"The location was sub-par, although it wasn't as bad as most people made it out to be. My biggest problem with Temple was its facilities. The lecture halls and the labs seemed really old and cramped.

What are your general comments?

"There's no real way to prepare for this interview since the questions are different for each interview. The interviewer does not take notes so the school's method of evaluation is very unorthodox, if you compare it to the other schools. This was my first group interview so I was dreading it but the interview was conversational and stress-free." Report Response
