"Read SDN, Temple brochure, AMCAS application, Temple Secondary (this is not an interview where you have to worry about learning how to reform tort laws and the standard of care given by PCP's under HMO jusisdiction, no questions like this were asked to any of the interviewees)" Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Admissions staff were all very friendly and up front about the whole probation issue, and they gave us tips about the people who were were interviewing with, ie. whether or not to expect ethical questions, length of interviews, etc" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Lecture halls, size of the library, the fact that my interviewer didn't really seem to be too enthusiastic about interviewing people that day. I was asked all the questions below in about 15 minutes, so I felt like I wasn't really being listened to, but oh well I guess" Report Response

"Nothing really, everything was pretty much covered" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall the interview was a positive experience, as a first interview it definitely gave me some confidence and allowed me to gain some practice for further interviews. The students all seem enthusiastic about the school and they seem very happy there, but the facilites are sub par, hence the probation issue. But it seems like a great place to spend 4 years, if you are a city person, then it is definitely for you." Report Response
