I did poorly on my interview, but I guess I was wrong because I got accepted! " More from this Member | Report Response

"One interviewer (PhD), really friendly guy. Was cracking jokes and making things pretty comfortable, but then asked a tough question about my crappy MCAT score and some bad grades - but the awkward thing was that he did it with a smile. It's as if someone you are getting along with really well just kicks you in the balls and then keeps on smiling and talking as if nothing happened. It was just weird how it played out. Be prepared to ask a lot of questions. I knew this coming in and had a boat loade of good questions. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The school was more or less what I expected, with a few exceptions. The neighborhood could become a problem after a while, but this also offers clinical experiences that can't be found elsewhere. The students were the highlight of the interview. They believe in the education they are receiving at Temple and were willing to share all aspects of their experience thus far. They went beyond what was required of them as part of the tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"It was very short. I was asked 3 questions and then my interviewer asked if I had any question for her. I had 5 good questions prepared." More from this Member | Report Response

"Temple was definitely not one of my top schools going into the day but I was impressed by it. The interview was not stressful except that it was my first one. But the interview didn't really ask me much anyway, just the 3 questions below. Then I asked him a few questions. The tour was good and the students were very nice though and that was a positive experience. " More from this Member | Report Response

"very positive" More from this Member | Report Response

"This was my first interview, but i really liked and respected the people at Temple. The administration emphasizes that stressful interviews do not bring out the true character in people and they are consistent with this sentiment. the interview is very much like a conversation. Also, its nice to know that all the inteviewers serve on the admissions committee. So when they make the final decision, then someone who has actually spoken to you is speaking for you. The school is sort of a commuter school which has its advantages and disadvantages. The area surrounding the school is simply too dangerous, which is good for teaching, but not for living. However, the students live in the same neighborhood, so they have the opportunity to hang out with one another and they are very close. One last thing which might please you. They make their final decision within a couple of weeks. " More from this Member | Report Response

"They only asked really easy questions like, Why Temple? And asked me to elaborate on things presented in my AMCAS application." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was a mix-up with my interview scheduling. I was supposed to meet with one doctor, but she was myseteriously out of town, so I ended up meeting with a professor who didn't know he was going to be interviewing me, had never seen my file, and didn't know anything about me. I was really thrown by this last minute change and I think it negatively impacted how I did on my interview." More from this Member | Report Response

"There were very few people interviewing on the day I went but they said that Thursdays get really full. The financial aid talk was informative because I didn't know too much about government loans. The good news is that we are guarunteed a $38,500 loan each year of med school but the bad news is that its not nearly enough to pay for this school. The neighborhood where Temple is has buildings that are falling apart and huge chunks missing from the sidewalk but I was impressed that Temple itself is pretty nice. The tour guides were great and the cafeteria food was less than great. Overall I came away with a much better impression than I expected to have. I could really see myself being happy there. If I wanted to specialize in pediatrics or emergency medicine I would be even more enthusiastic about it." More from this Member | Report Response

"Temple seems like it provides a good all-around medical education for its students. Although the school isn't much to look at and research oppurtunities are below average, the basics of a good med school are there." More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was first thing in the morning. The interviewer was so pleasant and smiled the entire time. We talked for 5 minutes, I asked some questions for the next 5, then I was done. The gen presentation and fin aid pres. were horrible. The tour guides were great, very honest, but we basically peeked into the hospital and the classroom, and that's all. the day was very short, which is a pos and a neg I guess. Ddin't get the impression that they were recruiting me, which explains why they admit so many people every year just to fill the class." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall the day went ok. My interviewer lacked any kind of enthusiasm or emotion so it was hard to tell if I was doing poorly or doing well. Also, he did not ask any follow-up questions to any of the answers I provided so I assume that he wasn't that interested in me." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview was very relaxing and my interviewer put me at ease. He brought up the 'where did you interview/apply question' and then proceeded to mention his links to all those schools and the merits of those programs..it kind of threw me off a bit, but he went back to temple...Didn't really ask any questions...just waited for me to ask them" More from this Member | Report Response

