What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I did not ask but they did not offer me coffee in the morning so I was pretty beat by lunch." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I went into my interview with Temple being my first choice. I absolutely love the city, students, research, and the clinic. However, the facilities are outdated (personal preference in these matters), and felt there was a lack of connection between the admission faculty and the interviewers. It was very matter of fact and presented without much enthusiasm- something that I did not encounter at previous interviews. I highly encourage student lead tours and a much bigger emphasis on the great things that make Temple Podiatry (not philly, not Temple MD school, etc.) a top program. I left feeling like it was not the right school for me." Report Response

What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"David was kind, knowledgeable, and welcoming. He gave a thorough rundown of the city - a little too much time in my opinion. Philly is a great city, that is easy to sell. But I felt as though more was said about the city than was the school. I highly recommend having student lead tours instead of admission faculty lead tours to give a more personal perspective on things. In fact, the tour guide missed a few talking points that were brought up with David later during the day. I wish we toured the clinic more - it is one of the schools biggest selling points."
