me too! I applied waaaay back at the beginning of September because they told me they were on rolling admission and would be reviewing applications soon...and I haven't heard a thing. I won't be going to this schoolTemple probably forgot they have to interview+admit students for fall 09. Nothing better explains their tacit attitude toward us! I wish i could really get my fee back.
If you do end up doing both, go to www.septa.org and click Plan My Trip and put in the adresses of where you're going, and it'll give you nice directions by public transportation so you don't have to pay cab fare.I got 2 invitations today, one from Temple and one from Jefferson. It would be nice if I could do both on one trip but that's probably wishful thinking.
my sister goes to the dental school at temple. i stayed with her when i interviewed at TJU. she took me to drive past the med campus (we refused to leave the car). its sooo hood. also on her first day, one of her friends got hit by a car and went flying the second he set foot off campusI don't know about their clinical connections but i declined mainly because i already accepted an offer from another school. Well, that and temple is not in the nicest of areas. I know someone who attends their dental school and to tell you the truth, some of the experiences they've had were quite a turn off.
So do you think I'll make it walking from the Allegheny Station to the med campus in a suit? It doesn't look that far from the map.my sister goes to the dental school at temple. i stayed with her when i interviewed at TJU. she took me to drive past the med campus (we refused to leave the car). its sooo hood. also on her first day, one of her friends got hit by a car and went flying the second he set foot off campus
Says it's a 3-minute walk on trip planner, and those estimates are usually for slow walkers.So do you think I'll make it walking from the Allegheny Station to the med campus in a suit? It doesn't look that far from the map.
I initially thought they had changed it to 1-on-1 interview format as well. That is not the case, it is still group interview. A group of probably 4-6 (4 in my case) applicants will be interviewed by 1 Pharmacy faculty member. There is an optional tour as well.hey ericn2k3,
how was the temple pharm interview? i have mine on thursday.. i heard it's a group interview, how does that work?
I am a first year student at the Temple Pharmacy School and the program is very well organized. I think its safe. I live very close to the school and I did not have any problems. I haven't heard of any problems form others. The classes are not that hard, it actually is hard to fail. I know a few students did fail in our class last semester, but they had their reasons for failing. Everybody in the school is down to earth, the professors are very easy to talk to and look at the students as their colligues not someone beneath them. Also the subway does come right to the Temple Medical Campus (station is 2 blocks from the pharmacy school). Many students use the subway and wearning a suit or dressing up is not a problem if you take the subway. A lot of people live in center city and take the subway every morning. Anyways thats my perception of Temple. The pharmacy school does not really have a campus as I was used to beforem its right on a big street, so there is a lot of traffic.Hi everyone,
I just want to know the opinions of those of you currently attending Temple pharmacy school, what do you guys think of the program so far (ie. tuition cost, learning environment, etc) and the living conditions around the campus area. Do most students live on or off campus? Thanks for all the inputs.
