What impressed you positively?

Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"as everyone says - temple med school's immediate neighborhood is kind of skitchy - but surburban girl that i am -- i'd say it has character. i paparazzied all the rundown buildings and graffiti with my camera. i'm SUCH a tourist. and i was also by three different people for money down the block from the school. even got to hear one woman's entire life story when she appealed to me to find god and to give her money. i ended up buying her food in rite aid. it was an experience :)" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"how cool philly is -- i should have allocated more time to the visit. and that the med school is past the undergrad. i drove down broad street for a good 15 minutes in circles (very difficult when everything is a one-way) trying to find the admissions building." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"i was pleasantly surprised by the school. the classrooms are newly renovated and wireless. they're switching to organ-based next year which is pretty nice. my interviewer was absolutely fantastic. and the tour guides were super. it's nice that the students have a life outside of medical school. there seems to be a lot going on. interviewing for waitlist sort of stinks, but at orientation they spent a good amount of time explaining the whole process and if you like you, you're first to get off the waitlist when may 15th comes around - before even oct. waitlistees" Report Response
