What are your general comments?

"Temple is really great. They do an awesome job of answering questions and making you feel relaxed throughout the day. The actual interview portion itself was very relaxed too. Obviously its nerve-wracking going into it, but as soon as you start to have conversation with your interviewer your heart stops racing and you feel pretty comfortable. Also, the current students who toured us gave their genuine opinions on everything you would ask. They were super helpful and willing to talk about anything." Report Response
