I interviewed @ Temple yesterday. A friend who interviewed mentioned during the tour that there were a lot of Asian people. I just thought, maybe it just seems that way because there are usually a lot of whites in the regional colleges & universities. I didn't have a lot of diversity in my 12 years of Catholic school or in my undergrad. But the observation piqued my curiosity about the gender, ethnic, socioeconomic breakdowns in Temple's admitted Pharm.D. student body. Does anyone have insight on this - do you find their student body to truly be diverse, to be weighted towards or against any one group, and so forth?

I hope you get better luck at having your question asked then I did about diversity. :luck:

I'm interviewing at Temple next month! Let me know about it! About diversity; I can't speak for the student body at Temple, but it is in Philiadelphia, and I know as a major eastern seaboard city, it is diverse. Being associated with the hospital, i'm sure you'll be able to interact with many different cultures if you go there.