"Temple is a good place to be, the financial aid talk will scare you, Philly is a great city and the hospital is not in nearly as ghetto an area as other people who posted here said." More from this Member | Report Response

"I was signed in and then made to sit in a room with about 15 other interviewees. We sat for a while. Everyone on the staff was very nice and gave us a thorough orientation on the school and financial aid. Then we toured (bring gloves!) and then applicants slowly left to go to their interviews. You're free to go after that." More from this Member | Report Response

"Well, I was VERY unnerved because I took the train without my morning coffee, slept past Philly, and wound up in Trenton, NJ. GAAAAAH! . So I missed the info sessions, but I caught the tour and thank god I was not late for the interview. My interviewer knew this (dammit!) so I went in there very nervous, but relaxed halfway through. He was pretty easygoing. I lived in Philly before, and I really really hate that city. It's got all the soul-sucking ghetto and crap of a city with few of the advantages. But I was pleasantly surprised by Temple, and would definitely go if accepted. Despite nasty nasty philly I think there's great people at the school.

"The day started off with a general presentation of what to expect for the rest of the day. Then came the financial aid presentation that was very informative. After that we (about 14 girls) went on the school tour which was followed by lunch and the interview. The tour guides were amazing and seemed to be really content with there decision to go to Temple. They made is seem as if they had so much free time to hang out and play organized sports that the school provides. The surrounding area is beyond scary and thats coming from a girl who lives in a not so good part of queens. I found out that all of the students live 10 minutes away from school in the nice safe neighborhoods which kind of look like long island towns. Anyway, everyone basically hangs out in their town and only comes to school to study. By the way, everyone eats out of these trucks that park outside of school and sell fast food for really cheap. My interviewer was this old tiny lady that was so nice. She took notes on my amcas application before I arrived. The interview consisted of her reading out things that she learned about me from my application and me nodding my head. I was accepted eight dayss later. " More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was stress free. Before the interview I meet with the Recruitment, Admissions and Retention director. He was very helpful. He even took me over to the office of my interviewer. When I got there, I had to wait for the interviewer to finish with the interviewee before me. After he was done, we sat and talked for about 30 minutes. The interview was more conversational, than an interrogation. The interviewer was very candid about the whole admissions process, and I was grateful for that. After my interview I went over to the Admissions office for a welcome session, financial aid presentation, and then a tour. The tour was the most memorable. The main hospital and the childrens hospital are right across from the medical school building:) I was very impressed by what I saw. I also loved the fact that the school is in an urban location."

"Where can I begin? This was my first negative interview experience and Im trying not to let it taint my view of the school but thats not too easy. Yes the facilities seemed a bit old and the school isn't exactly in paris but that didn't really turn me off. What did turn me off is that my interviewer had not even looked at my application and did not give me my designated half hour. Not only was he running late but, to add to that, he took an extra 10-15 min on the interview before me and tried to make up the time by cutting my interview short. The guy didn't even know that I had been abroad working for so long when I mentioned it (usually the first question I get is based on this) and, from the very beginning, was looking at the clock every two min. I'm sure everyone can identify how irritating this can be. He didn't even give me a chance! He asked totally superficial questions, derived as he glaced at my application for the very first time right in front of me. He didn't even let me address any of my questions regarding the school. I hadn't come in from very far away but it did cost me and I was sorry that I took time from watching election news to prep for this. Very unexpected considering that most interviewers have seen a lot of interesting stuff in my application and even sessions for an hour have literally flown by. If I had come in from CA or something I swear I would have been ticked off enough to ask for another interview. Fortunate for me, I wasnt too hung up on the school so I wasn't too disappointed. I just hope I dont run into such a situation at other schools in the future. Its very sad that a school (at least judging by this guy) does not work to attract their students as much as applicants work to get admission there." More from this Member | Report Response

