What impressed you positively?

"was fed very well and personally escorted to my interviews. Simulation Center was impressive as heck. Felt like I could flourish in this program with such a supportive faculty. I liked that there was room for and encouragement to do research, which was opposite of what I heard previously. Most impressive however was Filo himself. I encourage interviewees to find some time to converse with him about anything." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Temple isn't ideal for those with very active social lives. Not enough interaction with 1st or 2nd year students during the College Station session. Not sure how well students are prepared for boards." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Info on all the interviewees is given out to everyone - pretty interesting." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Day was organized well, and you are exhausted by the end. They feed you very well. Also, I can't stress enough how great a guy Filo seemed. As for interviews, my 1st was a PhD and it went like a normal conversation. Talked about research and the personalities required for med school. Very nice guy - even gave me reprints of his publications. Made me feel I could be valuable to the school, as did my 2nd interviewer. He was an MD in academic medicine who did most of the talking during the interview, explaining his life as a clinician-educator. Overall I emerged with a very positive feeling about the program, which seems very underrated." Report Response
