Great Idea for this thread by the way, I think there are alot of people with good numbers like ours who just dont quite make it into that 3.7+ 168 + group
This should be a no brainer. If you are from the Philly area (like myself) and you can't break into the 170+ with a 3.0 gpa your #1 is Temple. Period. No matter who accepts you, you should go to Temple and I'll give you three good reasons why.
#1 Temple is strong in Pennsylvania and really strong in Philadelphia.
#2 In-State Tuition
#3 In-State Tuition
and by popular demand #4 In-State Tuition
I got a scholarship to go to Temple but excluding a scholarship the in-state tuition per year is $17,566. You can't beat that deal when other schools are charging well over $30,000 or $40,000 per year.
With your numbers stay in Philadelphia and try your hardest to get into Temple.
