Temple MedScholars Program Interview II

<p>do u need to take MCAT for temple medical? any requirements</p>

<p>hmm im pretty sure that you do have to, and i think its something like you have to get atleast a 9 or 10 in each section.</p>

<p>the temple interview for duq/temple is at west penn (temple affiliate) in pittsburgh, so i dont have to go all the way to phili, but i wont see you guys either. </p>

<p>btw my first interview was really chill, but then again it wasnt with temple, it was with duq.</p>

<p>jen - the only reason i'm goin on the 18th is cause its one day before the 19th, so its not like i'll be making another trip out to philly for anything. I'm waiting for decisions from UPitt, Drexel, Brown, and Temple. every other place that I applied to I got flat-out rejected.</p>

<p>highflyer - there is an MCAT requirement of some kind, i'm thinking 8-9 in each section, but it doesn't influence whether you get into the program or not.</p>

<p>i didnt get the second interview ...i thought the email they sent earlier was for it ...ahh confusing and let-'downing'...guess bs md is not 4 me</p>

<p>evilboy... someitmes i think the med programs are really random. like it makes no sense how u can get accepted into one, and not even interviewed at another. like how in the world did i get a second interview for temple, when i didn't even get a first at some other places.</p>

<p>exactly, I think the same thing.</p>

<p>I sometimes believe that they just sit there with a dart board with our names on darts, and throw them at the board.</p>

<p>the people with higher SAT scores have a couple darts, closest to the bulls-eye get in.</p>

<p>I'd imagine its the same with these programs, seeing as how for pitt, there are over 100 interviews, and 10 acceptances.</p>

<p>idk, as long as I get into one of them, I'll be happy.</p>

<p>lol i know what you mean evilboy. im sure you'll find out soon enough, gl!</p>

<p>I'd like to update this for highflyer - the earlier info about MCAT stuff was incorrect.</p>

<p>temple requires at least a 30 on the MCAT, along with maintaining a 3.5 UG GPA. the 30 on the mcat IS required for admission into the medical school. </p>

<p>Just thought I'd clear that up</p>

<p>so how did everyone think they went? i thought it was nice, relaxed, enjoyable...</p>

<p>every single person I talked to said they thought it went well.</p>

<p>like 6 or 7 of us at the end (all Indians, save like one guy from Widener college) sat down and just discussed random ass things. It was pretty nice.</p>

<p>it was weird cause 2 of the kids were there for temple's early assurance, where you apply after 2nd year of college before MCATs for a "guaranteed" admission into the temple medical school.</p>

<p>idk, I hope I get in though, cause temple UG and med school look and sound quite appealing.</p>

<p>yeh.. i thought it went well too</p>

<p>yeah, surprisingly my experience had 0 indians. there were a couple college students there for the early assurance. maybe this interview was just to make sure you werent crazy. <em>hopeful</em></p>

<p>when do we hear back?</p>

<p>sometime this week apparently</p>

<p>saweet 10 char</p>

<p>yea, I still haven't gotten anything yet. any1 else get stuff from temple as of right now?</p>

<p>nope.. not yet</p>

<p>can you templemed people post your stats? or throw some advice at a rising senior who's just starting this whole scary applications process.</p>
