What are your general comments?

"I learned a lot about temple from the interview. For one, their main selling point is that you are a competent dentist when you graduate because of the huge number of patients you see and how you do soo many procedures. That may sound good, but in reality I don't think it is. Listen, the purpose of dental school is to LEARN, not to practice stuff. Any dentist graduating from anywhere will tell you that you gain your dental skills/speed/ proficiency after you graduate from dental school in your first few years out. The didactic curriculum at Temple seemed a little weak to me, and i think it's probably because they have their students working away doing wax-ups or they're in the clinic. I do NOT want to pay outrageous tuition to practice; teach me something so that i have a firm foundation to learn upon for my career in dentistry. I fear that temple dental grads have no idea about drugs and medical complications and all that stuff; things that will be important especially with our aging population. Anyhow, my interview went well because it was an absolute joke. They gather NO information about anybody from the interview. Later that night i partied it up with some friends over at Penn and I got totally trashed. Hooked up with this one girl at penn dental and it was awesome. I have my interview for penn coming up pretty soon and i know that it's a quality school, unlike temple. Oh yeah, and a lot of people talk about temple's lousy location. I must say that it did appear pretty crappy, but not as bad as i expected. However, it might've been a worse neighborhood that my eyes could discern, because i have NEVER EVER had so much trouble getting an f'n cab before in my life. Even after calling like two companies from inside the D-school. I waited like 50 minutes at 3:30 in the afternoon. When i questioned the driver, he said that "you just don't stop for people trying to hail you down around here. it's dangerous you know." " Report Response
