What impressed you positively?

"Everyone, from the administration to the students to my interviewer, were the sweetest, most energetic and helpful people! You really got a sense of community there - not a bunch of gunners. They were genuinely interested in me and what I had to say and really brought out the best in the school!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Sure the area wasn't the greatest but it definitely doesn't deserve the "slum" tag everyone is writing on here. If you've lived in a big city (NY, LA, Chicago, etc.) then you will see that it just looks like any old part of downtown. I mean, yeah, I wouldn't walk around here by myself at midnight down a dark alley but that's common sense people, not because of where it is. Other than that, the only other thing I didn't like was that I had one guy in my group who was a total gunner - I just hate being around people like that!" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I would have known more about their new integrated curriculum so I could have asked more questions. It seems really cool and clinically based and now there is something about it on the website so I am definitely going to check that out!" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Overall, my interview was a lot of fun, totally low stress and I met a lot of others that I would love to be at a med school with one day. Temple is definitely one of my top choices now for its excellent rep. in clinical care - something US News doesn't rank!" Report Response
