What impressed you negatively?

"1) Tour was not included in appointment. Had to come beforehand to partake. 2) Admissions staff, though nice, seem disorganized and without proper resources. ( A hallmark of Temple ) 3) School made no effort to "woo" students. Did not feel like a visit. Ie) Where other schools would let you hear from the Dean, financial aid office, former/current students, or provide food, school memorabilia or even refreshments, Temple did none of this. Was "hello", interview, (now get out) "thanks for coming". 4) "Interviewer" was a very nice, but disorganized and unprofessional professor. She was very dressed-down (clogs and parachute pants) and made very little effort. She allowed for free-for-all type discussion where people were interrupted mid-sentence or ignored. Her cell phone went off 2x during the interview, the second time she pulled it out and began to play with it while another student was trying to answer her question. You could tell she heard none of that reply. 5) I'm use to the setting of main campus (it takes some getting use to). Poor area, high crime. You are relatively safe on-campus. Health Science Campus is another story. I felt very unsafe there (and I've been commuting to Temple for 4yrs+ so I thought nothing would phase me). If you choose to go here, be safe-be careful and don't get too comfortable." Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"How about making a Temple student feel welcome. There was very little effort put forth into "selling" the school to me. I'm a senior Temple student and I was NOT IMPRESSED. Choose the faculty who interviews more wisely. She was incredibly unprofessional. (Phone went off during interviews, cut off student's reply to speak with someone else. Rude.) I will be going elsewhere. And it's too bad, because Temple was my 1st choice before this experience." Report Response
