What are your general comments?

"Well, I was VERY unnerved because I took the train without my morning coffee, slept past Philly, and wound up in Trenton, NJ. GAAAAAH! . So I missed the info sessions, but I caught the tour and thank god I was not late for the interview. My interviewer knew this (dammit!) so I went in there very nervous, but relaxed halfway through. He was pretty easygoing. I lived in Philly before, and I really really hate that city. It's got all the soul-sucking ghetto and crap of a city with few of the advantages. But I was pleasantly surprised by Temple, and would definitely go if accepted. Despite nasty nasty philly I think there's great people at the school. BTW if you think Philly sucks too, don't tell someone who's from there >:O" Report Response
