    Hmmm, Dremple or Texel....
    Depends on what you value. The curriculum, cost, the feel of the school? Which one gave you a better feeling? Which one had an environment that you liked better? Personally, I like Temple, just because they haven't fired John Chaney. Admit it, a lot of schools would have let him go because of his outspoken views. I like a school that will stand up for one of their own.

    I interviewed at both schools, got into Temple, and Waitlisted at Drexel (but I'm not going to either)-

    I liked them both, Temple seems a little better, Drexel is probably a low-tier school (if there is such a thing).

    If I had to pick, I'd pick Temple. But that's just my opinion.

    i'd pick drexel... both have their problems, but when i interviewed at temple i thought i was going to get shot just walking to the admissions office, and then again walking to my interview. i was unimpressed with the student tour guides, my interviewer, and the maintanence of the hospital. the students said they all used drexel's or jefferson's library bc their own wasn't good. i had a positive interview experience at drexel, which seemed more on top of things and had happier students and a nicer hospital and med school. also, a number of drexel students live near the med school, while i was told most temple students don't dare live within walking distance of the school. just my experiences during my 6 hours at each. didn't end up at either of them.