"I had the luxury of being the only interviewee that day, so I had a lot of time to talk to the two students who were giving the tour. I'm not a big fan of the location or the facilities, but I was continually impressed with how happy the students are. There were tons of first-years who had just started mulling about, and they were all shouting at me, "Come here! It's great! We love it! Jefferson will try to change your mind, but Temple is so much better!" I also liked seeing a cadaver during the tour. I was pleasantly surprised to hear all the extra-curricular things the students do, but it seems sad that everyone travels back to their little safe havens away from the school each night... might make meeting up socially difficult. The actual interview was with an admin guy, not an M.D., but he definitely answered my questions about the curriculum and student life. He probably talked 90% of the time (I did a lot of nodding and smiling) and the interview was VERY relaxed.. basically just asking me about my family and background.

"Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by Temple. Temple is on a rise in academics and has many top faculty who are involved in the writing of the various national standardized tests you have to take as a med student. In addition, I was glad to hear that there is truly a supportive environment and that class rank is not given; thus, classmates truly work together and learn from each other (since that is the reality of medicine anyways). I liked the fact that the first year is a fair transitional year, allowing many 1st-year students time to be active in extracurriculars. Also, I was really glad to hear about the clinical and community service opportunities offered by various student organizations, allowing for immediate exposure to clinical experience in the actual community. As far as the location goes, I'm not sure what previous applicants saw as I felt that North Philly was like any other urban location: it's not Beverly Hills, but it's definitely not any worse than any other urban location. I see this as a great opportunity to see a variety of clinical cases and to get involved in a community that truly needs our help. However, applicants should be aware that Temple med students can do their final 2 years of clinical work at an affiliate location, including some nice suburb locations, so it's not too big of a sacrifice. As far as the interview, it definitely wasn't too stressful, but I did get a few more thought-provoking questions than some of the other applicants, but nothing that really wasn't expected. Be yourself and you will do fine. Also, if you meet with an RAR representative, take advantage of the input they have. This really helped me." More from this Member | Report Response

"Great experience. Interview was very relaxed. The only interviewer who seems to stress anyone out is Stephen Permut, who often asks questions like why do you want to be a doctor when so many people die from physician mistakes each year and you have to worry about being sued and you often can’t do the tests you want to do. They say that he’ll give you a hard time no matter what your answer is but after the interview he might tell you he agrees with you, so keep your composure. He doesn’t interview on Thursdays but apparently does on Wednesday (not sure about other days). In my interview we only talked about things I touched on in my personal statement. A lot of the criticisms of the school are unfair in my opinion. The neighborhood is nowhere close to being as bad as people say it is, and although there is a good bit of crime, Temple has the third largest police force in PA and you are pretty safe as long as you don’t go too far off the main street. The Children’s Hospital is new and is perhaps the nicest hospital I’ve ever seen, so I don’t know what the people who say all of the building are unsightly are talking about. The building the classrooms are in is old, but they have renovated the first year classroom and it is now very nice. They have also improved the library (new computers and they are getting new journals). The gym is small but you can take a shuttle down to the main campus (they run every 10 minutes) to use theirs if you want to. It seems that everyone lives off campus but not very far away and they are building a new parking garage (which you will see if you go there, unlike the new medical building). The students seem to be comfortable with themselves and not uptight at all, although they said second year was a lot tougher than first (one guy said he dicked around for at least 3 hours every day during first year). Even first year students get to participate in the student run clinic. The financial aid session was very good (when we didn’t have questions, the guy asked his own and told us stuff we should know even though we didn’t ask about it) and there are indeed opportunities to go international. I got my cheesesteaks at Jim’s and Cosmi’s Deli, Cosmi’s being the better of the two (is at 1501 S8th street, passed Pennsylvania Hospital on the way there, close to Pat’s and Geno’s, which I’ve heard are overrated). There is a place on S13th street called Capogiros that has incredible gelato (Italian ice cream), and the tour of Independence Hall is free (just go to the visitor center on Market street between fourth and fifth to get a ticket, which closes at 5). You get to see the liberty bell, the room the declaration of independence and constitution were signed in, and the old rooms for the senate and house (you can actually sit in the house chairs). The art museum is not that far away (you can run up the rocky steps, but the statue has been moved to first union spectrum). So yeah, if you’ve actually read all this, you can tell that I had a great time and I think that Temple is a great place to study medicine. As long as you don’t have the MD/JD guy, the interview should be laid back so just relax. If you have him, be prepared for the tough questions you read on this site and keep your cool. There’s a lot to do in Phily and its easy to get around (I walked everywhere other than to and from the med school), so try to enjoy the city if you have time.

