What impressed you positively?

"campus security was good, and the area is well lit. temple has a free shuttle that runs from the undergrad campus to the health science campus, and also downtown. plus temple has public bus and subway (septa) stops on the undergrad campus, and the train station to the airport is on the undergrad campus too." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"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." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"the time your interview is scheduled for is the time of the actual interview, so you have to get to the room they tell you to report to 10-15 minutes early and check in with the secretary, because you might have to go down the street for your interview. i probably should have realized this myself, it seems obvious to get there early." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"overall it was a low stress day, but i wasn't excited about going to temple at all when i was leaving. the students didn't seem to have much of a support system, or at least they didn't give that impression at all." Report Response
