What are your suggestions for the admissions office?

"Actually put some effort into selling the school to the applicants. We spent a lot of money to apply and interview, but we have other options that actually show us they care." More from this Member | Report Response

"How about making a Temple student feel welcome. There was very little effort put forth into "selling" the school to me. I'm a senior Temple student and I was NOT IMPRESSED. Choose the faculty who interviews more wisely. She was incredibly unprofessional. (Phone went off during interviews, cut off student's reply to speak with someone else. Rude.) I will be going elsewhere. And it's too bad, because Temple was my 1st choice before this experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"Properly communicate the time for the tour." More from this Member | Report Response

"I would suggest making a formal tour be a part of every interviewee's interview day. It is definitely of interest to us to see the facilities (including the library) as well as talk to current students if possible, through a Q&A session. Also, info about financial aid, scholarships and housing should be made more available on the interview day, ie. in an info packet." More from this Member | Report Response

About the LizzyM Score

LizzyM, SDN Moderator and medical school admissions committee member, is the inventor of the LizzyM Score. The score allows you to see if you are a competitive applicant at a given school. If your LizzyM Score is far below or above the average, you may not be a good fit. If your score is far below, your application may be screened out due to numerical cutoffs. If it is far above, the school may assume they are your “safety” school and that you won’t attend if they offer an acceptance. This score should be used only as a guide to help you select schools and is not a guarantee of acceptance at any school. If you use this as your sole criteria to select medical schools to apply to, you don’t deserve to get in anyway.