"When they say "open file" they mean open file.

"My interview was almost satiricaly horrible, the kind you have nightmares about. I'm an AIDS activist in my spare time and the interviewer clearly disagreed with both the motiviations (poor people should be get drugs they need even if they can't afford them) and the tactics (civil disobedience and street protest) of my work. I spent the entire interview defending both and trying fruitlessly to explain the diffrence between civil disobedience and violence. We got into an argument about drug patents that would have been bad enough if we simply disagreed about companies rights, but it was made much worse by our disagreements about what the existing law WAS. The vice dean of admissions was great and really comforting when I told her (in response to a question) that my interviewer and I had had some dissagreements.

"I will say that I am came away from Temple with a much better impression of the school than I had going in. They fully addressed the probationary accreditation and the good news is that there should be a decision regarding this in February 04, and hopefully the school will come off probation at that time. Clinical training at Temple is great because of the urban location. Med students get involved in many aspects of patient care that they might not experience at other hospitals where patients may be more inclined to refuse student involvement. Students seem happy, laid back with strong senses of humor, and not overworked, which surprised me given that lectures run from 8-3 everyday. If you are someone who really enjoys challenges, like I am, you will probably find yourself drawn to Temple. I think a lot of opportunities are available (in terms of research, etc.), but you need to be the type of person who is fairly independent and who will seek them out in order to take advantage of them. I didn't get the sense that there was a lot of hand-holding of the students. Neighborhood is really bad but this did not phase me too much. Like I said, I like challenges.

"Temple. I've been in Philly for a number of years now and never before visited Temple, but I had an impression of it from friends and colleagues. Philly is a great city- small, easy to get around, great bars and restaurants, and a good music scene, mostly in Center City, but with alot of great culture in the somewhat segregated neighborhoods of North, South, and West Philadelphia. Temple is about six stops on the orange line north of Center City however, in a pretty bad neighborhood, and perhaps for this reason is considered a commuter school. I was pleasantly surprised to visit the small Temple Med campus though and find a nice island with a couple beautiful hospitals. I got the feeling that I could be very happy staying in Center City or moving up to the Art Museum district and taking the subway in to Temple for a med education. The students seemed really diverse and happy, which is a good reflection on them and the city... The admissions committee seems to have alot of personality too. One guy (who I didn't have, but there was much discussion of by others in the group) gives stress interviews with lots of ethical questions. He's a lawyer though, and apparently if he likes you, will get you accepted as your advocate. My interviewer started off by going on about how all the good things were in research and not clinical medicine, and I had to challenge him to stop him. He smiled at that though and I think he just wanted me to convince him that I had good reasons for choosing an MD... Overall, the school seems to be in a process of transition and expansion, and should be a very strong school in four or five years. Already seems good though... Probation doesn't seem to be much to worry about, although I'd expect to take out the max ($38,500) Stafford loan unless your parents are footing your bill. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The assistant dean of admissions came into the fishbowl and greeted all the applicants. She then proceeded to give a summary of what Temple was about, primarilly the topics of the probation (for financial aid reasons and old facilities, not academic reasons) and the new 13 story building being constructed projected to open 2007 dominating the discussion. A 30 minute information session regarding financial aid followed, and then a one hour tour of the hospital by 2nd year students. We then had lunch together, and following lunch I had my interview. And regarding the MD-JD who is famous on this board--I know him personally and he is a stand-up guy. He feels his style of interviewing is neccessary in order to fully assess and know the applicant. Since your interviewer functions as an advocate on your behalf at committee, if you are interviewed by the MD-JD count yourself as lucky! You are essentially getting a lawyer argueing for why you should be accepted on your behalf. So, just keep a level head and you should be allright." More from this Member | Report Response

