I just got my interview letter from Temple yesterday as well. I applied a longggggg time ago (been accepted to a few schools already) and wasn't even going to go. I figured I'd just take a ride an check it out. Anyone heard about the school/interview at all?
Can those who got accepted into Temple or had interview already help me for my upcoming itnerview? I heard temple interview is somewhat tricky than any other place.
I thought I posted my question already but for some reason i am not able to detect it. So I will ask again,
I applied to Temple and haven't heard from them in a very long time. The last time they told me was that they need my PCAT result from January. Obviously, it didn't measure up to what they are looking for or something. What are your statuses guys? that might help me not to set my hopes too high.
I had my interview already. The process is unlike any other I have been to. There is no way to gauge what will be asked, as the interview is in a group and in the format of an informal discussion. Therefore, you are at the mercy of the interviewer (i.e. the assistant dean). I didn't mind the process, I actually felt more comfortable justifying my qualifications in a group. There seemed to be more opportunity in stating how your qualifications are better than the other interviewees (i.e. easier to prove you're worthy of admissions).
The interview is a group interview and questions were based off of your qualifications.
For example: You are asked to introduce yourself and then elaborate upon your qualifications. The interviewer (i.e. the dean) will then ask you questions about your credentials. You are expected to hold your own in a fast paced discussion type atmosphere, as there are 3 other interviewers at the table.
would you mind going through in more detail what happened during your interview? was it only a free for all of everyone trying to explain why they were better than the next person?
So have you guys heard back from them since your interview? Also do you know how many people have been accepted? Whats the class size?
