What impressed you positively?

"Main clinic, especially wound care clinic seemed cool. Interviewer was a great guy and I enjoyed our convo. One of the lecture halls was modern and updated. Amb. surgery center in the building. Seemed to have a number of surgery-oriented courses." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"They dean calls Temple the "Harvard of Podiatry Schools" which I think is bogus considering they do not have the best entering stats and still accept DAT and GRE. Facilities are quite old and need of renovation. We were told of all these new improvements/upgrades to various areas (esp anatomy lab) but nothing is set in stone. David Martin did not seem too professional and it was annoying how he went around in a circle asking us interviewers personal questions. No other school did this and it did not seem necessary, especially considering he was mixing up people's activities/hobbies/experiences. Also, it did not seem he knew too much about the field of podiatric medicine. They boast about the patient simulation center but thus far, podiatry students do not use it. As someone said it before on these forums, the day felt like I was being sold a used car (minus the interview with the DPM faculty)." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"They say they have the biggest podiatric medical school library but in fact is smaller than my high schools regular library." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interview with the DPM itself was very good and I enjoyed it. I felt the day was very long and there was a lot of sitting around waiting for the other "interviewees" to finish. I understand Temple was "the place to be" for podiatry back in the day but I feel that has changed now. It does not seem up to par with schools like DMU, AZPOD, and Scholl. I honestly was expecting a lot from Temple but in the end I was disappointed." Report Response