"I took a shuttle from the Inn I was staying at on Campus to the Student Faculty Center (SFC). I checked in with the secretary, gave her my photo with my name is AAMC ID on the back, and was told to go next door to the Cancer Center to meet my interviewer. I do that and find my interviewr to be an MD/JD (very rare and dangerous combo) with an axe to grind. He hammered me with some tough questions for 30 minutes and kept a poker face so it was tough to read him. I had heard about stress interviewers as myths but was coming face to face with one know. My strategy was to weather the storm by staying focused, assertive, yet respectful. He then asked me if I had any questions. I knew if I had a chance with this guy I had to kick ass in this area. I asked tons of questions on very specific program and qualities at Temple. I asked him what he thought the top three areas of the school was and about the probation status. By the end of the interview, he'd lightened up, conceded I was "absolutely right" about some of the points I had made and said that he hoped to see me at Temple in Fall of 2004. By staying level headed and focused I had survived, disarmed, and appealed to the toughest interviewer at Temple (or so the Admissions Director told me). Afterwards, I went to a lounge back at SFC and chatted with some of the other applicants. The key here is to just be relaxed and don't take any of what they say too seriously because everyone wants to play mind games with you. The Admissions Director then came in and proceeded to go over what Temple is all about (history, curriculum, probation problems, etc.) We then got a presentation from the financial aid director. This was as boring as hell and by the end I felt like vomiting. Basically he said: "We got a 140K avg debt for our students - be prepared to ask mommy and daddy for $$." Once that was over, the 2nd med students came in and took us on a tour. These guys were super nice. Some of the coolest people I've ever met. They took us on a tour of the hospital and were very receptive to our questions. Visiting the library, it looked cramped and some people were passed our at desks from the exhaustion of finals week - something for us all to look forward too. Their anatomy lab looked like a hybrid to old dissection and new computer stations. Temple seems to be in transition from its old school roots to a more 21st century med school and they deserve props for that. Once that was done we all had lunch and I left. A week later, I got a notification via e-mail that an acceptance letter was being sent to me. I'm into med school! Yay! " More from this Member | Report Response

The interview was in a difference building than the office where we signed in. The faculty member I interview with was a very delightful man. Since our time was somewhat rushed by time constraints, I felt I wasn't able to share as much of the things I would have liked to about my various experiences and reasons for becoming a doctor. There was virtually no stress. Although I wasn't asked the question 100,000 doctors mistakes/year (see previous postings), another girl interviewing at 10:30 was asked this question. I really enjoyed interacting with the medical school students. Living in the city for the last few years, the neighborhood wasn't a negative thing to me.

I just sat there, nodded my head, and smiled. It looks like she wanted to use the interview to verify a few facts." More from this Member | Report Response

"I think the interviewer talked more than I did. He was really friendly and laid-back, and it felt more like he was trying to sell the school than anything else. " More from this Member | Report Response

"It was extremely low key. We did the normal why Temple, why Philly, why doctor bit but then it was pretty open. We talked about Baseball, Canada and my family. No theoretical situations or anything made it very low stress." More from this Member | Report Response

"The day was very laid back, and a lot of emphasis was given on the improvement of their facilities...i.e, reasons for their probation, etc. Altogether, just be relaxed, because there is nothing to stress about" More from this Member | Report Response

