Okay am I the only one the interview feedback page isn't working for?? I rely on this to help me prepare, lol! I have a Temple interview tomorrow and was going to look up questions, info on the format, etc.

Sooo since the interview feedback page is presently not working -- can anybody tell me what the group interview is like? So far all the ones I've been to have been one-on-one. Also, was it pretty laid back or higher stress? Any other useful tidbits are welcome as well. I know there's a few of us here on SDN that will be at Temple tomorrow.

totally laid back and incredibly low stress. i think each person in my group (4 of us) was only asked three questions...when did you get the dental "bug"? , who is someone you look up to? and what types of leadership experiences have you had?

The other group had 5 people in it, and they said they were asked 5 questions. Don't worry too much about it, its easy!

Good luck!

Like everybody has said; very laid back. You spend most of the morning with Brian. He will do a presentation, and after that he will show you around. As for the group interview itself, well, it is different, but it is not too bad. Just be ready to answer the questions why dentistry?, who inspires you?, and your future plans. I think there were some other 3 questions, but I don't recall what they were. Don't worry, you shouldn't worry too much about the group interview, just do your best. Well, good luck.

Hey guys, literally just got back this morning from Temple. I will reiterate the feelings of the other interviewees, it has been the most relaxed interview so far. Just a few words of wisdom abt getting there which i wish i had known before.

1. Staying in the are can be expensive: cheapest place I found is travelodge near city center (convention center) for $75

2. there is a shuttle that will take you anywhere in the city for $10, this includes from the airposrt to a students home if you choose that route. (Liberty Shuttle)

3. There is an easy $7 train ride from the airport to the convention center, and an easy $2 subway ride from the convention center north to temple med. highly recommended!! I was told i could take a cab to temple med from downtown and it cost me $30!!

- the rest of the day is pretty smooth sailing guys, good luck!
