What are your general comments?

"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." Report Response