"great experience, friendly interviewer, awesome clinical facilities" More from this Member | Report Response

"I apparently was one of the lucky people to get the toughest interviewer. All interviews were really conversational except mine, who asked tougher ethical questions and had a rebuttal for every answer I gave. It still was a good experience though." More from this Member | Report Response

"Overall, after visiting the school, I was impressed by the facilities and the cohesiveness of the students. The only thing I didn't like was the area surrounding the school. My interviewer was a bit on the serious side so I couldn't tell what he was thinking, which is the reason why I was a bit stressed. Other than that, I feel the school would provide an excellent education and they are making every effort to lift the probation that they had been put on." More from this Member | Report Response

"Some interviewees (especially the ones from CA) were mad that we were basically interviewing for a waitlist spot. This is my second year applying so I expected it with a late interview. I was in fact waitlisted but I still got in right around the May 15 deadline. So if you are waitlisted and interested in Temple don't give up hope yet. Also I get the impression that the probation thing is more logistics. Basically the LCME didn't like what they saw on a site visit as far as facilities and the school is now Building a brand new facility. I doubt it had anything to do with quality of teaching or student complaints. " More from this Member | Report Response

"Philadelphia is a great place. Temple seems like a pretty pleasent school. My interview didn't go as well as I had hoped, but that may have been as much a function of me as my interviewer." More from this Member | Report Response

"Actually, I am a current student at Temple. I wanted to post a message for potential students and those applying. It is an aweful school. The faculty goes by the idea of quantity over quality, and the material taught is in many ways irrelevant. If Temple is the only place you get into, I would recommend either waiting a year, and then reapplying, osteopathic medicine, or a foreign school. I am doing fine in school, this is not a reactionary note. I have also spoken to students from other schools who are shocked when we tell them about the stuff we are required to learn in our classes. If you like wasting your time studying stupid stuff, then this is the school for you. Otherwise, I highly urge you to reconsider. And in case they don't mention it during the interview, the school is on probation, and might lose it license to teach medicine. " More from this Member | Report Response

"We started wiht a financial aid presentation that was okay. The tour guide was excellent. We asked Felix anything and everything and it was clear that he cared about his school. He seemed to get along with everyone so it was clear the camraderie of which he spoke was genuine. I had my interview with the head of cardiology who interviewed me 1/2 an hour late and only for 10 minutes. He didn't discuss my file at all and gave me a 10 minute interview. We didn't discuss any of my post secondary experiences, and it was very impersonal. If the guy who went at 3 pm after me reads this, please email me at [email protected]'d love to hear what Dr. E had to say to you and how the Dean Koontz novel is going." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview day was great, and very worthwhile... there was a good financial aid presentation and our tour guide (Felix) was AWESOME... we talked that poor kid's ear off for about two hours, asking every question that came into our minds. He was really helpful and I could tell he was really into the school. By interview time (afternoon, after the tour) I was pretty relaxed, having yapped Felix's ear off. The interview was very easygoing.... I was asked about my motivation to enter medicine, my extracurriculars, and what i was looking for in a med school... my answers to those took up about 20 mins! The interviewer was also great about answering questions... come prepared to ask some! Overall, though, the whole day is really low stress... if you are comfortable with your own application (review it!) you'll do fine. No reason for nerves, everyone is super chill. Overall, Temple is a great place and well worth the trip." More from this Member | Report Response

"The interview at Temple was my first interview. To be the first interview, it went very well. I thought it was incredible. I love the school and thats definitely where I want to go. The director of admissions that gave the tour and was with us the whole day, was incredible. He mad the school look like the best and sold the school like he should have. I learned things about the school from him that I would never read about elsewhere. He will defintely make anyone want to chose Temple over any other school. It was an experience I would never forget. The students where awesome. They are all a team and just want to see each other succeed. " More from this Member | Report Response

