I interviewed there today and I don't see what the big fuss is about the area. If you have lived in a trailer on an indian reservation for the last 10 years I can see where your coming from, but it's like any other big city. Brian is a down to earth, personal guy which is what every ad com should be. If everybody else took their job like he did getting in wouldn't be such a hassle. I'd have to say if you are looking to be a competitive, competent dentist you should definately consider temple. Kudos to temple for a sweet program. Hope to get an acceptance but I think the chances are slim at this point.
