What impressed you positively?

"The student led tour was great. They said that Temple's learning environment is very non-competitive and very supportive. The teachers are mostly PhD's who love to teach, and they are very accessible and willing to help. The curriculum is also appealing because they are switching it over to the newer organ-based system. The facilities are a bit old, and some are not very appealing. However, the number of hospital and medical center affiliations is remarkable, giving students a plethora of opportunities." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The campus is a kind of a bad area, and not really a place you would want to hang out. Students just go in, go to class, study, and leave." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the area is not as bad as it seems. Like any inner-city setting, it has it's bad parts. But the campus itself is NOT scary. And, they are very security-conscious. Everything is well lit at night, and there is security everywhere." Report Response

What are your general comments?