"students were fairly happy at Temple... although it did seem like it was not a "first choice school" for the most part. The school does not have a beautiful campus and the med school/student facilities are not great. overall it was an ok visit." More from this Member | Report Response

"There was nothing bad about Temple, but there was really nothing outstanding about it either. It seems like a good place, but I didn't get that "Wow, I want to go here" feeling." More from this Member | Report Response

"My intervier was the head of the cardiac transplant dept so I guess that gave him a right to be 35 mins late and give me a 5 minute interview. Asked questions directly from my file. Don't worry if you get a short interview, I still got in. Most students seem to be there cuz its the only place they got in. My question to the students of why did you choose temple was answered by "cuz it chose me."" More from this Member | Report Response

"Any stress during the interview is caused by yourself. The interview is completely conversational and the staff makes every effort to ensure your are comfortable" More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview experience was positive, definitely left Temple with a better impression of the campus and students than I had anticipated. The neighborhood is pretty rough but the security to enter into buildings is extremely tight." More from this Member | Report Response

"Totally non-stressful. I was only interviewed for about 20 minutes and it felt like even less. It felt like a casual conversation in which he was just trying to get to know me. The fact that 10 minutes into the interview he assured me that I was most likely going to be accepted was also a welcome relief. He basically just wanted to get a feel for what my views and my personality." More from this Member | Report Response

"The lady that interviewed me was one of the sweetest little ladies I've ever met. She made hot chocolate for me. I can not stress enough that the interview I was given was LOW-stress. She had done her homework on me, and really used the interview to build the case that she was going to make for me to the admissions committee (which meet every Friday). My interview was in the admissions office and I was told that decisions are made within 6 weeks. " More from this Member | Report Response

"I had a very sweet woman from the Pharmacology department as my interviewer. She could not have been any nicer. Just relax and know that the interview here is simply to get a chance for them to see how you are as a person, and nothing more. Its a good idea to have some intelligent questions for the students and your interviewer." More from this Member | Report Response

"Interview experience was typical experience: financial aid presentation, tour, lunch, interview. Interview was short and sweet, and very direct. It probably amounted to what some people would deem a stress interview, but my interviewer didn't bother me. Oh, and if North Philly bothers you, you scare too easily. West Philly is worse.

"I knew I was applying here a while ago since I'm interested in philly for med school. the school is great, and there is no reason to feel insecure on the campus, just would be a slight pain commuting.

"Extremely low key! One poor guy in my group had a stress interview, which is weird since they specifically say that they do not conduct stress interviews...watch out if you get sent over to the cancer research center! My interview was very casual and my interviewer was very friendly. We talked about my time abroad and my work in the emergency department of a Philly hospital (she was an ER doc). Other than that, I asked a lot of questions and that kept the conversation going. I wasn't asked too many questions-it was more a conversation." More from this Member | Report Response

"i felt like an idiot for missing the tour, but apologized profusely for it. my interviewer did not mind at all, and assured me that it would not affect her appraisal of me. she was probably one of the nicest people i have ever been interviewed by...she went on and on about how much she loved my scores and extracurriculars, and how lucky the school would be to have me. when in response to a question i described a weakness of mine, she basically turned it into a strength."

"I don't know whether to call this a "stress" interview or not. Basically in 15 minutes I was asked about a million questions...not being able to finish an answer before getting cut off by another question. It was really funny because right before the interview the director said that this was strictly NOT a stress interview and there would be no "where do you see medicine in the next 10 years?" kind of questions (one of the first questions I was asked) but strictly conversational talking about yourself. The interviewer just didn't really seem to care about my answers just my ability to answer them fast to get onto the next question. I can't say the guy was absolutely horrible, I was just very suprised at the slew of questions continuously asked. He basically said that the admissions committee meets on friday's and give applicants either a thumb's up or down...he told me i was very competitive but somehow after the interview I didn't even know how to take that:) I don't mean to scare anyone about the interview...it could've been worse...it just was a shocker to me since i was told it would be different.
