I just got accepted to Temple as a transferMar 02 2012Unknown
I just got accepted to Temple as a transfer. Right now, I'm going to community college in NJ, and I'm a bit surprised that I got in. The last time I checked my HS GPA, it was 2.5. However, there was a technicality (seriously) regarding that, and I took a ton of honors classes my senior year and did much better, so I assume it went up. I submitted an application after my first semester, and I got a 3.2. Not bad. I also wrote a pretty good essay and got an awesome letter from a professor of mine who got his PhD from Oxford, so that worked to my advantage. They got back to me in less than three weeks which was great. I had a lot of activities also. Temple likes that.

DO NOT go here if you need to takeOct 24 2011Business - Management and Administration
DO NOT go here if you need to take student loans out. The financial aid office is horrific. I have been trying to get my financial aid applied for 2months now. I have mailed my forms, faxed them, and sent and email with scanned copies twice and still no luck. The only responses I get to my emails are "Your bill is past due." I have tried calling them, but there is not enough time in the day to get through. The average wait time to talk to a person is 54 minutes. That is if you don't get hung up on 20minutes into the phone conversation. (I have been hung up on 3 times). The only time I managed to speak to someone, they said my paperwork is fine and my loans will be applied. I have "no reason to worry." That was 1.5 months ago and still nothing. Every person I talked to has had the same problems. There are even YouTube videos of students getting hung up on!

Seriously don't go here unless you are paying cash!!!

I had a good GPA in high school, weighted like 3Sep 26 2011Linguistics
I had a good GPA in high school, weighted like 3.85 or something, I can't remember. I also did very well on my SATs (2160), but that stuff didn't get me into Temple, it got me into Temple Honors. Temple is pretty easy to get into.

Nothing specialJul 30 2011Political Science
Nothing special. The school does not require the brightest students. As long as you are willing to pay and put up with the poor staff, you will be accepted.

Maintain decent grades throughout high schoolJul 29 2011Psychology
Maintain decent grades throughout high school. A GPA of around 3.2-4.0 in high school is fine to get in. The school is not SUPER tough to get into.
