What impressed you positively?

"My interviewer told me that he was impressed with my file and I have a good chance of getting in. Security on the campus is tight so saftey is not a real issue." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Overall, there was just a bad aura at Temple, for me. The facilities are pretty poor. I wouldn't get to use the new medical school bldg they are planning to construct. You can't live near campus. No safe restaurants or anything else worth while near campus. Lectures are 8 to 3 everyday. The tour, and the whole experience, didn't leave me thinking about the positives of Temple but rather the negatives. " Report Response
