What impressed you positively?

"Temple isn't the most research driven, highly-funded school, but people at Temple seem genuinely nice. They care for their students and I got the sense that they really want you to enjoy Temple too. The anatomy lab looked pretty nice and the financial advisor was thorough. New children's hospital." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"It seems as though the students have a relatively easy first year. USLME scores hit the national average but nothing beyond. The interview day seemed pretty disorganized. I had my interview before the day even started, so I had to rush to meet the other students. I learned later that the Temple reps that were supposed to introduce the school never even came by. " Report Response

"The interview day is incredibly short, ends around 1-2 although it starts around 10:30AM. Lunch comes at the end so eat breakfast." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interview was really quick and relaxed. I was paired up with a Dean who ended up being very personable. She asked generic questions, mostly about myself and what my goals were. She told me that I should focus on learning more about Temple that day and the aspects that I like about it. Just really honest and straightforward. We also talked about my AMCAS essay."
