How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN, re-read amcas application and secondary application, school website, asked lots of questions during the tour. I highly recommend doing your interview after the tour and meeting with the med students, it's the best way to know about the school and to be prepared for the interview." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The med students were incredibly enthusiastic about Temple. They all seemed to most of the kids in their class and they emphasized how friendly and non-competitive their class is. Also, the students really emphasized how easy it is to get clinical experience at Temple. Even as a first year student, you can shadow any doctor at the hospital, and the patient body is very diverse." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"My interviewer told me that the class is probably getting close to being filled and candidates are probably going to start getting wait-listed as opposed to getting acceptance letters." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the class was close to being filled up. I really liked the school a lot, but if I get wait-listed/not accepted because the class is filled, I'll be really bummed about the expense of going all the way to Philly to interview." Report Response

"I thought the interview was very laid back and easy going. It seems like the most important thing they want to see is that you're a normal person. Don't stress about this one!" Report Response
