What impressed you positively?

"Contrary to other opinions, the location is a perfect blend of "city" and "college" atmosphere. The admissions staff was very nice and answered all questions. The students were positive and gave you honest answers to your questions. Philly is a great area to learn and live." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"The length of the introduction section. We spent 30-40 minutes in what feels like a lecture of Philadelphia's history and tourism, which is nice, but had nothing to do with the school. Besides, current students say you will have enough time to get to know Philly yourself if you plan accordingly." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Some people will say Temple will "sell" you the school and to a certain degree that is true. However, you will soon see that this is a unique experience that not everyone has and they treat every student equally. The clinic is huge with tons of patients and a variety of diverse cases to learn from. The students in class seemed very content and upper-class students were very welcoming. The school just felt right to me." Report Response
