What are your general comments?

"Kind of a long day (began at 7am, ended at about 5 pm). Overall, it gave me a very good view of the school and their motivations. Had a panel of 2nd yrs that spoke to our group in the morning and a handful of 3rd and 4th yrs at Temple who took us around Scott and White. Didn't see too many other students which kept me from asking questions of students who may have a different view of the school." Report Response
