What impressed you negatively?

"the location is very rural, you have to move to Temple the same time you take your boards, the anatomy lab only has room for 4 students, but 6 are assigned to a tank - so on the day you're not dissecting your group members have to teach you the material, " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The school makes a great effort to make interviewees feel welcome. Lunch is really nice and there are so many students to ask questions, so you do get a really good feel for the school. Overall though, it is a really long day, especially if you have to drive home that night, so I recommend getting plenty of rest the day before and taking snacks for the way home. " Report Response
