    Hey guys!

    I know the interview's a day before Dec 1st so do you think they'll go easy on us? When do they actually decide who to accept? 11/30? For those who already went, did it last until 3pm?

    I interviewed at Temple a couple weeks ago, and they told us that they put about 200 acceptance letters in the mail on Nov. 28th. So I'm sorry to tell you but I don't think you'll find out within the first wave. From what I remember, they said they offer acceptance to about 100 after that initial wave. I don't think they'll treat you any different than any of the other dates. Good luck!

    Yes it did last until 3pm. Meet on the third? floor office. Go to a conference room, introductions, presentation, questions (ask ALOT), tour, lunch, interviews. Good luck, it's a nice school.

    Wear a bullett-proof vest when outside, and bring wire cutters to get through the razor wire that surrounds the school. They send out 200 acceptances because about 100 are gunned down before they make it through the front door.

    search my previous posts, and tell me if i'm a troll then, don't just go out calling people trolls....

    ....i have you etched in my memory from a previous encounter...

    ...people like you are sooooooo annoying.


    I applied to Temple, and i want information on how many people get cut from the interview stage. it's a simple question...i don't know what is so troll about it.

    if anybody can give me an answer, then i'll be thankfull. Audio, you are now on my delete list, anything you post will not be visible to me...

    Buddyyy, I think you need to relax. Audio is just answering your question. Thats it. He is not calling your comment as troll, but the other guy's comments.

    I guess it's pretty easy to sit on a 20 acre property and complain about Temple's location. Yeah, it's on a main street in the ghetto, located among a lot of other businesses, churches, and parts of the school. There's nobody out on the corner selling drugs or guns. Maybe that **** goes down a few blocks away, but the dental school itself is safe.

    If you're scared for your safety among poor people, don't bother going to Temple. Same goes for if you can't understand the situation in the ghetto. People think everyone in the ghetto is on welfare and has the whole day free to do whatever illegal and ungodly things it is they do. Well that's not how it is. People in North Philadelphia are hard-working and it's not their fault that the public schools aren't up to par and it's hard to find work and zenophobic people like Ronald keep leaving the area and making it poorer and poorer.

    Some people view it as an opportunity, not a threat to their lives. They say to themselves, "Hey. Temple's in a kind of ****ty neighborhood. Huh. I wonder who's providing their dental care...probably NO ONE. Oh wait, doesn't Temple have a really really high number of patient visits every year? I guess part of the reason we're here is to help those people that can barely afford to take a bus to a practice in the burbs." When you start thinking like that you realize that the ghetto is something you can avoid only if you pretend it doesn't exist. Anyone that understands the sociopolitical situation there understands that these people need qualified care, not your derision just because they don't dress as nice as you and walk around looking pissed off because they are.

    But hey, if you think it's funny to trash a whole neighborhood just because you can't grasp what's going on and you think the Ronald Reagan vision of the ghetto is correct, go ahead. Anyone that's been here knows that all these people are in a tough situation and THERE'S A LOT OF JERK OFFS LIKE YOU THAT DON'T EVEN THINK OF HELPING.

    From what I remember at the interview, they accept about 200 around dec. 1st, then about 100 more in upcoming months. Hope this helps, good luck!
