What impressed you positively?

"the clinical facilities, the diversity and friendliness of the students. everyone seemed intelligent without being pretentious. the day was very organized. the emphasis on doing well on the boards--the first 2 years are very focused on science. 4 students/cadaver. the urban feel to the school--you are surrounded by the populations you'll be working with."

What are your general comments?

"my interviewer showed very little emotion so it was difficult to read him. it required a lot to make him feel more comfortable and open up to me. i'd think it should be the other way around but i dealt with it. we had a nice conversation afterall. he was very honest about the positive and negative aspects of temple. i appreciated that.
